Time Warp Video Being Broken Up

I have a Hero 8 and took my first time warp video today, a simple drive downtown and back which took twenty minutes. When i went to the app it had five videos on there, 4 were 5:20 long and the fifth was the remaining time on my trip. Does anyone know why the camera broke the video up into five parts? Is there a maximum time warp length? I was shooting 4k at 30X rate wide. Thanks in advance!

Re: Time Warp Video Being Broken Up

Hello, @hardyflare64177. The clips that your video was split into are chapters. Chaptering is automatically done in the camera when a certain file size (approximately 4GB) is reached. There is no way to adjust or change this setting. Learn more about chaptering through this link

 

You may want to explore the GoPro Labs firmware for your HERO8 Black camera. One of its QR-coded features includes larger chapters for fewer files in long video captures. Increasing the file size limit from 4GB to 12GB.

QR Codes

One more question mariustanya - When installing a QR enabled code feature, say to increase chapters from 4GB to 12, is there a way to reverse thee changes if they are unwanted at a later date?

Re: QR Codes

Hi, @hardyflare64177. if you meant going back to the non-beta firmware, yes. You only need to manually update your camera following the steps under Manual Update here
