Time-lapse Video Choppy

I used my Hero 5 Black take an one-hour time-lapse. And final video is about four and half minutes. But the video is choppy like this:

What's wrong here???

Re: Time-lapse Video Choppy

If WDR is turned on, then it most likely is being caused by that. Although, I do agree that testing with a separate SD card is a good idea if turning WDR off doesn't fix it.

Re: Time-lapse Video Choppy

Strange. What SD card are you using? Is it from this list? https://gopro.com/help/articles/block/microSD-Card-Considerations

Have you tried with a different card?

Run a Manual update on the camera (even if you are on the latest firmware).

If the issue isn't resolved with a different SD card and/or the update, contact the GoPro Support Team. https://gopro.com/help/ContactUs

One other thing, that is most likely the issue, be sure you have turned WDR off. WDR should only be used when both the camera and subject are stationary.

This is an microSD problem, you should try to change it

Re: Time-lapse Video Choppy

Thanks to all! I think my SD card is good since it from GoPro when I bought my Hero 5, I will try to turn off WDR next time.
