Re: Why this weird pixelation/grain HERO 6

To clarify, how does it look on your computer before you upload?

Re: Why this weird pixelation/grain HERO 6

OK, but what I'm asking is, how do the videos look straight out of the camera when you view them on your computer (in a decent media player, not Quik)?

Re: Why this weird pixelation/grain HERO 6

It's a good question also Smiley LOL I just bought the camera and for my patience and use the smartphone is the only interface to visualize the videos and edit them. I just watched the video on PC after upload them to youtube now let's how it looks like before any edit.

The video was recorded without protune with 1080p 60fps

 

Video edited using Quik app:

Video edited using ActionDirector app exported with 4k 30fps:

Look de huge difference between youtube and the file. Using ActionDirector app and exporting with 1080p 60fps I got a worst result, as the quik youtube vídeo.

Well I also have the same problem and there are zero solutions on this page. Just more questions.  Going to venice next month. Not taking the 6 because of this. Just gonna use old relyable Hero 3+

If the pixelation is coming directly from the camera and not from an editor or after uploading to YouTube or similar site, then there may be an issue with the SD card or the camera. If you are using one of these cards https://gopro.com/help/articles/block/microSD-Card-Considerations , have run a MANUAL update and are still seeing pixelation on raw unedited videos with a video player like VLC media player on a computer with decent specs, then contact the GoPro Support Team. https://gopro.com/help/ContactUs

If you are seeing this after uploading to YouTube or after editing, then the issue resides with how you are rendering the video. It could also be your computer. The Hero3+ Silver for example, records at up to 25 Mb/s while the Hero6 records a bit rate up to 78 Mb/s in HEVC, which is significantly more demanding on the computer.
