Re: hero black 7 video looks like a series of stills

So what you are saying is that the desk top app GoPro had me get to do the editing of the video files is not compatible with the GoPro?

Re: hero black 7 video looks like a series of stills

Hello @foggywater10815

 

HEVC files are not yet fully compatible with Quik for desktop.

If shooting with a resolution that produces HEVC files you would need to use an application that is capable of viewing HEVC files.

See Programs to View and Edit Videos for reference.

 

 

Thanks!
