Adding my own music in Quik Desktop?

How can I add my OWN music on quik desktop? Instead  of the pre package music from gopro?

Re: Adding my own music in Quik Desktop?

You cannot add your own music to the Quik Desktop app. Each song has its own dat file to tell the program how to cut the video to the beat. If you added your own song, this necessary file wold be missing.

The Quik mobile app works differently, so yes, you can add your own music.

Re: Adding my own music in Quik Desktop?

@optimus53 - There's not a way to add your own music to an edit on Quik for Desktop. For more customizable options in editing, we can suggest some other editors. VSDC for PCs and iMovie for Mac are good ones to take a look at.

jefft,

How come it was changed? The Gopro Studio has that functionality how come it was changed with quik studio. If so can we download the Gopro studio app instead?

Re: Adding my own music in Quik Desktop?

I would like to know this also. It’s pretty pathetic that we pay 3 to 500 dollars for GoPros cameras and they changed the only editing app that worked. I don’t understand why the option of adding our own music was stripped away but if you could please add that to Quik or your next editing program a lot of us would appreciate it. The music presets on Quik kinda suck.

Re: Adding my own music in Quik Desktop?

theres a nasty trick:

on your pc, go to c:\users\<user>\AppData\Local\GoPro\Music\

chose a subfolder and replace the mp3 with your tune.

But this only replaces the song, the video still will be cut to the original rhythm.

If you wan't to have an 'easy to go'  autocutting software, you have to use Quick for Ipad or Magix Fastcut (~ 50 USD but a really decent program).

Just another reason why GoPro is worthless, and we all wish we never wasted our money on these cameras.

Tap on music symbol. Tap on any arrow beside suggested music title. Then, you can get your device music library.
