Can anyone recommend a Windows editing software that works? GoPro Quick is the worst!

This is unbeliveable that GoPro still have'nt manage to write a PC software that works!

It's been years now that their Quick crap fails to do the most basic staff on a PC, crashes and exits without any warning or error messages and the only thing it does well is wasiting user's time.
This is beyond frustrating and the only thing worse than this cappy software is GoPro's support for it.

Shame on you GoPro!

Also, the GoPro mobile app and Quik mobile app are very good options as well.

Yes. Nothing but the standard "it's you're setup that's wrong" troubleshooting replies.
Uninstall, reinstall, update your OS etc.
Quick is even worse than GoPro's firmware for their cameras (I had every "Black" model since Hero 3 through Hero 7 and they all have firmware issues, freeze, turnthemselves on randomally, turn themselves off randomally, fail to change modes, etc. All temporarily resolve when taking the battery out).

What are your computer specs?

Re: Can anyone recommend a Windows editing software that works? GoPro Quick is the worst!

This happens on 3 different computers, one with Windows 7 and two with Windows 10.

All with 8GB RAM or more, i7 CPUs and plenty of disk space.

All with display cards capable of playing 1080p video on full screen.

Other editing software like Pinacle and Premier have no such issues.

Quick is simply badly made.

Re: Can anyone recommend a Windows editing software that works? GoPro Quick is the worst!

Windows 7? Old software.. Quik (current version) only runs on Windows 10

i7 ... Ok, that's good, but what i7? If it's an i7-9700, then yes, it should work.

8GB RAM is the bare minimum. What kind, DDR4?

Quik for desktop isn't great, but it works (just tried it to be sure). For a camera company, it's not that bad. If course, if you want a good to great video editor, you should consider I've of the titles I linked above. They are made by software companies.

Display card... The GPU? Which one?

Disk space..."plenty" is irrelevant. HDD or SSD? If HDD, what is the rpm (5,400, 5,900 or 7,200)?
