Choppy Playback in Quik (Hero 7 on iMac 5k 27")[ New ]
First off, I've searched around via google and gopro's website (terrible search feature for trying to look through old topics by the way) but haven't had any luck getting a concrete answer on this. Here is my issue.
When uploading videos into Quik and trying to play back to edit, video playback is very choppy. I am playing back 4k 60fps as that is why I bought the camera, so settling for 1080p won't work. I do have an external hard drive hooked up via USB, but even if I tell Quik to read the files from the desktop, it is still somewhat laggy. VLC plays back video perfectly fine either way, so I don't understand what the issue is with Quik.
Can someone give me an answer of what I can do to fix this? I like Quik due to the ease of use in editing and the ability to grab screenshots quickly, but I can't deal with the choppines.
For what it's worth, my set up should be more than suitable for handling these kinds of tasks.
