Re: Created clips have heavy distortion

Hello @epicflame75810. Quik for desktop should ot auto-stretch the camera's footage. Have you been able to rotate the video within Quik? How did it go?

Re: Created clips have heavy distortion

Yes, I can rotate the videos but I don’t want to have the choice of either watch a portrait orientation that is distorted or watch a landscape video with my head tilted to the side. I believe the fault is a bug in the windows desktop Quick. Please try recording a portrait video on a GoPro and then try to make a portrait clip on Windows Quik, I suspect you will have the same issue.
