As the title says - When I export my .360 files files using the GoPro Player OSX app, the resulting Equirectangular files have frames that are nearly duplicated every few seconds. It seems to be a stitching / rendering issue, as the native .360 files do not have the duplicate frames. The end result is choppy, unwatchable footage. Is anyone else experiencing this?

Hello @rapidstoke2025. A new version of the GoPro MAX Player has been released last week with the following bug fixes and improvements:
- Fixed stabilization issue for videos without World Lock.
- Fixed horizon leveling issue for MAX TimeWarp and TimeLapse videos that were trimmed.
- Squashed a few bugs and made a couple of enhancements.
Let us know if you still observe the same issue after updating. We would love to hear back from you. Thanks!
I spent several hours yesterday exporting my footage via GoPro Player, only to realize the footage is choppy as well. This is after hours of (unsuccessfully) trying to export footage with the Max Exporter on my PC, so neither Mac or PC software is working for me atm. I'm really at a loss as to what to do with all this 360 footage I need to edit this week.
Question for you - which SD card are you using? Is it the standard 64GB card that came with your camera? I need to do some testing to confirm this, but I think my footage was choppy when I used my SanDisk 128GB card. Upon switching back to the standard 64GB card, my issues were resolved.
Again, I haven't rigorously tested this to confirm, but wondering if something similar applies to you as well.
GoPro Player version: 1.0.2
I'm wondering if it's perhaps a metadata issue. When I import the equirectangular footage into Premiere, it shows up as 24 fps, when the footage was shot at 23.976.
The issue I am / was seeing is in the native equirectangular file itself.
Oh interesting. If it's the native footage that has the choppy playback then I could see it possibly being a memory card issue. My issue is with the exported file. For some reason Premiere thinks it's 24 instead of 23.976. Maybe the player is inserting frames? I tried interpreting the footage to 23.976. It's a bit better but motion still has a bit of jerkiness.
