Flipping video

I have a Hero 7 Black and one of the videos I recorded came out upside down.

 

Is there a way I can convert it to play the right way up?

 

GoPro Quik for Desktop will allow rotation for playback, but doesnt save it that way

 

Cheers

Hi @royalridge31316

 

Rotate the video on Quik for Desktop then you can share it.

 

If you wish to have it saved as a local file, you may need to use a 3rd party application. GoPro cameras create MP4 files, a format that is supported by many video editing programs. For other editing options on your home computer, we have had several customers give good reviews of Pinnacle Studio HD, Davinci Resolve,  Windows Movie Maker, Adobe Premier Elements, and Apple's iMovie and Final Cut X. 

 

Thanks!

Re: Flipping video

Thanks.  I used Davinci Resolve and was able to flip it and save it.

Re: Flipping video

Same issue as OP, but I'm looking for a issue fix, not a workaround for the output!

 

Grabbed a 7 Black, first time back with a gopro since the hero 4 was released. The quality and stabalisation is amazing... but, a decent proportion of my videos are recording upside down. It's super frustrating. I know I can use an app to flip them, but is there some sort of fault with the camera? Auto rotate is on, I mount it upside down, turn it on and make sure the screen is orientated correctly before hitting record. I then don't change the setup for the rest of the session, just use record and stop between clips. But some of the videos (usually around 30%) end up upside down (see pic where 3 of 9 recent clips were upside down). I never had this issue with the 4 - just set it to upside down and it was fine.

Re: Flipping video

Hi @kitm3

 

 

You may try this for now.

For the resolution/orientation fix you can try to reset the camera and update it again.

 

If issue persist please let us know.

 

 

Thanks,

Re: Flipping video

Nice one, that app looks great. I was really struggling with such a simple task in the complex video editing software! I've done a factory reset in the camera so will try it out next ride. Cheers!

Sure @kitm3,

 

 

I hope that it would be all sorted out.
