Re: GoPro Fusion Studio damages GPS coordinates in EXIF header

the problem remains in both windows and mac for raw file editing.

Please fix it.

It would also be great if automatic alignment was applied on the photos through the gyro and also bearing but i am not quite sure about if the later is possible because i dont know if the fusion has a digital compass.

please let us know

thanks

Re: GoPro Fusion Studio damages GPS coordinates in EXIF header

Hello @trelobyte

 

See if the steps on preparing RAW file for rendering in GoPro Fusion Studio App demonstrated in this article will help with the observed raw file editing issue. We have not received any update yet regarding the reported EXIF data bug. Although the Fusion captures GPS data, it does not have a digital compass that can be calibrated. I have provided a feedback regarding the auto-alignment feature to the team as a suggestion. 

 

Thanks, 
Marius

Re: GoPro Fusion Studio damages GPS coordinates in EXIF header

Same with my Hero4 that I bought a couple years ago.  Bought it because it had GPS capability only to find out that it really does not have any EXIF capability.  I was hoping that if GoPro has indeed solved this problem, then maybe they  would offer an upgrade at a discounted price.  Needles to say that it has cost me valuable time trying to get this feature to work.  Now I know that it never worked with any EXIF capability!
