GoPro Hero 6 Quik editing software is not worth using. No wonder the share price is tanking.

Well well,

 

After all these years I finally bought a gopro.

Shot some videos.

 

Noice.

 

All in little 4GB chunks.

No problem... the gopro software will handle that.

 

Errr.... no it won't.

 

I have to use 3rd party software as the Quik program will NOT join clips together !

 

So I can't put the gauges where I like now ?

Can I even uses the gauges in the 3rd party software ?

Remind me again why I bought this ... oh yeah because I could put gauges on the screen.

 

Wow.....

 

Little bit inconvenient and just a little disappointing.

What on earth have I just bought here? a fancy dashcam ?

 

I now see why the share price has dropped from $97 to a puny $7.57 as I type this.

 

Not very happy with this.

 

The free "alternative" software offered is a Chrome plugin is kinda lame.

 

Or I buy Adobe Premier or go to the command line to join them.

 

WTF is going on here ?

 

Methinks Gopro shares are heading a lot lower than $7.57 if they keep on offering crud editing solutions like Quik (slow and rubbish).

 

From support.

 

"Further to our conversation on the phone, we aren’t able to give out any older version of GoPro Studio. If you’re looking for a non-linear editor to make your own custom edits with, you can you iMovie on Mac or Adobe Premere on Windows- or the free extension on google chrome.

Apologies for any inconvenience!

Many Thanks,"

Ouch. I like GoPro Studio well enough, and I don't understand why they stopped development. It was basic, but sometimes that's all you need. I honestly haven't worked with Quik enough to offer an opinion -- I use either iMovie, Final Cut Pro, or my old version of GoPro Studio that is still functional.

I don't understand why they won't make Studio available. Even if it's no longer actively developed or supported, they could still let people use it. It has some nice features, and I don't think Quik has the same capabilities.

I downloaded GoPro Studio last night from a 3rd party downloader, it's not that great anyway.

Re: GoPro Hero 6 Quik editing software is not worth using. No wonder the share price is tanking.

DaVinci Resolve is a professional editor and it's free. RaceRender is a very good program for GPS render. You can also try GoPro's Dashware. Studio used to cost money but GoPro purchased it for millions and made it free. This was many years ago. Initially it was a decent editor but over time it began to show it's age and became more and more buggy as GoPro engineers tried to adapt it to new operating systems. During that time better free software became developed by third parties like DaVinci Resolve. Eventually, it just didn't make sense to keep developing and supporting Studio.

You bought a camera, not software. I know some will say that the software is part of the reason to purchase a GoPro camera. However, the software had always been free whether you purchased a GoPro or not. It doesn't come with the camera. Complaining about needing to use 3rd party software is rediculous. If you buy any other camera your going to be doing the same if you want a decent editor.

GoPro provides Splice, Quik for mobile and Quik for desktop. Perhaps if there weren't better free 3rd party software like iMovie, VSDC video editor, DaVinci Resolve, and others, then GoPro would invest in a full fledged editing solution.

BTW, the stock is down because investors look at income vs expenditures. GoPro stock dropped as expenditures, such as Studio development/support, reduced net profit. Yes, sales have declined but not to HERO2 levels when GoPro purchased Studio. They are still selling millions of cameras and one of the highest patent filling tech companies. Expanding into media and supporting dying software has caused the bottom line to suffer more than anything else. GoPro is streamlining and we'll see if it works. But, bemoaning the loss of Studio is silly. Especially since there are much better software alternatives out there for free.

Hi,

Not sure if this will help you. I read on a thread that an older version of quik worked so I downloaded it and i can finally play and edit in quik Could be worth a shot. I downloaded version 2.5.0.290. Hope this helps.

What makes the old version better than the new one?
