GoPro MAX Exporter - Change World Lock Direction

[ New ]

On the GoPro MAX Exporter, there is a checkbox for World Lock.  This is great to provide a "true north" and minimize the jitter of the camera from movement.  While this feature works as expected, it only allows for a pre-determined fixed direction as chosen by the software.  How to we change that fixed direction before we export?

 

If I uncheck the box, the footage is very jerky and still does not allow me to choose the angle to view from just presents from a forward direction of the camera.

 

In the Fusion Studio software, we had the option of determining the starting viewing position of the exported video and it stablized beautifully.  This experience feels like a step backwards.

MAX Exporter locks the footage in a default direction. Once your footage is converted, you can adjust the direction using editing software like Adobe Premiere.

Thanks for the suggestion. You assume the everyone uses Adobe Premiere as their video editor of choice.
