GoPro Plus- What else can it do besides store your vids?

It's sort of hard to tell from the GoPro Plus marketing material if it's a Storage as a Service offering or a Software as a Service offering or both so I thought I'd ask. Other than GoPro Plus being a place to store videos and free up space on your local media does it offer any other videographic advantages?

                - My PC is too sluggish to edit 4K video so if I use Desktop Quik to connect my GoPro cloud is the video processing still done my PC or is it done by cloud resources?

                - I have a need to compile videos that will be longer than 1 minute in duration. I understand that Quik has a limitation of only making 1 minute long videos so what video editing software does GoPro offer that can connect to my cloud video and compile longer duration videos?

                - Is there any 3rd party video editing software capable of connecting to my GoPro cloud videos?

                - Is GoPro Plus able to do a bulk resolution change of my uploaded video from 4K to say 1080 HD similar to what Handbrake can do? I see there is a way to select a single 4K video as 1080p but how about bulk convert and download?

                - When I click on the one of the 4K videos I uploaded to GoPro Plus and play it in the browser and click on video quality settings there isn't an option for 4K video playback. Why is this?

                - If I accidently delete or edit a video on the GoPro cloud can I request that the file be restored? Is there a way to revert? If there is no way to restore or revert then is there a way to duplicate the files in order protect the originals?

Thank you.

Re: GoPro Plus- What else can it do besides store your vids?

Hello @srwings. In addition to other benefits detailed here, GoPro Plus basically provides additional storage for your GoPro media. Video processing is done in the computer and the edited and captured files are then saved to the cloud. 

 

For longer edits (longer than a minute), you can use the Quik app for mobile. This is now integrated in the GoPro App. These mobile apps can access media from the cloud, and edited videos through the app can also be saved in the cloud. 

 

The videos saved to the cloud keep their original resolution. It is only when downloading to a device that an option to choose between the original quality and the compressed resolution is available. 

 

When streaming from the cloud or downloading via GoPro App/Quik for Desktop, the 1080p copy will be downloaded. 

 

When the file is deleted from the cloud, it will be permanently deleted from the cloud. Versions saved to your devices will not be affected. This means that as long as you have saved copies in the GoPro app, or in Quik for desktop, they will remain there.

Re: GoPro Plus- What else can it do besides store your vids?

@srwings 

 

Q#1: My PC is too sluggish to edit 4K video so if I use Desktop Quik to connect my GoPro cloud is the video processing still done my PC or is it done by cloud resources?

A: The videos need to be downloaded from the cloud service to your device (computer or mobile device).  You can download a lower resolution file to make editing easier on your system.

Q#2: I have a need to compile videos that will be longer than 1 minute in duration. I understand that Quik has a limitation of only making 1 minute long videos so what video editing software does GoPro offer that can connect to my cloud video and compile longer duration videos?

A: GoPro offers the GoPro mobile app and Quik mobile app for editing (less restrictions and more editing options)

Q#3: Is there any 3rd party video editing software capable of connecting to my GoPro cloud videos?

A: No

Q#4: Is GoPro Plus able to do a bulk resolution change of my uploaded video from 4K to say 1080 HD similar to what Handbrake can do? I see there is a way to select a single 4K video as 1080p but how about bulk convert and download?

A: No, it's done individually

Q#5: When I click on the one of the 4K videos I uploaded to GoPro Plus and play it in the browser and click on video quality settings there isn't an option for 4K video playback. Why is this?

A: What resolution options are you seeing?

Q#6: If I accidently delete or edit a video on the GoPro cloud can I request that the file be restored? Is there a way to revert? If there is no way to restore or revert then is there a way to duplicate the files in order protect the originals?

A: Not that I'm aware of (restoring deleted files/revert).  You can go to the Trim option (scissors) and then save a second backup copy if you wish.

 

As far as, "Other than GoPro Plus being a place to store videos and free up space on your local media does it offer any other videographic advantages?", the answer is yes.  First of all, it allows you to access your media from computer or mobile device from any location (with an Internet connection).  Additionally, GoPro Plus cloud service automatically recognizes and tags certain aspects of your video and categorizes them for easy sorting and searching.  For example, if you are working on a project and need a video of a car that you uploaded awhile back, you can search for the tag "car" and GoPro Plus will automatically pull up all videos that it has identified as having a car in the video/photo (automobile is also a tag option). GoPro Plus is still being developed and more features may be added in the near future.

 

Of course, the other benefits of GoPro Plus include up to two camera replacements per year and also priority 24/7 support assistance.

 

When it comes to video editing, there are 3rd party online tools but these are very slow, unreliable, and limited in capability.  If you plan to do any video editing beyond just simple Quik (GoPro app) mobile videos, then you really should consider investing in a decent video editing computer.  Video editing can be one of the most taxing processes on a computer, so you should consider the following as your minimum configuration:

i5 8700 (i7 9700 ideal)

16 GB DDR4 RAM (8GB is the absolute minimum, but 32GB is ideal)

NVIDIA GTX 1060 GPU (the newer RTX 2060, 2070, or 2080 if possible)

512GB SSD drive (if you can only afford a HDD drive, then 7,200rpm is the minimum.  SSD it MUCH better).

 

As far as video editors go, you should invest the time in learning a proper non-linear editor (there are plenty of YouTube videos to help you along).
