GoPro Quik. Longer duration?

Would GoPro consider extending video duration to at least 180 seconds?

Re: GoPro Quik. Longer duration?

Quik for desktop has set audio lengths. If you look in the app folder for Quik you will see that there are actually separate audio files for each length along with a corresponding data file to tell the app how to cut the video clips to the beat. It's not as simple as just extending the video duration. They would actually need to create new audio files and associated data files. I seriously doubt this is going to happen. More likely, they will eventually come out with a new desktop app or leave things the way they are. For Quik style video editing without the limitations, you should try the Quik Mobile app. They are planning a launch of a new app very soon that will merge the GoPro app with Quik and hopefully make the process of transferring media and creating videos even easier. Be sure to go into the settings on the mobile Quik app and select the best quality and 1080p/60fps for your export.
