Re: Need Quick for Linux

(Continuing)
But it's all moot, since Dashware seems to have no support anyway. After all, users have to add a file from Quik to even make it work with the Hero7 Black. GoPro could have easily issued an update with the required file bundled into it.

And no gauges for time lapse video (they appear, but have incorrect readings). That may only affect a small subset of users, but my primary use is for time lapse, and I require gauges. So it looks like I'll have to record in video mode and convert to time lapse in post (using a full featured video editor) in order to have accurate gauges.

Just need a solution. 2 hours - Time Lapse with Gauges.

GoPro, your hardware is good but your software is the worst. No doubt you've heard that before.


After dropping about $500 on a Hero 7 Black, accessories, and a copy of Windows, I'm still stuck.

 

I have videos that run about 2 hours (which my GoPro kindly split into 10 clips). I need the output to be:

  • One video
  • With gauges
  • Time lapse

I learned here that your Time Lapse doesn't support gauges. No problem, shoot in real-time and then convert to time lapse in post, right?

 

Now I find that I can't merge 2 hours of video without the data extract failing. I even tried extracting data one clip at a time, and using GPDM to merge the data file. It gives me a variety of different ways to fail.

 

How. Do. I. Do. This? Just tell me how, please.

 

Righteously frustrated and almost mad.

I'm not in your prediciment, but I saw this message and I thought I would post this based on some things I read.  It's a bit janky because it involves using virtual machines to run software, but maybe it will help you make the asset that you wanted:

I really appreciate the effort and the suggestion. But I already took some of his suggestions (although not on a VM, I installed Windows on bare metal so that it could have 100% of the available resources).

 

I may have found a solution, it's a program called GoPro VIRB Edit. Oh, wait! That's Garmin VIRB Edit. Smiley LOL  I'll try it an let everybody know.

Re: Just need a solution. 2 hours - Time Lapse with Gauges.

So using Garmin VIRB Editor and Garmin data appears to be the best solution yet. A couple of observations, in case anyone else goes this route:

  • In my case, the GoPro video did not begin at the same time as my Garmin tracking. Garmin provides a brilliant feature to synchronize the video with the data. It allows you to select a datapoint and then select the exact map point where it should be. An intersection or a full stop is pretty easy to identify. 
  • If you have a pause on your ride (or other activity) and the Garmin goes into power saver mode, be sure to wake it up before resuming the video recording. I ride about 1/4 mile before realizing the Garmin wasn't tracking me but GoPro was recording. That left a gap in the metrics data.
