Poor bitrate !!

Why my edits in Quik has only 15M birate? I recorded 2.7K/60 with 60M bitrate but after aditing in Quik its looses quality to 8M bitarte! Its crap! How can I fix this problem? I bought 7 Black to use Quik App but with this settings its not usable!

Re: Poor bitrate !!

@jaroslawn86267, thanks for reaching out. With the file export in Quik for Desktop, the current maximum bitrate is 15Mb/s as the video file only has an approximate one (1) minute duration.

 

For mobile editing, you can use Quik for Mobile. Check out this article for more information about the video quality output in Quik for Mobile app.

Alternatively, you can check this list of editing applications that work well with GoPro files as shared by a Hub member. 

 

If you would like product or tutorial videos to better understand these other applications, I recommend searching online video hosting websites (such as Youtube, Vimeo, etc) for published videos or other 3rd party generated content.

Re: Poor bitrate !!

Why only 15Mb/s?!?! Its look terrible! It looks like from 90's, not like from best action camera from 21 centry.

 

Editing video on mobile is dificult. Why mobile app can do better movie then app on much power PC?

When we can get update for Quik for desktop?

Re: Poor bitrate !!

GoPro Quik for Mobile and Desktop are designed to create impressive looking short video's "quickly".  They are both designed to work on as wide a variation of platforms as possible and to work with many specs of pc's (including cheap underpowered models).  This is to allow as many people as possible to create and edit video's.  As a result, it is designed to be simple and quick to use.  It is not designed to be powerful or as a professional video editing suite.  As a result, it's not going to offer huge bitrates, professional color grading, etc.

 

If you are unhappy with this type of quick user friendly software and need more control over your video's or increased bit rates, then you need to look at using professional video editing software.  You can try DaVinci resolve which is free, or Adobe Premier Pro which you will have to pay a fee for.  There are also other video editors out there if you do a bit of research.

IMPRESSIVE ?! REALY !? Did you see my example pics? Yes - Its very impressive! XD

 

I dont want to increase bitrate, i want my oryginal bitrate. Thats it!

I dont want more control, Quik for desktop if enough - but why such a low bitrate? Just add an option for older PC's. We have 2019r!

Why i cant prewiev my own movies with your software? (x265)

Why i cant add gauges on 4k/60?

Quik is such a crap that i cant beliewe that is product of GoPro - Its not PRO!  

Use other software is not an answer! I bought best action cam WITH SOFTWARE INCLUDED, and results are from 90's.

 

Thats it!

 

Just update the Quik and everybody will be happy. For now im still disapointed. GoPro is not pro.

Unfortunetly I cant return to the store. Meybe Dji has better software and support.

Actually when talanted film makers put together short clips using Quik, the results can be very impressive indeed.  A camera (and finished film) is only as good as the operator.

Since you've made a point to complain about a 15m Bitrate output from the software, yes, yes you do want to increase the bit rate of the software output.  Another reason for the reduction in Bitrate is to lower the file sizes of the finished output so more people have the ability to upload said clips, even if living in an area with slow broadband or poor internet connection.  Creating projects with a finished output of 60m bit rate would result in fairly huge sizes with information not even needed or visible to the end user.  

 

I dont want more control,

Apparently you do, you want to be able to increase the bitrate....

 

Quik for desktop if enough - but why such a low bitrate? Just add an option for older PC's. We have 2019r!

Not everyone has a top of the line pc and most modern pc's are bought at a cheaper price and therefore have less capable hardware.  GoPro would have completed surveys on what the average user has in terms of hardware and made the best software possible to support the majority of it's users.

 

Why i cant prewiev my own movies with your software? (x265)

This is actually a Microsoft issue, they are the ones who removed support for HEVC from Windows 10 systems.  Also if you weren't so busy complaining you'd know that this is a user to user support forum, not GoPro techincal support.  So it's not actually my software...

 

Why i cant add gauges on 4k/60?

Because you lack the proper software to do so.

 

Quik is such a crap that i cant beliewe that is product of GoPro - Its not PRO!  

GoPro is primarly a camera company that makes prosumer camera's.  Their "Quik" software does not claim to be "pro" software, it's simply a "quick" and free option that allows people to make short clips using their camera.  If you want "Pro" software, pay for it.

 

Use other software is not an answer!

Yes it is, it's just not the answer that you want and apparently you find this very upsetting.

 

I bought best action cam WITH SOFTWARE INCLUDED, and results are from 90's.

So two points, software options are included for both mobile devices, Windows and Mac.  Just because you don't like the software doesn't mean it's bad software.  And actually the ability to use embedded meta data within a videostream to be applied to post production for GPS, Video Stabiliztion for prosumer useis actually from around the 2012 mark not the 90's.

 

Thats it!

I doubt it.

 

Just update the Quik and everybody will be happy.

No, you will be happy.  The majority of users who rely on this simple non resource intensive program would actually end up being very unhappy.  Maybe you should supply some data facts and figures to backup your claim on that one.

 

For now im still disapointed. GoPro is not pro.

GoPro certainly is pro, in this case it seems like a Picnic error and those are much harder to solve

 

Unfortunetly I cant return to the store. Meybe Dji has better software and support.

It may solve a lot of your issues for sure.  For instance, DJI doesn't have a GPS chip on their camera's, so you wouldn't have to deal with trying to put gauges on your 4K/60FPS clips or any clips for that matter.  There's also users asking about alternative free video editors that they can use.........
