Hi @goproguy365

 

Are you able to play other files from your camera on Quik?

Were you able to test if the file/s are playing through file explorer/ other media player?

Please make sure that your graphics card drivers are up to date.

 

Let us know how it goes.

 

Thanks!

Re: Quik not playing my night lapse i just imported

Yes, i made a regular video after to test that theory and the video played fine. After that i made another night lapse much shorter and it worked perfectly unlike the previous night lapse. One thing that could have caused this was the length of the night lapse which had over 5000 images at 1 picture every 10 second with 10 second exposure. What else could have caused this glitch was the fact that i had a portable charger connected to it which i'm testing right now. I can't play the night lapse in a media player because i'd just be looking at pictures obviously. My graphics card is up to date and so is everything else, i'm very technically inclined.

Hi @goproguy365

 

I am not certain as to why the longer file does not play.

If you still have the files on your SD card, create a folder on your computer then copy the sequence.

Add the folder to Media.

Quik should still recognize the sequence and will give you an option to play it as a video. 

 

For reference:
