SD Card/Quick Help and Advice

Hi - made the mistake of recording to a 128GB SanDisk Ultra Plus SD card when on vacation

 

in the past, i would put the files into studio (or more recently Quik) and export them and then use Final Cut Pro X to edit and for the finalized video.

 

Clips are super shaky when directy importanted into FCP X. I have over 30 min of footage so making (30) 1 minute videos in Quik is not ideal. 

 

does an alternative if i ultimately want to edit in FCP X but am trying to get rid of the shaky footage? Should I use different editing software?

 

TIA

Re: SD Card/Quick Help and Advice

Hi @bearcat1033

 

Ultra cards are not recommended to be used with GoPro cameras. They may work initially but they are observed to cause issues with the camera eventually. It is best to use one of the recommended cards on the list here: SD Cards that Work with GoPro Cameras

 

Once you have a recommended card, please run a manual update. https://gopro.com/en/us/update

Let us know how it goes.

 

Thanks!

Re: SD Card/Quick Help and Advice

EJ,

 

I actually do have a recommended card but is there anything I can do about getting the current, shaky files onto the new card? If so, is that using the GoPro or on my desktop?


Thanks

Re: SD Card/Quick Help and Advice

Hi @bearcat1033

 

You may try to save the files manually.

Once the files are saved on your computer, you can copy/transfer the files to your other SD card.

 

Thanks!
