Re: What version of Quik do I need vs what version can I get?

ok, just to make sure I understand this correctly and completely, no matter what hardware, OS version, codec or video contaner, I can not use any current version GoPro Studio to edit any type of 4k footage?

 

If that's the case do we know when/if Studio will support 4k? 

 

Filmora is free but you get a watermark, so I'd probably go with VSDC.

 

thanks!

Hi @iainb605

 

HEVC files are not compatible with GoPro Studio.

 

 

Thanks!

Re: What version of Quik do I need vs what version can I get?

and converting them to H.264 means I can't import them into the GoPro studio, because this scubs something from the files?
