how to use Quik without Internet

I installed Quik and imported files.  Why do I have to be connected to the Internet to get back into Quik to see my media?  Can I use Quik without Internet?  Highly annoying.

Re: how to use Quik without Internet

@leet43441 - If your content is saved on your computer, Quik should be able to access it whether you have wireless or not. Internet is required to access any content stored in the cloud.

Re: how to use Quik without Internet

Thanks, Jeff.  But when I first start/load Quik, the login screen appears along with "The app needs an internet connection to sign you in."  Even if I put in my correct login credentials, the login fails, unless I connect to the Internet and then I can successfully login and THEN see my media.  So.... yes, the media is on my hard drive, locally, but the app will not let me past the login page unless I am connected to the Internet.  This is a show-stopper for me.  Is there a way to use Quik without being connected to the Internet????

You do have to log in once when you first use Quik for Desktop, but under most circumstances, you most likely won't be asked to log in again. The exception to that that I know of is if you're using Quik and have wifi, then you turn off or lose wifi, and then you turn off your computer, you may be asked to log in the next time you open Quik.

 

But Quik is not required. If it's a show-stopper for you, you can import the files directly from the SD card to any folder on your computer that you'd like and edit the files on any number of editing programs.

Re: how to use Quik without Internet

 Thanks, Jeff.  Well, yeah, if Quik is that dependant on the Internet, that's not desirable for me.  I'll go back to iMovie where the app does not care if I'm on WiFi, Internet, none of that. Thanks for your replies.  Cheers!

Re: how to use Quik without Internet

Mandatory log-in for Quick is pretty annoying ... (not only on desktop, even more on mobile devices)

I'm using 'iMovie' because of that, importing my pictures/videos into 'Fotos'.
