I am new to the community and I am somehow surprised and baffeled that I cannot see QUIK anymore in the apps arena on the GOPRO site. What will GOPRO provide to edit and process my Hero footage?
I have bought a good action camera and I am left with geting a third party product on the internet. That cannot be GOPRO's intention.

In their infinite wisdom, having seen that the world is dominated by 10 year olds posting videos of exploding cats to FB/Instagram on their mobile phones, the boffins of GoPro have changed the entire process to be mobile phone centric, with all sorts of really bad consequences.
See my post https://community.gopro.com/t5/GoPro-Apps-for-Mobile/Things-that-are-broken-unusable-or-dysfunctiona...
Worse in my case, Quik has decided that my laptop cannot process HEVC, so after having downloaded the video files, Quik chooses to hide them, so I cannot do anything with them anyway. My laptop, while in no way top end, does have hardware HEVC support (I checked), so Quik is just wrong. Anyway, this makes for very tedious and time consuming processing.
I am more or less ready to throw the GoPro 8 in the bin and keep using the 5 which Quik still works with. Way lower quality, but at least I don't have to spend days on my iPhone moving files GP8-->iPhone (WiFi) and adding stickers, editing and moving them internally GP App --> Pictures and then exporting to PC/Mac via USB/WiFi . Then I have to buy some pro software that will stitch all the 5 minute videos together because the GoPro software development team are misguided children managed by a an incompetent.
There is apparently no equivalent of "MP4 Joiner", so I am looking for a solution of how to stitch HEVC files together

The Mac version does not recognise the new GoPro8 file formats. Hardly surprising since it hasn't been updated.
Welcome to the world of GoPro where their software department is managed by morons.
GoPro: I am available and probably have more experience than your entire team combined. I am definitely astute enough to instantaneously recognise stupid software design when I see it, something obviously missing from your team.

Just mug GoPro off completely and download the free version of Davinci Resolve from Blacgic Design. A group of people who understand how to make amazing hardware and understand the importance of creating well supported software to compliment it.
My first GoPro arrived 2 weeks ago and the more I learn about how GoPro view their business and their customers, the less I'm inclined to ever by another.

I am out of pocket, but I got a fair chunk back.
GoPro software makes their cameras pointless paperweights.

Software for cameras is almost always an afterthought. It's on the list of nice to haves rather than an essential feature, but the fact GoPro put so little effort in does seem to be indicative of the fact they've got lazy and complacent at the top of their game.
Game on, DJI 😜
