This is like listening *nix weenies explaining how to "do it the *nix way".
Yeah, I admit I can pay money to buy my way out if GoPro's ineptitude. I am unwilling to do so, and I sold the camera - I won't miss it and I'll live without the improved image capture quality.

Just to be clear - you bought an action cam (which, as you write yourself, is good) and not a video editing program! QUICK can still be downloaded ... if you want to make life difficult for yourself, keep working with it ... Or use an appropriate editing program. They range from free to very expensive ...

This is a very trivial requirement.
Time yourself and see how long it takes you and how many bits of software you need.

To be fair, a typical fanbois response. Lots of those here I notice.
I did make an effort to clearly define the issues in a separate post. Plenty of reproducible bugs and lots of piss poor design. I have fired a lot of engineers for less, and more than one for being a --bleep-- like you.
But hey, I am sure you can make excellent exploding cat videos for Instagram with your Hero8 - a task for which the device is well suited, using the software provided.
Have a great life.

@philipl3616 install LAB FW 1.7 - You can use it to create long files! The clips are now 12GB instead of about 4GB. So instead of about 5 minutes with 4k60 it is then about 15 minutes. With 30 minutes of recording only 2 files! Then (and don't do that!) I would never use an APP or Qick ... I use RaceRender for the GPS data! With it I can merge the two files, add GPS overlays as desired and also crop the beginning and end ... But to really do a video cut I use a video cutting program such as. daVinci or PowerDirector. By the way, I have 5 different action cams, a "normal" video camera and a system camera for photos, with which you can also record videos in FullHD with 50fps ... NO camera has an editing program attached, apart from the Panasonic they don't even have their own APP for remote control via WLAN - only one generic that supports different brands ... Seen in this way, the GoPro Hero with 4k60fps is SUPER for the price and the image quality! I don't know if DJI will do better for less money. I know that Blackmagix makes it much better for a lot more money - but that's a different kind of thing ...
Recording videos, copying them to the PC and then editing them with an editing program from a third manufacturer is a completely normal procedure ... If you have the requirement that everything must work faster and easier, maybe recording videos is not your hobby ...
