Overcapture mode

Why is it that when I take video from my hero 7,it plays as wide screen anywhere I post it. Whereas the video I take from the fusion's over capture feature, play as if it's set on portrait? Basically when I make a video using both cameras the footage is different in size. 

Note: while using the overcapture mode I did change from portrait to wide.

Re: Overcapture mode

Hi @gazmina

 

Would you mind sharing sample videos so we can better assess this?

You can share it via YouTube, Dropbox, or GoogleDrive.

 

Thanks!

So the first half is filmed from a hero 7. Then the last part is from the fusions overcapture

Re: Overcapture mode

Thanks for providing the sample video, @gazmina. Using OverCapture will only give you the option to record and reframe in 9:16 Portrait or Square.

  

 

This is interesting. I figured that a workaround is you can keep your mobile device in portrait position until you're ready to record the OverCapture footage, and then turn your phone to landscape position right after you hit on the record button on the GoPro App. Moreover, I also notice that the video output will still be saved in portrait orientation though the footage is in landscape perspective. In this case, I suggest that you can use some 3rd party editing applications to rotate the video.

 

Anyhow, I appreciate the feedback. I'll pass this along to the team.

Kind Regards,

Ann

Re: Overcapture mode

Do you know of any editing app that would support reframing the video?
