Quick aspect ratio

I made a quik story with 1: 1 aspect ratio
at some point I decided to change the format to 16: 9.


Why internally the video remains in 1:1 format?


I attach an image of the video for clarity

Re: Quick aspect ratio

@hardywave43734, thanks for reaching out. I tried replicating this and I was able to change the QuikStory format from 1:1 aspect ratio to 16:9 without the said issue.

Just to clarify, did you save the QuikStory with 1:1 aspect ratio before re-editing it to change the format to 16:9? Doing so will eventually create the black side bars since the original aspect ratio of the QuikStory video is smaller.

Re: Quick aspect ratio

Hi @hardywave43734 


Can you please confirm that you are using the multi-clip editing feature of GoPro App and not Quik App stand-alone app?

There's a known issue in GoPro App 6.0 > if you start your project in one format, save, reopen the project and try to change the format, individual media will keep the initial project format, so basically what you are experiencing.

Sorry about that, this is fixed in the next update.

Re: Quick aspect ratio

I have the same issue ..the app automatically starts a quickstory in 1:1 ratio. And all is good apart from the horrible ratio. I change it to 16:9 amd all ivideos remain good but the picture become horribly ugly (kinda like a zoomed in thumbnail) please fix this as to me its unusabke and has been for over a month . Also there are basically zero settings on the new app as compared to when quick was separate.
