What do different icons mean in "auto" highlight? Also a feature request

[ New ]

So in the GoPro App, there are several icons that are shown on the video timeline when you go to Trim>auto.

I searched the web but I couldn't find a complete guide on them.

I know a "face" icon means the software has detected a face, a "sound" icon means detected speech. But there are other icons that I don't know what they are (like 2 opposite arrows).

 

And the feature request: Right now, we can either use the "auto" trim, or select "HiLights" and add manual HiLights.

 

1. I wish we had more control over the "auto" option, so that we could select which features we want it to detect. For example, I may want the "face" highlights but not the "sound" highlights. In a hiking/biking footage, it easily detects the face of a stranger passing by, and ruin the otherwise great auto-created scenery video! So if I had that option, I could easily just turn off the "face" HiLights, instead of having to go to full manual mode and add every HiLight from scratch on a >1hr video. If the "auto" HiLight detection feature would pass on the detected HiLights to the HiLight tool, it could solve this problem.

 

2. It would also be great if we could manually edit the "auto" highlighted version, instead of having to move into full manual mode. For example, I'm mostly happy with the "Auto" highlights, but sometimes I may just want to add a manual highlight to them, or just remove one of the auto-created highlights (like removing a particular instance of "face" HiLights, instead of turning off the whole "face" detection). Right now, We don't have that option and instead, we have to go to the manual mode and add every highlight from scratch. For example, we are happy with the auto version from a 2-hr video with 30 HiLights, but only because we want to add ONE HiLights, we have to disregard the auto version and go to manual mode and find and add HiLight to all of those 30+1 instances.

 

I hope we see these changes (which are small but add a great value) in the next updates!
