Re: Why gopro mobile apps exports 1080p even if source 4k?

It's unbelieveble this lack of fetures in GoPro App! Big difference between IOS and Android world, thinking that app such as ActionDirector CAN !!

Is there actually any possiblity to add GPS data in full resolution with any free GoPro app/program under Android or Windows?

Quik Desktop is not compatible with Hero 8, Quick android app does not support stickers and Android GoPro app does not export in full resolution.

Hi @exchinacam20 

Here some info about stickers in GoPro App > https://community.gopro.com/t5/en/How-to-View-Stickers-in-the-GoPro-App/ta-p/388235. Know that for now if you save a media with a sticker to the app and then select it to make a multi-clip edit, it will not have the sticker. You have to first SAVE TO PHONE, then import it from there for the sticker to be displayed.

 

If you can't display stickers that require GPS data in GoPro App it may be because the footage doesn't have data that are precise enough. Sometimes the GPS is locked then signal is lost and back on again, when this happens the data isn't reliable enough to use it in the stickers.

Check GPS signal on the camera make sure it's locked/activated (GPS pin icon is white not grey) before filming.

So first turn camera on (so no Quick Capture) and wait a bit for signal to be ok (at least a minute or so) and then start shooting. GPS will work best when outdoor.
