maximum video length

[ New ]

Hi,

 

i've been editing a 'story' in the gopro ios app, which works really well, but the maximum video length seems to be 2min 11secs.  Is there any way i can produce a longer video?

 

Thanks in advance,

Tony Flynn

Hello @spiryhero01168. The maximum video length will depend on the song used. Also, you can only import one song in the multi-clip edit, so if your track is shorter than your edit, there will be no music at the end.

 

A workaround is to create several videos. We can call these "chapters", one for each song to be combined in the end. 

  • Make video A with music A and export it to your camera roll/device. 
  • Make video B with music B and export this video as well to your camera roll/device. 
  • Create a third video: select video A and video B. 
  • Choose video style RAW 
  • iOS Devices - For each individual video in the timeline select Manual under Trim option. 
  • Android Devices - For each individual video in the timeline select Manual under Trim option so the video is played in full. 
  • Make sure that you remove the current song (Music/No Music). 

 

Hopefully, this helps.

Hi,

Thanks for that, that’s really helpful and I’ll give it a try.

Chat support didn’t seem to know the answer and suggested I install quick for desktop.

Thanks again
