1. ReelSteady GO Optimization

[ New ]

I am confused about Gopro Labs firmware update for ReelSteady GO Optimization.  On the ReelSteady website is says: For anyone with a GoPro it costs $99 ...also there is a free trial.

 

But it appears you all (GoPro) make the frmware available for free...?

 

My questions:


1- Is there a cost to using this firmware or not?   (cost from either GoPro or ReelSteady)

2- If there is no cost and it is free, is it only free for a trial period? ...and if so, for how long?

I searched but cound not find answers.

 

Thank you.

The Labs firmware is free.  It includes many changes and enhancements for your HERO8, one of which is a change to the stablization that helps ReelSteady Go.  ReelSteady Go is commerical software, now owned by GoPro, but still a separate purchase to the camera.

Hi

Reelsteady is a software used after filming. You move the video file to tha computer and then render it with Reelsteady. The file must be shot with stabilization off.

 

Its very good, but it takes a long time to render the video.

 

Cheers!
