How to Crop 1440 Videos Down to 1080 in Quik for mobile

by GoPro ‎09-30-2019 05:33 PM - edited ‎08-06-2020 09:37 PM

How to do it?

Both HERO7 Silver and White are designed to make life, and capturing it, easier and better looking than ever, which is why these GoPros default to 1440p resolution video - this resolution captures the full width and height of the sensor to fully capture the activity you're immersed in without worrying about mounting options or positions. If you want to crop to 1080, here is how to do it:

Heads Up: Exporting your video in Quik will create a slight intro/outro fade on your videos and also strip any telemetry data from it.

 

Android Devices

In the GoPro App, make sure you’ve saved your media to your device. Go to the Media section in the GoPro App, then long press the file(s) that you want to edit. Once you're ready, select the Quik icon on the top and this will import the files into a new Quik project.

Now you are ready to walk through the steps in Quik for mobile.

 

  1. Select the “RAW” template
  2. Touch the Pencil icon at the bottom of the playback window and do the following:
    • Select “Trim”, then Manual to decide how much of the video you want
    • Next, swipe to the right and select the Crop icon. Move the preview box up and down to line up your preferred shot
  3. Exit out of the Edit screen (X on the top left)
  4. Go to the Music section, swipe left to the end and select “No Music”
  5. Tap the settings Icon now and do the following:
    • Make sure the second box from the left says “Cinema”. If not, tap it until it does.
    • Next, tap Palette and select the box on the right which is full screen. This will ensure that your 16:9 video properly fills out the screen
  6. Touch the save icon and select the method that you want to save it as. To simply have the file on your device, select Save Without Sharing

 

iOS Devices

In the GoPro App, make sure you’ve saved your video(s) to your device. Go to the Media section by tapping the media button on the bottom-right corner of the home screen. Press the checkbox on the top-right corner which will let you select the file(s) that you want to edit. Select the Quik icon on the bottom-left and this will import the files into a new Quik project.

Now you are ready to walk through the steps in Quik for mobile.

  1. Find and select the “RAW” theme
  2. Tap the video to reveal a pencil icon. Tap that and do the following on the next screen:
    1. Select “Trim”, then choose “Manual” to decide how much of the video you want to edit
    2. Tap OK, then select Adjust. Move the preview box up and down to decide which part of the media you want to be able to see, then Tap OK.
  3. Select the Music icon, swipe left to the end and select “No Music”
  4. Tap the settings Icon(wrench) and select “Format”. Make sure “Cinema” is selected.
  5. Touch the save icon and select your preferred method for saving the video. To simply have the file on your device’s local storage, select “Save Without Sharing”

We have been hearing some desire for options, specifically for those looking to shoot in 1080p. In December, we’ll be launching a software update that allows the default video resolution to be either 1440p or 1080p on both HERO7 Silver and White. Until then, the GoPro and Quik apps allow users to create 1080p content from native 1440 captures.
