What about memory cards. I found a gap in my video because presumably the cam are wrote to the memory card about 17 min into the session which cut out a piece of my video. What’s the solution here so that I get a full 20 min or more video?

GoPro will always chapterize long video. Nothing is lost, it just splits it into smaller files.

I lost a tiny bit in the transition, not much a second or two but it was enough to make the edit jump when I joined them together. I ended up fading them together.

I just picked up a 128gb card, hours of video time. Be sure you donít cheap out, get the HD/4K capable ones.

Be sure you get a fast SD card. I'm not sure what your GP requires, but a UHS Speed Class 3 is the top dog right now. If your SD card can't keep up, you'll get gaps periodically.

I’ve been researching MicroSDXC cards and am learning quite a bit. I’m not sure if the card I have is one that came with the GoPro or one I bought. It is a SanDisk Ultra U1 rated. It looks like the sequential write speed is around 30Mb/s which is about a third as fast as the faster cards on the market. So I bought a new card and will see how that performs.

Do you have any footage on these settings? 30fps seems like a miss for motorcycling?

Just got my first video camera earlier this week, GoPro Hero 7 Black. Kind of a learning curve, first time using a GoPro, first time Elements, first time messing with color, music, fading, clipping, etc.

Have only used it twice so far, day after I got it in the rain and up 162 today. The cloudy rainy shots look like well, cloudy shitty footage with raindrops on the lens (but I used that 45 minutes of footage for about 6hrs playing with Elements trying to figure it out).

The footage from today, clear day 1080p/60 with the new image stabilization on in protune looks great. I don't think it's guna take all that much time in Elements to make a half way decent video????

Haven't messed with iso or flat yet.


Ya I can film in 4k(4k/60 I think) with the hyperstabalazation(or whatever it's called) on but can't edit 4k in Elements and honestly I don't think my computer would really be up to the task.

Curious. Why pro tune off? I find it does wonders for video.

Movies are shot at 24 fps to give you some perspective. I know we all think 60/120 fps is the best but 24 fps is just fine.

Been messing with my GoPro this morning(Hero 7 Black). Walked out my door and walked across the parking lot. Same 30 second clip 3 times. ProTune on max iso 800 color GoPro, same PT on, max ISO 800 color flat, and protune off max ISO 800 color gopro.

Put all 3 clips into elements twice to watch them together. Once unedited and once with auto color correct and "rendered them" what ever the F that means.

I didn't liked the flat footage, even after auto editing. I could barely tell the Protune footage from the Protune off footage. In the end I think the protune on GoPro color auto corrected is best.

Seriously, I could barely tell the difference protune on/off. If just messing around and no big post processing I'm not sure it matters. If using LUTS designed for certain settings then ya, I get that. I can't do that with my software and kinda suck at color correcting. I think I'll stick with protune though I'm not totally convinced it even matters.


I now have a grand total of 3 days messing with the GoPro so probably best to just ignore what I post. haha

ProTune Flat should bring out more detail from shadows. Depending on what your goals are, this could be important.
