GoPro launches Quik, create fast highlight videos quickly and easily

    GoPro cameras are awesome little gadgets, they let you capture our amazing world in amazing quality. When you’re finished recording, you’ll then want to share that magic with the world, typically through your social networks.

    This task has always created a workflow challenge that GoPro are working hard to simplify.

    Introducing GoPro Quik. This apps allows you to transform photos and videos from your GoPro, combined with media from your phone into incredible highlight videos.

    The app is pretty intuitive to use with a select, edit/trim, publish style workflow.

    You get access to GoPro-exclusive filters, photo video editing tools, themes and music to take your video edits to the next level.

    Quik replaces your GoPro app, enabling the downloading of media, plus remote camera control from your phone.

    There is one limitation I ran into, which is unsupported media. At least for now, you can use Photo bursts, 5K, 4K 4:3 video or 360 media. I’m hoping GoPro do add support for these in the future, particularly for those of us shooting in 5K.
