With today’s release of 8.8 on iOS, Quik users can take frame grabs from videos captured on their phones and benefit from a streamlined workflow for editing phone content in Quik. Quik also released five new GoPro Original music tracks for video edits.  

The Frame Grab feature is one of the most popular editing tools in Quik today, so we are excited to introduce this improved workflow for getting frame grabs from videos captured on your phone. Most smartphone users pull stills from video by taking a screenshot, but with Quik’s Frame Grab tool:

  • You won’t lose quality: Quik’s Frame Grab tool saves images in the same resolution that your video was captured in. Taking a screenshot captures only the resolution of the phone’s screen size, not the videos.
  • It’s easy and precise to scrub to the exact frame: Quik’s scrubber has single-frame accuracy, allowing you to step forward or backward with precision, to easily find that perfect moment.
  • There’s no cropping required: Quik’s Frame Grab tool matches the aspect ratio of the source video. Your phone’s native screenshot feature may require you to crop out additional UI elements.
  • It’s more efficient: Quik frame grabs deliver the same or better resolution in a smaller file size by saving frames as a JPG.

We’ve also made editing phone content faster by allowing users to access and edit content in their camera roll directly in Quik. Now, when users open a photo or video in the Quik “phone” media gallery, they can tap the pencil icon to reveal the Quik editing tools.

This Quik update also enables:

  • Auto-scanning of your GoPro camera for new footage and transfer it to the Quik app in just a few clicks 
  • Five new GoPro Original music tracks that will automatically beat-sync to your video edits
  • Applying edits to all media within a draft (filter, color, text duration and photo duration/volume)

The Frame Grab tool is available on Android today, with the additional 8.8 updates coming soon.
