The Quik app is getting an update today that makes highlighting your favorite moments even easier. By leveraging the metadata within a GoPro video clip, known as GPMF or GoPro Metadata Format, Quik now intelligently recommends key moments, known as Auto HiLights, beat-syncs them, and automatically compiles them into an edit.
But why callout GPMF? Well, it’s pretty much the fuel powering the Quik engine.
Think about it this way: If you record a video jumping into a pool, there is a change in your GPS path, speed, elevation and g-force. There is also a change in scene, camera temperature and, most likely, your facial expression. Your GoPro is intelligently capturing every single one of these details and recording it as GPMF housed within the .MP4 file.
The Quik app is designed to read this GPMF data to automatically select key moments to serve up to you as Auto HiLights during the editing process. From there, you can refine these moments further using the updated Trim tool. Ultimately leaving you with one mind-blowing multi-clip edit that took a mere few minutes to upload, edit and share, all within Quik. Let’s break down today’s updates a bit further.
