We all love movies, but sometimes piecing them together can be tedious. Apps have been autogenerating videos from our iPhone libraries for some time, but GoPro owners weren't able to enjoy that same luxury. Until now, with the latest version of GoPro's Quik video editor.
In this version, the developers at GoPro have added a feature that I'm sure many users have been begging for. The app will now create videos for you, based on the footage stored on your GoPro Hero 5
Of course, you have to have your Hero 5 linked up with your iPhone for this feature to work. Once you do, though, the app automatically downloads your video content and then scans it. When it finds video files that seem to go together, it stitches them into Flashbacks, automatically generated movies you can edit, save, or share.
Of course, Quik is able to set a musical background to your videos. That was one of the key ideas of the original app, and it's still around in the latest version. You can also add in photos from your iPhone's Photo Library, along with beautiful transitions and effects.
The app analyzes your selected soundtrack, and then synchronizes everything to the beat of the music. You can also add text, and then share the video easily with friends and family.
If you want awesome movies from your GoPro footage, this is the app to have on your iPhone
If it isn't good enough that Quik can generate movies automatically for you, you'll definitely love the editing features. You're able to do so much with your videos in Quik that it truly is a one-stop shop for creating movies to share.
You can easily trim video clips when you need to, either manually or by letting the app intelligently determine the best beginning and ending points. Yes, rendering previews takes some time after you trim a clip, but not as much as you might assume.
You can also add filters, text, sounds, and actions to your video clips within the movies. If you want to set a clip to play in slow motion, that's definitely a possibility. A number of filters allow you to create a particular mood within your movies.
There honestly isn't much that Quik can't do, but the standout feature absolutely has to be the automatically generated movies. The app brings these together beautifully, creating video montages of your movies that are perfectly suitable for sharing as-is, but can still be expertly adjusted and edited.
If you have a GoPro Hero 5 model of action camera, the Quik app is a must-have for your iPhone. It downloads your videos seamlessly, and then generates flashback videos for you to enjoy and share with others.
