If you’re like us, you love your GoPro and taking it along on all your adventures. You capture amazing moments and have the best intentions of editing them to create memorable videos of your experiences and holidays. But then when you’re back to your everyday hustle, you keep putting it off till next week then next month and before you know it, last year’s Greek Island holiday is a distant memory on a hard-drive somewhere.
GoPro realised this was most people’s struggle so they did something about it. They created GoPro QuikStories which is a new GoPro App that pulls footage from your GoPro and creates awesome videos automatically. Game. Changer. This is probably GoPro’s best invention since the GoPro itself.
Man of Many was lucky enough to be invited along to the GoPro QuikStory launch with Nick Cummins, aka The Honey Badger and Women’s Sevens Rugby star, Charlotte Caslick. We flew in a seaplane to Palm Beach, hiked up to the Barrenjoey Lighthouse and had an epic lunch at The Boathouse. The day was accompanied by multiple GoPro’s (and shameless selfies) and at the end of it, we experienced first hand how easy and user-friendly QuikStories is.
So how does it work? You start, of course, capturing footage on your GoPro. The aim is to create a bunch of smaller clips instead of continuous footage. Anything from 3 to about 25 second clips are ideal. Then, creating a ready-to-share QuikStory is as easy as pairing your GoPro camera to your phone and launching the GoPro App. The app then automatically copies your most recent GoPro footage to your phone and creates an amazing video for you.
It is also very simple to customise the QuikStory. To name just a few edit options, you can easily add text, slow motion and speed effects, change filters, add music and adjust the video length. Another great feature is that you can add any video clips from your phone into your QuikStory.
The software officially launched today and if you want to find out more about it, you can visit this link. Something you should know is that QuikStories is only available for HERO5 Black and HERO5 Session users.
It’s never been easier to be the star in your own movie and share your cool experiences with the world.
