GoPro has just released its latest feature that further enables users to share videos captured on their GoPro devices. This new feature allows the user to create short video clips directly on the camera or mobile device for easy sharing, without having to take your files into another program (such as GoPro Studio, Premiere, or Final Cut) to select the clip, trim, export, and send it.
Now, by pressing the “Trim” icon in playback mode, users can choose a 5-, 15-, or 30-second clip from any of your recorded content and save it for sharing, all without transferring entire video files. On-camera trimming, available on HERO4 Black with LCD BacPac, HERO4 Silver, and HERO+ LCD, allows you to save your trimmed file directly back onto the memory card, adjacent to the rest of the video files for later sharing. As well, the in-app functionality will allow for instant saving to your camera roll and very precise trimming from all Wi-Fi enabled GoPro cameras.
In order to focus on the run, the set wave, the trail in front of you, typically you would just press record and allow the GoPro to catch everything. However, if you caught some epic content during that session, you may want to set it aside or share it to the world as soon as you stop recording. Before, that required you to download your footage to your computer, find your best moment, edit a clip, export and upload it. With the new Trim and Share feature, you can select that climactic moment on your mobile device and upload it to Instagram while you are on the chairlift headed back to the top, on the beach between sets, or sitting on the tailgate in between laps.
On-Camera Trimming Compatibility
The GoPro App Trimming will work with all Wi-Fi enabled GoPro and with videos captured in select modes only. It’s also compatible with iOS® (8 or later) and Android™ (version 4.3 or later).
