One missing feature

There seems to be no way to seamlessly continue a view from two separate but seamless video files (GoPro separates files at 4GB size threshold). This is obviously not a problem with regular video but in the 360 mode there is no way to tell the first frame of the second file to match exactly the last frame of the previous file.

Terrible UI and UX

Not consistent in usability; tools disappear and I can't get them back, keyframes constantly change to freeze frame option, then warp option, and I can't get back to the main edit. Absolutely no solid instructions on how to operate... I found one video online that **seems** GoPro-branded with logo, but flies through edit procedures with goofy music playing and abslutely no time to see how the edits are done.

I only hope I can bring the raw files into Premiere Pro and have a chance at editing with keyframes. This app makes me seriously reconsider my purchase of the camera, but it was company money. I only hope I can get some use out of it to justify the purchase.

Get a clue, GoPro! Have some online documentation, some downloadable instructions, and a better UI/UX. I'm blown away as to how bad this is... maybe it's not compatible with Mac OS X Monterrey?? Do I need to use Windows to work with it? That would be absurd, but quite possible.

This app does not work (update- Like the other app Quik)

** Update**
They have a login aspect on this app but it is not used like it is in Quik for logging into your GoPro subscriber account. You download the app and you can then download your media and edit in this app. So you don't need to login. They might make this more clear for users so that confusion doesn't occur.

It also doen't work with media you have in your subscription unless you download it first. For that reason I might stick with Quik. I hope that they provide a desktop app similar to Quik to make the process seamless.
***previous confused complaint***
I downloaded this app. It asked for a login and I put my login for my GoPro Subscription. It doesn't work. The support team for GoPro is beyond clueless. I'm many emails, calls and screenshots in and they have no clue on the process. I had expected and activation screen prompt according to the directions but got a login instead. There seems to be some disconnect on if this is a paid application or not. On the App store it is a free download. Do I need to pay to activate it? I don't know. The SOBs and GoPro can't advise. I'm going to try to contact someone in the United States that works for GoPro because their oversight of the offshore support team is terrible.
