“So I just switched to a new Hero 6 Black. When I try to edit the footage on my Windows PC, neither the Quik windows desktop app nor GoPro Studio will import the HEVC 240 fps video files from the Hero 6. Has anyone else run into this? Is there anything I can do to solve the issue? If you know of any free editing software, I would love to hear about it, or if anyone knows if GoPro is working on it, or updating GoPro Studio etc. Thank you for your help.”
