Tidbits of exciting live action recordings will become much more easier to proudly show, as GoPro introduces Trim & Share, a potentially useful function that will allow users to cut down their long videos into short trailer-like clips.
The high-end GoPro cameras often have amazing capabilities of recording full-length videos to the point where users can genuinely add a complex storyline, character development, an exciting plot twist and end credits in a believable way.
One of its biggest flaws was, and still might be, is the lack of editing options that have often made owners resort to other video editing software.
In order to make a step in the right direction, the company is unveiling its Trim + Share option that will allow users to cut short videos from a much longer recordings in small clips of 5, 15 or 30 seconds. This will enable users to quickly share precise moments and provide bits of entertainment for their friends to see online.
It could be a potentially vital function that many would take advantage of, as it eliminates the long loading time and a lot of data that might not be as relevant. While some might prefer spending hours in editing, the new feature will allow them to instantly cut out some exciting parts and quickly share them.
It will severely trim down on time and data usage, as there will no longer be a need to transfer the entire video in order to share with others. The Trim and Share will be available in playback mode, by pressing the new Trim icon (scissors), which will let you choose the moments you would like to limit in your uploaded clip.
Or, users will be able to access the same features through any WiFi enabled Hero camera through the GoPro app on their iOS or Android devices. It’s simple, it’s easy, and it could make a huge difference because users will waste much less time, as the full-length videos were dramatically more sizeable and took longer to transfer.
One tiny clip will go much faster, and it’s to be noted that the trimmed length will not affect the video overall. The feature will be available on HERO 4 Black, HERO 4 Silver, and HERO + LCD. All you need to do is to install the latest update offered for the high-end camera, or make sure to download the latest version of GoPro’s app.
It has also been announced that GoPro’s HERO 5 will be coming in early 2016, and will have 3D capabilities able to capture moments in 8K, with 3840×2160 pixel resolution at 60 frames per second. The upcoming product will set potential owners back with between $450 and $550.
