      Hi all, I’m new here so thanks in advance for your help. Here’s my problem. I have footage from my go pro hero 7 black. When I upload the videos and play them through windows media player it plays back choppy. I downloaded VLC MEDIA PLAYER and that corrected my issues when playing back my footage. Now as I try and edit them using windows video editor it plays back choppy while trying to edit. Go pro settings are 4k at 60fps 16:9 ratio. My laptop is an hp envy x360 m6. Any help on fixing this issue?

      Are you using Windows Movie Maker to edit a 4K 60fps footage?

      I’m using windows video editor. Same thing? I downloaded davinci and hit film express since those were free but the footage still came out choppy when placing them in the storyboard on both programs.

      HP envy x360 m6 is capable to edit 4K videos, but it is still hard to get smooth real-time playback and rendering for those kinds of high compressed media.
      My experience might work for you cause I also use Hitfilm/Premiere to edit drone footages, (60/120fps), 4K. My way to edit short clips is lowering the playback resolution. For some long videos, I transcode them to editing friendly formats, mostly CineForm.

      I always wondered if windows editor is worth wasting time on. Is it any good?

      Window editor is not so bad, not as complex as Vegas, but will do anyway. I wish there were screen recording function. So far I’ve been using this app Maybe you can recommend something else?

      Still i think few people are using windows movie maker now, because there’re many free and not-complicated third-party video editors like OPENSHOT and VSDC. Choppy editing, in my point of view, is caused by your PC performance? So why not polish it in another more powerful computer? By the way, if you need to screen record the clip, VLC gets the capture feature, and the screen recorder I’m using now is called RecMaster, which costs less than movavi one…
