  2. Add one or more media assets via the Add Assets button.
  3. The asset file timestamp and the file time zone will be autodetected in many cases. If the autodetected values are not correct, you may change them using respective fields. Select multiple assets to change the time zone for multiple assets at the same time.

When using newer GoPro models, select time stamp source QuickTime Time Code = Start of video in Njord Player to make consecutive clips align correctly.
