Today I firstly tried to shoot 8K hyperlapse.
On the phone, I couldn't check how the video has been recorded.
However when I transferred to my Mac, it doesn't seem good.

I saw some issues on here that saying some grey screens.
Also someone said the rainbow screen just same as I experienced today.

There's one video that I can fix it if the video converted with PC Adobe PP, but I don't have any.
I only have Mac and FCPX.

So I can't take any 8K hyperlapse at the moment? (1080p works well.)

+ Isn't there any option to save raw files for the hyperlapse?

You can save the raw files but only for the 1080p version

I have the same issue. I uploaded the hyperlapse to Youtube and it worked fine. Definitely not the best solution but at least I can view it.
There's another thread about the issue and someone posted a video with a solution (if you have a Windows and Adobe Premier Pro).

What mode were you in. I tried to take a 8k Hyperlapse today using course lock. I got the gray boxes. After reading the FAQ on the Mavic Air 2 site I see that it says its only supported in free and in waypoints. So I'm wondering if this is my issue. What mode did you use the hyper lapse in?

DJI FAQ recomend using SPLAYER for MAC OS playback of 8K Video. VLC player may work as well

I haven't tried those mode yet... I was with course-lock as well.
I would like to try waypoint mode today.

Well... Do we have to wait for DJI to update or the OS/Editing tools to update?!

Let me know if you don’t have this issue in that mode. I’m hoping because we were using it in the wrong mode that this issue won’t show up when we use it in the correct mode

When you select Course Lock or Circle, the Hyperlapse automatically changes to 1080p

unfortunately splayer is just a player. it should work with editing tools like after effects, premiere pro, final cut pro etc.

Hi there, sorry for the troubles with the 8K Hyperlapse, 8K resolution has high requirement to the computer, some computers do not support decoding 8K video (8K decoder is not configurable on every monitor), it is recommended that you have a try with the device that supports 8K video playback to see if it could be played normally. We recommend PotPlayer for Windows systems and SPlayer for macOS.

How high?
I'm using 2018 15" MBP;
i9 6 core 2.9Ghz
32GB RAM
Radeon Pro 560X 4GB

I don't think this hardware spec is not enough at all.
