GoPro Edit Software

GoPro Studio is a free piece of editing software that looks pretty interesting. There are templates that allow you to drag and drop your footage onto pre-edited sequences. This is great for people who have never edited, but in addition, the colour correction, speed options and file conversion capabilities make this look like a decent iMovie competitor.

Those boys at GoPro are a clever bunch. The hardware was quite limited for a number of years and it was fucking difficult to use, but the results were always amazing. Time-lapse, wide-angle, hard-as-nails, water-proof. What more could you ask for? Well, now you can monitor and control the Hero 3 on your phone as well as shoot 120fps. Well done GoPro. I'm a big fan. And this editing software is going to allow so many GoPro users to quickly get their footage edited and up on the net. And that's one of the problems isn't it? You shoot all this stuff and never have time to edit it. This software should alleviate that problem for many an amateur film maker. Word.

  1. Have you actually used it, though? Last time I tried I basically gave up. I could just about coax it into applying a LUT to my the footage from my ProTune-equipped Hero 2, but it couldn't really play the footage. I ended up giving up on pre-processing anything and doing it all in FCPX.

    That was last summer. Have they updated the software since then?
