While GoPro now longer offers a GoPro Studio Download link on their website, it is possible to download GoPro Studio from an alternate source. But what happened to GoPro Studio anyway? (more…)

Also known as “Where did GoPro Studio go?” Last week, GoPro released a new piece of software called “GoPro App for Desktop”. It's a lot like the GoPro app for iPhone and Android, but it's for your desktop–PC or Mac. (more…)
I recently got an email from Jim, who asked, “when editing a video, is it possible to add a narrative to the video?” And the answer is Yes! It is possible! And it's possible to add a voice over in GoPro Studio as well. (more…)
Well hi! It's been a busy busy week getting ready to launch my online course that I've talked SO much about the last several weeks (months?). And… it's finally available and open for enrollment! Are you as excited as I am?
Normally, I wouldn't be too concerned with shaky GoPro video footage, because… it's a GoPro! It's ok to be shaky because you're probably using it for something really cool. But in my case, I had a 30-second time lapse of a sunrise from a cruise ship. So there is some shakiness happening in the clouds, on the horizon, and the movement of the ship itself. (more…)
You know I do tons of tutorials and how-to's on GoPros and GoPro Studio, but let's back this train up just a little bit and talk about how to install GoPro Software – GoPro Studio – on your Windows or Mac computer. (more…)
Ohhh you know what I mean. GoPro Studio… it freezes, it crashes, it even crashes while it's auto-saving sometimes. You know why GoPro Studio crashes and burns like that?
Although I had a few posts and pages back before 2015, this year was the year I hit my blog and YouTube channel hard. I posted a video and blog post at least once a week, every single week, for the entire year.
I'm not married to any one particular GoPro editing platform. I have my favorites, sure, but I looked to my community to tell me what the best GoPro software out there was.
Hey look at that, this is my 50th post!
Last week I showed you how to import still photos into GoPro Studio without it getting all weird and thinking you're trying to create a Time Lapse movie. GoPro Studio can be wonky like that.
Well this week, let's do the opposite. Let's save a still photo from your video, so that you can have it as a single photo.
Importing still photos into your GoPro Movie… this is a hot topic. I get asked this question a lot. A lot, lot. And I often rag on GoPro Studio for being crashy, buggy, and generally pretty bad at editing GoPro videos.
But the weirdness with importing photos to GoPro Studio isn't a bug, it's a feature. (more…)
Frames Per Second. This is something you need to take note of with any kind of video shooting, and it applies to GoPro too. GoPro does a lot of things on “auto” for you like aperture and ISO but FPS is something you'll need to know about with your GoPro.
Slow Motion can sometimes seem like a requirement in GoPro videos. Right? Chances are, if you use a GoPro, you're capturing something pretty sick. Or, maybe just your family doing fun stuff (in my case). Either way, your footage is probably pretty cool, and to make it even cooler, let's play with some of the functions of GoPro Studio – like Slow Motion. (more…)
GoPro Studio is the free video editing software that GoPro puts out. It's very beginner, and GoPro is always making updates to it (that's a good thing!). But I always get questions about why it crashes, or why it doesn't do what it's supposed to do. And I see tons of comments around the web complaining of GoPro Studio bugs.
If you have problems with GoPro Studio, here are a few things you can do that will FOR SURE squash the bugs…
Kids, I think it's time to have a little chat about GoPro Studio.
The truth is… it's pretty limited as far as editing awesome home movies is concerned. It's great to start out with, to learn what editing video is all about, and to edit your GoPro footage.
But it lacks some pretty basic editing functionality… stuff that's not even super complicated… stuff that you would (and should) want to do with your home movies.
So what prompted this chat?
Thanks for your videos. I just started playing with GoPro Studios and made my first edit yesterday!
I have a question. How do I keep the sound from the 1st clip throughout the entire video (it has multiple cuts taken with 2 different cameras)? It was my daughter's piano recital.
And this is a great question. It's not a complicated edit. It makes total sense! But it's a no go for GoPro Studio.
In this week's video I tell you a little bit about which programs you can do this edit in, PLUS one that I'm going to start using so I can teach ya'll how to kick your family vids up a notch or ten.
Look for some tips, tricks, and tutorials in using Adobe Premiere Elements in the near future!
In this tutorial, I show you how to export GoPro Studio videos when you're done editing in GoPro Studio. Then, you can archive it on your hard drive or upload it to YouTube or Facebook! Check it out.
In previous posts and tutorials, I have covered how to use GoPro Studio, how to put multiple clips together to form a movie, and how to add music in GoPro Studio. In this tutorial, I show you some more GoPro Studio tips like using slow motion and flux in GoPro Studio!
Time lapses are great in GoPro videos and family movies! And creating a time lapse in GoPro Studio incredibly easy. Seriously, it's like magic!
Time Lapse in GoPro Studio
When you import still images meant for a time lapse, GoPro Studio reads the timestamp on each photo and knows to group the photos together into one “clip”. Just like a video clip. If you have a newer GoPro and you shoot in Time Lapse Video mode, your still images are already put together into a video clip.
To get started creating the time lapse video in GoPro Studio, import your GoPro files just like you would any kind of video clips. GoPro studio will group your time lapses together similar to a video clip. Now you can convert your clips just as I showed you in in my post on How to Use GoPro Studio. Then you can choose your Advanced Settings to remove fisheye, set quality, etc.
In the example shown in the tutorial, I created a time lapse of our trip to Hershey Park.
