Why Does GoPro Studio 2.0 Convert Files to the GoPro CineForm Format?

The first step in any GoPro Studio workflow is to convert your source files into the GoPro CineForm format. This is very important and there are several reasons to do this. All consumer‐level cameras and many professional‐level cameras record in highly compressed video formats designed to capture large amounts of data very quickly and save that data onto an SD card or other portable media format in as small a file as possible. This is great for recording a lot of data onto a small space, but these compression formats are... Read More »

Why are the Files Converted with GoPro Studio Larger than the Source Files?

Most camera source files are highly compressed. Camera compression varies depending on spatial resolution and frame rate, but in general is about 30:1 and some formats are compressed even more at about 80:1! To get to such high compression, many computationally complex algorithms are used. When these highly compressed files are used as the source for editing, a couple things result: 1) poor editing performance, and 2) lower quality when rendering. The GoPro CineForm codec was designed to provide very high performance, and very high visual fidelity. Part of the technique... Read More »
