'Find Missing File' or 'File Not Found' Window Appears in GoPro Studio 2.0

You can get either the "Find Missing File" or "File Not Found" window in GoPro Studio. This can be caused by one of a few different reasons: The file was moved. The file was renamed. The file was deleted. If the file was moved or renamed, you must find the file either in the new location or with the new name in the Find Missing File window. Then select the file and click Open. If the file was deleted, you will need to re-import the file with the same name. If... Read More »

Are GoPro CineForm files compatible with different editing applications?

Yes. GoPro CineForm files use standard AVI and QuickTime (MOV) wrappers. As long as a version of GoPro Studio is installed on a machine, all AVI or QuickTime applications will be able to use the CineForm files. Note: Apple's Final Cut Express and Color applications are not compatible with CineForm files because they do not support the ability to import 3rd party codecs. VLC does not support GoPro CineForm files because VLC only supports ‘open-source’ formats. When the GoPro CineForm codec becomes SMPTE standardized (in progress), it is likely that VLC...

Can I Drag a Media File from the Computer Direct to the GoPro Studio 2.0 Storyboard?

No, this is not possible. In order to add a video file to a GoPro Studio Storyboard, it is required to first add the file to the Media Bin after it has been converted to the GoPro CineForm format. You can do this by clicking the Media button in Step 2 - Edit. Additionally, the video files imported into Step 2 must be GoPro CineForm files.

How Many Clips Can Convert at the Same Time in GoPro Studio 2.0?

The answer depends on how what type of computer you are using. Windows: The conversions occur sequentially. So one file must complete its conversion before another can begin. Mac: The number of conversions that can convert simultaneously is limited to the number of cores on your processor. So if you have 8 cores, you can process 8 videos at once.

Timecode is Displayed as Unexpected Values in GoPro Studio 2.0

In some cases you might see timecode displayed as unexpected values in the IN and OUT area of the preview window. By default, this timecode is generated from the time-of-day of the shot. For example, if the IN marker says 09:14:22:00, that is the time of day when the shutter button was pressed. This is used for syncing sources from multiple cameras and/or to keep track of shots if you are keeping a shot log. If you want the number to start at 00:00:00:00, open the application Preferences (GoPro Studio/Preferences...) and... Read More »

Can GoPro Studio 2.0 Perform Multicamera Editing?

GoPro Studio currently uses only one video track.  Because of this it does not support Multi-camera editing. This includes effects such as Picture-in-Picture or Chroma Keying (Green Screen).  Of course you can use the source video from multiple camera's, but it will need to be edited in such a way that it is linear (one video, then the next), both source videos cannot occupy the same place in time.

When Exporting a GoPro Studio 2.0 Project Only a Single Clip was Exported

If you were trying to export your project, but only a portion of your project was actually exported, it is likely that you had a clip selected in your Media Bin instead of your actual Storyboard. This causes only that individual clip to be exported. To fix the problem, make sure that you click on a clip in the Storyboard before exporting. That will put the focus on the Storyboard project and it will be exported correctly.

How to Remove Effects from a Video Clip in GoPro Studio 2.0

In Step 2 - Edit, you have the option to adjust many characteristics of a selected video clip. You can reset all of those back to the default at any time by clicking the "Reset All" button at the bottom of the Settings panel. If you want to reset only a specific setting back to default, you can click the title of the setting and it will reset that setting to its default. For example, if you make a change to Exposure and you want to reset it, just click on... Read More »

Why Are All of the Clips in the GoPro Studio 2.0 Timeline Equal in Size?

This is normal. The ‘timeline’ is actually a Storyboard. The size of the thumbnail is not a representation of the length of the clip. If you click on the clip in the Storyboard you can find the length of the clip in the Player Window by looking at the timecode displayed for the IN and OUT markers. Additionally the speed of the Play-head will change while playing over clips of different lengths though. It will play faster over shorter clips and slower over longer clips.
