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.

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...

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

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.

Is it Possible to Create Your Own GoPro Studio 2.0 Templates?

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.

How To Import 3D Video in GoPro Studio

The process for importing 3D video into GoPro CineForm files is as follows: Copy the “100M3D_R” and the “100S3D_L” folders from the DCIM folder on the SD card to a location on your computer. It is very important to place both these folders in the same location. For example, create a new folder on your computer that represets the event; for example, “bike ride” and then copy both the LEFT and RIGHT eye camera folders into that same folder. In the top folder (“bike ride”) you should see both “100M3D_R” and... Read More »

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.
