Compile Time Lapse Photos to Video Now That GoPro Studio is Gone

Sadly, I only get an opportunity to use my GoPro once or twice a year. And just about every time I do, they've replaced or removed the software required for interfacing with my camera and I have to figure it all out again. I take a lot of time lapse photos with my camera. It used to be easy to deal with. I would import into the GoPro app which recognized they were a time lapse series (Quik still does this much) and then open then in GoPro Studio which would let me adjust and export to a video file. Now that GoPro Studio is discontinued (and I no longer have it installed), how do I compile these hundreds of photos into a video? Please tell me they didn't just take away the software without providing replacement functionality Apple-style...

Re: Compile Time Lapse Photos to Video Now That GoPro Studio is Gone

GoPro Studio reached EOL as it was unstable and not functional with many newer OS as well as not being compatible with HEVC and higher resolutions & frame rates. As there are many free 3rd party video editors available and very few people using the GoPro Studio app (rather than utilizing the better 3rd party options), GoPro discontinued supporting and developing the software (although they may be coming out with a new desktop editor in the future).

For now, there are many free options you can choose from.
VSDC on Windows- http://www.videosoftdev.com/free-video-editor/download.
DaVinci Resolve https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/davinciresolve
VideoProc https://www.videoproc.com/
HitFilmExpress https://hitfilm.com/express
ShotCut https://shotcut.org/download/
Lightworks http://www.lwks.com/
Avidemux http://avidemux.sourceforge.net/
Blender https://www.blender.org/download/
EZvid http://www.ezvid.com/download
VirtualDub http://www.virtualdub.org/
Fusion https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/fusion/motiongraphics
Lives http://lives-video.com/index.php?do=home

Along with the user manuals and help pages features on each editors web page, you can easily find YouTube videos for assistance with any of these editors.

Additionally, on a Mac you can use iMovie and on Windows 10 there is a video editor hidden in the Pictures folder https://www.techradar.com/how-to/windows-movie-maker-is-back-how-to-use-windows-10s-hidden-video-edi...

Re: Compile Time Lapse Photos to Video Now That GoPro Studio is Gone

Dude, that’s an awesome list! Thanks for taking the time to post that. I’ve been using iMovie, which is somewhat limiting for some of the stuff I’d like to do but it’s been good enough. I’m in the middle of a movie right now and just have one set of time lapse photos to compile for it. Do any of those applications specifically handle time lapse photos easily? Preferably where I can either easily change the duration of all photos at once or choose the target frame rate. I don’t want to have to do anything to one photo at a time.

Not sure I get why Quik bothers recognizing the photos as a TL and can play it as if it’s a video, even apparently share to YouTube or Facebook, but not export it to a file. That in conjunction with GoPro Studio was the only use I ever had for Quik (GoPro) in the first place.

Re: Compile Time Lapse Photos to Video Now That GoPro Studio is Gone

I personally use Adobe Premiere Pro, but DaVinci is equally as powerful and many people are migrating over to it. I'm pretty sure it can do what your asking.
