Alternative Video Editor with FLUX Mode

Hi guys, I am new at video editting and I used GoPro Studio once or twice, and I really like the smooth slow motion effect you can get FLUX mode. 

So since GoPro Studio is no longer downloadable, I want to ask that is there any other software with settings like GoPro Studio's FLUX mode?

Re: Alternative Video Editor with FLUX Mode

For scenes that you want "Super Slow Motion" it's better to record in a higher frame rate 120fps or 240fps and then drop it to 24fps (or 30fps), then it is to use some like FLUX. The way editors attempt to smooth super slow motion when their isn't enough frames is to redraw new frames to supplement. GoPro DOES NOT use this technique. In their older videos they may have used twixter, but mostly it was accomplished with hours of re-framing work in After Effects (very complicated for beginners).

DaVince can seem a little overwhelming at first, but if you have a decent computer system and put in the initial time to learn it (plenty of YouTube videos), the payoff is more than worth it. I would stick with recording in 1080p. The file size is smaller, it's easier to work with, and there aren't many advantages to recording in higher resolutions. Unless you plan on doing a lot of re-framing and scaling of your video, 4K is overkill for sure.

Re: Alternative Video Editor with FLUX Mode

Pretty much any decent editor has a form of FLUX for smoothing out slow motion clips that have been dropped below 16-24fps. Are you looking for a free editor or are you willing to pay for it?

For a free editor you should start with DaVinci Resolve. If that works for you, then you really don't need to look any further (Free or Paid) as you will be working with an actual professional non-linear editor. It might take some time getting used to, but there are plenty of YouTube videos to help you along.

Another fun free editor to try is HitFIlm Express. The free version is limited, but has plenty of capability to get you going and is more than enough for basic editing and effects.

If your computer isn't up to specs and you are having trouble running the above programs, then you might want to try VideoProc or VSDC video maker.

For a paid video editing suite that will also allow you to do amazing effects and also photo and web, then the Adobe Creative Cloud is the best deal for having the ability to do just about anything.

What exactly are you trying to accomplish? What fps are you filming in and how slow do you want to make it (and for how long)? Also, what camera are you recording with?

Re: Alternative Video Editor with FLUX Mode

[ Edited ]

As a beginner, I would try free editor for now before getting deeper. I heard about DaVinci Resolve but it looks really complex to me, maybe i will try it out. I am currently using Filmora to make simple videos for my own. But I feel like it is not enough, feels like something is lack in Filmora for me to achieve a better quality video

 

For answering your questions,

What exactly are you trying to accomplish?

I really love the way that Gopro edits their video (like how they sync music with the actions) and I am trying to craete my own with the style like theirs, and quality too. There are some points where I want to make super slow mo which exceeds the minimum fps, that could be smoothen with something like FLUX mode. (as I can't find it anywhere in Filmora)

 

What fps are you filming in and how slow do you want to make it (and for how long)?

I mostly filmed in 60fps with 2.7k/4k, so I can slow it to 30fps 

 

Also, what camera are you recording with?

I am using GoPro Hero 7 Black
