Re: Footage recorded in PAL video format don't open in GoPro Studio. How do I resolve the Issue?

What camera and what frame rate?

You are still using Studio? You'll be better served moving on to a proper video editor.
Much better free editors can be found here:
DaVinci Resolve https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/davinciresolve
VSDC on Windows- http://www.videosoftdev.com/free-video-editor/download.
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


And, just to be clear, you aren't trying to use Fusion Studio, right?

Re: Footage recorded in PAL video format don't open in GoPro Studio. How do I resolve the Issue?

Hi, thanks for the response.  In reply to your questions:

 

1.  I am using a Gopro Hero 7, set for PAL, with resolution at 1440, 120 frames per second.

 

2.  I am nbot using Fusion Studio, but Gopro studio.

 

Awaiting your response,

Hi @houdinif304,

 

May I know the specs of your computer? 

 

Have you tried changing the settings?

 

Such as lower resolution or lower framerate?

 

Thanks,

-Jay

Re: Footage recorded in PAL video format don't open in GoPro Studio. How do I resolve the Issue?

Studio works best with a max resolution of 1080p/60fps.  Studio is no longer offered, supported, or developed by GoPro.  You should switch to a better video editor like DaVinci Resolve or VSDC video editor, both of which are free.
