GoPro App For Desktop Q&A

Hey Everybody,

I'm just starting a Q&A for the new GoPro App For Desktop.

Put any question below, and I'll be happy to answer them, and @mattb@jefft, and other community leaders.

 

First one I have is why is it called GoPro App for desktop? I can't video the GoPro from my MacBook?

 

Thanks.

Re: GoPro App For Desktop Q&A

Thanks for the reply @bschmals.  The login issue is resolved as I had already been advised to restart the computer.  As far as launching GoPro app/desktop I will try your advice.  I had earlier been advised to plug in the GoPro without turning it on first, wait for the red charging light and then turn it on.  When I do that the GoPro app/desktop does not auto-launch but - when I launch it by clicking on the icon - it does recognize the GoPro and goes to the Import screen.  That behavior is fine for me but the auto-launch would be nice so I will try your tip and turn on the camera before connecting the USB cord.  I'll report back after I do that.

 

Thanks again.  Helpful folks on this site.

Hey @Anonymous,

 

To disable the DesktopSystemTray, open the Task Manager by pressing Ctrl+Shift+Esc. Select the "Startup" tab and click "GoProDesktopSystemTray". Select "Disable" at the bottom-right corner, and you're good to go.

Re: GoPro App For Desktop Q&A

Thanks @chrisediting. It's called the GoPro App for Desktop to differentiate it from the app for mobile users. You can think of them both as apps, but one functions on computers and the other on smartphones.

Re: GoPro App For Desktop Q&A

Hey @chrisediting, I have one for you!

 

How do you add titles to you project? What are some of the different ways you personally use titles in your projects'?

 

Let's see what you got! Thanks again for posting!

Re: GoPro App For Desktop Q&A

Great Question @bhero.

Well first off to make custome tilte you'll need to open GoPro Studio.

After converting all your GoPro fooage you can click step two.

This step you can start buling your video or using a GoPro template.

To create custom title, you'll need to click title up in the top left corner.

Now a title will pop up in your video section to the left you can darg and drop your tilte into 

the timeline, after doing that on the right their will be some menues goivin custmizable choices

to font, size, color, and more. Some title settings I like using well making tilte 

are 96pt title size, Arial font, in normal, Itlaic is a neat look, I also like centering the title.

But this is allcustimixable in the settings.

So how's that @bhero.

 

Hope that helps.

Thanks.

Re: GoPro App For Desktop Q&A

Hi @chrisediting, that sounds great! Looks like you are getting pretty comfortable and familiar with GoPro App for Desktop and GoPro Studio.

 

Have you tried changing the font color at all or maybe even the opacity in the Font settings to the right?

 

Keep up the awesome work!

Re: GoPro App For Desktop Q&A

Thanks @bhero.

 

Yes I have, their is one thing that is very common on most editing software's I've worked,

and it's when you add text their is a center button or a left and right like when you right a document.

Is that not on GoPro Studio to center your text or I havn't seen it. 

 

Thanks.

Chris.

Re: GoPro App For Desktop Q&A

@chrisediting - You're right. I don't think there's an auto-center feature on the GoPro Studio yet. May be something we can pass along for a future update.

Re: GoPro App For Desktop Q&A

How can I disable the GoPro tray icon. I just use the program occassionally, and I don't want to use computer resources unless I open the program.
