Re: GoPro Max has no editing software for Windows

https://static.insta360.com/software/Studio/Windows/Insta360%20Studio%202019_Winx64_3.4.2_20191126.e...

 

I have a Max and a Windows PC.

 

You can download the Insta360 Studio software for free. It will allow you to reframe your max footage.

Re: GoPro Max has no editing software for Windows

Hi

 

Please explain how you do it. I tried it but Insta360 Studio 2019 doesn't support GOPRO 360 format. There is possible to convert movie to mp4 using GoPro Max Exporter but only to 4K resolution (not native GoPro MAX 5,6 K possible) and then reframe in Insta360. Did you mean this solution?

 

Thanks

Chris

Re: GoPro Max has no editing software for Windows

You must first export to MP4 before using Insta360 studio. It will not process the GoPro 360 proprietary files.

Use GoPro max exporter to create the MP4s.

Completely a waste of money.  They should make it VERY clear this is an APPLE/MAC product ONLY.

Reframe 360 is not longer available.

I'll never buy another GoPro. I'd join a law suit, but I doubt enough people would get on board. Dreadful behaviour. Insta next time for me.

Re: GoPro Max has no editing software for Windows

Keep calm :) Like you, I am dissatisfied with this situation but it is not without a solution. There is a few options to work on Windows with GoPro Max 360 files:

1. Paid software from Adobe (Premiere Pro) with GoPro plugin (for me too expensive solution)

2. Free software DaVinci Resolve (for me too high hardware requirements - it is impossible to work on my computer)

3. Free software from Insta360. It works for me.

 

Look at my results here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqjNoVGZYK8zgbRhOysDFuA

 

But first you have to convert files from camera using GoPro Max Exporter (it works). In case of using Adobe or Resolve you can convert using max resolution 5,6K, but for Insta360 you have to convert using only 4K.

 

A bit complicated workflow is: 

1. Converting files using MaxExporter to 360 flat movie 4K (mp4)

2. Reframing file by file using Insta360 software

3. Creating one movie from a few files from step 2 in LightWorks (in this step you can use any software for editing video you like)

4. Waiting for new software from GoPro - I still hope it will be released for Windows :)

 

Good luck!

Re: GoPro Max has no editing software for Windows

As mentioned already by myself in other responses, you can also use the Magix video software.

You don't need to purchase the Pro version. And with this software I have been working for years now.

You can edit, create videos from regular 2D, photos, 360 video, reframing 360, and also create tiny planets.

 

Again for those who want to create great videos this is easy and not complicated and run's in Windows PC.

 

And the quality is quit okay since I don't publish in youtube, but create vacation movies etc and watch them on my 65inch TV.
