GoPro Studio software notavailable anymore?

Hi,

 

It's been a year or more since I used my gopro but I just took a lot of footage on a skiing trip. I just went to download the software and i can only find Quik. Pardon me,but Quik is a bit dumb.  I looked for the Studio software but couldn't find it.  Can someone tell me if Quik is now the only option I have to edit my footage, other than 3rd party software...?

 

Thanks!

Re: GoPro Studio software notavailable anymore?

GoPro no longer supports Studio -- you can't even download it from their site anymore. I know a lot of people are unhappy about it, but that doesn't seem to be making a difference. I still have a version of Studio I downloaded last year and it still works, but I don't know for how long. Supposedly they are going to build out the Quik application, but so far it doesn't seem like much is happening. The GoPro representatives on these forums seem to suggest third party applications, like iMovie, etc.

GoPro Studio has reached End-of-Life and is not included with Quik for Desktop from version 2.4 onwards.

 

The last version of Quik for Desktop that included GoPro Studio was version 2.3.

 

The last version of GoPro Studio on its own was version 2.5.9.2658.

 

All I can say is - Google is your friend. Or you could try a site called filehorse and search for the term "GoPro".

 

However, if you don't want to go down that route you could always try the following (as described here: https://gopro.com/help/articles/Question_Answer/GoPro-Studio-End-of-Life-FAQ)

 

I’m a new user who was told to download Quik for desktop because it comes with GoPro Studio. Is there any way that I could be given an older version of GoPro Studio as well to use with Quik for desktop 2.4?

Re: GoPro Studio software notavailable anymore?

I have a similar problem.  All I want to do is make simple video edits, NO MUSIC or anything else.

 

Quick is hokey.

 

There are YouTube videos about GoPro studio, seemed pretty easy but it's not around anymore?

 

If 3rd party programs are recommended, which one?

 

I am a beginner, sorry for the dumb question, but so far, GoPro is so NOT user-friendly that's how I feel - dumb.

Re: GoPro Studio software notavailable anymore?

Are you on a Mac or a PC? If you are on a Mac I would give iMovie a try. You can find tons of tutorials on YouTube to get you started (for example, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gqNXhDEFgEk).

 

I'm less familiar with free PC editing tools, although I have used Windows Movie Maker. It's pretty basic, but it will at least let you trim clips, join them together, and adjust the look of your footage.

 

One nice thing about this is that they don't alter your original footage. They apply the changes you make in the software and then you can edit the resulting movie to upload to YouTube, etc., and they leave the original as-is. That makes it easy to try out edits, and if you don't like them, you can just scrap the project and start over.

Please read my post just above yours. It answers your question about GoPro Studio (you can still get it ...I've said how to do so).

WORKED

 

the filehors_ site looked m@lacious but i tried it anyway.

 

the key is to NOT do the software update, because it will remove the Studio and replace it with Quik.

 

the studio works exactly like i want, it selects sections of videos and then you can re-arrange and make a single file.  I'll play around with effects and music at a later time.

 

much obliged
