GoProStudio not importing files from camera

I have the GoPro4 and a MacMini running OS X Yosemite.  The first few times I connected the camera GoPro would pop up automatically and start importing files.  Now when I connect my camera nothing starts up on the computer.  When I open GoProStudio I do not have any settings for autoload.  Under Preferences I just get one form with 3 options 

     Use Time Of Day For Timecode

     Use Reel Name In Destination 

     Auto-start conversions.

 

All the help messages say there should be an auto-import setting under preferences.  

How can I just manually upload the files?

Re: GoProStudio not importing files from camera

Hi @kenk64853

 

The old GoPro Importer that ran through GoPro Studio isn't really supported anymore, as we have moved to the importer within the Quik App. The new importer gives better visibility to the import and then shows your footage in the Quik App's gallery. 

 

You can download Quik HERE if your computer is 64-bit.
