Invalid Project File

My project file got corrupted in GoPro studio on Macbook saying Invalid Project File.

 

This has happened twice and I lost lots of work.

 

The other thread said this problem was resolved, it is not. Please help

Re: Invalid Project File

I just had the same issue. I called up to GoPro and they said they have never heard of this. After doing my own research this has been a problem for over three years and they haven't fixed it from what I have seen. They claim to be sending my issue off to another person to see if they can help. It makes no sense because the file is still there and is still the same size. It seems more like it is an issue they just don't feel like fixing. I feel your pain, I spent 12 hours straight working on my project and then it crashed. I will let you know if they get back to me with a fix.

Re: Invalid Project File

There is no fix. So GoPro is a 16 but software. Any video over 5 minutes is tough to make. You can shut off the auto save. This helps a little. The issue is when it auto saves and you click save it will lose everything. I actually switched to Adobe premiere pro. It's expensive but is awesome. GoPro's software sucks. There customer service sucks. They also will deny this is an issue and has no idea this is going on. Even though people have been having this issue since 2014.

Re: Invalid Project File

There is no way to recover anything you did as well.
