Re: Studio Step 2: can't drag clip into timeline

I'm having what sounds like the same issue too.

 Windows 10 PC
 Only taking video clips from my Hero Session.

I can do step 1 just fine.
 Seems like I can trim, cut, whatever the clips I have ok, then I can convert them just fine  
It then prompts me to go to step 2

 Now, my converted clips show up in a box to the Left Hand side of my screen.
 And from what I know, I'm supposed to just drag clips down the bottom middle of the screen.

 

  well. there's nothing there. Just a black box
  It looks like I can drag stuff to that spot.  But nothing pops.

 

 send help please. I'm hainv to use iMovie, and as I don not have a MAC, only an iPad, you can imagine how much fun that isn't

 

 thanks

Re: Studio Step 2: can't drag clip into timeline

nope, sadly I never did get this issue sorted.
 I haven't really used the Go Pro because of that.

Re: Studio Step 2: can't drag clip into timeline

I have the same problem but the only difference is that the videos are from a gopro session. I import the videos to step 1 but as soon as i go to step 2 it names the video as "(null)" and it doesn't allow me to drag it into the timeline. You guys have any idea what's wrong?

Re: Studio Step 2: can't drag clip into timeline

I have the same issue. It looks very much like a bug in GoPro Studio to me. I can drag audio files or titles, but no video media. 

@GoPro Developers: PLEASE fix it!

Re: Studio Step 2: can't drag clip into timeline

Me too.  I can't drag any of my GP session clips to the place that says drag video here..

 

I'm finding GP SW in general sucks really bad.  Amazing a video camera company like this can't make even a semi usable edit app.  I have ridiculous amounts of trouble with this SW.
