Which gopro editing software is better?

I guess this question is aimed for the ones that have used both software..

 

Which App is better?

 

Gopro Studio PC or Gopro Quik??

 

i know the older software is no longer supported but i managed to find it but not installed either of them yet.. so overall which one is better regarding editing, support of file formats and ease of editing and no restrictions for time limit, transitions, music etc

 

I will need to use it at some point to try it out but id rather get advice on which one is better to use

 

As a fallback i have premiere pro to use if needed

 

Thanks all!

Re: Which gopro editing software is better?

Neither for video editing.

You should get one of these free programs
VSDC on Windows- http://www.videosoftdev.com/free-video-editor/download.
DaVinci Resolve https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/davinciresolve
VideoProc https://www.videoproc.com/
HitFilmExpress https://hitfilm.com/express
ShotCut https://shotcut.org/download/
Lightworks http://www.lwks.com/
Avidemux http://avidemux.sourceforge.net/
Blender https://www.blender.org/download/
EZvid http://www.ezvid.com/download
VirtualDub http://www.virtualdub.org/
Fusion https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/fusion/motiongraphics
Lives http://lives-video.com/index.php?do=home

DaVinci Resolve is a professional editor and considered to be one of the best (paid or free).

Video editing is very taxing on a computer system, so you may need to use an editor like VideoProc which conforms to the system it is on to maximize performance. VSDC is good if you are recording in HEVC.

Quik is good for importing media and uploading to the GoPro Plus Cloud Service. but the editor is pretty limited. If you like Quik style videos, you are much better off using the mobile app.

Re: Which gopro editing software is better?

Hi

 

Thankyou so much for your feedback, i just bought a new laptop for video editing so i will give Davinci Resolve and VSDC a download so it will sit along side premiere pro and see which one turns up the best.. i could end up getting along better with one of those apps.. a lot of my videos will be between 5 minutes - 20 minutes so need something reliable

 

So again Danielr15 thankyou for the input
