protune edit in Quik

I used to edit my videos in Studio but now as it is no longer available (mine does not display image whilst being edited - cannot reinstall coz it does not exists any longer) what do I do with my flat colours and the rest? I must have missed something as I cannot find a proper answer to this question. GoPro offers Quik for desktop with editing options for kids. So I spend fortune on the camera and accessories, am given free software and after a year or so cannot edit my movies any longer, unless I find myself an alternative from other developers. Just a question to GoPro actually; what do you suggest? you give me the option to set protune and make everything flat so I can edit it later, give software to do it, then take it away for no reason so I'm not able to do it. If I want to edit the videos you allowed me initially with Studio, I have to find myself a different, third party software? If that's the advice, why not to invest in different brand all together?

Re: protune edit in Quik

Hi @fastwave8152,

 

GoPro Studio has been discontinued. You can find out more on that here:

 

https://gopro.com/help/articles/Question_Answer/GoPro-Studio-End-of-Life-FAQ

 

We do suggest iMovie on Mac or VSDC on Windows and both are free options!

Hope that helps.

 

Best,

Ryan

Re: protune edit in Quik

You did not directly answer his question concering ProTune specifically. So, no; unfortunately you did not provide much help.

 

Possibly another employee can shed some light on this issue (or anyone)? I am in the same boat with having used ProTune on a snorkel trip and coming back home to realize the editor no longer works. It is the only app I relied on to correct/adjust the ProTune specific video for water trips.

Furthermore, if you give customers the ProTune option on the camera and then give them the software option to click a button for auto correcting protune and THEN discontinue the program, it is your duty to specifically address this problem. If we are supposed to download some other program, then it should be up to you to explain the protune editing process for that program.

Re: protune edit in Quik

Hey man, I think you're wasting your time. I gave up after the GoPro support team suggested iMovie to me. I don't know which of these two regarding GoPro cameras sucks more : iMovie or GoPro support team. I suppose the later as you can always squeeze something out of iMovie. GoPro camera - great product, support team - my 10 year old gives better advice!

Re: protune edit in Quik

Unless you are using Hero2 or Hero3, Protune enhancements to color, saturation and sharpness are done in camera with the Color profile GoPro and WB Auto. For the Hero2 and Hero3 Protune uses a Flat color profile with higher dynamic range. To color grade this footage, DaVinci Resolve is, and always was, the best editor to use (and it's free).
