Once you've finished shooting, your GoPro's job may be done, but your footage usually needs some extra polish. This course shows you how to get footage off your GoPro camera, edit it quickly, and share your movies with the world with GoPro Studio, the free utility that makes GoPro edits easy. Tune in and learn how to trim away unwanted clips, transcode footage to an edit-friendly format, remove distortion, and enhance color and contrast. When you're done, you can export movies and still images for sharing, or hand off the results to another professional or consumer-grade video editing application.
If you're an iMovie Editor, the good news is, is that the ciniform codex is also compatible with iMovie. And any files you optimize inside of goPro Studio, will work. Remember, in goPro studio, as you're working with footage, you can always select a clip, right click and choose to reveal it in finder. And this will show you where the material was stored. And of course if you're paying attention to which directory you're targeted, this is also a great way to know where your files end it up. When you launch iMovie, it's pretty simple.
One of the first choices you have is to import. Now your iMovie library automatically creates a new event based on the date. But you can select that and give it a more descriptive name, if you'd like to organize this in a different way. Once the event is selected, simply choose import. This will bring up the import dialog, and you could target a drive as a source file. So I'll go to my edit drive. Open up the common media folder and go into my scrash disk settings. There's my process files and you'll see that each clip is available.
Remember, you can click and preview those clips to see what they look like and they'll play back. When you find the clips you want, simply select them. You can hold down the Cmd key on a Mac to select more than one image or press Cmd+A to select everything. Notice at the top, it tells you where it's going. Or you can create a new event. In this case, I have everything selected so I'll choose Import All. And you see that the files are added to my iMovie project.
And there they all are, in the project. You can see the item, play it back, and of course, the active metadata comes across as well, providing any of the colorization or style effects. As well as some of the transformations that you can do to adjust the appearance of the clip. At this point simply begin to edit using iMovie in the way that you prefer. You might notice that iMovie indicates that activity is occurring. In this case, the footage may become processed in order to be optimized for iMovie.
iMovie doesn't have the exact same flexibility of the media that you might see. And so it sometimes re-processes the clips, into a format that's more optimized for iMovie. But the Cineform codec will hold up and work with iMovie, and you will get good results
