Snip your clips
A powerful tool that lets you cut, enhance, and combine videos into pieces of art. Mastering it will be a stepping stone to other, more advanced programs.
Features and functions
Start making videos from the basics with GoPro Studio, a simple and compact editing software program.
Unlike other apps, whose UI often cluttered with options, this one has a simple design. You can find everything you’re looking for with ease. It comes with helpful tutorials that guide you through all the steps of the process.
You won’t need a GoPro camera to import your projects...though it would upload much faster if your videos came from the same brand. Other types of files need conversion. This process may take a while depending on the length of the clip. Don’t worry about losing your original version; the app will make a copy of it in the appropriate format. You’ll do all the editing on that separate file.
This app caters to beginners and casual video makers. If you’re an expert, you may not find it appealing. The filters offer minimal adjustments besides some basic tints and shades. Effects, such as slow motion and rewind, work fine for new learners but can feel rigid to professionals.
GoPro Studio comes with many preset templates that you can add to your videos. This will help your creative process when you can’t decide what to do. The app provides tutorials on how to create the same effects for each one. Watch for copyrighted soundtracks contained in these templates.
Where can you run this program?
You can run this program on Mac and Mac OS X
Is there a better alternative?
Yes. In terms of simplicity and costs, you'll want to try iMovie or Openshot. These programs have pretty much all the same tools and are easy to use.
For those who only want a quick edit or retouch on their short video clips, GoPro Studio can satisfy that. Anything more advanced and you’ll need a different app
