Default GoPro editing software

My wife is putting a video together from a Hero 5 in AVI format. When editing the video and sending to the "convert file" nothing is happening. She has been at this for at least 24 hours and keeps loosing pic and videos while doing all this editing and having to start all over from scratch. Any suggestions? I didn't see this is any of the GoPro threads.

I finally gave up on GoPro sw and started using Lightworks. GoPro is pretty slow unless you have some good hardware(mem, processor and video card) and every now and then locks up for what seems "no good reason".

Can you insert pics and video clips into a video with Lightworks?

Not sure of your work flow.


Camera video>download to PC>convert file using Cineform (if needed)>open video editor>choose settings for video footage>open video file in editing software>edit>output to desired format


I have used the Go Pro Cineform Studio - don't anymore. It was wonky.


I like to use Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 but for a small job and quick edit I will use Premier Elements.


Check your settings, video formats before and after conversion.


If your machine is dropping footage and pics make sure the hardware is up to specs to handle the HD footage from the Hero 5 (H.264) and you ample space on your disk. Check to make sure the software your using is compatible with the video format your using. An AVI HD file would be enormous.

Also check the size of your pictures. If they are too big they will bog your machine down and cause other problems.

We are following that work flow. The problem is GoPro Studio SW. It's junk. The pics and video were shot on on a GoPro. We are looking at Lightworks. or any other SW that is easy to use but quality.

Cannot comment on other video editors as the only ones I have used were Adobe.


This is Adobe Premiere Elements 15.

You can get Adobe Premier & Photo Shop Elements as a bundle.


I have it on another machine and it's good software. I have used Premier since version 4.


Good luck and Go Noles!!

The go pro software launches a second exe/dll when editing. If you have your computer set up to ask if a changes are ok - that prompt is normally suppressed by the OS when called as a secondary process. You won't see it - it will not run and the OS will not return an error - it just hangs the process. At least that was my experience with Windows a few months ago. I fixed it by giving full control to the folder that contained the dll/exe - or something along those lines. I searched for a while and that solution/problem wasn't documented. I was running a 64 bit Windows Os when it cropped up.
