Once you have your footage for sports events ready, the next task is to see that it is editing properly. While doing that is not a bad idea, the whole method accompanying it is challenging.
For novices getting removing the shaky footage or adding the background music could be a nightmare. Fortunately, there are multiple software that helps you edit your GoPro footage.
However, once again, you are confused about which software to choose. It is evident since there is no shortage of options available to you.
To make the right decision, you have to analyze each software in a couple of aspects, and that is where we come to help. Mention below are some of the best GoPro editing software that are particularly adept in their job.
All of the software has been scrutinized and their features duly reported. You could also go through their pros and cons to figure out which suits your needs the most.
Some of these software also provide some additional benefits that the rest may be lacking. We have also analyzed the cost-effectiveness of each software.
If the budget is a constraint, you could choose the software that fits it completely. Go through each of the entries, and hopefully, your decision would now be simplified.
1. GoPro Studio
GoPro Studio software is one of the main products that are provided by the GoPro. This software has made all the things easy to do whether it is importing the GoPro media, Play back videos, viewing videos/photos or creating professional quality videos.
Gopro Studio has made the video editing much easy that even beginners can edit the GoPro videos effectively.
The best part is that it works perfectly on Mac and Window platform and GoPro users can access it for free. GoPro Studio also provides perfect synchronization between audio and video content.
GoPro Studio is a multimedia app made to edit GoPro videos with simple features. By using this software, you can add or remove music, trim unwanted sections, create fast or slow motions, add graphics and text, and much more. Unlike other complicated programs, GoPro Studio is quite simple to operate.
2. Windows Movie Maker for Windows
Windows Live Movie Maker is designed for the budding videographer. Your very own movie studio at the tip of your fingers.
Quickly import your footage from your computer or camera directly into Movie Maker and then easily edit, fine tune and personalize your movie just the way you want with professional editing options or pick from a customised theme.
Windows’ included video editing software is all about simplicity: There’s really no simpler way to combine your clips into digital movies with titles, transitions, background music, and effects.
In earlier releases, the program was so simple that it wasn’t capable of doing things people commonly needed, but little by little, stuff like voiceover recording and even anti-shake have made their way into what is now a very useful free app for digital video editing.
3. iMovie for GoPro Video on Mac
With iMovie for iOS and macOS, you can enjoy your videos like never before. It’s easy to browse your clips and create Hollywood-style trailers and stunning 4K-resolution movies. You can even start editing on iPhone or iPad, then finish on your Mac.
Whether you’re using a Mac or an iOS device, it’s never been easier to make it in the movies. Just choose your clips, then add titles, music, and effects. iMovie even supports 4K video for stunning cinema-quality films. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is a wrap.
iMovie is used by me personally as a quick, intuitive way to piece together movie projects when other editing software is not available.
It has the essential tools you’ll need to produce polished video on the fly. They’ve compressed an impressive amount of features into a small app.
The biggest problem it addresses is the need to produce video in-the-field without access to your laptop.
WeVideo is a powerful, easy to use, cloud-based collaborative video creation platform. With 30 million accounts created to date, WeVideo is the first choice of businesses, consumers, educators and students, as well as being the video backbone for many third-party media solutions.
WeVideo can be accessed from any computer or device: at school, home, work or on the go. Users can easily capture, edit, view and share videos with secure storage of their content in the cloud.
Pros: WeVideo is a great web based video editor! It can scale itself to welcome all ages and ability levels through its “Storyboard” mode and it’s “Timeline” mode. Storyboard is simpler, which is great with students, and Timeline is for more advanced works that let users create different tracks of media.
With this tool, you can easily customize your videos while embedding text or titles into it. The music library is also a handy addition that allows users to edit their most loved audio content to video clips.
Aiming for a wider userbase than most video editors, Wondershare Filmora9 is easy enough for beginners to use (if they don’t mind a bit of a learning curve), but powerful enough to keep more demanding users happy.
The ‘suitable for all levels of ability’ label is bandied around quite a lot, but it’s entirely appropriate here.
6. Magix Movie Edit Pro
Movie Edit Pro makes basic editing easy, with a responsive user interface and controls that are mostly readable.
It has all the standard features, such as video and audio tracks, a library for media features and a button for cutting up your clips before rearranging them and deleting what you don’t need.
Movie Edit Pro also includes a selection of transitions, which you can easily drag between scenes.
The different transitions have large icons that indicate how they look, doing a better job than Hitfilm while being less distracting than VideoStudio’s animated equivalents (read our Corel VideoStudio Ultimate review for more on that).
7. Adobe Premier Pro
Premiere Pro is the industry-leading video editing software for film, TV, and the web. Creative tools, integration with other apps and services, and the power of Adobe Sensei help you craft footage into polished films and videos. With Premiere Rush you can create and edit new projects from any device.
Adobe Premiere Pro deserves its place as the industry standard video editing software, thanks to its familiar nonlinear editing interface, unmatched ecosystem of tools, and powerful set of capabilities.
Since my last look at the massive application, it has added support for 360 VR content, 4K (and higher) and HDR video..
8. Catalyst Production Suite
Catalyst Production Suite fuses powerful media preparation and fast, focused video editing to provide the backbone for your video productions.
Catalyst Prepare paves your path from camera to post with robust organizational tools, precise first-pass color correction and monitoring, extensive metadata support, and more. Catalyst Edit provides a lean, focused video editing environment that makes your cutting process fast and fluent.
If you are wondering what happened to Sony’s Catalyst Browse, it is still available, but it is no longer part of the Suite.
Browse was limited to only working with Sony file formats, and Sony has decided to open up its software, allowing you to work with a wide variety of formats, not just Sony’s
