Here’s a pretty complete review video of Adobe Premiere Elements 13 made by Bai of the The Skills Factory.
We can use smart phones, tablets, protable cameras like Gopro or DSLR to shoot just as many pictures and videos as we want. Microsoft Windows (live) Movie Maker is a free download for Windows Vista Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1.
The easy-to-use home video editing software with special editing features lets you seamlessly stitch together video clips, music & text, apply effects and get a professional-looking home movie in minutes.
In this article I'll share with you how to easily edit GoPro HD videos without having to convert the MP4 clips beforehand using Magix Movie Edit Pro - my favorite GoPro editing program - you get pro results with ease of use. I edit my outdoor videos with Magix coz it's easy to use, has an intuitive interface and works well even on old laptops.
It handles GoPro HD MP4 files, MTS (AVCHD) format, MOV clips and AVI files without needing to convert them - that saves time which you can spend on editing rather than figuring out which software to use to convert your files. You always have to keep in mind that your works starts when you press the record button on your camera. A bird sees the scene from above so fly your camera above the subject or take aerial shots if you can (climb a tree and take some shots from there). Of course, having a head mounted camera adds an urgency to the video and gives a realistic touch of the action being shot. When you can precisely identify the sound spikes, place the scenes slightly before the audio spikes. After you're done editing, it's time to export your video and save it as a video file to your computer. If you run Magix on a powerful computer - if you're a gamer you may have a strong machine - you can export the video to an MP4 file. If your computer is more than 3 years old and has lots of programs installed, you may want to close all other applications when you're editing and exporting videos. Keep the project folder on a hard disk partition where there's enough free space available. If you convert it to MP4 before uploading, YouTube won't compress them that hard as they're already compressed. After you download and install Leawo, click the Add button in the lower left of the window and browse for the AVI file you want to convert.
Choose an output destination folder and click the big green arrow button in the lower right of the window to start converting the video. Tip: This process takes up resources as well so it's better to keep your computer in a cool place if you don't have a cooler. Would you like me to write an in depth post or do a video screen capture with all the editing tricks in Magix Edit Pro Plus? Leave a comment and we'll have a constructive conversation that will lead to better solutions for all us adventure seekers and film makers out there.
GoPro is the camera, but many people who buy it are having trouble importing the files into their video editor. The suggestions for copyright free music are very useful - the few videos I've made so far have been backed by music I ripped from CDs which meant the last one got rejected from facebook.
I use Cyberlink Powerdirector - it works well for me and uploads MP4s, .MOVS for my DSLR and any other format I've tried while exporting directly to AVI, youtube or facebook.
Powerdiriector contains a bucketload of really cheesy gimmicks but does have an indispensible vibration reduction tool - probably not as good as your steadicam bt it works well enough for me.
Usually when Magix meets a new kind of footage it asks you for an automatic online codec download from their servers.
If you use their application, the information travels through a longer loop until it reaches YouTube so there's no point in doing that. I have recently bought myself a GoPro HD and have started shooting some skiing videos and time lapses. However, If I do lots of cuts and add color correction - it only previews smoothly for about 10 seconds than it starts to be choppy.
More RAM and a dedicated video card (with lots of memory of its own if possible) + a laptop cooler would definitely help. Usually it's a mixture of overheating, too many applications running and weak computer altogether. I did some research and it seems I can upgrade the RAM very easily, but unfortunately upgrading from GPU to dedicated graphics card doesn't seem possible.
The new GO PRO Hero2 is awesome and I bought it to do SLO MO on my videos and does this software allow you to slo it down and then speed it up for these killer sequence videos? The slo mo is even smoother with the new 120 fps shooting in R1 mode (available in HD Hero 2). However, if you want super slow motion (like it was shot at 500-700 fps), you need to edit with Adobe Premiere or Sony Vegas or Final Cut Pro (for Mac) and install a plug-in named Twixtor.
This basically creates extra frames and you get that slow motion which looks almost like the image freezes.
Magix is limited to the actual frame rate of your original footage when it comes to slow motion. So if you shoot in 120 fps, I'd say don't go lower than 20 (15 the most) fps when you slow it down. In terms of 'moving' the camera I meant that I shot the footage in R2 and to simulate faster motion I moved the camera faster while recording. Yup this happens a lot (the video being played poorly within the editing software) even with Adobe Premiere and other products. I guess it's because the software has to load a ton of features and playing the video is just another burden. I can only play the files smoothly in Magix if the videos are AVI in low resolutions (lower than 720 p). As I said: I shot lots of videos in R1 which is not HD but then converted with Leawo to 720p and the image didn't pixelate at all. Yup Premiere is ultra proficient but takes a while to learn and needs a powerful computer to run on. I won't have much options for offloading (possibly to a netbook) so space is probably a concern also. So if you get the HD Hero 2 you might as well get a 32 GB SDHC memory card from GoPro - this way you know for sure it performs well.
I'm saying this coz there are cards that are slower - they cannot actually record all the info that's being sent from the camera to them.
So if you don't shoot super fast action, then I'd go with R2 - coz it outputs the "lightest" HD file format. Now, if I were a diver, I'd consider buying one - check out Eye of Mine (they manufacture it). I know Powerdirector handles MP4 files as well but haven't really worked with it so I can't tell if it's better than Magix from a beginner's point of view. As long as you export with the right settings (resolution and aspect ratio) it should't be a problem to work in a project file that has different settings.
Well, it's quite easy if you have a powerful computer with tons of RAM, and enough memory on the graphics card.


Then you can export directly in MP4 with Magix - so the second part of the tutorial becomes irrelevant.
Anyway, one can export in MP4 but the result may a little pixelated if the hardware resources are not enough. I started playing with Vegas but the quality of the final Video was never as good as the original.
What I do is this: Hold down the Ctrl key and press the Up Arrow key until the footage track is zoomed-in enough so you can see each frame as a distinct footage segment (bordered by two vertical lines). I think you would have to play with "distort" effects in your video editor (whatever that may be). Last summer I strapped on 3 GoPro cams and recorded POV for my Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon. The idea is simple: drag files onto your timeline, make the cuts, add the music on a lower track and export your movie.
I built my computer and am running windows and want to know does Magix edit pro plus work well also for the go pro hero 3 black? I'm running MAGIX Edit Pro MX Plus (capable to export MP4 videos with H.264 codec directly), but I'm not being able to achieve the desired results. I've noticed that previous versions (maybe yours as well) would export a grainy result in MP4 - that's why I used to export in AVI (got a sharp result) and then I compressed it to MP4 with Leawo. Get the free trial of the latest version and give it a spin - I like the way it exports MP4 now.
With a succession of budget rivals nipping at its heels, GoPro has announced a new software package and mobile app for its customers that will make movie creation and management easier.
The GoPro App 2.0 allows you to instantly view photos and play back videos on your mobile device via a WiFi connection. In addition to the new app, the company will also be launching the aforementioned GoPro Studio.
We also quizzed Loughery about Kogan’s new action camera range which start at just $119 apiece. While the Ebola outbreak in West Africa has officially ended, isolated cases have appeared in Sierra Leone and Guinea earlier this year, prompting worries that the virus will likely have a constant presence in the region. It's been eight months since New Horizons made its historic flyby of Pluto, but data keeps on trickling in from the intrepid space probe. Items ship out the same day or next business day and arrive in 2-3 business days after that. The Canon Power Shot D30 waterproof camera is the ideal choice for intrepid types who often find themselves outdoors, underwater or in extreme situations. Now you can capture beautiful underwater stills and video without the need for a waterproof case. The Canon HS SYSTEM on the PowerShot D30 lets you take bright, clear photos in an even wider range of shooting situations. Record the fun and excitement of your outdoor adventures in crisp, clear high definition video on the PowerShot D30. The PowerShot D30 digital camera is equipped with Global Positioning System (GPS)* technology. Sophisticated Canon technology that makes getting that great shot as simple as pressing the shutter button, Smart AUTO automatically detects scenes by assessing various factors in both the background and the subject.
The camera automatically selects the best shooting settings for optimal quality based on subjects and environmental factors to provide point-and-shoot simplicity. Automatically selects shooting settings for optimal quality and records a video clip every time you capture a still image. Give images a miniature look with an effect that emphasizes perspective by blurring the top and bottom of the image. Simulates photos taken with "toy" or pinhole cameras, darkening the image at the edges to create a vignette effect. Poster Effect combines several similar shades into one color, turning subtle gradations into eye-catching, scene-popping contrasts.
Easy-to-use guidelines simplify the shooting of aligned multiple frames that can later be combined (using bundled software) to create panoramic photos. The innovative Canon Optical Image Stabilization technology, Intelligent IS, analyzes camera movement and applies the best shake correction method for the shooting situation. Effective for video shooting at wide-angle focal lengths, eliminating the unwanted shaking that typically occurs while walking. Compensates for hand movement when shooting video at the telephoto end of the zoom range, where camera shake is magnified. Before you buy your top original software, watch some tutorials so you know it's right for you.
In YouTube you can make those areas clickable so you can promote your other videos as well.
With Magix, you simply adjust the playback speed factor and you either slow down or speed up your videos - it's very easy to do. If you want, you can make the whole image black and white and keep just one color in normal saturation. Helpful if you sell stuff online through your own shop or on other platforms like Ebay or Amazon.
Synch the footage across all cameras and edit like a live broadcaster - you have a main monitor and the source cameras, then you edit by simply clicking on the cam that has the right angle at the right time.
But then you end up with a large file - that's why you should compress it with Leawo before uploading it to YouTube.
A basic fade and some dissolves here and there will do but stick to simple cuts for the most part. This article titled Seven Best Windows 8.1 Video Editing Software could be the answer you have been looking for. The cheapest Windows 8.1 video editing software is the Gopro Video editor, however, it seems to be the top on the list. In addition to this, you can insert text, add effects such as time lapse and adjust the volume of all your audio clips. With all the features and tools this software offers, it’s a little more complicated to use.
I've been using it since 2010 and I still use it for all my video editing projects in 2016. If  you shoot thinking about how you're gonna edit then you'll be taking quite a lot of work load off the editing process. All these add to the artistry of the video - plus, viewers are used to watch this kind of steady footage from TV shows, music videos and movies. Also, the dolly zoom (vertigo effect) is another cool trick you can do to add drama to your clips. He has an interesting collection of audio tracks that are available for download and free to use for your videos as long as you give him credit. Most of them are cool people who will accept you taking their tracks for your YouTube videos. This grants high quality and low file size so it'll be faster for you to upload the video online.
Use the same folder where the rest of the media files are stored (original footage and audio files). So when you want to ad a time lapse scene in the clip, simply import your previously processed scene and trim it accordingly. All video editors create temporary files that enables them to do their work properly - don't sacrifice that. If your video editor doesn't export in MP4, which is perfect for internet upload, then use a video converter. What I mean is you may have a sharp looking video on your hard drive but notice it gets pixelated after you upload it to YouTube. I used to take it out in the balcony (in the shade) or in the bathroom (down on the tiles) to avoid overheating - this was before I got my laptop cooler. Compress your video with Leawo in MP4 or export your video in MP4 with Magix if you have a good computer. It looks as though you are using a single core (SLOW) processor which is kind of weak itself (1.6ghz). I have yet to purchase my gopro, but I'm a diver and heading to Belize and Roatan this year and getting ready for some good video. I've seen some suggest r3 for underwater (wider angle) but my overall video will be a compilation of above water, below water etc. LOL My friend will be on this trip and I want to get some good video and won't have time on trip to test what I've got. So for super slow mo use R1 (even if the resolution is not HD) and for the rest use either R2 or R3.
The action and the style of shooting and editing is much more important than actually having 1080p footage. When that's the case, the camera either stops or your clips will be recorded with breaks and jumps. And if super slo mo is not your thing but you still wanna slow down the footage a little without making it choppy, then shoot in R3, for the same reason - it's the "lightest" HD format at a higher fps. I only shoot occasionally under water so I don't care that much about the extra sharpness I could get with this flat lens housing.
I'm just about to get stuck into learning how to edit videos so I can produce travel videos in the near future. Then when I export I am being asked about resolution and other settings and that's the part that matters. Work with whatever presets it has and then export using your desired resolution and aspect ratio. Im having a huge problem with my HD Hero 2 videos, I just started a bodybuilding vlog and shoot all my vids with this camera, i edit them on Premiere CS5.5, they export in perfect 1080 HD, I match all the settings with the way I shot the video, but when I upload to youtube they look horrible.
So after you upload it, YouTube does an extreme compression in order to play it online - that's when they screw up the quality of your vid.


Even after you graduate from "beginner status", you'll still enjoy it for editing your GoPro clips and more.
They say it's good for beginners but I can't tell you how good it is - I haven't bought it. I guess you need to fine tune the settings of the project file and then the export settings (resolution, fps, bit-rate and such).
I used 3 GoPros to film my Escape from Alcatrtaz Triathlon and realized that I ended up with 8hours of videos and needed to quickly cut it up before edit.
What settings would you recomend in order to export MP4 720p HD H.264 videos for youtube (directly from MAGIX)??
The GoPro 2.0 App and GoPro Studio beta will be released on Wednesday and in the next two weeks, respectively. Loughery ran us through the updated mobile app’s new features as well as a new editing software package dubbed GoPro Studio. You can then download specific pics or clips and share them via email, SMS, Facebook and other social networking services. The Kogan Full HD Action Camera Silver Edition has “near identical” specifications to GoPro Cameras, including 1080p video recording, a 12-megapixel sensor and a 170 degree field of view. Loughery indicated that the quality of components can make a significant difference to video quality, even when the spec sheets are similar.
Scientists have now produced a new composite map, creating the sharpest and most detailed look at the dwarf planet yet.
Currently the camera with the world's deepest waterproof performance, the Power Shot D30 dives to a full 82 feet for excellent scuba and snorkeling flexibility.
The tough and sporty PowerShot D30 is the ideal choice for intrepid types who often find themselves outdoors, underwater or in extreme situations.
Therefore, be sure to use GPS in accordance with the laws and regulations of your country or region.
That means that if you're a certified Open Water scuba diver, you can comfortably explore the certification's entire 59-foot range. Whether you're skiing, cycling, climbing, hiking, even performing high movement activities in extreme temperatures, this camera can handle it.
The result of combining the camera's 12.1 Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor and the DIGIC 4 Image Processor, the Canon HS SYSTEM makes possible beautiful low-light shots with minimal noise and maximum detail in highlight and shadow areas. You can travel the world and let the camera automatically record the locations and local times of your stills and videos.
The camera has been equipped with a new Sunlight LCD mode that reduces glare, making the LCD monitor easy to see even in bright light. On the PowerShot D30, detected scenes are analyzed using 32 predefined shooting situations. For stills, the system automatically selects among Normal, Panning, Macro (Hybrid) and Tripod modes. I just like Magix coz it lets me import most formats (MP4, MKV, MOV, MTS - AVCHD, M2TS, VOB, etc.), it's easy to use and delivers professional results. Then you combine all those photos and create a video that looks as when you fast forward a film. It makes your video Hollywood style and it also allows you to get a better frame composition for each shot. Capture the sound on an external voice recorder and sync it with your video in post production. It doesn’t provide as many transitions, picture-in-picture objects or audio tracks as some of the other applications we reviewed. Bottom line: This video editing software allows you to add many video and audio clips if you want. If you place the scenes exactly on the beats, you'll notice a delay between video and audio in the final video.
This happens because YouTube does an extra compression of the initial file you upload, thus screwing the quality.
Of course, what you get is not a real HD video since the original footage was shot in 480 p but still you can maintain a sharp image even when you increase the actual resolution of the clip. Im just sceptical that the upgrade from 2GB to 4GB will give me what I need to run the playbacks smoothly. The first time I took out quite a "blanket" of dust that was basically smothering my computer, thus overheating the system. The footage was smooth as long as I was shooting smoothly, but as soon as I moved the camera faster I then had jumpy playback in Magix.
This workflow seems perfect and I like the preview I watch for MAGIX software on their site (like adding slow motion, etc.) I've used Premiere previously and it seems like a resource hog.
But you're saying to shoot in that, but then use Leawo to save (avi to mp4) as HD for iPad that will give it the 720 HD widescreen resolution for Youtube? Slow-mo isn't the highest priority, I'd just like to be able to slow down a few scenes just for effect. No matter what i have tried using corel or gopro sw, I can not even come close to the quality end result that is posted everywhere. Handily, the downloaded files will automatically appear in your phone’s default gallery folder. A selection of templates are also included to make things easier if you just want to smash out a quick highlights reel. Bikers, hikers, skiers and climbers can also confidently pack the Power Shot D30 to document the day's action. The images and video you capture underwater will exhibit all the Canon quality you expect, with high resolution and vivid, natural color. The 12.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor in the PowerShot D30 incorporates advanced light reception technology that enhances sensitivity while the DIGIC 4 Image Processor actively reduces noise, expanding the usable ISO range to an amazing high of 3200. Full HD video on the PowerShot D30 means everything from amazing mountain heights to beautiful underwater depths will be preserved with spectacular realism and detail, perfect for watching on an HDTV or sharing with family and friends.
This enhanced visibility not only makes framing and shooting easier, but also makes it easy to review what you've captured and show it to others. The camera then makes optimal settings to ensure the best possible image capture, whether you're shooting stills or video. When shooting video, the system automatically selects among Dynamic, Powered, Macro and Tripod modes. We hope you can share this article with more friends and if you have another BEST program to add in this list, please make a comment in below. We mainly made judgement by focusing on file-format support, customer service support, price and its editing performace. It magically cut, splice portions of videos whereever you want to, add music, text, transitions, upload to Youtube or Viemo, or trasnfer video photo to DVD disc playable on DVD player connected to TV.
So what I'm saying is this: if you're running Magix on a slow computer, export your GoPro HD video to AVI. I might also add that all of my GoPro HD mp4 files run smoothly in Quick Time and Windows Media Player, just not in Magix! Even when you choose 1080 setting on youtube mine does not look anywhere near like the way i filmed it.
The camera is shockproof to 6.5 feet, and temperature resistant all the way from 14 Degree to 104 Degree.
As a signal is received from GPS satellites, take sufficient measures when using in locations where the use of electronics is regulated. And with the Movie Digest mode, you can record more of your dive without interrupting your enjoyment of it.
The Canon HS SYSTEM takes the frustration out of low-light shooting, delivering clear, blur-free images. In addition to being able to shoot Full HD 1080p video at 24* frames per second, the PowerShot D30 can also shoot 720p HD video at 30** frames per second. You can maximize the usefulness of the GPS feature by using the special bundled Map Utility software that makes it fun to share the memories of your world adventures. Smart AUTO also includes Advanced Subject Detection, which allows the camera to detect and track non-human moving subjects like animals and vehicles. With Intelligent IS, you can concentrate on image capture, letting the camera make the most effective IS settings to help capture the steadiest possible image. Earlier versions of Magix had issues like that but the latest versions (17 or more) handles this better - now you can actually place the scenes right on the beats and the rendering will be correct. This doesn't happen with all file types but I've seen it happen with my GoPro clips that were uploaded as AVI. I waited, and when it was FINALLY dont uploading, it said there was an error and couldn't upload. The editor does not have this preset so trying to figure out what would be the best resolution to use in this case.
The built-in GPS tracker records the location and time of all the images and videos you capture, and the new Sunlight LCD mode makes it easy to see the monitor even on bright, sunny days. The mode captures a still image plus up to 4 seconds of video prior to pressing the shutter, all without using the REC button. In addition to displaying all your photos' locations on a world map, the camera's GPS system can also track your route from photo to photo – a great way to visualize each trip!
And I might add my work will be done on a lap top (I dont even know how to find the strength of it).
Whether you're underwater or on dry land, images are beautifully clear, steady and loaded with detail and natural color thanks to the Canon HS system and Intelligent IS. You can also create and share custom maps and personal mini-travel guides with friends and family members.
