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.
Movie-making has never been so popular, thanks in no small part to the proliferation of new devices capable of recording video, from smartphones to HDHigh Definition.


If you already have a camcorder gathering dust somewhere, you may want to press it back into service. Alternatively, you can connect your camera to your computer using its USBUniversal Serial Bus. To capture video from analogue VHS or camcorder footage, you’ll need to get a video capture device that supports analogue TV or video. Windows Live Movie Maker is fine for most people’s needs, but if you want to take things further then consider a tool like Cyberlink PowerDirector 10 Deluxe (PC World). Cyberlink PowerDirector 10 provides you with a wide range of editing tools and effects, suited to the serious videomaker. Windows Live Movie Maker includes options for publishing a movie using each of these methods. Windows Live Movie Maker enables you to publish your movie directly to YouTube when you’ve finished editing it. While every effort has been made in the preparation of this website, the publishers cannot be held responsible for the accuracy of the information contained herein or any consequences arising from it.
When your video is set, tap the arrow button in the upper-right corner to head to the Upload screen. Right now, if you want to share GoPro videos (or any video sitting on a memory card, and not your phone), then it usually involves a PC and some effort -- or at least some time exporting and uploading it. During the demo I received at CES, we were able to, navigate, find and share a clip in less than a minute. The box itself is about six-inches square, by an inch-or-so high -- comparable to an Apple TV. The team behind the product has worked on products such as ReplayTV and Roku, and it's hoping that Sugarlock will enjoy similar success. Originally from Bristol, UK, and currently based in Spain, James began writing for music magazines in the '90s.
Video Editor for Mac, the most effective video editor for Mac, offer you powerful and useful editing functions, for example trimming, cropping, merging, watermarking video, etc. Their cinematic capabilities are simply overshadowed by misconception and an obsession with selfies and filtered snapshots. 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)?? Offers substantially better quality pictures than those displayed in the older Standard Definition format found in analogue and early digital TVs. Analogue camcorders record onto tape, which needs to be converted to digital format before you can edit it.
A common interface that lets you connect all kinds of hardware devices to your computer, including external hard drives, printers and mice.
With a tape-based digital camcorder you may need to import the video using your chosen video-editing software.
The PCTV Hybrid Pro Stick (PC World) is ideal, and includes a Freeview tuner as well, so you can use it to watch and record TV.
PowerDirector provides 3D video editing, plus the ability to crop and zoom in on footage, as well as an array of over 300 effects and transitions. The beauty of digital video is that you can quickly and easily give it to friends on DVDAn optical disc used for storing data, music or video. How you share your movie will depend on its length, what facilities your friends have to watch it and the quality you want the finished footage to have. Opinions expressed on the forum or via any related social media are those of the individual in question and do not represent DSG Retail Limited. Here, you can select one of six filters.Lastly, tap the music icon in the lower-right corner to add background music to your video.
Sugarlock describes itself as an "action cam dock," but it's perhaps better (if less sexily) described as a dedicated video editing box you plug into your TV.


The user interface on the TV is clean and simple, and you navigate using your phone as a remote (via an app). The process is simple: choose one, find the bit you want to share, mark your in and out edit points with a swipe gesture, and you're done. The napkin statistic is that only a single digit percent of people edit and publish their footage. After a few failed attempts at a DJ career, he'd carve out a living reviewing DJ and music production gear. Then you can share the videos with your family and friends, or upload your videos to the network. You can press the button on the toolbar and record videos and audios with a video capture device. As you can see, there are four ways to output your videos: Device, Format, YouTube and DVD. Here a few tips for editing a slick, professional-looking video from the comfort of your phone, using the surprisingly feature-packed iMovie app. 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. Most smartphones include adequate video cameras for occasional use, and many digital cameras include the option to record video. This is the most popular type of memory card and is used in everything from digital cameras to camcorders. Older digital camcorders use digital tape, which works in a similar way to analogue tape, but the video they produce is already in digital format so doesn’t need converting. For example, in Windows Live Movie Maker, choose the File tab to the left of Home on the ribbon, then select Import From Device, connect your camera and follow the prompts.
You’ll need to connect your old video recorder or camcorder to its analogue input, and record the video in real time in order to transfer it to your PC.
A clip sent by email needs to be short and snappy with a small file size, or else the person receiving it will have to wait ages for it to download. External websites and downloads are accessed at the user’s own risk, and DSG Retail Limited accepts no responsibility for any issues that may arise as a result. Tap the Add Music button and you can select from preselected and cleared songs from the Featured or Genre & Mood tabs. The aim of which is to help you sift through your footage easily, find the best parts, and export them as sharable clips, without any of the baggage of most editing software. Video previews play when you select a clip, and a simple tap will bring that video up full screen for playback. Choose the share option, and your clip is sent to Facebook (and at release, a host of other social platforms). The specification of which we don't know, but it's capable of handling 4K footage, which is probably all most people need to know. We've all been on vacation and optimistically taken an action camera to record our exploits. Something even GoPro is trying to change, tempting users with cold hard cash, and offering more and more tools to lower the amount of friction between your camera and YouTube or Instagram.
The hardware I saw was well made and polished (the product is launching on Indiegogo in February, but the hardware is done, it's more a matter of getting their message out). The Indiegogo earlybird deal will be $239, and it'll jump to $299 when it finds its way onto regular retail channels.
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. But if you’re keen to produce video on a regular basis, it may be best to invest in a camcorder. SD cards are close cousins of microSD cards, which are tiny versions designed to be used in small devices such as mobile phones. The program then takes control of your camcorder and rewinds the tape, then spools it forward, importing faster than the normal playback speed of the video. For a complete step-by-step guide and accompanying video slideshow to using Windows Live Movie Maker, click here. For longer movies you may be better off uploading to YouTube and sending the link in an email. Alternatively, you can tap On Device and select a track stored locally on your iPhone, but be warned: the app may tell you the song you picked is copy-protected and can't be used. The product I got to see was the final hardware, but the software was missing some of the features that will be available when it launches.
It connects to your TV over HDMI, and you feed it your media either by SD card, or USB drive.
There are even products like Gnarbox that don't even want you to wait until you get home, and let you edit and share on the move.
The software side -- both the remote app, and the main interface -- look very easy to use, but perhaps a little light on features.
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.
If you don’t want to skimp on quality at all, the best option is to use Windows DVDAn optical disc used for storing data, music or video.
The retail version will also auto archive your media, but that's not a feature I got to see in my demo.
What happens when we return, though, is that the diligent among us archive that footage, and make some use of it. All of the editing could be real-time previewed so as to ensure everything you do adds highlight to your videos. And I might add my work will be done on a lap top (I dont even know how to find the strength of it). The rest of us likely stuff it all in a folder on our hard drive, maybe watching some unedited clips, or worse (and this is me) -- don't get around to transferring it to our PC for weeks, if at all (or until when your memory card fills up).
