GoPro Studio not Available. Here's an Easy and Free Alternative with More Features

By Kayla Collins | Last Update:

GoPro Studio is a piece of editing software specially created for video footages recorded with GoPro action cameras. It allows users to trim and mix video clips, change the speed of video to get fast or slow motion effect, remove fisheye, add title, music or audio track, adjust white balance, and do more. It is an intuitive tool which can help users edit GoPro videos of professional quality with ease.

With Quik for desktop being updated to version 2.4, however, GoPro Studio is no longer included in the installer package and isn't available to download as a single program from GoPro official website. So, people who have updated to Quik for desktop 2.4 or later can no longer find Gopro Studio and wonder what they can do to edit their GoPro video footages?

"I've been using GoPro Studio to make edits, and really loved it. Very user friendly and intuitive piece of software. However, it has stopped working over the last few days, and I understand that GoPro is no longer supporting it, so there is no option to uninstall and reinstall. What can I do?"

You can download GoPro studios from unofficial sites. However, the security of the install pack from these sites is hard to be guaranteed. Thus, here we are going to introduce an easy-to-use GoPro Studio alternative - VideoProc Vlogger - to help users edit GoPro videos on Mac and Windows as ever.

Edit GoPro Footage

Best GoPro Studio Alternative – VideoProc Vlogger

VideoProc Vlogger is designed for action camera videos, and its developers take into account all the features typical of GoPro videos that require special attention in video editing, such as:

  • Large and lengthy footage: 4K 2.7K videos in hours of length can be edited smoothly and rendered fast in VideoProc Vlogger based on our test of 100 pieces of large GoPro footage.
  • Video stabilization at all resolutions: the de-shake algorithm is efficiently baked into the software, and you can apply video stabilization for GoPro videos at all kinds of resolutions.
  • Highly compressed H265 (HEVC) GoPro video: the codes are suitable for storing video files in a smaller size but not friendly for editing, because computational power is required to decode each frame. VideoProc Vlogger utilizes Level-3 Hardware Acceleration technique to speed up and smoothen the editing experience.
  • Option to Adjust or remove GoPro fisheye effect.

  • Trendy templates: adjustable presets for titles, lower thirds, transitions, video effects, color filters.
  • Custom LUTs and color adjustments: import cinematic LUTs for an aesthetic look in 1-click, adjust white balance, contrast, saturation, luminance, vignette, opacity, etc.
  • Keyframe animation with Motion: add cinematic opening effects, pan and zoom, reframe with Motion Crop to keep the action in the center, via presets and custom adjustments.
  • Cut to the beat: use the audio beat detection tool to add markers and align video clips to the beat of the background music, such as the rhythmic stomp intro style on YouTube.
