VideoProc - An Incredibly Simple and Powerful Tool to Cut GoPro Videos
VideoProc is an easy-to-use, quick-to-learn, and surprisingly powerful video editor, allowing you to cut GoPro videos easily, such as trimming head and/or the tail of your footage, split videos into fragments, and cut out the redundant parts and splice the rest of clips together. Unlike GoPro Quik's trimming available only for GoPro source clips, VideoProc accepts every footage and does more than video trimming, but also a series of video edits like cropping GoPro video frame size, merging several clips into a single one, making a video rotation, turning the volume up/down, correcting video brightness, contrast etc. Besides, the impressive Toolbox is specifically designed to cater to the unique features of GoPro, enabling you to correct GoPro fisheye distortion, remove background/wind noise, stabilize shaky GoPro footage and so on.
VideoProc is fast, too, using the Intel QSV/NVIDIA/AMD hardware acceleration, while taking advantages of multi-core CPU processors, and Hyper-Threading technology. Meanwhile, the unique auto copy mode can cut/trim GoPro videos without video re-encoding at even faster speed. Put it all together, VideoProc achieves up to five times faster than GoPro Quik and similar apps.
[Tutorial] How to Cut GoPro Videos (4K/2.7K/1080p/720p HD) with VideoProc
Firstly, you need free download VideoProc on Windows 10/8/7 or Mac version on Mac OS 10.6 and above. I'm working on my Windows desktop here to clip GoPro footage, yet the GoPro video editing tutorial follows the same steps on macOS.
Step 1: Launch the GoPro video cutter and click "Video" button on the main interface. Drag your desired GoPro videos to the current window or click "Add Video" to import source videos from GoPro.
Step 2: Tap "Cut" button from the edit bar below the video info, and you'll be navigated to a new window. Drag green knob to set the start time and end time of your GoPro clip that you want to keep. After that, click the orange "Cut" button next to slider. Repeat the action to cut other clips of your GoPro video. Then, click "Done" button to make your clip valid, and the multiple short clips will be merged into a single one.
Step 3: Optionally, get access to "Target Format", you're able to transcode your GoPro video to HEVC, H.264, MP4, MOV, AVI, or optimal presets for YouTube, Facebook, Instagram etc. Certainly, if you'd like cut GoPro video without re-encoding, you can skip this step.
Step 4: Hit "RUN" button at the bottom right to export a new GoPro video of shorter length.
