How to Edit GoPro Videos with VideoProc Vlogger

VideoProc Vlogger is capable of editing videos from GoPro HERO 10, 9, 8, 7 and older HERO models or other action cameras like Insta 360 One R, DJI OMSO Action, etc.

Step 0 Create a new project

Launch VideoProc Vlogger and complete the general settings to create a new project.

Step 1 Load GoPro videos to VideoProc Vlogger

After creating a new project, you can add any GoPro videos (4K, slow-mo, high speed, etc.), music and photos to Media Library, and then drag them to the timeline.

The following section will show you how to edit 3 different types of GoPro videos – underwater, low-light and fisheye-look.

Color Correct Underwater GoPro Videos

Underwater videos are always blurry and (partly) overexposed. Besides, red light is absorbed more strongly than blue light by water. When shooting a diving video by GoPro and if you don't have a red filter, you'll probably end up with a blue GoPro video like this:

In VideoProc Vlogger, there is a quick workflow to color-correct underwater GoPro videos.

Step 1 Open the Color Editor by clicking Color in the toolbar.

Step 2 Make color correction by tweaking some parameters on the right. Generally, you’ll need to decrease the values of Exposure, Shadows and Whites, and increase Saturation. To achieve an idea result, you may also need to try adjusting Saturation, Highlights, Hue, Luminance and so on based on the problems of your underwater footage.

Fix GoPro Low-light Videos

Step 1 Open Color Editor by clicking Color in the toolbar.

Step 2 Increase the level of Exposure to lighten the video.

Fix Low Light Video

Step 3 You can make other adjustment if necessary, such as increase the Contrast, and apply noise reduction for GoPro low-light videos.

Remove GoPro Lens Distortion

Shooting in GoPro Wide/Superview mode will lead to lens distortion (also fisheye look), which is no good especially when you're trying to mix the video with others that don't have any lens distortion. But, you can make lens correction and if you're using VideoProc Vlogger, you can do it in 10 seconds.

GoPro fisheye footage

Step 1 Enable Lens Correction in Inspector Panel, which is on the top right of the software main UI.

Step 2 Choose a camera model and Camera View and then adjust Transform to fix lens distortion, optionally.
