After you shoot your scenes, it’s time to put them together. Although you can use your favorite nonlinear editing software, having GoPro Studio Edit — a program designed specifically for GoPro moviemaking— is quite a bonus.

Here are a few tips:

  • Download GoPro Studio Edit for free. Go to GoPro to download your free copy.

  • Understand the software. GoPro Studio Edit is easy and intuitive, but still it’s a good idea to understand the basics, so you can import, convert, edit, add effects without missing a beat.

  • Save often. As the old saying goes, anything that can possibly go wrong will go wrong, and when it comes to computers, that usually means you’ll lose your project to a computer crash. That’s why you should save often. Save often, and all will be well.

  • Have fun with the templates. Templates provide the quickest way to make your own GoPro-style movie, complete with music and effects.
