Transferring GoPro Footage to a Computer

GoPro Studio is a great free app that GoPro offers for people who want to organize their footage from their computer. You need to have a registered GoPro to get this app.  In this course I'll walk through getting footage off of the memory card and mounted onto your computer so you can organize your footage. You will also need an SD card adapter and a USB card reader to get faster transfer speeds. You can also import the footage into Lightroom or Aperture as well, or directly off of your Finder, it all depends what’s best for your workflow.  One of the benefits of using this app is that you can trim parts of clips that you don’ t want before you hit the editorial stage with the clips themselves. Learn this easy and efficient workflow that will get your footage organized in no time and explore some of the elements that GoPro Studio has to offer.
