Thread: Hero 3 video to Sony Vegas 9 for editing

    Default Hero 3 video to Sony Vegas 9 for editing

    Am having trouble finding a free converter for me to end up with GoPro video that I can open in Vegas 9 for editing.
    I know GoPro suggest their software but this entails installing Quicktime which appears to be risky unsupported gear now.

    Hello Minty, Google will find a program called 'any video converter', as it says anything from and to anything else, even to MOV without having QT. Cheers - Jem

    Thanks Jem, will have a look at that. Had given up on "converting" and have downloaded Windows Movie Maker, which recognises GoPro files...marvellous!
    Have tried a dummy run today and the editing is OK but am getting jerky playback at times.???

    Hello Minty,

    I assume your jerky playback is in the preview mode it will go away when you render it.
    If not then I would think the frame rate is too low.

    Before I bought Power Director 14 I used Windows Movie Maker 6: There is also a forum and lots of add ons for the program I thought it was the best of the free offerings.

    Cheers - Jem

    [edit] I could see something about Windows Live Essentials in the questions under the text on Blaines page. I downloaded WMM6 64bit to see if it would load on Win10, I'm pleased to say that it does.

    Can you export GoPro files from WMM in the same format you imported them? (MP4 if I'm not mistaken) - or are you stuck with *ack* *gag* some bogus Windows format (wmv or whatever)

    (edit) I was just being a dick when I suggested that you couldn't export to a proper format from WMM but based on a quick web search I think it is true! You poor bugger!
