“In GoPro studio Advanced settings can only set file format to AVI. The MOV option is greyed out. Any idea why this might be? It has always worked before. I am trying to convert 1280 x 720 100fps GoPro mp4 to 25fps MOV.”

“I edited a short film for an informal corporate training video using GP Studio. I’ve got to re-do the edit to change some titles. I did not save a GGS file when I completed the first edit and I’m not sure if the AVI files I still have are the original ones directly from my GoPro3+ because Studio app doesn’t appear to recognize them when I “import new files”. I tried to import those AVI files into Studio to re-edit my film. It doesn’t recognize them as a valid format. I don’t get an error message, but nothing happens when I browse to the files or even try to drag/drop.”
