GoPro Studio Time-Lapse Editing Tutorial | Colour Fades



How to add a colour fade effect to your GoPro time-lapses in GoPro Studio.

Here is a GoPro time-lapse editing tutorial video where I show you step by step how to add colour fades and colour shifts to time-lapses in GoPro Studio using key frames. This technique will work for time lapses captured in video mode or photo mode.

Step 1: Launch GoPro Studio and load you time-lapse sequence. This can be a time-lapse that is already in video format or a series of time-lapse images. Just like any other editing you do in GoPro Studio, we now need to convert the media. Add your time-lapse to conversion list, convert the file and the move to “Step 2 Edit” by using the tab at the top of GoPro Studio. Select the option to open up a blank template. TIP: I recommend using the highest quality when converting. It allows for more cropping option later if needed.

Step 2: Drag your new converted time-lapse clip to the editing time line. We will be working with the image control tab on the right hand side of the page, so have it open and ready.

Step 3: With your scrub bar on the first frame of your time-lapse, press the + sign in image controls. This will add a new key frame at the beginning of our time-lapse. Now move the scrub bar to the last frame of the time-lapse and repeat the step of adding a key frame. At this point we now have two key frames in our time-lapse. One at the very beginning and one at the end. We will be using these key frames to add our effect of fading from colour to black and white.

Step 4: Now at this point you have to decide what kind of effect you want to add, You can use any of the control sliders in the “Image Controls” pane to shift the colour to your liking. For this tutorial we are going to fade the time-lapse from full colour to black and white. To achieve this we are going to leave the first key frame alone. Move your scrub bar to the last key frame. Once Selected, drag the saturation slider all the way to the left or enter a value of 0. You will now see your time-lapse has change to black and white on the last key frame You can now press play to preview your colour change. TIP: You can use the back and forth arrows to move from key frame to key frame.

Step 5: You can now export your new colour fade time-lapse by selecting the “Export” tab at the top of GoPro Studio. Have fun and enjoy creating your GoPro time-lapses.

GoPro Hero 6 Black Drive-Lapse Interval Comparison



Last year I made a video comparing different intervals when creating a drive-lapse (Driving Timelapse) with the Hero 5 Black. I decided to make an updated video using the Hero 6 Black as it is summer time and there are going to be many hitting the roads and adventuring this summer. This is a good resource to see how different intervals effect the look of your finished drive-lapse. In the test video I used intervals of .5 second, 1 second, 2 second and 5 second. You will notice in the video that the .5 second and 1 second intervals are most appealing and pleasing to the eye. The 2 second and 5 second intervals can look a bit jumpy.

With that said, there is definitely some uses for the higher intervals. For example if you are going on a long road trip and want to time-lapse it, using a low interval will leave you with a very long video when your done. A 5 second interval will leave you with a much more dramatic video that is shorter and won’t bore you viewers.
