AVI Video Fails to Import into GoPro Studio
“Hi, all, I am trying to import an .avi clip into GoPro Stduio to do some editing. Unfortunately, I can’t even import the AVI file. I have tried using different frame rates in the project but nothing changes. Am I doing something wrong? Are there any workarounds to go through this? Please help. I would really appreciate any help.”

AVI is just a container format, or you can call it a wrapper. Meaning inside that file is an audio and video codec. If the video/audio codec inside the AVI container is not supported by GoPro Studio, you will fail to import AVI files into GoPro Stduio. In that case, you will need to transcode your AVI file into something you can edit within GoPro Studio. Check the guide below for details on how to convert an AVI file to a GoPro Studio compatible format.

Step 2: Select MP4 as output format
For a good editing performance, we would recommend choosing ‘HD H.264/MPEG-4 AVC Video (*.mp4)’ as target format under ‘HD Video’ column.

Useful tips:
1. This converter supports batch conversion, so you can load multiple files to it for conversion at a time.
2. By ticking off ‘Merge into one file’ option, you can combine the selected video clips into a single file.

Step 3: Custom video and audio settings
If necessary, you can click ‘Settings’ button and go to ‘Profiles Settings’ panel to modify video and audio settings like video encoder, resolution, video bit rate, frame rate, aspect ratio, audio encoder, sample rate, audio bit rate, and audio channels. 3D settings are also available.

Step 4: Start transcoding AVI video files for GoPro Studio
When ready, click ‘Convert’ to start format conversion. As soon as the conversion is complete, you can click ‘Open Folder’ button to get the generated MP4 files for use in GoPro Studio with very good quality. Nothing could be simpler or more immediate.
