GoPro Releases More Free Apps For Video Editing

After GoPro acquired two startups offering powerful edition applications, now the California-based company has repackaged the software to offer GoPro users two free video editing apps.

According to CNet, one app is for advanced cutting, the other for automated edits. The two new video editing apps provided for free by GoPro offer an easy way to turn action-packed footage into something snappy, short and watchable. Both apps allow users to quickly create and share smartphone or GoPro videos.

Digital Trends reports that the first GoPro application is called Quik, formerly Replay. The app was formerly built by the French firm Stupeflix. Quik is being claimed to be the "fastest and easiest" way to transform your footage into an entertaining sequence.

Before adding effects and transitions, the video editing app can automatically analyze your video in order to find the best moments. Then Quik can also match the cuts to the beat of your chosen soundtrack. Users can also add title slides, custom text overlays and even emojis.

GoPro is offering now Quik for free. The application for iOS is available on iTunes Store, and the variant running on Android can be downloaded from the Play Store.

The second GoPro video editing app offering is called Splice. With the Splice application, users get more manual control over the look of their final cut. Splice might not be as fast as Quik but it still allows users to create "in just minutes" fully customized, professional-looking videos.

Splice was formerly designed by the Texas-based software company Vemory. The mobile app is described by its developer as packing "the power of a professional desktop editor." 

Splice certainly comes with plenty of features and functionality. Editors are able to add filters, trim clips, choose transition styles, create slow-motion sequences and more. GoPro also makes Splice available for free, but for the moment, the app runs only on iOS.

Until now, most GoPro users usually used powerful third-party video editing applications instead of GoPro's bundled software. The new feature rich apps offered by the action-camera maker will help create a more seamless shoot-and-edit experience for videographers. GoPro users will be able create impressive clips with minimum effort.
