VideoProc helps you post-process and reduce the file size of any video without quality loss - regardless of whether it was 4K footage taken on a smartphone, camera or even an action cam such as GoPro. Learn more

Why you should be using VideoProc to edit, convert, resize and adjust your GoPro video content

If you own an action camera, it’s probably a GoPro. But if you are planning on sharing any footage of your latest outdoor adventure with friends and colleagues, you will need more than just hardware. You will need software.

If you own an action camera, it’s probably a GoPro. But if you are planning on sharing any footage of your latest outdoor adventure with friends and colleagues, you will need more than just hardware. You will need software.

Specifically, software such as Digiarty’s VideoProc. 

What is VideoProc?

VideoProc is video editing and conversion software for people who want an easy, stable and fast tool that can be used to post-process and reduce the file size of video footage – regardless of whether it was taken on a smartphone, camera or even an action cam such as  GoPro. 

VideoProc is touted as an easy-to-use option when you need to quickly and easily convert GoPro footage into a format that its media player will actually recognise and read. It’s especially good for users who have to handle 4K video content files, since they usually require more technically-intensive software to edit and convert due to their larger size.

If you know what you want and don’t have the time, expertise or a computer powerful enough to opt for more advanced or professional-grade software solutions such as Final Cut X or Adobe Premiere Pro, VideoProc is an alternative well worth exploring.

Read on to see how to process and reduce the file size of a GoPro video without quality loss. You may also watch the video below to see how VideoProc facilitates video processing. 

How does hardware acceleration make VideoProc different?

VideoProc has a key feature that other video processing tools don’t: It uses hardware acceleration to achieve better results by tapping tap into your computer's hardware in a more specialised way. Through hardware acceleration, software can recognise which tasks are best suited to the computer’s graphics processing unit (GPU), allowing VideoProc to edit, convert and resize video content faster and more efficiently.  

It’s about getting your computer to work smarter not harder. Hardware acceleration benefits the end-user in several ways: 

1. Optimal file sizes

When compared with several competing conversion and video software kits, video content converted to MP4 (H.264) with VideoProc is significantly smaller in terms of file size.

According to Digiarty, its exclusive video processing technology can deliver a compression ratio of more than 90 per cent. Those gains in efficiency Work over a broad range of formats and codecs.

VideoProc supports more than 370 built-in video audio codecs and comes ready to play ISO images, HEVC, H.264, MPEG-4, AVI, MKV, MOV, M2TS, MOD camcorder footage, 1080p multi-track HD videos and 4K @60fps video content.

2. Better quality

Video content converted or edited using VideoProc maintains almost all of the original footage quality due to the deinterlacing technology and the high-quality engine integrated with the software.

And, in some cases, VideoProc can improve the quality of a GoPro video footage. The software is able to automatically optimise image quality dynamically, reduce noise and adjust definition to make the final product clearer.

3. Lower CPU usage

As a result of the hardware acceleration used by VideoProc, the processing power required to convert video content is much lower and the strain on the Central Processing Unit (CPU)  is less than when using other conversion suites.

The temperature of a CPU during VideoProc rendering that uses hardware acceleration is significantly lower as a by-product of more efficient CPU management. This reduces the risk of any damage or problems associated with an overheated CPU. By leveraging hardware acceleration, software solutions such as VideoProc can convert video content at higher speeds with less risk of thermal damage.

It also means that users can work in the background while video content renders. 

What other features else does VideoProc offer?

VideoProc offers an array of additional features that go beyond video conversion. The software has both easy-to-access presets and more advanced video audio parameter adjustment options to use when touching up large HD or 4K footage taken from a GoPro camera. 

They include:

  •  Stabilize Video
  •  Noise Removal
  • Make GIF
  •  Lens Correction
  • MakeMKV
  • Adjust playback speed and audio volume
  • Merge
  • Rotate / Flip
  • Effects
  • Subtitles
  • Crop
  • Cut

One-Stop Video Processing Software

Ultimately, it doesn’t matter how good your hardware is. Software is always going to be necessary to produce the best results and get the most out of your action camera.

If you’re looking to make simple and easy adjustments or conversions, VideoProc streamlines that process in a way that makes more sense than other more complicated or expensive alternatives.
