Gopro editing software

Well it won't be long now before my commuting season will begin again. My latest addition to my bicycle commuting accessories is my Gopro camera.I'm just wondering what everyone is using for editing software on a PC to work their videos.

My LCD backpack came Thursday for my Gopro. I just updated the firmware and installed the LCD screen and it works great. It is a nice feature to have on the camera not only to see the image but the on screen readouts. The cryptic settings menu on the front screen are a bit annoying but I have also thought I was recording when I wasn't. It was a nice addition to the camera.

I think I have narrowed it down to this editing program
http://www.magix.com/us/movie-edit-pro/plus/
I have found it as low as $60 bucks. seems to be about the most compatible program to the Gopro camera according to my research for under $100

VirtualDub. There's a very good image stabilization plug-in for it that works wonders.

It's also free.

I did wind up getting the Magix move edit pro plus for $60 off Amazon. in all the research I did this seems to be the best software for my system.

I use CyberLink's PowerDirector 9, but only because I already have it for other reasons.

Nice buy with the BacPac. I am considering it, but not sure if I want to drop another $80 on it. I am looking forward to the battery BacPac for those longer rides.

I love the LCD backpack, aside from the fact that it nice to see what you filming it makes going through the settings much simpler. I also like to know if the camera is actually filming while looking at the back of it.

Hi Timber_8,

I assume you own the new BacPac by GoPro. I have one question if I may - I am diving with my camera and was wondering how you get the camera water/air tight if you add the BacPac panel to it. One of the strong features of the camera is its dust/water protection.

How much did you pay for the BacPac?

Many thanks,
R

The new LCD screen comes with 4 new back doors for the camera and the wrist strap mount. it is easy to change the new back doors
