    Help Trying to Pair/Sync a Split Screen GoPro Video

    Thank you for the replies guys ! borate: , It sounds like i did pretty much what you mentioned , with the exception of clicking B in the effects box , and when i tried to "drag" them , is when it seemed that it made matters worse and it would never go back to where it was , which is what confuses me , also i am not sure what Sync Locked is , i am assuming this is a GoPro setting somewhere in the camera setup that i missed , ....... does it require a wireless remote ?? , if so i have not purchased one yet , i just push one on , then the other , by hand , but as mentioned , the time between each camera recording is only a matter of a second or 2 i think , basically the time it takes to reach from one camera on the mouthguard to one on top rear of my helmet , but i will go over the GoPro instructions and see what i missed about the Sync Lock , and retry making sure i am using the B ( i don't recall doing that)........... EDIT: , i just looked thru the 3+ Silver manual and i could not find anything on Sync Lock , so not sure what it is or if its only on the newr 4-5-6 cameras Nationalsolo: , I will also try to adjust the clip speed and see if there is a difference , as i asked GoPro if there was a difference in recording between the 3+ silver and the 3 silver and they said they are the same , although in reviewing all my footage from each weekend i did notice that as the recording process takes place , they each break up the segments in different lengths , so where one (3+) has a 19:53 and a 6:12 for the split on a single recording session , the rear (3) has a 17:35 and a 8:35 for the split on the same recording session , so when i set the 2 clips together in 1 timeline one is 26:05 long and the other on the next timeline is 26:10 long , which is only 5 seconds difference , but not sure if its because of recording speed is different between the 3 and 3+ , or it just took me 5 seconds to reach back and push the button to stop the recording on the second camera from the first , but i would not think that 5 seconds would make that much of a difference , as when i play them both they are more like 10-15 seconds apart in sequence from timeline 1 to 2 , and that is where i have issues getting them to be around the same frame as the other so it looks like your watching a front/rear view simultaneously I would think the 10 second difference would only be in the overall length of the total video recorded , not in the time it actually records each segment , which seems to be about a 2 and a quarter minute difference in the first half and a 2 and a eighth minute difference in the second half , which i have no control in adjusting , as its a set time that it splits each video into segments that is built into the software of each GoPro model , which the only differences i could find was this time recording before each split , and the 30 and 60fps that the 3+ does where the 3 only does 24 and 30fps , but i do my recording on 30fps on both so that should not be a factor , other than those 2 things , i can't find any other difference between the 3 and 3+ Silver
  2. First post here ...... i have struggled for 2 weeks to get registered here , as the site was having issues with my email address , even though 1 of them met the requirements (no underscore) , so after a few emails someone finally registered me from their end ..... (Thank you Josh) Issue: I was trying to do a "Split Screen" video in the GoPro Studio , and it only works when both videos are the same length , but if you edit the length , then it won't Pair them , and GoPro no longer supports GoPro Studio *go figure* , so i downloaded the Video Pad editor and am having the same issue sort of , as i can't find any way to Pair/Sync a Split Screen video , so how do i "Pair/Sync" 2 GoPro videos , 1 is from a Hero 3+ Silver , the other is from a Hero 3 Silver , they are the same format (MP4) , but every time i try to edit them to be the same length by cutting the end of the video off but leaving the beginning the same (videos i am cutting to 15 minutes from about 17-19) , but when i try to get them side by side in the editor , they do not play at the same time , they are off , even though i pushed the Record buttons at almost the same time and if i play them individually they seem to be starting at the same time (within 1 or 2 seconds from each other) , so they "should" be close enough in time to sync , but its way off , so if i try to move either of the videos in the timeline , then it seems its worse , then i can never get them back to the original frame without what seems to be cutting/losing portions as it scrunched the video up then moving it in the timeline , its really confusing as to why i can't get them to Pair or sync , so i have to start over , and end up with the same result every time The demo videos i have watched on this site to use the editor did not help as they do not seem to be pairing 2 videos , they seem to be just putting 2 random videos side by side , which does not help my situation ..... Basically the videos are dirt bike/ Moto videos from my helmet cam , i have 1 facing front and 1 facing the rear , i want to be able to have them side by side on the screen , so half and half/the same size , one of the front view the other of the rear , but they need to play at the same time per frame , or as close as i can get them , so when viewing you can look at either video and see your in the same place on the track , etc. , i can get the sound off on 1 so i only hear the front , which is good , but i can't get the videos to match frame per frame , or close enough so it looks even Any ideas on how to do this ??? ( i am using the "free" version) , as there does not seem to be a lot of info on this subject and the manual does not help at all in this situation , or am i out of luck ??? Any help is appreciated .... Thanks .... Jim
