GoPro CineForm Studio Software

GoPro CineForm Studio Software

GoPro Cineform Studio takes footage captured with the 3D HERO System and converts it into viewable 3D files. You can then export the files and watch them on your computer, online at sites like YouTube and on your 2D or 3D TV at home.

CineForm Studio - How it works

Software Features

  • Import 3D HERO System photos and videos and convert to 3D
  • Create 3D movies from photo time-lapses
  • Automatic 3D conversion mode provides simplicity
  • Manual 3D conversion mode provides advanced control
  • Anaglyph (red/blue for 2D TVs, computer, and online viewing)
  • Active (for viewing on active shutter 3DTVs)
  • Passive (for viewing on polarized 3DTVs)
Editing Modes
  • Anaglyph
  • Active
  • Passive
  • Support for external display
  • .MP4 / H.264
  • GoPro CineForm 422 codec for further editing in Apple Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere, Avid Media Composer, Sony Vegas, Apple iMovie, Windows Movie Maker and more.
Video Adjustments

    (only compatible with GoPro captured content)
  • Frame-rate adjust for slow motion
  • Exposure
  • Contrast
  • Saturation
  • Color Temperature
  • Image flip rotation
  • Frame Resize (Up-res/Down-res)
  • Cropping and zoom

GoPro CineForm Studio Software System Requirements:

Minimum Requirements:
(For video playback in quarter or half-resolution 3D)
  • Windows XP, Vista, 7
  • Intel Core2 Duo or AMD Athon II X2, 2.4 GHz
  • 2GB RAM
  • 1280×800 screen resolution
  • Any graphics card that supports OpenGL
  • Intel Mac ONLY
  • OS 10.6
  • Dual Core Processor
  • 2GB RAM
Recommended Requirements:
(For full-resolution 3D playback)
  • Windows XP, Vista, 7
  • Intel i7-860 or better
  • 4GB RAM
  • Windows 7 64-bit
  • Fast dedicated media drive
  • 1920×1080 or higher screen resolution
  • Quicktime Install required for .MOV file conversion
  • Intel Mac ONLY
  • Quad Core Processor, 4GB RAM
  • 1920×1080 or higher screen resolution
  • Fast dedicated media drive
Required for passive 3D (interleaved) or side-by-side output to consumer 3D TV:
  • Any OpenGL-enabled graphics card with secondary HDMO or DVI output
Required for active 3D (120 Hz) displays:
  • nVidia 3D Vision or 3D Vision Pro
  • nVidia Quadro FX 2000, 3000, 3800, 4000, 4800, 5000, 5800, 6000
  • Dual-Link DVI cable
External Hard Drive Recommendations:
  • 500GB-1TB
  • 7200 RPM
  • USB 2.0 connection
  • Dedicated power supply (if faster connection is available, ie. ESata recommended if possible, USB is acceptable but will cause slower transfer speeds)
  • 500GB-1TB
  • 7200 RPM
  • Firewire 800 recommended (most OS Snow Leopard machines have this). Firewire 400 and USB is acceptable but will cause slower transfer speeds
  • Dedicated power supply
Compatibility With Other Editing Software:
  • Avid Media Composer 5.x
  • Adobe Premiere CS5.x
  • Final Cut Pro 7.x
  • Sony Vegas 9.x or 10.x
  • iMovie
  • Premiere Elements 7.x
  • Windows Movie Maker

Download Software: PC | Mac

Note: 3D GoPro CineForm 422 encoded files are much larger than GoPro native .mp4 files. To manage 3D converted media, we suggest using an external storage device.

The application will run on slower CPUs, but 3D playback, even in quarter-res mode, may not be processed smoothly.

It seems to me that when the camera needs software to view on a computer, only half of the product is in the box.

@Torrey Gillott
Videos from any GoPro Camera can be viewed in any software capable of playing back MP4 video files or displaying JPG images. This software is only required for creating 3D videos when using 2 HERO or HERO2 cameras with the 3D HERO System.
