Using GoPro Studio

“Using GoPro Studio”

Here is my first attempt at making a video using my GoPro Hero3+ Black edition camera. I used the FREE editing software, GoPro Studio, which gives you free templates making putting together a quick video super easy. Now I just need to work on making the transitions a bit better; practice makes perfect.
