Yer raw footage straight from gopro
Protune turned off
FWIW this is the second hero 4 silver i have had
I had to return my first one after ony 2 days due to it freezing up
Am thinking it might be the issue as my computer doesnt regognise the device when connecting via usb.
My only doubt with that is that my hero 3 silver which is recognised still has the issue at 1920 x 1080

There is about 5-10 mins at 99% where the program is "not responding" according to the task manager. But if I leave it alone, it finishes.

I assume that the same applies to X8... but unfortunately Corel changed so much about the trial version this time round that registration could be just another thing they screwed up! So I can understand your frustration...

VideoStudio® Pro X8
Help with Downloading
Activate Trial Version - Video
Further down the page, there's a video showing the process to 'Activate your trial version of VideoStudio® Pro X7'. This may be the link to it. The process uses the windows that won't work for me, and seems to convert the trial version to the paid version.
If I can't run the trial version, I have no confidence that the paid version would work for me.

You may be right—but this page explicitly refers to registering the trial version.
Sorry, but I can't seem to find that on that page. It refers to activating the trial version -- but that usually means making it the full version, and as Brian said above, we recommend people don't follow that route but instead totally uninstall the trial version and download the full version for separate installation.
And the videos on that page only refer to installation of the full download and boxed versions, not the trial version...

Since the trial version won't even start normally on my computer, I'm unwilling to pay money to find out that the purchased version uses the same sort of windows/panels that don't work on my computer. The other posts in this thread seem to get the same problem with the purchased version (eg, here).
I do appreciate your efforts to help me.

I'm only have X8, so this may not be useful info, but I've tried exporting from a number of different GoPro formats from my Hero 3+ and I don't get that export error.

Bit of an update.
Well first issue was that my computer wasn't recognising my gopro hero 4 which I thought might have been part of the issue.
Still not resolved btw
It recognises my hero3 no problems no issues.
Also, after lots and lots of tests, it seem that I can render anything up until 1280 x 720 in anything up to 120 fps
Any frame size above that is when my issues start.
I tried both my hero 3 and 4 and the issue is across all setting on both cameras above 1280 x 720.
One thing I haven't tried is files from a different camera all together.
Will be my next test.
Any more info would be much appreciated

If/When you make a purchase you will need to completely remove the trial version - it has several functions removed or disabled - then download the complete programme which will come with a serial number which you will be able to register either through the guide or direct online - the fact that you appear not to be able to register the trial version - despite receiving several emails telling you that it is registered - has no relevance at all to a purchased copy.

So is there anybody else who can compare the file conversion speed of X8 with any older version? (Specifically for creating MP4 files because that is the case where I observed a large difference in the conversion speed).

Of course, it will stop working once the trial period expires, and I'll have no way to register a purchase unless this problem can be solved.
I dare say that it would work fine on a clean installation of Windows, but I'm not in a position to do that. I suspect that, if VS 11 had uninstalled itself completely, this problem wouldn't be occurring. (But I could be wrong about that.)
If you're right, it might come good soon. I was hoping to buy it before the current 15% off offer expires on 27 April.

Yes this is correct.
Will complete successfully and play back from the file in the target folder but if have VS open and click on the same file in the library, VS crashes.
I cant even highlight the thunbnail to delete it.

Error message says:
This program has encountered an unspecific error and has stopped functioning.
Please contact Corel Support and send the dump file for analysis.
Now I haven't sent this through to Corel Support as yet
I was hoping someone here had come across this before and had an easy solution.
For what its worth, I have un-installed and re-installed VS already, thinking in might resolve the issue
But, to no avail

I have VS x 6 ultimate full version.
I can output to Same as First Clip which is mp4 but cant set the project properties to my desired setting other than in avi
I don't convert to avi before VS
I would much rather keep it as mp4 through the whole process if I could

I'm scared to buy the program just to get a serial number in case I still can't enter it into the program due to the blank window.
I should also mention that I receive a 'thank you for registering' email from Corel whenever I go past the panel where you enter your email address. I've got 38 such emails now. Despite that, the next panel never loads and the web site doesn't indicate any registration (for the trial version or any other).

(This is a composite image, pasted together using Paintshop Pro X7—which works perfectly.)
This page really looks defunct. If anyone knows where the VS X8 installer might be picking it up from, I might be able to find and remove the offending vestige from my computer.
