GoPro Editing Tip: Cut 4K/2.7K/1080P Footage with High Quality

Question from GoPro Forum: "I recorded a lot of footages with GoPro during my ski holidays. There're also a lot of useless footages that I want to cut out but keep original resolution and frame rate. I used GoPro Studio to cut the footage but when I convert to either .avi or .mov (the two options provided) while keeping the res and fps, the resulting files are 8 times larger! How can I just take the recorded MP4 movies, cut them and save in the same format with the same settings while reducing the file size proportionally to the reduced movie length?"

GoPro can help you produce excellent footages for sports and travel. Meanwhile, something unwanted segments probably appear resulting in small flaws in whole clip. You're believed to film an absolutely perfect work free from all defects but you also know that it's too big to share online. In any case, it's necessary to cut GoPro video to remove useless parts or reduce length for size shrinking. Quality is important as well. The resulting file with high or furthermore original resolution and frame rate is preferred.
