How to use GoPro GPS and sensor data in After Effects?

Convert your data with Telemetry Extractor for GoPro and use the Telemetry Template to handle it within AE

Which GoPro cameras are supported?

These cameras contain GPS, accelerometer, gyroscope, ISO, shutter speed and more data: HERO11, HERO10, HERO9, HERO8, HERO7 Black, HERO7 Silver, HERO6 Black, HERO5 Black, Max and Fusion.

These cameras contain accelerometer, gyroscope and in some cases camera settings: HERO12 Black, HERO11 Mini, HERO10 Bones, HERO5 Session and HERO7 White.

How to convert the data for After Effects?

You can load, visualize and convert your data with Telemetry Extractor. Use the Premium version for faster and more comprehensive results, or the free Lite one for basic functionality.

There, export your data to the After Effects format (mgJSON)

Why use Telemetry Extractor Premium vs. the Lite one?

Mostly because it can join the data of consecutive videos as a single MGJSON file, so you can create longer, more comprehensive visualizations.

Can the GPS Path show satellite images or Google Maps?

Not easily. For that, use Telemetry Overlay instead.

Is there an easier alternative?

Yes. Telemetry Overlay allows you to create your data dashboard without the need of third-party professional tools like After Effects. It has an easy drag-and-drop interface, hundreds of customization options and more gauge options and data types.

Can I share my video with telemetry somewhere?

Yes, please! The Facebook community is probably the best place to do so, but if you prefer to do it somewhere else, get in touch to increase your audience.

What gauges are included?

Depending on your camera model, these are the available streams:

  • GPS: Speed, Distance, Altitude, GPS Path, Altitude Path, Course Direction, Speed Tracker, Vertical Speed, Slope, Time
  • Accelerometer: G-Force, Acceleration, Air Time, G-Force Path
  • Gyroscope: Rotation, Total Rotated, Lean Angle (experimental)
  • Shutter speed, ISO: Camera Settings
How to load the data in AE?

Use the After Effects template to select the gauges you want to display, import the MGJSON file, drop it into the desired gauge composition and use the Control layer's effects panel to set the imported data as a source and customize how it looks.

What software do I need in order to run this?

Adobe After Effects 2020 or newer.

Can the project be longer than 1 hour?

Yes. Expand the duration of your composition from its settings, unhide and unlock all the hidden layers and extend their duration as well.

Keep in mind that Adobe After Effects cannot import mgJSON files longer than 3 hours. If that is what you need, either find a way to compress the duration of your data before converting it to mgJSON, or use Telemetry Overlay instead.

Is this a subscription or a one-time payment?

Pay once. Use forever!

Plus, get support for one year, then optionally extend it for a fraction of the initial cost.
