How do you prepare your GoPro (upside down) content?

I am curious what tools you all use to process GoPro video that needs to be rotated 180 degrees.

Unfortunately, FCP X 10.4.5 will not allow rotating browser clips; only in the timeline. This is disappointing since I'd like to be able to play the clips right-side up and choose them from the browser rather than a storyline full of clips.

Compress has no option to rotate or flip the clips so I can't process them there.

GoPro Quick didn't seem to have batch processing, or at least I haven't found it yet.

I am about ready to go try DaVinci Resolve. Though whichever tool I use, one thing I do not want to happen is I don't want to lose any metadata and I want to maintain the original creation timestamp and timecode.

Your suggestions please.

Hi Tangier,
Did you try rotating in QT7?
This will change only the metadata for the rotation.
Not sure if FCPX will honor this though, but worth a test.
(If that works I can add it to QTchange.)

Hi Tangier,

I use the Finder Quick Actions. This video explains the steps:

Surely you just select the clip, then select "open" in the clip menu, rotate it in the timeline then it's rotated in the browser as well?

That's what I do

You know something - you're right and you taught me valuable lesson. I am so used to using key commands and/or double clicking a synced clip to reveal it's contents, I didn't think to use "open" in the clip menu. Additionally, it's not an option when right-clicking on clip.

However I was really looking for a way to batch do this, but thanks.

I've assigned a key shortcut to "open clip" then it takes me no time at all to work my way through a batch of clips and "paste" effects to each clip.

Would be great if you could "paste effects" to clips in the browser though - perhaps submit a feature request?
