FCP 7.0 GoPro footage editing
on Feb 8, 2012 at 3:04:37 am

I am having troubles with video clips from my gopro hero 2. I have been filming in 1080p and when i upload them to FCP, it says they are not the right format and not rendered. When i play them, the sound is an annoying beeping but the video still plays... other times it says "unrendered" across the screen.
I have been using the MPEG stream clip format converter in the tips and tutorials section on gopros website. No matter what format i put it in, it still doesnt work. Since FCP doesnt accept .mp4 files, i need to try a different format.

please help me out. im trying to edit all of this footage i have but i cant event get started...

Convert the footage to ProRes 422. Then import into FCP. FCP doesn't work with the MP4 footage natively.

Use MPEG STREAMCLIP to convert. In the COMPRESSION drop down menu, you will see Apple ProRes 422.

I just discovered something with my GoPro footage. Prior to which I have read all the tutorials and as said, transcode footage to Apple ProRes422. At some point I downloaded GoPros CineForm studio and it installed a codec or two and now I can natively edit GoPro MP4 files in FCP7 WITHOUT transcoding them. FCPX does this as well as Adobe Premier.

So my question is this, Does it matter? Is it better to transcode the files and have these giant GB files or if you can do it natively then do it natively? Ive read H.264 is NOT an editing codec. So am I losing quality by keeping these files in their native form?

thoughts? opinions?
