Settings for exporting GoPro footage, sequence is PAL SD DV50
on Jun 25, 2013 at 2:39:40 pm

Master sequence and footage is PAL 625 SD with DV50 codec (HPX500)

I also have some GoPro footage, that I wish to use in the sequence.
The GoPro being progressive, I understand I might get issues with movements, etc.

But, what codec is best to use when exporting with MPEG Streamclip?
Also, the footage from the GoPro seems to be 1920x1080 (QT7 movie inspector). Should I in the MPEG-streamclip crop the film, or is that best done in FCP?

Any tips are (as always) greatly appreciated!

FCP7 plays the best with ProRes. The GoPro shoots a h.264 .mov file, and FCP chokes pretty quickly on h.264. I would transcode to ProRes, and do my resizing in FCP. I don't like making visual determinations such as resizing during the transcoding process. Better to leave yourself the resolution to pan/scan your footage in FCP.

Just my $.02
