Hi Mark,

Thanks for responding! Not much more going on for FCP7 on this forum apparently 😉 To start off by answering your question, just about everything I had that would give me ProRes, including EditReady, Streamclip, Wondershare, and Compressor. This morning my DP came with the Lumix and I was relieved to see that the files played fine on the camera. My nightmare week-end was over! When I converted with Editready (which it recognized and converted), all I had was a black frame and the sound.

But in QT I had the oddest thing: a thumbnail showing the 1st frame of the GoPro that we were running at the same time, with my DP in front of it when he turned it on. When trying to play the file in QT, it was this crazy freeze frame with a bunch of horizontal pixel groups all over the frame. It still beats me, but apparently the WiFi and/or Bluetooth functions of the Lumix were communicating with the GoPro! A total mystery to this day.

After intensive research on the web, I finally stumbled over and purchased Aiseesoft Video Converter and whaddya know? It worked perfectly. So I'm back on the right track and happy.

Too bad even the brand new GoPro 7 Black (not to mention any other video camera I've dealt with) is not capable of keeping sound in sync. You lose a good 3 to 4 frames by the end of every file. No problem for me because I marked slates and rolled good sound separately, but it's always a nuisance to have to edit into your camera-sound in order to keep it in sync.

Cheers and many thanks again for your interest. Best from Hamburg,


Michael Brown
