Having trouble with converted GoPro footage from Cineform studio
on Jan 31, 2013 at 2:35:41 am

Hi, I'm having trouble using, or rather importing, GoPro footage that I have exported out of the CineForm Studio.

As soon as I select the file for import into After Effects, it IMMEDIATELY crashes. You know, when you get the "CS5 has suddenly stopped working" Box on your screen. So I have to inevitably close the program.

However, I can import the much flatter, raw file of the GoPro footage into AE (Before it was converted by CineForm), and that works just fine. But I want the color correction from Cineform into After Effects.

Am I doing something wrong? The file I am importing is a .MP4 file.

Correct, sorry I meant CS5.5...

Just tried some more files, still will not import if exported out of Cineform.

How disappointing...

I have the latest update for CS5.5 (Version 10.5.1) I just am not sure I understand. I'm sure the file isn't too big because its only a 47MB file.

I just really like the Protune settings and the color correction in Cineform and just wanted to import into After Effects to use some 3rd party plugins.

The ProTune colour correction settings are not baked into the video file, they are applied on the fly when the file is decoded by whichever application you are reading it in. I've never tried to use a ProTune Cineform file in AE but they work fine in Premier Pro CS6.

Perhaps you need to open the Cineform file in something else and then re-export it to another codec, like ProRes. This should bake in the colour correction that you applied in Cineform Studio.

Hi there! I had the very same problem. But after seeing your post & not finding much else out there I decided to try changing the conversion format in Cineform, from .mp4 to .avi , and voila! No problem! - Although the file size will be pretty large. :)
