GoPro Hero3 Black Edition is the most advanced GoPro, ever. No expense was spared during its development, resulting in a GoPro that is 30% smaller, 25% lighter and 2x more powerful than previous models. Wearable and gear mountable, waterproof to 197' (60m), capable of capturing ultra-wide 1440p 48fps, 1080p 60 fps and 720p 120 fps video and 12MP photos at a rate of 30 photos per second. However, its 1080 60p MP4 recordings don't work well with Adobe Premier Pro cs6 on Mac.
Last time when I still used Hero2, my Adobe Premier Pro cs6 have no problem at all, but since I use my hero3, my Adobe Premier Pro cs6 started to have lag for playback. Why? Help me! I can t edit my video if this problem not fix. It is about size of video hero3 or fps of video or my computer?
To solve the Hero3 video import problem, we did the tests. We played GoPro Hero3 1080p video in QuickTime, it plays smoothly, but in CS6 it lags when we play it back without even rendering it. Finally, we found out that if video more than 30fps will lag in Premier Pro. So, how to get GoPro Hero3 1080 60p MP4 files into Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 smoothly? We will need to reformat Hero3 1080@60p MP4 to MPEG-2, Adobe Premiere's best editing format, with 30fps, which will be much easier and faster to edit.
Step 1: Launch the GoPro Hero3 Video Converter for Mac and load your 1080 60p MP4 files from your camera.
Tip: The top convert tool also can help you transcode any other file formats to any video as you need.
Step 2: Click the Format box; select Adobe Premiere/Sony Vegas> MPEG-2(*.mpg) as the best video format for Premiere Pro.
Step 3: To get a perfect video for editing in Premier Pro CS6(CS3/CS4/CS5/CS5.5 included), you d better press the Settings icon to set the video size as 1920*1080, frame rate as 30fps in the Profiles Settings panel.
Note: For MPEG-2(*.mpg) output format, 30fps is the highest frame rate which can be recognized in Adobe Premier Pro. If you really want to keep the original frame rate, you d better choose Adobe Premiere/Sony Vegas --> WMV (VC-1) (*.wmv) as the export format.
Step 4: Tap the Convert button; it will start to convert Hero3 MP4 video to Premiere Pro Cs6 supported format with best settings.
After the conversion, you can successfully copy GoPro Hero3 MP4 clips into Premiere Pro CS6 on Mac and edit GoPro Hero3 MP4 in Premiere Pro CS6 smoothly without lag or any other problem.
