Q: GoPro Hero 4 footage in Premiere Pro CC

Has anyone out there been editing footage from their GoPro Hero 4 in Premiere Pro CC? I have not been able to get clean playback in Premiere Pro CC, it’s always choppy. I was wondering if anyone else is having this issue or if anyone is getting clean playback. This is a question specific to Premiere Pro CC, thanks.

GoPro Hero4 is the most advanced GoPro yet. Featuring improved image quality and a 2x more powerful processor with 2x faster video frame rates, HERO4 Black takes Emm Award-winning GoPro performance to a whole new level. Incredible high-resolution 4K30 and 2.7K50 video and high frame rate 1080p120 video enable stunning, immersive footage of you and your world. The point here, you will find it a painful experience to upload GoPro Hero4 4K to Adobe Premiere Pro. And there’re some frequently asked questions quoted as above.

Although Adobe Premiere Pro is compatible with MP4 format, a compressed output H.264 .mp4 from GoPro Hero4 is not ideal for editing. What’s more, Adobe PP CS6, CC can handle 4K files without much problem, but it is extremely hardware intensive. When you tried to load some 4K MP4 files from GoPro Hero 4, you will find it’s hard work. To solve those problems, the quick workaround is to transcode GoPro Hero4 MP4 files to Adobe Premiere natively supported formats. Along with some help from third-party software, it can be done effortlessly. Here I share a simple guide on how to convert GoPro Hero4 4K files for editing in Adobe Premiere Pro smoothly. If you’re facing the issues, read on to find the answer.

Here I share a simple guide on how to convert GoPro Hero4 MP4 files for Adobe Premier Pro editing smoothly.

Step 1: Add Gopro Hero4 footage

Install and launch the GoPro Hero4 to Premiere Pro video converter and load source MP4 clips(not matter in 1080p, 4K) to it.

Step 2: Choose output format

Click “Format” pull down list to select Adobe Premiere/Sony Vegas> MPEG-2(*.mpg) as the best video format for Premiere Pro. WMV, MOV formats are the good choice as well.

Step 3: Advanced Profile Settings

In case the default settings do not fit your requirement, you can click “Settings” button and enter “Profile Settings” panel to adjust video size, bit rate, frame rate, sample rate and audio channels. Here personally I recommend you to set the video size as 1920*1080p for better editing. Of course, if you want to get original 4K resolution, just keep the video size as original.

Step 4: Start encoding GoPro Hero 4 videos to Premiere Pro CS5/CS6/CC

Click “Convert” button to start transcoding Gopro Hero4 MP4 video to MPG/MOV/WMV for importing to Premiere Pro CS6/CC or Adobe PP CS3/CS4/CS5.

When the conversion task is finished, click “Open” button to get the exported files and then import the converted GoPro MP4 files into Adobe Premiere Pro To do further editing flawlessly.
