  • GoPro conversion with Edius

    I've had a Go Pro HD camera for a while. It's an awesome little camera. The camera records in H.264 saved as and mp4 file. As far as I know this is a good delivery format but a bad editing format. My typical (basic) workflow is import file > right click, save as HQ file > open HQ file in Virtual Dub > downconvert and I'm good to go. This is if I just want to straight burn to DVD. I have a pretty powerful pc (for now anyway) but the render from H.264 to Canopus HQ is a little rough. I attached the camera to the front of my car and drove from Las Vegas to Hoover Dam. The file was about an hour. The render was probably double that and the resulting file was very big (compared to the 3.8gb H.264 original file). Any ideas for a better workflow? Will Edius 5.5 make any difference with playing H.264 on the timeline? Thanks.

    qick answer is yes. You can edit h624 without any conversion. just ensure your pc can handle it - basicially if the processor is Intel i7 then you are fine - anything else is hit n miss

        Mattie,

        If you look below my name you'll see the profile of my desktop. It will not play the H.264 (mp4) files that come out of the GoPro camera well. I thought it would but the fact is it won't and I'm not sure why. After converting it plays great but as I said the conversion takes a long time.

        Jerry - Any ideas? Do you think my pc needs tweaking / fixing ?
