Sara Hoopes asks:
I’ve been shooting a lot with the GoPro camera and have yet to figure out a format that FCP likes from these cameras. They shoot 1080 Mpeg-4 but if I am lucky enough to get them to import the files, they quickly give me errors and red canvas windows, etc. I can’t get it to even import the clips shot at 60fps at all.
Can you tell me what I should be converting these to before importing them into FCP?
Larry replies: Sara, thanks for asking.
Convert them to ProRes 422 using either Compressor or MPEG Streamclip.
