How to Solve can't Import GoPro Hero 5 4K Video to Final Cut Pro?

GoPro has finally released their newest action camera the GoPro Hero 5! With 2 new model Hero5 Black and Hero5 Session. For video capture, the Hero 5 retains the same specs as the Hero 4, although it's not repurposing the same chipset. It can shoot up to 4K at 30 frames per second and Full HD 1080p at 120 fps (max bit rate is 60Mbps). Though 4K MP4 generated from Hero 5 is well compatible with some of Mac software like QuickTime playeriTunes, etc. However, when it comes to importing the GoPro Hero 5 4K MP4 videos to FCP 7 for editing, it is a painful experience to Hero 5 owners. 



In fact, H.264 MP4 is an ideal file type for video capture in an SLR camera, delivering relatively compact file sizes with image quality noticeably superior to alternate video compressions (such as Motion JPEG). However, the H.264 compression format requires that files be transcoded into a format better suited to editing, effects, and color grading. 

Worse still, learn from Apple official site, though FCP X has been updated to provide unprecedented performance when editing and monitoring 4K video. Final Cut Pro X natively supports 4K ProRes, Sony XAVC and REDCODE RAW, the old version FCP X or Final Cut Pro 6/7 like many editors use 1080p as primary delivery format and will continue to do so for a long time. If you want to have a smooth 4K MP4 from GoPro Hero 5 and FCP workflow, you are advised to convert Hero 5 4K video to Apple Prores Codec MOV, which is natively compatible with Final Cut Pro.

In this case, Dimo Videomate for Mac is best choice to get the work done. Overall, this program is a completely professional Mac 4K video converter, player and editor. Unlike some free video converters, it provides hundreds of output format presets for 4K videos, such as Apple ProRes 422, Apple ProRes 4444 for Final Cut Pro, DNxHD for Avid Media Composer, MPEG-2 for Premiere better editing. 

This Ultra HD Video Converter is also available to customize the output resolutions to any size the users want so as to downscale Gopro Hero 5 4K MP4 to 1080p for smooth editing. With the built-in video editor, you can choose to trim, crop, add watermark to edit your original 4K MP4 videos from Hero 5. Thus, with the video converter app, you can fast transcode GoPro Hero 5 4K video to FCP X/7/6 friendly format with ease. If you are working on Windows (Windows 10 included), please turn to Videomate which can transcode 4K to Apple Prores for FCP on Windows.

Converting Gopro Hero 5 4K footage to FCP editable video 

Note: If you are FCP X users, before you try to do the conversion, don't forget to make sure that you have installed the Apple ProRes Codec manually since the FCP X asks users to install it by themselves.

1. Launch the 4K Video Converter for Mac and click add button to import Hero 5 4K clips to the program for converting. 



2. Click "Select Format" bar to choose the output format. You can freely choose "Format > Editor > Final Cut Pro X or Final Cut Pro 7" for editing natively. 

Tip: You can click the "Settings" button and video size, bitrate and fame rate are flexible and can be adjusted as you like. Since Final Cut Pro 6/7 and even the Final Cut Pro X can’t handle 4K well, 1080p would be the best settings. Of course, if you wanna get a 4K workflow in FCP, you keep the original video resolution.

3. Hit "Start" button to start transcoding Gopro Hero 5 4K MP4 to Final Cut Pro editable ProRes 422 codec. 

Once the process completes, you can find the generated videos via "Open" button. Now, it is easy for you to transfer the encoded Gopro Hero 5 4K videos to FCP X/7/6 for further editing and even share edited video from FCP to iPhone/iPad/Android for watching with Dimo Free Media Server.

Although Adobe claimed that Premiere Pro CC can handle (usually) 4K files without much problem, many people have found it a painful experience to edit 3DR Solo 4K footage in Premiere Pro CC. And you will encounter laggy playback problems now and them. What's more, Adobe PP CC can handle (usually) 4K files without much problem, but it is extremely hardware intensive. And below is Premiere Pro CC optimized 4K playback settings.

INFO: Mercury Engine Transmit to second monitor, takes away apx. 5-10% performance (Player Window/Wrench Icon/Enable Transmit). 
RedCode/Cineform movie files: Set playback resolution to 1/2 or 1/4 size will increase performace apx. 10-20% (Player Window/Full-1/2-1/4,etc.) 
Increase Playback Preroll and Postroll time to 3-8 seconds for smoother playback, especially with slower harddrives (Edit/Preferences/Playback/Preroll-Postroll). 
Disable Lumetri Scopes if not needed. They have been optimized in PP 2015.3 but you loose 3-8% performance when enabled (Window/Lumetri Scopes).
