GoPro Hero 3 could be the world’s best and most versatile camcorder as capturing fabulous full HD footages in ultra-wide 1440p 48fps, 1080p 60 fps and 720p 120 fps. It comes out with a much smaller body size than its predecessors, while producing ever better video quality than others. However, some users complain that they’ve met problems as they wanted to edit Hero 3 1080p 60fps footages on Premiere, Premiere Pro CS6 included. It seems that Adobe Premiere Pro is not compatible with GoPro Hero 3 footages.
In order to check and find out the problems, Doremisoft R&D team has done some tests. They played GoPro 1080p .mp4 movies on some media players like Windows Media Player and QuickTime and found that the videos were played smoothly without any problem, but they failed to handle the footages on Premiere. After several attempts, eventually, Doremisoft drew a conclusion that once the video is captured in over 30 frames per second, Premiere will not recognize it. Users will need to convert Hero 3 1080p MP4 to Premiere Pro MPEG-4 with 30fps if they want to edit the footages on it.
First of all, download, set up and run the GoPro Hero 3 to Premiere Converter. Connect Hero 3 to your computer then to load the Hero 3 1080p 60fps MP4 videos you want to convert by clicking "Add Files". For saving converting time, you can transfer the footages to your computer beforehand.
Move to the menu bar “Convert To" and click to it so as to set the output video format. Select Premiere Pro accepted video format from the tab as "Premiere"--->"Adobe Premiere MPEG-4 (*.mpg)". You can also customize the detailed output video parameters by hitting "Settings".
When you finish all the settings above, just press the big blue button to begin the conversion. After that, you can easily import Hero 3 footages to Premiere for editing.
