Capture and share your world, this is all about GoPro. And we are glad to know that the new Hero4 Black model now supports 4K video recording. With a GoPro Hero4 4K camera falling into your hands, you may use it to capture dozens of 4K videos or movies for all kinds of activities, such as cycling, aviation, boating, diving, rock climbing or some other sports. But what if you have the need for editing GoPro Hero4 4K footage in Premiere Pro CC ? Don’t let it be your editing work hurdle. The article would show you how to convert GoPro Hero4 Black 4K videos to Premiere Pro CC for editing on Mac step by step. Just take a look. 


As we know, the GoPro Hero 4 Black recordings are in H.264 MP4 format in at resolutions up to 4K at 30fps or 1080p at 120fps. While, as of MC V8.2 you can only AMA link 4K footage and work at HD or lower. As most source footager is compressed fast drives are less of an issue. Core count and core speed are the performance factors, so you’d better refresh the processor line first. And with V8.3 or V8.4 we will get 2K and 4K resolution support and a new codec DNxHR so will have a 4K DNx codec. But even then the codec is compressed so the datarate is massivbely high. I have tried my best to make it, frustratingly, no luck.
