“Hi admin, Avid Media Composer won’t import my GoPro Hero 7 4K footage from the SxS card. What other way would you suggest to get the footage to work on my MacBook Pro in Avid Media Composer? Thanks for your help!”
The Hero 7 Black, which replaces the now discontinued Hero 6 Black, comes with new ‘Hypersmooth’ electronic image stabilisation, which GoPro founder Nick Woodman called “the best in-camera video stabilisation in any camera, ever”.
What do I do to import GoPro Hero 7 Black 4K H.265 video clips into Avid Media Composer for further editing? For a fast and fluid workflow, you can transcode GoPro Hero 7 4K video to DNxHD codec first. Check out a quick guide on how to do this below. There are around five other new features, though, compared to the Hero 6 Black. The biggest one is what GoPro is calling ‘HyperSmooth’ stabilisation, which is a souped up version of the electronic image stabilisation we saw on its previous flagship and now works in its 4K/60fps mode.
H.265 encoded MP4 video is highly compressed, good for transporting, but poor for editing. By the way, in order to play H.265 MP4 videos on PC smoothly, your processor must be very powerful.
