Opening 4K GoPro video into Premiere Pro CC/CS6/CS5

Summary: Go out there and capture something to your GoPro footage, Pay attention to your camer’s settings in order into Premiere Pro CC/CS6/CS5 editting. 


Here are some things to consider: Look at the camera resolution. Standard 1080p HD video is 1920 x 1080 pixels. The 4K or 2.7K video settings are both higher resolutions than the 1080p setting, so you can safely crop or scale those videos down to 1080p without losing image quality. On the other hand, 720p or WVGA settings are smaller than standard 1080p HD video, so if you want to achieve 1080p, you need to scale your video upward, which may make your video appear not as sharp. 

Think about the video frame rate. It controls how many video frames are captured or played over time. The higher the frame rate, the smoother the video will appear during playback. The lower the frame rate, the choppier the video will appear — in such cases, it may appear to stutter. Very high frame rates are great for slowing down a scene to achieve a slow-motion effect. Slowing down a high frame rate can produce very smooth and realistic output. Slowing down a low frame rate, however, causes even more stuttering and jerky movement, and generally doesn’t lend itself to high-quality output. In my own work, I prefer to shoot at either 1080p at 60 fps, or 2.7K at 30 fps, depending on how much action there will be in the shot.
