GoPro Premiere Pro CS5 Settings

This is what I’m currently using to edit my GoPro video in Premiere Pro CS5 on MacOSX. Your Video Preview Codecs will probably different than mine. You might have “Cineform” listed or you might just want to use “Quicktime”.

For 1080p (“r5”) I use this:

For 720p @60fps I use this:
(After looking at this screen shot a few weeks later  I realized that I don’t typically have the codec set to “Animation”. Usually it’s .h264 I believe)

Don’t worry about the frame rate here. Assuming you shot 60fps so you can edit slow motion footage…after you import your 60fps clips right-click them and select “Interpret Footage”

Then set “Assume this frame rate” to 29.97 (I’m pretty sure you don’t want to set it at 30 but I could be wrong).

For 3D I’ve downloaded the Cineform 3D trial. It loads all of the presets for you but it costs $999 if you want to buy it. “FirstLight” which is the application that comes with this download is more powerful than the free GoPro Cineform 3D download.

Somebody at Cineform support said that Neo v5.5 is probably a good choice for my needs.

I would suggest looking at our Neo v5.5 product (it will eventually get renamed Studio Premium, and it’s only $299). This gives you FirstLight and everything you will need to edit your GoPro 3D footage as you’ve been doing in your Neo3D trial..

GoPro (underwater) 3D: Pool

Just started shooting with my new GoPro 3D rig. In between editing a music video I just shot for my friends Rottweiler The Best I had some fun in the pool the last few days in Florida. Thanks to this really great tutorial on 3D video workflow I found by Dave Helmly I now know how to throw my GoPro 3D footage into the workflow. The YouTube player can automatically handle 3D footage uploaded in the Side by Side format, giving the user control over how they want to display it. Although it doesn’t look like 3D is currently supported in embed.

Here’s a link to the YouTube Video:

And here’s a flattened Red/Cyan format I uploaded to Vimeo:
