Gopro Codec For FCP X-How to Edit GoPro Hero3 Black MP4 in Final Cut Pro

Source From:http://portable-device-conversion.com/gopro-hero3-black-fcp-tutorials-importing-gopro-hero-3-black-video-to-fcp-x/

Capturing a video 'of a car by the car' and capturing a video 'of a car from a car' are two very different things. For capturing a lap of a vehicle around a track from the outside of the vehicle, any good video recording device should suffice. However, the same cannot be said about a camera that needs to perform the same task from within the vehicle itself. For such a camera to be able to function in such a condition many restrictions come in place with regards to its size, its weight, its durability etc of that particular device. One such device that fits the bill for such a job is the GoPro Hero3 Black Edition.

GoPro Hero 3 Black Specs
? Field of View: 170° or 120°
? Storage: Up to 64GB microSD
? Frame Rates: 4K (16:9 and 17:9) @ 12, 12.5, 15fps; 2.7K (16:9 and 17:9) @ 30, 25, 24fps; 1440p (4:3) @ 48, 30, 25, 24fps; 1080p (16:9) @ 60, 50, 48, 25, 24fps; 960p (16:9) @ 100, 48fps; 720p (16:9) @ 120, 100, 60, 50fps; WVGA (16:9) @ 240fps

The GoPro HD records in MPEG-4 and outputs its files as .MP4 files (the container). Files are compressed using the h.264 codec. Since the MP4 codec is a final delivery codec it is not one you want to use for editing. So, for Final Cut Pro users, a third-party software for converting GoPro MP4 to a more editing-friendly format, such a Final Cut Pro's ProRes is needed.



Here Brorsoft Video Converter for Mac is highly recommended. It's a professional and powerful high-quality Mac video converter and editor. With it, you can effortlessly transcode GoPro HD MP4 files to ProRes 422 encoded MOV for Final Cut Pro. Meanwhile, the Mac Video Conversion tool can create files compatible with various non-linear editing systems like Avid, FCE, FCP X, iMovie, and Adobe Premiere (Pro) etc. Just download it and follow the tutorials below to transfer and import GoPro HD footage to for smoothly editing in Final Cut Pro.

Guide: Transcoding GoPro HD Hero 3 MP4 to ProRes 422 codec for Final Cut Pro

Step 1. Download, install and run the Mac HD Video Converter, click "Add" or "Add From Folder" to load your GoPro HD footage.



Step 2. Click the format bar, and move mouse cursor to "Final Cut Pro > Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov)" as output format.

Some more helpful features of the app:

1. Settings- click to set video resolution(1920×1080/1440×1080/1280×720/720×480), bitrate(from 1Mbps to 20Mbps), frame rate (24p/30p)

2. Editor (next to "Add" icon)- click to set deinterlace, denoise, mute, volume up, trim, crop, etc.

Step 3. Click "Convert" button to start GoPro MP4 to ProRes 422 MOV conversion.

As soon as the encoding process finished, you can get the final output Apple ProRes files via clicking "Open" button effortlessly. The transcoded files now are ready for editing in Final Cut Pro (X).

Launch FCP X, choose File > Import > Files…, and browse to where you save the converted MPG files to. Choose the videos that you'd like to add for editing.

Samsung Galaxy S5 DVD Player-How to rip my dvds to mp4 to play on Galaxy S5

Summary:DVD is a great way to watch movies on your HDTV at home, if you have lots of DVDs and wants to play it not only on your computer and DVD player, but other devices such as Samsung Galaxy S5 2014 you can use Brorsoft DVD Converter Pro to convert DVD movies to MP4 format within 3 simple steps.

Samsung Galaxy S5 is quite an interesting update, and as you can see, it is not about an increase in processing or graphics speed. Instead the focus has been put on more practical things like battery life, and my personal favorite: survivability of the phone.

And this is not unexpected. Since the underlying chips that power these devices have not become significantly faster during this cycle, there is not much that Samsung can do about that, so this is a great time to reinforce the essentials that users really care about.

In the past, many have said that Samsung should focus exactly on this instead of introducing new features that were perceived as “gimmicks”. Well, it seems like Samsung has listened: ultra-fast auto-focus, better battery life, and water-resistance are definitely not gimmicks, I think that most people can agree on that. What’s your take?

Specifications Highlight of Galaxy S5
*5.1” Super-AMOLED 1080p display
*Android 4.4
*Snapdragon 801, 2.5GHz with 2GB of RAM
*16 Megapixel Rear Camera, 2.1 Megapixel Front Camera
*16/32 GB of internal storage + microSD (128GB max!)
*LTE Category 4
*USB 3.0
*IP67 dust and water resistance
*2800mAh battery

However, it doesn’t have a built-in DVD-ROM or DVD player for the playback of DVD movies. If you want to watch DVD on Samsung Galaxy S5, you will need a tool to convert DVD to Samsung Galaxy S5 playable video files first.

You may be confused about choosing a suitable tool. If so, I recommend you try Brorsoft DVD Ripper. The DVD to Galaxy S5 converter is easy to use for editing and conversion and makes great quality copies of my DVDs(ISO/IFO, DVD Folder). With it, you can effortlessly make your DVD videos playable on Samsung Galaxy S5 in just a few mouse clicks. In addition, this DVD Ripper can also rip DVD to AVI, FLV, MKV, MOV, OGG, FLAC, WAV, etc. for playing and sharing anywhere.
