I'm working on a project that has footage from gopro hd hero2 (mp4 1080p 25fps).
When I scrub or play the gopro footage after a short while premiere hangs in a wierd way. The CTL moves, I can do edits (trims cut and pastes) but I have no preview and the timecode doesn't move anymore. after that the program usually becomes "not responding".
I tried converting some of the footage to AVI with UT video codec (I wasn't aware of Cineform until now) these videos work better but still get stuck in the end.
is my system to weak to handle this kind of footage? (works fine with 1080p avchd files)
Maybe there's something else I can check?
Any help would be very appreciated, I'm getting tired of the frequent restarts.
PC windows 7 64 bit
6 gig RAM (TOO WEAK?)
footage on Raid 0 array
Premiere pro CS6
Video Card: GeForce 7900 GS 256mb (TOO WEAK?)
When you first import a file and put it on the timeline, is there a red line over the video?
If yes, you do not have a correct project sequence
Please NOTE that the PPro CS6 screen may look a bit different
For CS5 and later, the easy way to insure that your video and your project match

And, some previous gopro discussions
-has link to Premiere Elements discussion inside
-says Cineform WITH GoPro, to convert to other formats
Yellow line is ok.
It means Premiere can play without rendering.
If your machine can't handle the Gopro,
go the the Cineform site and download Cineform Studio.
This program will convert your files to Cineform avi's.
They will edit much easier.
I would expect your system to handle this media just fine. You should not need to convert. Something else is wrong somewhere.
Is this a dedicated production rig, or do you have all sorts of other software installed?
My editing machine is not newest but still works fine with high bitrates GH2 or GH3 footage. However I cant get smooth playback Gopro3 footage in Premiere cs6. Non plays smooth in timelane: raw nor cine conversion even with 1/4 quality. Sequence settings match the fottage, Mercury engine and yelow line. 1080p50 should works its not 2.7 or 4k. Quicktime and other players works fine. Gopro 1 was fine as well. Whats the issue?
I am having exactly the same problem, and have posted over at the cow, but to no avail.
My machine just wont play gopro mp4 cleanly, no matter what the project settings are. It has a yellow line above on the timeline, but stutters and freezes after a second or two. Very annoying, as I have a x820 workstation with E5 processors, 64 gigs ram and a nvidia maximus (quadro 6000 + tesla) setup. I was impressed by the clip on the nvidia website where the guy mixes 9 layers of different HD footage formats in CS6, and does real time color corrections on the fly. Sorry, but that will not work like that on my system, although it has more powerful specs than the workstation in the video.
Anyone has an idea how to tune the software, and/or the workstation so it runs like it was advertised?
Some one over at the cow suggested that it was the read/write speeds on my drives, but I copied a gopro clip over onto my boot drive (SSD) and it made no difference. I can also play AVC-Intra 100 clips without a problem, and they have a much higher bitrate than GoPro H.264 Mpeg 4 clips.
What is my problem here?
Thanks in advance
I think its the codec.
Convert to cineform avi's, much easier to handle.
