    GoPro HERO4 Black - Editing 4K on Premiere Pro CC 2014.0.1

    photorobot2010

      Hello, I'm new to the GoPro and we recently purchased a HERO4 Black.  I'm editing with Premiere Pro CC 2014.0.1 on a MacBook Pro, specs below:

       

      2.8 GHz Intel Core i7

      16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3

      Graphics NVIDIA GeFore GT 750M 2048MB

      OS X 10.9.4 (13E28)

       

      I have no issues playing back a 5K RED R3D file or a 4K mov file from a GH4 but I'm getting choppy playback in a Premiere Pro timeline from the GoPro's MP4's even at 1080 Superview.  Was wondering if there is something I need to be able to edit the native MP4 files or do I need to just transcode the files from the GoPro to ProRes to be able to work with them in Premiere Pro CC

       

      Any ideas, help and/or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  I have a beefy desktop PC at home with roughly the same specs and I'd like to test the footage there but the MacBook Pro and CC 2014 is my work setup and would like to figure this out for the work setup if at all possible.

       

      Thank you,
