I'm a complete newbie so excuse me if this is a dumb question. I'm thinking about buying a GoPro Hero 4 Black as well as Premiere Elements Version 14 to carry out the video editing. Browsing through the internet I believe that previous versions of Premiere Elements could not import the native GoPro format video files (H.264 CODEC I believe) and that third party software had to be used to covert this file format into a format Premiere Elements could recognise.
Could you tell me if it is now possible to import the native GoPro video files directly into Premiere Elements Version 14? Ideally I would want to copy the files from the GoPro sim card onto my computer first and then bring them into Premiere Elements 14 rather than having to connect the GoPro to my computer and import directly from the camera.
Any help and guidance would be very much appreciated.
