The most advanced GoPro camera to date, the HERO3 HD is smaller, lighter and more powerful than its predecessors. It still shoots stunning Full HD videos and features a rugged waterproof housing, the GoPro Hero3 Black edition is loaded with the power to capture 12MP images with 30 frames per second burst shooting. Plus, it features built-in Wi-Fi so you can control it with a Wi-Fi enabled remote or get a live video preview and playback on your smartphone and tablet when you download the GoPro app. It’s adventure taken to the next level. If you have got one, you may find the recorded file is H.264 MP4. However the H.264 is not a gpd editing

Q: I'd like to buy a GoPro Hero3 and I want to know if my Final Cut Pro 7, Mac OS X (10.6.8) should be compatible?

A: Once you convert the files recorded by the GoPro 3 to a format that works natively in FCP you shouldn't have any problems in importing GoPro Hero3 H.264 MP4 to FCP 7.


First, please launch the best GoPro HD H.264 to FCP Converter and then click the adding button to import your files.

Tip: The program has the FCP defaulted profile, you can choose Apple ProRes 422 (HQ), ProRes 422, ProRes 422 (LT), ProRes (Proxy), ProRes 444 codecs as you need.

STEP 2: Click the Format box to select the output format from "Final Cut Pro" menu. It depends on what you attach importance to. Here we recommend the Apple PreRes 422(HQ) if you give the priority to the quality of the converted videos.

STEP 3: If you shot 1080p films with your GoPro Hero3, you’d better set the video frame rate as 30fps, video size as 1920*1080 to keep the best quality for editing in Final Cut Pro 7.

STEP 4: Start to convert H.264 .mp4 footages to ProRes via hitting the Convert button.

When the 1080p MP4 to ProRes conversion is 100% completed, you can get the resulted MP4 video via hitting on Open button. Moment later, you can smoothly transfer the converted video to FCP 7 with easy editing.
