GoPro Hero cameras are compact, lightweight, and wearable on different vehicles. The GoPro HD cameras like Hero2, Hero3, Hero4, etc. are familiar with everyone whoever has passion for sports and other outdoor activities. A GoPro Hero camera produces HD H.264 MPEG-4 (*.mp4) videos, and can be played on computer well. As we all know, most of the editing software support MP4, and then why GoPro MP4 files cannot be edited in DaVinci Resolve?
“When I import the GoPro MP4 video into DaVinci Resolve, it looks blurry and pixely. However, when I view the same video out of the folder that it resides in, the video looks amazing. I’m assuming I’m doing something wrong during the import process. Any suggestions?”
As an extremely powerful editor in the post production workflow, DaVinci Resolve is well known for its color correction ability as well as a great manager of your entire creative process. It is claimed that DaVinci Resolve works with a wide variety of file formats in real time including DPX, CIN, EXR, Tiff, QuickTime, ProRes, DNxHD and MXF files. While importing the unsupported MP4 to DaVinci Resolve is such a pain. May be we need a video assistant to get more help.
Searching the web, I got some hints. What I can do with the current project is take the GoPro MP4 I have and convert it for use with DaVinci Resolve. And what I need is a great MP4 converter. After multiple testing, I found Pavtube HD Video Converter for Mac (review) is the best option for me. It is able to convert GoPro MP4 to DaVinci Resolve friendly format DNxHD MOV easily with the best video quality. Besides MP4, this video convert program can also help to convert between any popular video and audio formats as you need.
