    Unhappy Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 HD hero 2 import/export settings?

    Hi,
    I just started using adobe premiere pro CS 6, and whenever I export my clip, I get a real crappy image quality. What are the best import/export settings for the gopro hero 2? The clip was shot in 1080p HD, btw.
    Thanks!

    You want to use h.264

    Import isn't too much of a problem as cs6 will alert you if your footage is different than the settings you have for your project when you goto place the footage on the timeline

    Plus now with the latest firmware upgrade you can shoot 24p protune

    Protune is totally foreign to me but I have seen enough to give it a try on my next project, the files are going to get really big but the difference is well worth considering depending on your final product...

    There is a great description of it. On YouTube

    OK, thx I found a solution. Turns out, the default YT-setting turns the bitrate down way too much, increasing bitrate seems to have fixed the problem, however YT decreases the bitrate with converting it to their format I have read. Ah well, at least my vid is up in HQ now lol. Will be making a thread over at extreme sports about it!

    If you have the cs6 suite there is a media encoder with a YouTube setting that works well

    Is it the H.264 setting, with the youtube 1080p preset? Because that didn't seem to work for me... Or I must've done something very wrong

    The YouTube preset is just h.264 tweaked for YouTube as far as I know

    I use CS5, I dont really know what is the correct import sequence settings to use for GoPRO editing. seems like everyone uses different settings. I'll three different ones depending on how I feel (lol) Digital SLR, HDV, or AVCHD. Again, I do not know which one is correct.

    I always export to youtube using h.264. It's what youtube recommends. the file format would end up being .mp4

    I'm still experimenting to find the best way to import/export. I really would like to know who GoPRO does their videos. watching their videos on youtube, you can see even at 480p the image quality is great, I dont think youtube has a restriction on bitrate, and that would be the only way to really increase the overall output quality, although your file size gets huge! perhaps someone with more know how on this can chime in.

    youtube seems to be a pain in the butt!! image quality sucks, restrictions on audio files... eh. You get much better quality with VIMEO!!! but they too have restrictions on HD uploads if you have a free account, and they are not smartphone friendly would be a bigger audience if your one of those guys trying to go "VIRAL"

    My most favorite new feature in cs6 is that no matter what project settings you have, when you go to import the file it will warn you if it's off and give you the option to have it automatically fix your project!

    It's a godsend when you get footage from someone who doesn't have a clue what it was shot in/on
