any experience on using GOPROHD files and Vegas8?

Hi guys, did you try any Goprohd files onto your Vegas8? Wanted to know cause i've just ordered mine and even if i live in PAL land ans hoots 30 or 60 fps i thought it could be a good choice for action-sports shots.

2nd question: i 'm working on an HDV Pal project, would i consider the option to convert this files in Pal version?If so, how?? :)
thx a lot for taking time to gimme an help

#1. Check out Keith Kolbo's tutorial called Using GO-HD files in Sony Vegas Pro 8

#2. I'm an NTSC user, not PAL so I'll let someone else answer that question.

Ok, just found out there's a bug with Vegas and the other gopro files larger than 2 GB that couldn't be opened on the timeline...
Any ideas how to split a file that big?

thx

It's probably the limit of a 32bit File System. With Win XP/VISTA/7, you can select FAT32 or NTFS as the file system format but only NTFS will give you the unlimited file sizes. With FAT32 you are stuck with the maximum file size allowed by the FAT32 file system.

If you copy files from one file-system to the other, the system will split the files into 2GB or 4GB chunks (depending on the software). Unfortunately, with video, that will mess up the long GOP info. I suspect this is the problem you have. i.e. not a bug with Vegas but a file system limitation. AFAIAA the only solution to that is using the NTFS file system on your HDD(s).

It's for that reason all my external HDDs get re-formatted NTFS also. (They usually come pre-formatted FAT32).

I'm in PAL land, but using SVP 9c. Atm I don't have a lot of footage from my GoProHD, but have been playing with the proxystream plugin or converting to Cineform Neoscene. I will shortly be buying Neoscene.

I post my stuff to Vimeo so the PAL/NTSC problems don't apply

From what I understand, the gopro only records upto 2gb segments. It will split these files automaticly while recording

Marcus, yes, the Proxy Stream script is free (along with several other excellent ones on this site).
p.s. instructions are in a readme file that's a part of the zip file that you download.
