Re: GoPro Protune

I am a total noob but shot some stuff recently in protune mode. Are there any links were I can find a protune workflow. I edit in Premiere on a PC.

Re: GoPro Protune

For recent versions of PPro, just import and adjust to suit. Since it is a minimally processed file, you'll probably want to tweak with a color corrector and maybe add a bit of sharpening. That might slow you down if you don't have GPU acceleration but if you do have it, no sweat.

Re: GoPro Protune

I rolled mine back until they get the issues worked out Ė it was locking up every time I tried to use it and I had to pull the battery.

Iíve never done post correction before, but while I was tinkering with my protune files I started creating presets of color correction for my clips that put me in the ballpark at least with them. Procamp was useful for one example.

Thanks Pete, I am good to go on acceleration and I am running CS6. The trick will be how well I can color correct under water footage.

Re: GoPro Protune

A firmware update for HD2 is being developed, GoPro have submitted 100 case studies to their FW Engineers to help pin point the issue. No date has been set for release yet.

Re: GoPro Protune

Thats great news Ian. Yesterday for the first time I suffered multiple freezes that even removing the battery would not always correct. And since I had the H2 with a wifi back and in a case and in a high hard to access place it was even more frustrating. Finally I had to give up and just rely on my other cams but at the last minute I retried shooting using the new App via my Galaxy S3 (which had also frozen up) and it started recording. I had left the H2 / Galaxy combo untouched for around 20 minutes before retrying. Maybe that is another workaround to the freezing problem if time allows. The settings were latest firmware + Protune 1080 25T.

Re: GoPro Protune

I think the update to the update is out now? I updated mine again night before last and it seems solid. I took it out to try to get some video of the tornado damage here and it worked pretty flawlessly. Didnít have to pull the battery out once!

So, back to the drawing board for a nice preset to apply to these Protune files. The higher bitrate video looks noticeably better. If I could just get a ballpark preset worked up.
