How to correct problems with GoPro Hero 7 4K H.265 Files in DaVinci Resolve 16? It seems many people have problems with H.265 files from GoPro Hero 7. I’ve seen playback and crashing issues several times with other customers, as well as experiencing them myself. These files just need to be handled a bit differently than most video files.
Here is a way to correct the issue:
Transcode the GoPro Hero 7 footage to a different codec using a program or app, like Acrok Video Converter Ultimate, HandBrake or Media Encoder. The container can still be MP4, or it can be MOV. I usually render a lossless MOV file, keep the original, and delete the lossless file when I’m done. But that can consume a lot of space very fast. If you’re short on drive space, try using ProRes422 on a Mac, or use DNxHD on Windows.
Trouble editing or playing video because of compatibility issues? Your troubles are over. Acrok Video Converter Ultimate offers the easiest way to transcode video/audio files among MP4, AVI, WMV, MKV, XAVC, XAVC S, H.265/HEVC, MXF, MTS, M2TS, TiVo, MOV, FLV, 3GP, VOB to fit various multimedia devices or to edit with DaVinci Resolve 16, iMovie, Final Cut Pro X/7/6, Avid Media Composer, Premiere Pro CC, and more with fast encoding speed and excellent video quality. You can free download and try this best H.265 to DaVinci Resolve Converter here.
Finally, (and this should always be normal practice with DaVinci Resolve) do not drag and drop the files into DaVinci Resolve 16; use the Media Browser to import your files. Most of the time, dragging and dropping files works just fine, but there are times when it doesn’t transfer necessary information with the video file. Media Browser always ensures everything the file needs is included.
Although this is a time-consuming process, transcoding saves me a lot of time and trouble while I’m editing, so I think it evens out.
