GoPro HERO4 now has ability to capture 4K at 30 fps (4K30), allows you to move beyond HD when recording POV style footage either wearing the camera or mounting it in a number of creative ways. As the old version, GoPro HD Hero4 records video in H.264 codec, .mp4 file format. 

However, there are some problems such as not showing the video but audio only, unsupported file type when playing & editing GoPro Hero4 video in Davinci Resolve, especially in 4K. So, how to work with GoPro Hero4 4k video to Davinci Resolve beautifully?

Well, according to our multiple testing, we found two main basic reasons behind there. The Gopro Hero 4 recorded 4K MP4 videos is a compressed output format, but not ideal for editing in NLE system. What’ more, Davinci Resolve 12, 11 can handle (usually) 4K files without much problem, but it is extremely hardware intensive. The easy workaround to edit GoPro 4K MP4 videos in Davinci Resolve is to convert the 4K MP4 to a more editing-friendly format for Davinci Resolve. If you're a professional users, you must know that the most suitable format is MOV which is encoded by DNxHD codec. Therefore, a Mac 4K to DNxHD Converter can be a good assistant.

To change GoPro Hero4 4K MP4 files, you can adopt Pavtube HD Video Converter for Mac to get help. With this Gopro video converter, you can effortlessly transcode Gopro Hero4 4K MP4 to DNxHD encoded MOV, which will creat a Davinci Resolve friendly file format keeping the Gopro original quality. Besides DaVinci Resolve, this software can also export DNxHD for AvidApple ProRes for Final Cut Pro, Apple InterMediate Codec for iMovie, MPEG-2 for Adobe Premiere and more NLE systems for native editing. Windows uers can turn to the Windows version here.

Free download and have a try, it is 100% clean and safe:


GoPro Hero4 and Davinci Resolve workflow - how to convert GoPro Hero4 4K MP4 to Davinci Resolve editable format?

Download and install Pavtube HD Video Converter on your Mac (compatible Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan, 10.10 Yosemite, 10.9 Mavericks, 10.8 Mountain Lion, 10.7 Lion, 10.6 Snow Leopard, 10.5 Leopard and lower versions). Run this program immediately.

Step 1: Load GoPro Hero4 4K .mp4 videos

Launch the Pavtube HD Video Converter for Mac, and you may either click “Add video” button to import 4k .mp4 files, or directly drag and drop the files into this program. If you’d like to combine multiple GoPro Hero4 4K files to be a single file, you can tick the check box “Merge into one file”.

Step 2: Select Resolve readable format

Click the “Format” to select output format. Choose “Avid Media Compose > Avid DNxHD(*.mov)” as the output format.

Tip: Before conversion, you can click the “Settings” icon to customize the video/audio settings including the Bitrate of Video and Audio, Video Size, Sample Rate, Frame Rate, Audio Channels, etc.

Step 3: Converting GoPro Hero4 4K MP4 video files to Davinci Resolve

After all the necessary setting have been done, click the “Start conversion” button at the bottom right corner to start transcoding GoPro Hero4 4K MP4 to DNxHD .mov. Finally, launch Davinci Resolve.

In this article, you will learn the best way to import and edit MTS in Final Cut Pro 7 and FCP X without any plugins. 

When you connect your MTS camcorder to the Mac computer, you found the computer recognises your camcorder but FCP cannot. It means FCP will not capture the MTS files directly from your camcorder in this situation. Maybe you want to look for a plugin for FCP, but it is not easy to find a good plugin that works for latest MTS cameras and FCP, since there are many kinds of video codes used by these recording devices. 

Hot Topics: MTS ColumnFCP ColumnPanasonic ColumnSony Columnipad Columnkindle fire HD ColumnCanon Column 

Even if you backup your footages by only copying MTS files to your Mac local drive folder, no other necessary files such as CPI, Final Cut Pro will still not recognize them, either. Even though you drag those MTS files to load into FCP, FCP will take quite a long time to render those MTS files before those MTS files are loaded into FCP. It is a process called “wrap to MOV” which will be very long in waiting. And you know, AVCHD MTS files in 50P or 60P would be in HD quality and quite large in file size, so the rendering process would slow down, hung or crash your Mac OS if your iMac is not powerful enough in configurations. 

All these issues are about MTS in FCP, how to edit MTS files in Final Cut Pro. Here we will just show you the directions to transfer MTS files to Final Cut Pro and to edit AVCHD files in FCP.

If you some DVD discs, do you want to put them into Synology NAS for sharing on media streamers, just read on this article to get solution to stream DVD to NAS.

NAS is just a big file storage really and you may find that just copying the DVD files to Synology NAS directly is a pain to try and play with a media streamer(PS3, WD TV, etc). Then which is the best way to take the DVDs and put the DVD movies on NAS drive for playing on most media streamers…

First, a quick note: we know that there is still a lot of legal ambiguity around ripping content that you have legally purchased. At Audioholics, we believe that you should be able to watch purchased media on your system regardless of whether it's coming from a standalone DVD player or a media center frontend. Actually, it's not as difficult as you imagine. To get DVDs on Synology NAS, you'll need a third-party DVD ripping software.

Most of you are likely familiar with the excellent Handbrake for ripping standard Def DVDs, but it still cannot yet protected DVD discs. The way it can with regular DVDs, so you'll need to add an intermediate step. Pavtube DVDAid is the bee's knees, which can help you fast rip DVD discs to a format playble by NAS while keeping the original quality. (Best DVD Ripping for Windows/Mac)

With it, ripping DVD for Synology NAS is simple as ABC. After downloding, follow the wizard to install and run the program. The mac version is DVDAid for Mac. Then follow the steps below to convert DVD to Synology NAS comaptible formats in a few clicks! How to rip and stream DVD movies via Synology NAS

Step 1: Insert your DVD disc into DVD ROM, Launch the program and click the "Disc" button to import the DVD movies. DVD folder and ISO/IFO files are also supported. You can select subtitles as you want.

Step 2: Click Format and choose MP4 video from Common Video, which can be recognized by Synology NAS well. MKV is also a good choice; as a container format it takes whatever you give it. And then click the Browse button to specify an output folder to save the converted files.

With the right settings you can retain the quality of the original DVD while also saving space. This is particularly helpful when streaming over your network, depending on your network quality. Simply click Settings bar and you can tweak the settings to your satisfaction and even save it as preset.

Step 3: Finally, hit the "Convert" button at the bottom of the main interface to start the conversion. It will automatically convert DVD to Synology NAS compatible video files.

Once the conversion is finished, click "Open" to quickly find the converted movies. Then, Synology NAS will recognize, catalog, play and stream these DVD rips at ease.

For a beginners, The following passages take a brief review of 3 top Blu-ray Rippers: MakeMKV, DVDfab and Pavtube ByteCopy.

Hello, the Blu-ray/DVD Backing up & Ripping Review will show you on how to lossless convert/backup hundreds of Blu-ray/DVD movies to MKV, keep exactly same video and audio quality with original disks, moreover, retain multiple audio tracks and subtitles...

Top 1. Pavtube ByteCopy Review

You might have heard Pavtube ByteCopy - It is absolutely a top choice for those who wanna put Blu-ray/DVD to HD media players like WD TV Live and NMT A-210 for playback. So what can it do for you?

Basically, the ByteCopy is similar to MakeMKV when it cracks and copied Blu-ray Disc and DVD movie to MKV. However, this app does not only everything (selection of forced subtitles is excluded from the "everything" ) MakeMKV does, but also converts/encodes Blu-ray contents. This feature is a lifesaver for HD media players, as not a HDD player plays 100% of Blu-ray features. E.g. When a BD movie is packed into MKV, WD TV Live can not read the Blu-ray subtitles inlaid.

At this moment ByteCopy plays an irreplaceable role- it is the exclusive Blu-ray Ripper that converts Blu-ray .sup subtitle to .sub without hurting video and audio quality. When it trans-codes and shrinks Blu-ray contents, CUDA acceleration is employed by default when possible.
  • Export file format: .mkv
  • Video: H.264/MPEG-4 AVC, VC-1, MPEG pass-through; H.264, Xvid, MPEG, VC-1 encoded
  • Audio: Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, DTS Digital, DTS-HD high-def, DTS-HD MA pass-through; Dolby Digital 5.1, DTS, AAC, MP3 encoded.

  • Requires macOS High Sierra, macOS Sierra, Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan, Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite, 10.9 Mavericks, 10.8 Mountain Lion, 10.7 Lion, 10.6 Snow Leopard
Pavtube ByteCopy rips Blu-ray in 2 ways, lossless copy and lossy conversion. In trial version lossless backup runs 7 times only; for loss conversion, a watermark is put on the screen. A full version is offered at $42. The purchase includes a lifetime license and unlimited upgrades.

Related GuideTop 2. MakeMKV Review

MakeMKV is a nice choice for those who feel like to make lossless copy of their Blu-ray and DVD collections. The software does one thing- converting the video clips from encrypted disc into a set of MKV files, preserving most information but not changing it in any way- and does it well. It is very easy to remove unwanted audio or subtitle tracks and pretty fast to back up a Blu-ray. The copying of Blu-ray Avatar took only 86 minutes. All video streams, audio tracks and subtitles are included in resulting MKV file.

Import source: Blu-ray Disc/folder/ISO, DVD

Export file format: .mkv (with original codecs)

To add- MKV (also known as Matroska) is a container file format, in which there can be many audio, video and subtitles streams, allowing the user to store a complete movie in a single file. Practically this means that it is possible to put entire movie with multiple sound and subtitle tracks, chapters and movie thumbnail into single file.

MakeMKV 1.10.7 for Windows
  • Requires Windows 10, 8, 8.1, 7, Vista and XP, x64.
MakeMKV 1.10.7 for Mac OS X
  • Requires x86 Mac OS X 10.5 or later.
MakeMKV 1.10.7 for Linux

MakeMKV allows for a 30-day trial, and $50 is all you pay for lifetime Blu-ray ripping feature. Its DVD ripping feature always stays free, so let's say thank you to the generous developer of MakeMKV.

Top 3. DVDfab Blu-ray Ripper Review

DVDfab used to stand for an excellent free DVD ripper. Now we know they can do more (and ask for more too). DVDfab Blu-ray Ripper decrypts and rips Blu-ray title to various video files playable on next generation consoles like PS3 and Xbox 360, HD player like WD TV Live, or mobile devices like iPod, iPhone, iPad, etc. Unlike MakeMKV, it exports a lot of video codecs and formats:

Video: MPEG-4, H.264, MP4, MKV, AVI, WMV, M2TS, TS etc.

Audio: MP3, MP4, M4A, WMA, WAV, AAC, AC3, DTS, etc.

So you see the differences here. With MakeMKV you get lossless Blu-ray backup but only in MKV format; while with DVDfab you lose original Blu-ray quality but get much smaller movie clips in desired format. A preferred feature of DVDfab is their "Lighting speed", i.e., multi-core CPUs and NVIDIA CUDA support. By taking advantage of CUDA accelerating, the conversion time is greatly shorted.

Trial and Download

DVDfab Blu-ray Ripper
  • Requires Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8, Windows 10 (32bit and 64bit).
DVDfab Blu-ray Ripper for Mac
  • Requires x86 Mac OS X 10.5 or later.
Everyone can evaluate the trial for 30 days before it stops work. To continue using the software, you can buy a one-year license of DVDfab Blu-ray Ripper at $60 and $105.6 for lifetime license. If you purchase Blu-ray Ripper and DVD Ripper in bundle, it'll be $93.5 for one-year use and $154 for lifetime. Pretty high price, isn't it? Especially when you can get a similar Blu-ray Ripper at much lower price?

Compare: MakeMKV vs. DVDfab vs. Pavtube ByteCopy

MakeMKV and ByteCopy are good for lossless Blu-ray and DVD backup, while DVDfab focuses on Blu-ray trans-coding to portable devices like PS3, Xbox, etc.

Q: Which Blu-ray ripper keeps Blu-ray movie structure (including chapters)?
A: MakeMKV and ByteCopy

Q: Which Blu-ray ripper keeps multiple audio tracks and subtitles?
A: MakeMKV and ByteCopy

Q: What about the ripping speed of the three Blu-ray Rippers?
A: MakeMKV = ByteCopy (lossless copy) > DVDfab

Q: Which en-decodes Blu-ray with NVIDIA's CUDA support (GPU computing)?
A: ByteCopy and DVDfab (Tip: CUDA works only when exporting H.264 encoded videos)

Q: Which does better on Blu-ray hacking/cracking?
A: Not a Blu-ray ripper is able to crack all the Blu-ray Discs as decryption always falls behind encryption. So it's a question of upgrade and tech support. All the three updates their software along with the come up of new BD+ keys. MakeMKV and Pavtube ByteCopy charge free for updates while DVDfab asks you pay extra money for the updates.
