Re: Gopro Hero 6 240 FPS / Can't open files

The older Intel CPU's and Nvidia GPU's don't have h.265 built in. I have a workstation at work that has a Xeon e5-1620

v4, 16gb ram and a Quadro K1200. They didn't buy this for encoding, but for Creo 4. It handles h.265, but it very

slow/sliggish with high CPU usage. These specs are about a 1.5 years old, from when they launched. My System at home

is a Asus Rampage V 10 Edition, I7-6950x @4.0Ghz, 64 GB ram,  2 Nvidia 1080 Founders editions and it handles h.265

great even though the cpu doesn't have it built in either, so i attribute the performance to the GTX 1080. My point, is buying

a newer graphics card will probably help you, and be cheaper than replacing everything.

 

btw...Premiere Pro will only use one GPU when rendering per Nvidia's control panel setting.

Re: Gopro Hero 6 240 FPS / Can't open files

I dont think i bought H6, to buy a PC worth 2000 alongside just because i wanna use 240fps...this needs to be fixed to be able to use gopro as it is for all users..PRO, ADVANCED and NOVICE

Re: Gopro Hero 6 240 FPS / Can't open files

HEVC is going to be the new standard going forward, and it's the chicken or the egg analogy. I guess I don't know if

they could use .264 in those modes, maybe they have internal bandwidth issues to deal with, I don't know. But they're

not trying to piss you off. I remember hearing all this stuff when .264 came out.

Re: Gopro Hero 6 240 FPS / Can't open files

Is it possible to convert 240fps HVEC to H264 with HandBrake for easier editing?

In addition, it's not about having a £2000 pc or not, it's about having the latest software to support it. My samung galaxy s8 happily plays back all the files from the Hero6 without issue.

I am attempting to post a reply here but it keeps getting deleted. It's the answer you're looking for so no idea why this is happening. Is there a mod doing this? seems ridiculous.

Abosolutely, my Note 8 does as well. The timing of .265 hardware/software may be a little off, but the hardware is coming for sure.
