GoPro Studio Advanced settings - Quality converting files

I'm hoping some one can give me a detailed discription of the advanced settings for Quality when converting files. Specifically what is the diffrerence between High, Film Scan1 and Film Scan2.

 

Thank you!

Re: GoPro Studio Advanced settings - Quality converting files

Hi @danielr15

 

These are terms inherited from Cineform, the software GoPro Studio was based on.  Without getting too deep into what each term means, they are describing the kind of file compression used when converting your footage.

 

I believe that Jake Segraves has the best explanation for understanding them.  Here is a link to an article by Jake:   Understanding CineForm Quality Settings

 

I hope this helps clear things up!

 

Cheers!
