HERO8 - Blender Video Editing

Hey everybody!  I'm not sure where to start.  I'm trying to edit some of my raw gopro footage into an edit.  I've recently downloaded Blender and have been trying to learn the ropes on the program but whenever I put clips into the sequencer it is incredibly choppy.  I'm just wondering if anyone has had the same issues and figured them out? Does anyone know of a good online resource(s) that might correct something I'm doing wrong? 


I'm specifically wondering if I need to convert the video files that I have downloaded from the hero8 to a different file, but honestly I don't even know where to start with that subject either.  If any guidance or resources that you know of could be provided, I'd greatly appreciate it.  Thanks!
