GoPro Hero 4, as a popular action camera, has supported for recording 4K videos. After every adventure, you may want to edit GoPro Hero 4 4K videos in some NLE applications like Avid Media Composer to make them look better. However, after reading the feedback which is from some GoPro Hero 4 users, we know about some problems may happen to the process of editing GoPro Hero 4 videos in Avid Media Composer, such as some glitches come out from the screen.
The reason why glitches come out from the screen may be the resolution of your computer is lower than 4K(4096 x 2160). It means the GPU of your computer doesn’t have the ability to support for editing GoPro Hero 4 4K videos in Avid Media Composer. In order that you can make GoPro Hero 4 videos editable in Avid Media Composer, I want to offer a good suggestion to you – downgrade GoPro Hero 4 4K videos to 1080P(1920 x 1080) and transcode the 4K videos to Avid DNxHD codec which is the most suitable codec for Avid Media Composer.
