CS5- Can’t import GoPro clips, causes Premiere Pro CS5 to crash…

Hi everyone, I’m running out of ways to try and fix this…


I have an interesting problem involving importing .mp4 clips from my GoPro HD Hero 2. I’ve finally been able to identify the problem but I have no idea how to handle it.

Before now I would always just import the raw .mp4 clips that were worth anything and crop/edit them in Premiere pro, but this time I decided to use GoPro’s free Cineform Studio Software to quickly crop and add a preset color tune to a large chunk of my clips at once.


That worked great up until now.


This worked wonderfully since it allowed me crop a whole lot less in Premire Pro, but now anything that was processed through cineform just causes Premiere to crash upon attempting to import.  Raw .mp4 files still work fine but I’d rather not start again from scratch as I’ve processed a lot of clips through Cineform.  So I’m really hoping to find a workaround.


Any ideas? Sorry, I’m pretty new to video editing.

Additional information if it helps:


-Samsung Series 7 Chronos

  • i7 2.3GHz
  • 8 GB Ram
  • NVIDIA optimus
  • Windows 7


-CS5 (5.0.3) just updated


Here’s a series of screen grabs showing what I do and how it crashes. (Note: I’ve tried File-Import as well, and with single files, no luck.)
