Hey guys,

I recently purchased a GoPro Hero 6 Black, and I've been having some trouble with it. I was hoping someone here may have the answer to my problems.

I recorded some footage in 1080p @ 240 fps, and it plays back fine on the GoPro but when I attempt to view it on my PC I'm having problems. I'm attempting to import it into either Vegas or After Effects at 240 fps so I can slow some parts way down. But I'm having problems importing the files, or even playing them. Even when I try to play it in VLC its choppy. My graphics card (GTX1080) isn't the problem. I understand the GoPro uses some new H265 (HEVC) codec that might not be compatible? Anyone have any idea what I can do to get my footage into an editing software while maintaining 240 fps and the video quality?

Go into Sony Vegas doesn't matter what version you have and click on Preview Quality. Sometimes I can preview it under as Best so I have to lower the quality ratio down to Auto so then it doesn't get choppy when editing or playing the video. Reply back if that's not the case and I'll look into it further.

I know about the preview quality, my PC has no problem running footage on Best. The problem is I can't even import the file into Vegas. Vegas just gives me an error message. I can get the files into AE, but the video is only black. I'm thinking it has to do with the codec.
