HEVC/H.265 import issues in Adobe PP.

Recommended Posts

I recently got the GoPro Hero 7 Black to though their trade up offer (turned in an 8 year old Sony cybershot... that was broken for $100 off). The images and stabilization so far are sooo much better then my Hero 3+ I didn't get it for my explores but it's good enough I'll use it for a number of things. 

Anyways in higher resolutions, frame rates, 4:3, combinations etc the Hero 7 video files are in HEVC/H.265. These are not importing into Adobe PP CC correctly. I'm just getting the audio to show up. I can convert to H.264 using handbrake but I don't want to do this. Is anybody else filming any of their footage in H.265 format and using Adobe? Any film or editing forums, etc that others recommend or participate in?

I also did have an issue with artifacting on the exported video but I changed so settings and seem to of resolved it. Looking back I had this problem on some of my other videos but only really noticed it with the Hero 7 footage because the difference was so drastic.

I have no experience with gopro files on pp. I hope you can find the solution.

Everything I shoot is AVC, nothing I have shoots HEVC. Sounds like HEVC is the future, but I am stuck in AVC land.  😐

Yeah I'm good with most the stuff I want to do now is 2.7K 60fps, which is not put into HEVC. But I know I'm going to want higher frames or res on smaller clips I'd like to slow down more or zoom into things with 4k at some point. Will be something I need to figure out. The frustrating thing about adobe is I'm not sure if this is some dumb bug or if I'm doing something wrong.

Adobe has been so frustrating for me, I have been using it for years and it seems I spend more time dealing with their bugs than editing video. I have considered many times switching to Davinci Resolve, but I don't want to relearn a new program.

I picked up resolve a lot quicker than I ever did with Adobe. Only thing is, resolve relies on the graphics card way way more for everything. End up having to render "optimized" footage to get smooth 4k playback while editing.

Just a few questions, when you are dropping your files into pp are you dropping only your go pro footage in or do you put other clips into your sequence first? Then, are you having this issue with your playback in pp or is it an issue with an exported video? What kind of processor are you running?

I believe I tried both ways. I'll try again later to check. I know I tried with other clips in the timeline already and I think I tried later alone with the same result. It is an issue with getting to view it in PP playback. When opened in source window or dropped into timeline it appears as a green audio only. My laptop has an intel i5.

Hmm. Perhaps it doesn't recognize the file type? is it a .mov .mp4 or something common like that? Found this on the internet. I dont know if it is the same as your situation but it may give you a few new ideas. https://youtu.be/pc9XKejA5zo

You might want to try installing the k-lite codec pack: https://www.codecguide.com/download_k-lite_codec_pack_mega.htm
Install the Mega version.  I've found that improves odds of importing various video formats into PP. 

For editing purposes I often use ffmpeg to re-encode into a format that PP can use, it can take a lot of HD space.

    • This is the location of the famous Mojave Phone Booth. Unfortunately not much is left today, but it's still a cool location to visit with an interesting history.

      South Pass City, approximately 90 miles north of Rock Springs, is a historic site administered by the state of Wyoming.  It consists of over 30 log, frame, and stone buildings, along with the Carissa Mine and Stamp Mill.

    • Surprise Canyon, California
      Recently, I’ve been going through my old VHS video tapes and digitizing them to DVDs.  These tapes contain my travels and explorations between 1995 and 2009.  I thought I’d start releasing some video shorts of my early travels on this forum.

      The back story for this particular video is as follows.  On March 30, 1996, I made a short hike of about a mile and a third up the lower third of Surprise Canyon, on the western slopes of the Panamint Range, Inyo County, California.  This canyon is just outside of Death Valley National Park.  This canyon has running water running year round through the stretch shown, fed by substantial Limekiln Springs, and the canyon is a water wonderland.  For those not familiar with the area, refer to the two maps.  The first one shows the canyon in relation to the region, the other a close up of the canyon and the ghost town of Panamint City.  The blue line in the close up image shows the route that was taken.

    • Exploration Field Trips - March 31-April 2, 2000 - Into the Nevada Triangle with Lew Shorb
      My next series of videos will be based on a trip in 2000 that I took with Lew Shorb.  Lew is a board member here, as well as owner of the popular website http://www.ghosttownexplorers.org/ghost.htm

      In breaking with my past habit of culling out historical sites and ghost towns and creating short videos dealing with these, I decided to keep the exploring part of Explore Forums in and create videos of each day of my travel and exploration, including our camps.  Scenery, travel, camping ghost towns and wide open spaces.

      Part one of this series, as well as subsequent videos, will all appear here within this same thread. Part I will start in my garage, where I was finishing up with the packing my truck.  The following day, after work, I begin my travels to meet Lew Shorb at Rhyolite, Nevada ghost town.

      Our three day, two night travels prowled about the "Nevada Triangle" section of northeastern Death Valley National Park; and will include such sites as:

      1. The Las Vegas & Tonopah Railroad
      2. Gold Bar
      3. Phinney Mine
      4. Strozzi Ranch
      5. Currie Well (LV&T RR)
      6. Mud Springs Summit (LV&T RR)
      7. Happy Hooligan Mine


      This video, that of March 30th and 31st, will start off this series; and is brief, only being 3:28 long.  Nevada-Triangle_Shorb-2000_Part-1.wmv

      So, below is my narrative of part one of this series to give full context of what is seen in the video.  It will probably take longer to read than the video is long.

    • Exploration Field Trips: May 1-3, 2000 - Trip with Alan Patera and Alan Hensher into Death Valley
      Exploration Field Trips:
      May 1-3, 2000
      Trip with Alan Patera and Alan Hensher into Death Valley

      What do you do with three authors, two 4x4’s, two two-way radios, three cameras, and camping supplies? Send them to Death Valley, of course. For three days in the first week of May, 2000, fellow authors and historical researchers Alan Patera, Alan Hensher and myself explored Death Valley north and south.

      Alan Patera writes and publishes the WESTERN PLACES series of monograph books.  Alan Hensher has been published in several periodicals as well as authoring several books, centering primarily on the history of Mojave Desert sites.

      Alan Patera, who hails from Oregon, came south to California and picked up Alan Hensher; then the two came my way. At the time I was living in Ridgecrest, California. After overnighting with my wife and I, the three of us took off for Death Valley.  Alan was busy researching and photographing for a future edition of WESTERN PLACES, this time centering on the camps of the Funeral Range, which forms the eastern border of east central Death Valley.  Circumstances and changes of our journey lead Alan to plant the seeds of two more future books, this time centering just outside the northernmost section of Death Valley.
