Hello all, would first like to say thanks for accepting me to this group!
I recently went on a trip with my girlfriend driving in our camper to Portugal I bought a gopro just for this and basically without realising how HUUUGE 4k files are I ended up with almost 1TB of footage! yes i know!!!
I had no idea how big it was because i was just blindly uploading it to my computer each night.
anyway now all this footage is useless to me, i wanted to make a long video with it but when i go to convert the videos on goprostudiobut it says i do not have enough space. I then tried on final cut pro to edit but the files are just too bulky, i cant use proxy files because of lack of space.
I tried to convert the files to something less bulky but they come out looking awful, i tried to do this on 4k video converter for mac.
I am using a 2011 macbook pro with 16gb of Ram and 1tb SSD drive, I have a 4tb external HDD drive too.
Can anyone suggest the best course of action to get these into editing software!?
I would really appreciate any help I am absolutely gutted about it as I got some really nice footage to use!
