Import Gopro footage into Elements 15

Postby Charlie Golf » Fri Sep 29, 2017 8:50 am

I'm new to the world of video editing and recently bought Elements 15 which has led me to watching Steve's tutorials.

Can anyone explain why the yellow/orange render line appears above the clip whenever I add Gopro footage to the timeline. I've tried changing the project settings, however having no luck. The footage has been filmed in either 2.7 or 4k.

Any advice would be appreciated..

Your project settings do not match the footage settings. You will need to press the enter bar so your system can render the footage to playback.

Yellow means that the footage and project settings match. Orange means that they do not match.

If you mix and match 2.7k and 4k you will need to decide which project setting you prefer 2.7k or 4k. If you choose 2.7k project setting then the 4k will be orange. If you choose 4k then the 2.7k will be orange.

Thanks for your response Sidd. Couple more questions to get my head around things -

- What does the orange line signify? I've noticed a green line as well?

- Will the mixing of different footage i.e. 2.7k and 4k cause any problems to the final video?

Appreciate your help.

Orange line means that section of the timeline should be rendered before it will play smoothly. The green line means that the section of the timeline has already been rendered or does not require rendering.
