Editing My GoPro 240fps Clip with Adobe Premiere Pro CS6

I recently bought a sports and action camera, GoPro Hero 7 Black from Amazon. After watching so many videos praising this camera, I just couldn’t help myself, I had to buy it! Now that I have the camera and I am shooting videos with it, can’t tell you how happy I am!

Now, let me get to the point, this article is not about my GoPro hero 7 black. The main focus of this article is about editing the footage produced by the camera. I use Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 to do my video editing stuff, and I was able to edit most of the footage produced by my GoPro.

However, some of the clips I shot using resolution 1080 at 240 fps was quite an issue! I had to spend a lot of time to finally figure out how to edit it. If you are also facing the same issue, consider reading this post!

Handbrake software has been a great help for me, I have been using it to do a lot of stuff for me. It is free to use, if you are serious about video making, do use it!’

HandBrake is a great software to convert clips of higher size to lower size without compromising the quality much. I use it every now and then for the same purpose.


After trying all the other ways possible, I finally zeroed in on HandBrake! It has really been a great free tool to have if you are also using Abobe Premiere Pro cs6 and you want to edit clips of 240 frames per second. Do use it guys, you will love it!
