So recently got my GoPro Hero 6 and I’ve run into a interesting issue. If I read the footage with MPC-HC I can see the recordings and hear the sound.When I import the file into Vegas pro 15 and try to preview the videos. The audio is just a bunch of noise/crackling. The video format is the new H.265 format GoPro Hero 6 has for their 4k 60FPS recording. The video is fine except its difficult for the preview window to keep up. it’s just the audio that I can’t live or work with. Did you experience the same and did you find a solution ? What’s the best workflow for importing GoPro Hero 6 H.265 MP4 videos in Vegas Pro 15 anyhow since I’ve installed it? Thx.
