just digitize the footage in to your edit rig, it will take real time but way faster then USB xfer and no importing into iMovie. You should be able to load clips directly into what ever edit software you are using.


When you load the footage into your editing software don't just load it in as one long piece. Log your files and skip digitizing the crap you know you don't want. Create new files for each chunk you think you're going to want to use and name them appropriately. It also helps to keep the naming consistent in some way so the files line up in an organized fashion in the bin.

"01 Park Lap 1" "02 park lap 2" "03 major wipeout on jump" etc....then when you go to edit it will be much much simpler with all your takes logged and neatly organized in your bin! If you want to get all OCD you can even take notes!




man, I so need to invent some sort of digital slate for go pros!! There probably already is one!
