    Hi Folks,

    Not sure if this is the right place to ask this but here goes. I had someone tell me that for the best slow motion results to use the 720/120 setting on my Gopro. I guess the higher frame rates (120) would be better right? Problem is when I import into the Final Cut Pro it won't recognize anything more than 60 fps. I even exported to Quicktime via MPEG Streamclip but it still said 60 fps was the highest rate. Does this make sense? If that's correct then why record at 120?

    Thanks in advance!

    I don't have any experience with 120, but the thought occurred to me to run the clip through GoPro editing software just to output a 30fps video, then use that output as your input to a nle app......?????
