    Go Pro cameras HDMI converted to SDI low quality

    I finally got my Go pro cameras through a HDMI to SDI to work on my Tricaster mini. 720/120 frames with the Tricaster mini set to 720/24 SDI. I exported AVI and MP4. The quality is horrible, much worse than my SDI cameras. I have two different converters. It doesn't matter how I export. Am I doing something wrong? It's hard to believe others have this low quality issue and live with it.
    Thanks

    Is your session set to 720p/24? Typically the 720p/120 format on the GoPro would deliver a 720p/59.94 frame rate to the TriCaster.

    Beyond that the quality should be as good as a GoPro can produce. I just had one connected today to a Mini, I got what I expected from a GoPro.

    Humm. Yes that's what I did. I'll try it again and maybe send some screen shots today.
    Thanks

    This is the darnedest thing. I'll keep playing around with the settings but so far I get the same results.

    Have you tried setting the input setting to 59.94p rather than 24p? Typically, that would be the correct format for the GoPro.

    I think I figured it out. The best export is AVI for me. I added more light for the smaller lenses the Go Pros have. The added light made the picture a little more clear. I'll keep testing but I think it's the light.
