I got a HD Hero for xmas and was mad stoekd to use it, went out got footy, both in r2 and r3 (720p 30fps /720p 60fps respectively)
I broguht it back in and plugged 'er in and put all my footage onto an external HD. After that i imported into Vegas, made sure the project was the same aspects as the footage, and then tryed to edit, my preview box is VERY VERY (let me emphasize more) VERY laggy.
As a test i jsut blindly rendered a full clip and it played back flawlessly on my computer.
MY computer definately has the power to edit HD as i have been editing from my HV30 for a year now with absolutely no problems.
Im asking here on NS because the answeres ive found on google make no sense to me, ( im a bit new to the whole video editing "language")
MAD +K to anyone who helps me, or atleast trys to.
I am in the exact same situation right now.I can edit hv30 footage easy, but the gopro is choppy.
Right now I have been just doing the shift+b trick to watch it, but it's not very good when you got a 20+second clip to watch.
That's just a part of sony Vegas . Since the gopro records in mp4 it's just super slow. I usually render all my gopro footage into an AVI before I start editing or render a little bit through editing. And don't worry , when you render your final copy it won't be laggy . Hope that helped

The emporer of china gave me an offer that i just couldnt understand
I had the same problem with vegas platinum 9 awhile ago with a go pro hd, recently i got a t2i and had the problem again and found this to convert the files to many differnt types, making them play smoother in sony vegas, hope this helps
