dodge1080-60, protune on auto WB
gives you the ability to slow down to 50% with crispy crisp footage. get close - way closer than you think is close. closer than that.
xnick11Protune is GoPro's "Flat" picture style. If you are new to video editing I would leave protune off. If you think you are advanced and can adjust exposure and bring the color back out in your images, then leave it on. Also, don't set your white balance to auto unless you have a scene where you are going from daylight to tungsten lighting. To my knowledge the GoPro only allows you three options for various white balance settings. They are listed on the kelvin scale as 3000k, 5500k, and 6500k.
3000k should be used when indoors, and for night scenery. 5500k is used for outside or direct sunlight. 6500k is best during overcast lighting.
I've provided the white balancing information from GoPro's website at the link below.
There are plenty of tutorials out there on YouTube that will teach you the in's and out's of the GoPro. Go search for them! Hope this helps!
Swandog7Does the white adjusting work on hero 3 or just 4? Yah Ive read about protein and its better for advanced editors.
xnick11Swandog, by doing a quick google search you will find out that both the Hero 3 and Hero 4 have these white balance setting options.

Swandog7oh, I clicked your link and the go pro website just mentioned the hero 4 and not 3. Thanks
gavinrudyThis is not the case. Protune can be used to enable the flat picture style, but that's a relatively small subsetting of the feature. The primary advantage to Protune is being able to record at higher bitrates, or to shoot and record larger amounts of data per second, increasing the quality of the video to make it more workable while editing. The two are very different and using a flat picture style does not necessarily mean that the video will be higher quality and more editable.
