Set the Frame Rate Per Second for the Master - SyncBac PRO

Note: This section only applies if you have set your SyncBac PRO to run in GP Master TX mode (see SyncBac PRO has two different Timecode modes: RF Slave and GP Master TX. These modes define how your SyncBac PRO's clock is synchronised with other devices, and so it is important that you choose the appropriate setting.).

Your SyncBac PRO can add accurate time stamps to each frame that is recorded by a GoPro HERO4™ (attached to the SyncBac PRO). To make these time stamps, the SyncBac PRO needs to be set to have a frame rate per second (FPS) that matches the FPS of the HERO4™. But it is not an exact match - the HERO4™ uses FPS values that are rounded up, whereas the SyncBac PRO FPS is very precise and accurate.

  1. Connect your SyncBac PRO to a HERO4™ (if it is not connected already). For further details, see Connect SyncBac PRO to a GoPro HERO4™.

  2. If your SyncBac PRO is currently off, switch it on (see To switch your SyncBac PRO on:).

  3. Press the Select button.

  4. Use the Up and Down buttons to scroll to the Set FPS Rate option.
  5. Press the Select button.

  6. Use the Up and Down buttons to set the SyncBac PRO's FPS to the appropriate value.
