Set the FPS 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 Set the Timecode Mode).

Your SyncBac PRO can add accurate time stamps to each frame that is recorded by a GoPro HERO camera (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 HERO camera. But it is not an exact match - the HERO camera uses FPS values that are rounded up, whereas the SyncBac PRO FPS is very precise and accurate.

  1. Connect your SyncBac PRO to your GoPro HERO. For details, see Connect SyncBac PRO to a GoPro HERO4 or Connect SyncBac PRO to a GoPro HERO6.
  1. Switch on your SyncBac PRO (see Switch SyncBac PRO On and Off).

  2. Press the Select button.

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

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