“I have encountered some tricky issues when importing some amazing 4K footage recorded from a Panasonic camera, they play choppy and really slow, sometimes Davinci Resolve even couldn’t recognize them, let alone for editing. I’m seeking for the solution to the 4K footage to Davinci Resolve importing & editing issues. Any suggestion is appreciated!”

In recent two years, there are many guys made the switch to shooting and editing videos in 4K, which is a new resolution standard designed for digital cinema and computer graphics. Compared with common 1080p or 720p videos, it offers higher image definition quality, more detailed picture, better fast-action and larger projection surface visibility. Lots of 4K products such as 4K camcorders(DJI Phantom 3/4 or 4 Pro, Canon XC15, Canon C300 Mark II, Samsung 4K HEVC/H.265, Blackmagic 4K, Panasonic GH5/GH4, Sony a6500, Sony FDR AX1/AX100, JVC HM-200, …), 4K TVs, 4K movies are springing up. However, format compatibility issue is quite common in the video world, which is also true to the stunning 4K. In this article, we will talk about the 4K video and Adobe Premiere Pro compatibility. If you’re planning to import 4K video to Adobe Premiere Pro (no matter Premiere Pro CC, CS6, CS5.5, CS5 or CS4) for editing, read on to find something you need.

Actually, the 4K video was restricted to edit in Adobe Premiere Pro. Only the latest version Adobe After Effects CC can natively support 4K video like Sony’s XAVC. The previous version Adobe Premiere Pro CS4/CS5/CS6/CC has not yet been updated for 4K support. What’s more, due to the format limit, we can’t edit all kinds of 4K video files like 4K MP4, 4K MOV, 4K MXF, 4K MKV, 4K AVI, 4K WMV, HEVC/H.265 etc in Adobe Premiere Pro flawlessly. How to solve the issues? As mentioned above, we need to encode 4K stuff (formatted/encoded in XAVC, XAVC S, MP4, MOV, MXF etc.) to Adobe Premiere Pro compatible video and even downscale 4K to 1080p if necessary. What you need is a 4K video converter application.
