Please help. I can’t edit 4K H.265 footage in my editing software. Is there any software which I can import 4K H.265 MOV and MP4 files from Panasonic Lumix BGH1 to DaVinci Resolve 16 for further editing?
I have an Ausu AiO V161GA with Windows 10 installed. I have updated it to latest version. I have just bought a new Panasonic Lumix BGH1. I can download the photos but I am unable to open 4K MOV and MP4 in DaVinci Resolve 16.
Q: Workflow with Panasonic Lumix BGH1 to DaVinci Resolve
“I’m working on the post of a project filmed with the Lumix BGH1 in 4K, I was told in the beginning that that camera delivers de 4K clips in DNxHD or ProRes, but now I’m told from various sources that it delivers them in a strange format, probably mov, also told that a lot of people have had trouble transcoding those into editable format to edit them. I was wondering if anyone here could give me some advices or heads up about the most optimal workflow to edit those files in DaVinci Resolve.”
In order to edit Lumix BGH1 4K footage in DaVinci Resolve 16, 15, 14, you need to first convert H.265/HEVC to DaVinci Resolve supported formats like H.264 MP4, DNxHD MOV or ProRes MOV.
Here Acrok Video Converter Ultimate, a professional conversion tool, is highly recommended to help you convert camcorder H.265 video files to DaVinci Resolve compatible video formats. Just download it and check out the steps below to convert Lumix BGH1 video files to DaVinci Resolve for smooth editing.
Downloading the App – Acrok Video Converter Ultimate
I did like the software, very easy to use with my all-in-one PC. I own a media company and a lot of the time we get MOV files (which I hate because they are not recognized by any of Blackmagic Design editing software, DaVinci Resolve). The product was reasonably priced and easy to use. I enjoyed the watermarked trial software and that’s what sold me. As a Asus lover and user I appreciate Acrok and would recommend it to my colleagues, the software would be greatly appreciated!
