Summary: A tutorial shows you how to downscale Panasonic GH4 4K to 1080p for easier playing and editing.
More and more professional 4K cameras come to us and one of the hottest is Panasonic GH4. The most stunning feature of the GH4 is that it can shoot 4K video(in .MP4, .MOV format), capturing either Quad HD (3840 x 2160) or ‘Cinema 4K’ (4096 x 2160). While, there are a few issues when viewing, loading and editing Panasonic GH4 4K in NLE like Adobe Premiere Pro, FCP, iMovie… A better solution to work Panasonic GH4 4K videos is to downscale Panasonic GH4 4K to 1080p. I would like to share some skills for you.
As I mentioned above, the GH4 records 4K videos in MP4, MOV format. Well, according to my testing, the 4K video was restricted to editing in editors. There's actually no way to edit a 4K project in FCP 7/iMovie/Avid natively. In this case, downscale 4K to 1080P is really necessary since 1080p would be the best settings. It will save you both time and trouble, and all you need is to drag the result videos for prompt editing. And it also brings easier 4K playback if you want to view the 4K videos on your TV or other media devices.
