How to edit Lumix BS1H H.265 in Premiere Pro smoothly
“I have a lot of 4K H.265 clips which is converted to ProRes files, for editing in Final Cut Pro X. My backup files are .mov, and I have deleted the native video files. Recently I bought Adobe for editing Lumix BS1H footage in Premiere Pro CC, and I am not going to use FCP X. But it looks like Premiere Pro CC don’t handle my ProRes MOV files very well. It looks like bad streaming, like its something wrong with the frame rate. When I import native Lumix BS1H files everything works perfectly fine. But the problem is all my old files, which is converted to ProRes. I have to find a way I can use them in Premiere Pro CC.”
“I am new to Premiere Pro CC & am still trying to work it all out. The Panasonic Lumix BS1H 5.9K MOV files come up saying that the file type is not supported. Is there a plugin i need for those or do I need to transcode outside of Premiere Pro CC to be able to import them?”
“I am running windows 10 & Premiere Pro CC 2020. When I drop Panasonic DC-BS1H recordings in it comes up as a blank screen, however the audio is playing when i try to play back the files but no video file is playing. Is there a setting that i need to check or is this an issue with Premiere Pro?”
