How to Import 4K H.265 video from Lumix BGH1 to DaVinci Resolve?
More and more hot cameras/camcorders like Lumix BGH1, GoPro Hero 8, Fujifilm GFX 100S, Sony a1 etc store videos using the outstanding H.265 codec. The problem here is, we would love to be able to bring the H.265 files into DaVinci Resolve directly. But it seems that DaVinci Resolve can’t handle H.265 codec natively. So, any available way to solve the issue?
As far as we know, H.265 is very likely to be even less NLE friendly than H.264. 4x the picture information compressed into the same size file as HD in H.264 means 4x the processing power needed to reconstruct it on a frame by frame basis in real time. So it is very likely to require a significantly more powerful editing workstation to handle it. The higher the compression, the more juice it takes to decompress for frame accurate editing. Thus, to edit Lumix BGH1 H.265 in DaVinci Resolve 17, 16, 15, a quick solution is to convert Lumix BGH1 H.265 footage to a more editing-friendly format, such a H.264 for DaVinci Resolve.
