Summary: To make Panasonic GH4 4K footage compatible with Avid Media Composer perfectly, the easy option is to convert the H4 4K MP4/MOV to a more editable format- DNxHD. Here is how.



Panasonic Lumix GH4 offers videographers a camera for the modern age. Preliminary footage of the GH4 shows its capability and we are impressed. I have got a GH4 for days. Just curious if people have been able to work with the GH4 4K in Avid Media Composer natively yet.

As we know, the Panasonic GH4 video can be recorded in a variety of formats, from efficient AVCHD to .MOV and .MP4 formats in 4K. I have scoured the internet, tried everything I could find about the Panasonic GH4 4K video to Avid MC workflow. The final result I found from all relevant forums is that Avid doesn't do 4K yet.

A common solution to import GH4 4K MP4/MOV files to Avid is to AMA in the footage- but it won't be 4K. Largest project you can have is 1080p. I have tried my best to make it, frustratingly, no luck.
