Edit Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4R 4K MOV videos to Youtube/Vimeo

“I'm wondering if anyone out there has experience with the 4K footage the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4R produces and how it works with YouTube or Vimeo. If so, do you have any suggested export settings to get the most resolution out of the footage - without having to buy a new server farm. Does YouTube support the footage natively, or does it have to be converted first?”

In the trend of 4K video, even the sharing site, YouTube, offers 4K support. But, although YouTube official claims that it supports 4K, many people find it is not easy to upload Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4R 4K video to YouTube. it’ll take an awful long time, and something even worse, it won’t show 4K option for you, but only 1080p sometimes. So what happened? 

I found there are some possible matters may impede you to add Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4R 4K video to YouTube successfully. First, the GoPro output 4K MOV format is not an ideal format for YouTube. Then, the 4K high resolution from Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4R is not supported well by YouTube. As far as I know YouTube now can only support 1080p, 720p video perfectly. What else’s, if you haven’t had a YouTube account yet, you can only upload videos less than 15 minutes; or YouTube won’t accept it.

How to upload Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4R 4K video to YouTube/Vimeo?

Step 1: Download and have a quick installation. The trial version will have a watermark on your converted files. Except for that, there are no time limitation, no virus, and no unnecessary bundle apps while downloading. After that, click “Add Video” button to load your original videos. You can load several files at once thanks to “Add from folder” button.

Step 2: Here, you need to choose what you want the output to be. Click “Format” drop-down list, and then select “HD Video>>AVI HD Video (*.avi)” as the best output format.

Step 3: You can also press the “Settings” button to adjust the video size, bitrate, frame rate, audio sample rate, etc to optimize the quality. As far as I know, YouTube's maximum 4K bitrate is 45Mbps and it doesn't work with 60fps 4K video well. You can set the video frame rate like 24fps. And keep in mind, YouTube always recompress the uploaded video, so upload the best, highest resolution you can.

Step 4: When everything is done, you can take a preview by hitting “Play” button. If you are satisfied with the final result, you can click “Convert” button to finish the conversion work.

Conclusion: Once the conversion process is complete, you can click “Open Folder” button to get the generated files for uploading Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4R 4K video to YouTube/Vimeo with optimum performance.

Solve Premiere Elements 13 crash issue when loading Sony 4K XAVC videos

Summary: Fall in trouble when editing Sony 4K XAVC videos in Premiere Elements 13? If so, follow the easy workaround here.

Adobe Premiere Elements with stunning features is popular video editing software for us. The point here, sometimes, you will find it’s a painful experience when loading Sony 4K XAVC files into Premiere Elements 13. And there are some frequently asked question quoted as below.

Q1: Does Premiere Elements 13 Support 4K video?

Somehow my previous question disappeared. Does this program support 4K to burn to 4K Blu Rays?

Q2: Premiere Elements 13 crash

I’ve tried to get some 4K XAVC footage from an F55 to work in Premiere Elements 13. It imports, but when I try to do anything with it, it crashes.

As far as I know, Premiere Elements 13 has project presets for the video with the resolution of 3840 x 2160 (a 4K resolution) under NTSC only. It also offers export of the 3840 x 2160 resolution under Publish+Share/Computer/XAVC-S. However, there is no burn to Blu-ray with any 4K resolution. The compatibility between 4K videos and Adobe Premiere Elements is still an unsolved mystery in that some persons can import 4K videos into Elements, while the others can not:

On the one hand, the computer configuration and operation environment should play an important role on this aspect. On the other hand, bypassing 4K issue, XAVC, as a newly high compressed video format, is not supported by most NLEs, including Elements, FCP, iMovie .etc. So to get rid of the issue, the first step we need to do is to make 4K XAVC files editable in Premiere Elements 13.

Here we suggest you give a go with Pavtube XAVC Converter for Mac or Win which work smoothly in converting Sony 4K XAVC to a more “edit” friendly codec for Premiere Elements 13 like MPEG-2/AVC MOV. The most attractive thing is that it can downscale your 4K videos into common 1080p so that NLEs can afford well. If you're troubled by the similar problem, just download the right version and follow the guide below to start conversion.

Before processing:

Back up/Transfer the 4K XAVC footage to Mac computer - copy the whole video folder to your computer hard drive, not just the individual .xavc files.

Step 1. Install Launch the Mac XAVC to PE Converter. Click "Add Video" and browse to Sony XAVC clips and the software will add it to file list. Repeat the operation to load multiple XAVC videos. Or you may click the "Add Folder" button to import all the XAVC files in the file structure.

Step 2. Click on "Format" and choose "MPEG-2 (*.mpg)" or "MOV(AVC) (.mov)" from " Adobe Premiere/Sony Vegas> " as the best codec for editing Sony 4K XAVC in Premiere Elements 13. What's more, you can also transcode XAVC toFCP for editing or to QuickTime and iPad Air for playback.

Step 3. Click on "Settings" to redefine output quality. You can also set a different video resolution (1920x1080/1440x1080/1280x720/720x480), frame rate (24p/30p), bitrate, audio channels, etc. For users who would like to retain exactly the same settings (without any quality loss), set target settings the same to source video.

Step 4. Click "Convert" to start transcode 4K XAVC to MPEG-2/MOV for Premiere Elements 13 editing on Mac/PC. Once you get the converted .MOV/.MPG file, you can import it to Premiere Elements 13

Now you can edit your Sony 4K XAVC videos in Premiere Elements 13 with ease.
