Panasonic has announced the development of a new flagship G-series camera, the Lumix DMC-GH5. With it, users can shoot Capture 4K cinematic video (4096×2160) plus 4K QFHD video (3840×2160). I’m one of the owners of Lumix GH5. But I have the issus when I trying to import Panasonic Lumix GH5 4K MOV and MP4 to Final Cut Pro X for editing.
I’m disappointed with the performance of the 4K footage in FCP X. The Lumix GH5 codec seems to tax the CPU far more and I have had to resort to a transcoding step in edit ready to Apple ProRes even on a high end system. Below is the guide on how to convert Lumix GH5 4K recordings to ProRes MOV step by step. Just follow it.
