Does anyone know a good JVC GY-LS300 4K Video Converter?
“Hi, there, I’ve captured a number of 4K video files wrapped in QuickTime (.mov) format using JVC GY-LS300 camcorder which I want to ingest to Avid for post-production. Avid allows for easy and direct importing of videos from my camcorder, but it is very unreliable and unstable, so I needed something else to convert them first. My problem is that, the converters I’ve tried were not able to convert them to what I needed. Can anyone give me some suggestions if you know a good 4K MOV Video Converter? Thanks.”
