How do I use Varicam 35 4K files in EDIUS fluently?
“Hi, all, I’ve got a brand new Varicam 35 4K camera sitting on my desk. This camera uses Panasonic’s AVC-ULTRA codec for internal 4K, UHD, 2K, and HD recording. Now I’m having issues working with the Varicam 35 AVC-Intra 4k media in EDIUS. EDIUS imports Varicam 35 4K media, but the editing process is not fluent. Any ideas? A workable transcode? Thanks.”
