Still have doubt about what H.265 is? Read this article and you will get a clear idea, and also get a simple gudie about converting H.265(HEVC) to AIC .mov for iMovie. Enjoy!

H.265 or High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) is a new video codec technology. It is a video compression standard that is the successor to H.264 or MPEG-4 AVC (Advanced Video Coding), one of the compression schemes used by Blu-ray. HEVC doubles the data compression ratio compared to H.264 or MPEG-4 AVC at the same level of video quality. That is the compressed video file will be half the size of the video file compressed with H.264. It can also improve the video quality at the same bit rate. H.265 can support up to 8K UHD and resolution up to 8192x4320.

How to Play H.265 file

If you got some H.265 files and want to edit your H.265 videos on Mac OS X, iMovie could be your good choice. But can iMovie support H.265 codec?

I've read that many people are talking about H.265 codec and iMovie. The truth is H.265 codec lacks of compatibility with the Apple ecosystem including iMovie program.

To transcode H.265 to iMovie format easily and quickly, Brorsoft Video Converter for Mac, a professional yet easy-to-use Mac H.265 encoder, is highly recommended. This program features high efficiency and seamless conversion. By running it, there is no need to set the codec yourself, the program has an optimized preset for iMovie (iMovie'11 included). With it, you can convert H.265 files to Apple InterMediate Codec encode MOV files, ensuring maximum editing quality and efficiency when working with iMovie.

Besides, the H.265 encoder also can convert H.265(HEVC) files to more editing tools with professional codec, like ProRes for Final Cut Pro, MPEG-2 for Adobe Premiere Pro, DNxHD for Avid Media Composer, etc. What's more, the built-in video editor allows you to modify your videos by trimming, cropping, adjusting video effects and more. Below is the step-by-step tutorial on how to make H.265 codec compatible with iMovie.

How to Edit Panasonic GH4 4K MP4 and 1080p MOV/AVCHD in FCP X (Yosemite)

May 25 2015 , Written by lauralily10 Published on #Panasonic GH4 fcp x, #Panasonic GH4 4k video converter, #convert Panasonic GH4 video on mac os x yosemite, #Panasonic GH4 video converter, #edit Panasonic GH4 video in fcp x, #Panasonic GH4 4k to prores, #pansonic gh4 1080p mov to final cut pro, #Panasonic GH4 1080p avchd to fcp 7, #Panasonic GH4 4k mp4 import to edit in fcp x

With Panasonic GH4 Video Converter, you can convert 4K MP4 and 1080P MOV/AVCHD video to FCP X ProRes video. You will edit Panasonic GH4 video in FCP X freely on Mac OS X (10.10 Yosemite).

GH4 Camera

The world’s first compact system camera to feature 4K video recording, the Panasonic GH4 has an impressive 16.05 Megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor built for high sensitivity and fast response. The newly developed generation of Venus Engine processor for this camera has a Quad Core CPU for high speed signal processing that is needed for 4K recording. In addition this makes the camera capable of Full HD recording with a bit rate of 200 Mbps (all Intra-frame) or 100Mbps (IPB). Choose video formats from MOV, MP4, AVCHD and AVCHD Progressive - at a variety of frame rates, plus there is easy frequency switching between 59.94Hz (23.98Hz) / 50.00Hz / 24.00Hz for international use. The high speed processor also allows the on-camera retouching of images in RAW format and a burst frame rate of 12fps.

According to my testing, the 4K video was restricted to shooting and editing in Final Cut Pro X, which handles 4K input and renders the output to 1080 HD. If you want to import Panasonic GH4 4k to iMovie/FCE/FCP(6/7), you will need to do some preparation before editing.

The reason that you can’t successfully ingest those Panasonic GH4 recorded 4K files to FCP, iMovie, FCE, etc non-linear editing systems is simple. Currently 4K footage is not widely supported yet, only a few video editing program like FCP X can support it. In order to edit Panasonic DMC-GH4 4K MOV/MP4 files smoothly, the easy workaround is to use 3rd-party to rewrap and convert Panasonic GH4 footage to a more “editable” format in 1080p.

This Ultra HD Video Converter is also available to customize the output resolutions to any size the users want. Thus, with the video converter app, you can fast transcode Panasonic GH4 4K video to FCP, iMovie, FCE friendly format with ease.

2. Launch the 4K file converter and click add button to import Panasonic 4k clips to the program for converting.

Tip: Click the Settings button; you can recommended to set the video size, bit rate, fame rate, etc. Here you are recommended to set the video size as 1920*1080 for iMovie, FCE, Final Cut Pro 6/7 can’t support raw 4K video well.
