Fix Panasonic GH5 10bit 4K MOV in Premiere Pro Crash Issue
Love my new Panasonic GH5. I went out and did my first test shots this afternoon, everything plays back kosher in the camera. But when I I tried playing GH5 10bit 4K MOV files in Premiere Pro, the playback was a mess to the point of slowing down and crashing the program quickly.

Searching 5+ relevant forums and threads, I know it's a big issue for using GH5 10bit MOV with Premiere. A practical way is to use a third-party tool to rewrap them to ProRes or MPEG-2 for Premiere. I applied Brorsoft Video Converter for Mac, a professional 4K video converter app.

It lets you transcode Panasonic GH5 4K MP4/MOV to MPEG-2, Apple InterMediate Codec, Apple ProRes, DNxHD and more. This is a smart tool specially designed for 4k users to preview and convert 4K as well as 1080p recordings to your wanted video and audio formats, so as to smoothly add them into Adobe Premiere Elements, Davinci Resolve, Premiere Pro, iMovie, FCP, Avid Media Composer to do further editing. If you have GH5 4K editing issues on Windows PC, get the Video Converter to solve the problem.

This time, Premiere read and cut through the new file like butter with no lag. Now I will present the step-by-step guide how to convert GH5 10bit MOV to Premiere Pro edit-friendly format below.

1. Add GH5 4K .mov files

Launch the Panasonic GH5 4K converter, and click the "Add Files" button to load 4k 10bit .mov videos for converting.

2. Choose Premiere friendly format

Click "Format" bar and then move your pointer Adobe Premiere/Sony Vegas -> MPEG-2(*.mpg) as target format.

Tip: If the default settings do not fit your requirement, you can click "Settings" icon and enter "Profile Settings" panel to adjust video size, bit rate, frame rate, sample rate and audio channels. 1080p would be the best settings. Of course, if you wanna get Panasonic GH5 4K workflow in Adobe Premiere Pro, you can keep the original video resolution.

3. Start 4K video conversion

Tap "Convert" button to start converting Panasonic GH5 4K MOV files MPEG-2 for Adobe Premiere Pro under Mac OS X. Once the conversion is done, you can simply import Panasonic GH5 4K footage into Premiere Pro CC/CS6/CS5 for further editing.
