    4K Video on MBPro i5 2.4GHz 8GB

    Hello!

    First time posting here, and I'm hoping someone can help me with a video issue.

    I've been shooting footage in UHD. When I browse it on the GH4's screen it is perfectly smooth, however, when I import the file(s) onto my MacBook Pro the video gets very jerky; intermittently freezes, then catches up; and loses sync with the on-camera audio (which stays perfectly smooth). This happens whether I import the footage into Premiere Pro CC, or view it in the finder. It even happens when I downscale to 1080p in Premiere.

    My question is: Am I missing something in how I appropriate my system's resources, is my computer just too darn slow, or is there something else going on?

    I wouldn't think this should happen when downscaled to 1080p. The problem occurs within seconds of the footage rolling.

    Thanks in advance for any help!
    Cheers!

    Hi and welcome to ft-u.

    I don't have the answer you are seeking - a fellow member will no doubt be more helpful.

    Kind regards. Barr1e

    editing 4k video requires a fast machine, graphics card and lots of ram. You might try converting the video to Prores codec. This will playback much better for editing.
