440 Forums _ Software on Windows _ How To Import Leica Sl Dci 4k Videos To Premiere For Editing

Posted by: rileysarah123 Wed 28 Mar 2018, 08:21

I have used Canon, Nikon & Leica and this Leica SL is the best camera I have used. Viewfinder is brilliant and accurate. Image quality is incredible and the video is outstanding with UHD 4K (3840 x 2160) at 30 and 25 fps available in addition to DCI 4K when using the camera's Super35 mode. Great experience other than working Leica SL 4K clips in Adobe Premiere Pro

I shot everything in 4K MP4, but Adobe Premiere Pro won't load the 4K files. After multiple searching and testing, I got the result 4K MPEG-4 video format from Leica SL was not supported by Premiere Pro. Most people tried to but it ended in failure all the time.

A quick workaround I've worked out is to convert Leica SL 4K MP4 to Premiere Pro best supported editable format- MPEG-2 MPG with the help of UFUSoft This powerful 4K Video to Premiere Converter can help you convert your Leica SL 4K files to MPEG-2 for better editing with Premiere Pro. Besides, with this Leica 4K Video Converter, you also can convert 4K MP4 to other format you want, such as ProRes for FCP, DNxHD for Avid MC, AIC for iMovie, etc. In addition, it also let you do some simple editing with the 4K Video Converter like trimming, cropping, setting, etc. Download the program and start the conversion process.
