Hi

Can any one recommend a pc based video editing software that can handle editing 4k 60fps at 100mb data rate.  I have been using Corel Video studio for years with other cameras but the bit rate on the DJI pocket is so high the software cant seem to cope with it.  I have been in touch with Corel but they cant seem to resolve it.  Any recommendations (apart from adobe premier pro - too expensive) would be greatly received.

Thanks

Adobe Premiere Elements works great with high bitrate Pocket 2 footage.

Are you certain that the issue isn't with your computer rather than with the software?

I don't have any issue with Premiere Pro, but it really depends on your machine configuration.
In case you have lags you can use proxies and work on them without lag, and switch to the original footage before final export.

Hi Thanks for the reply.

I don't have lag.  When the project has rendered it comes put with a lower bit rate than the original no matter what settings I am using in Corel Video Studio.  This causes some garining effects in the finished video.

I dont think its the computer as I can render a film that comes out with the same bit rate and qaulity but only if I dont add any titles or graphics of any kind. If I do the finished film sticks on the opening graphic and pixelates.  The video runs with no picture and only audio.  Im guessing if it was the Laptop then it wouldn't be able to produce the high qaulity film at all.   I have tried various settings so think its the software but I cant be 100% sure .

Have you tried LumaFusion , its iOS based but its really good quick handles 4K like a knife going through Butter, works on both Mac book or ipad iphone so very easy to use while traveling has everything you need to edit pocket videos and much more. It only costs one off fee £20 . You can get it at the App Store . Extremely easy to use and plenty instruction video on YT.


I also use FCPX , but 9 times out of 10 I will now use LumaFusion.

My choice is Adobe Premiere Pro. Fortunately DJI Pocket 2 creates lo-resolution doubles of every video, titled with .LRF extension.
I copy files to my computer and run a script that batch renames all .LRF to xxx_Proxy.MP4 (xxx is the original filename without extension)  This way Adobe Premiere recognizes the lo-res copies as Proxies for a higher resolution original mp4 files.
I select all added hi-res MP4 files, right-click "Proxies - Attach Proxies" and select a _Proxy.MP4 file for the first one. Others are attached automagically.

This makes editing on an old laptop easier. For output it takes the original hi-res versions, of course.

In Short No.  I'm PC based not an apple fan, found they tried to control every aspect of what I wanted to do with my own devices.

I use PowerDirector (by Cyberlink), one-off licence fee rather than monthly subscription.  Simple to use, intuitive, and not very expensive. After sales support is good.   I recommend you don't use Pinnacle editing software.  I used it for years - but, like Corel, it crashed all the time as it couldn't handle high resolution/frame rate and high data rate video very well.  In addition to checking your PC system can handle the new software requirements, I specifically recommend you check that your graphics card is good enough.  In order to get the best out of my PowerDirector software I had to update my PC graphics card which was a simple enough thing to do.  If your graphics card isn't good enough you may find the software freezes when you edit 4k video in particular

Thats interesting that LRF files works as proxy,
is there a similar way to make use of LRF files in Davinci Resolve also?

Vegas Movie Studio should be able to handle it as it edits 8K.  On sale now thru 27 July at three different levels.  Even the top one is 1/3 the price of Vegas Pro.

Davinci Resolve basic is awesome for free and available for Win/Mac and is something I used for years.  I recently started using Final Cut Pro X and that works well for me but each editor has its quarks.  Although I do miss color correction on Resolve.

DaVinci Resolve, hands down one of the best free editors and post production programs out there, after awhile bet you will want the full version.

Davinci Resolve 17 is out there for free. Check your own computer power and graphic card requirement.
ShotCut is great and simple.
Both are highly recommended.

If you are interested in free software, davinci resolve 17.3 is the best hands down. For the paid one Adobe premiere pro.
