From this article below, you can learn the best way to import Panasonic GH5 4K video clips to Avid Media Composer so that you can edit GH5 4K MP4 or MOV video in Avid flawlessly.
The Lumix DC-GH5 Digital Camera from Panasonic provides an outstanding imaging platform for shooters who demand some of the best video and still photography quality they can get in a single compact camera. At the heart of the camera is a 20.3MP Digital Live MOS sensor and a newly developed Venus Engine processor, which both offer dramatically improved processing times over its predecessor. This enables the ability to record 4K video at up to 60 fps, 10-bit 4:2:2 internal recording with select settings, Full HD video at up to 180 fps, 12 fps continuous shooting, and sensitivities up to ISO 25600. Also, the camera features built-in 5-axis sensor stabilization, which can work with certain lenses to activate Dual I.S. 2 for highly effective shake correction that can compensate for up to 5 stops of shutter speed. Other improvements include a speedier and more accurate Advanced DFD autofocus system that can lock on in just 0.05 seconds, as well as 6K PHOTO at 30 fps and 4K PHOTO at up to 60 fps.
I've downloaded a test 4k .mov from Panasonic GH5, but it looks like I'm having a codec problem in Avid Media Composer (solid green screen on ama link). Anybody any ideas if Avid supports Panasonic GH5 yet? Searching high and low, I got some clues.
Avid Media Composer including Avid MC 8 doesn't do 4K well yet, and it is extremely hardware intensive. Plus, H.264 MOV/MP4 files from GH5 is beyond the compatibility of Avid Media Composer. That means Avid Media Composer can't support Panasonic GH5 yet. You wouldn't get a flawless workflow in most cases. .
