4K Editing Software

Looking for simple and inexpensive software that can trim 4k video clips. Must be able to encode out to H264 and photo jpeg. This will be for preparing stock video clips. I am on Windows Vista 32-bit. My current NLE only goes up to 1920x1080.

Re: 4K Editing Software

Thanks, that looks promising. The specs say best with 64-bit but I saw comments that it works on 32-bit.

Re: 4K Editing Software

The latest versions of several (most?) consumer editing programs (Power Director, Vegas Studio Platinum) claim to be able to handle 4K. Re Pinnacle 17 U, you might want to check out some of the third party reviews and Pinnacle forum comments. Not many happy campers.

Re: 4K Editing Software

I started shooting and editing using Pinnacle Studio. It is a bug ridden pile of pestilence waiting for a vulture to swoop in, kill it off, and put it out of it's misery. For the love of god, please, just do not go there.

Of course, your mileage may vary.

I understand your mileage is the same as most users. Just wanted to correct my earlier post, don't think Vegas Platinum does 4K, please substitute Corel VideoStudio (and I'd be very surprised if Videoredo handles 4K, either).

Re: 4K Editing Software

Thanks Ron - I should have checked with Sony, listened to someone who should have known better, please disregard my earlier correction.

Re: 4K Editing Software

Do you want to be able to export 4K? With some NLEs you can import 4k, but you can only export HD, so you're basically doing an off line edit for a 4k project.

Re: 4K Editing Software

Studio 13 Platinum does not work with Vista. Only on Windows 7 & 8. Would have to add dual boot to make it work on my system.

Re: 4K Editing Software

You may well find this will be true for any software as there is little point in a company introducing a new codec and having to verify with older OS. XAVC and XAVC-S support was only available with Vegas 12 and Edius Pro 7 both only 64bit programs with Win7 or Win8.

Re: 4K Editing Software

Yes, that is what I have pretty much discovered. I guess I will go ahead and do dual booting for Vista and 7, then clone over to SSD and consider my upgrading done for a while.

Re: 4K Editing Software

Looks like Resolve Light can output up to UHD (3840 x 2160) according to the compare page. Is that close enough?

It can do simple cuts and dissolves out of the box.

Blackmagic Design: DaVinci Resolve Compare

It does requires Win7 64bit though.

But.. Its FREE..

Re: 4K Editing Software

I'd thought that Resolve Lite would've have done the job, but your hardware also has to be up to Resolve standards as well.
