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.

Pinnacle Studio 17 Ultimate - Best Video Editing Software

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.

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).

Sony Vegas Movie Studio 13 Platinum and Suite does handle 4K XAVC-S see comparisons. Vegas Pro 12 Product Comparisons

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.

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.

Ron Evans February 26th, 2014 08:18 AM

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.

Re: 4K Editing Software
 
I seem to be one of very few on here who edit with Magix software. I currently use Movie Edit Pro 2013 on 64bit Win 7 PC, which I have been very happy with, but decided to upgrade to Movie Edit Pro X6 as Magix are offering existing users a great upgrade deal.

One of the first things I found is that it now has provision for 4K editing, which is no use to me at the moment, but possibly later in the year. There are also a number of Pro formats added and the Multicamera facility is now increased to 9 channels with monitoring. There are some excellent programmes bundled with it which include the Mercalli stabilising plug in programme that I really like and of course it also uses Magix audio sync facility which I really like on the 2013 version. it seems to work as well as Pluraleyes but is built into the programme and works directly from the timeline.

I'm really surprised that so few use Magix, but I suppose it is easier to stick with the better known names that most use.

It can't even read 4K videos, let alone export to 4K. In fact, it can't do anything at all with videos higher in resolution than 1080p.

Re: 4K Editing Software
 
It may be worth checking out the new Lightworks V12.5 beta, since this version has 4k exports for some video codecs. It also has Cinema DNG import support.

Have a look at Avid, they have monthly subscription available.

Edius for 4K. Best kept secret on the planet...

Does anyone know if Sony Vegas Pro is 4K-ready, or will be in the near future? My cameras aren't 4K-ready (Panasonic HMC150's) but I would upgrade if Vegas was ready.

OH MY GOSH! That's what I used for years before moving to Sony Vegas Pro. Magix was a great bang for the buck! VERY intuitive and lots of fantastic features came with it. I made some pretty fun videos in my day with Magix. Have fun!
