“I have an issue with Lumix G9 MP4 footage in Premiere Pro CC. Worked perfectly with Sierra, not working anymore with High Sierra. Premiere Pro reports an import error, then you can play the clip but no sound. Does anyone have the same issue? How do you solve it? Please kindly suggest a solution if you know. Thanks in advance.”
Cannot import Lumix G9 4K 60P MP4 footage into Premiere Pro CC? This issue may happen due to various reasons. If you are trying to figure out a way solve the issue, you are just here in the right place. Here in this tutorial, we present a way of encoding Lumix G9 4K MP4 MXF video files to MPEG-2 codec for working with Adobe Premiere Pro CC flawlessly.
The Panasonic G9 is the first Panasonic Lumix camera with an LCD window on top of the body. Advanced photographers who were used to photographing with a high-end SLR camera appreciate an LCD screen on top of the camera. Outstanding video performance with high-precision, silky-smooth 4K 60p recording (QFHD 4K: 3840 x 2160 / MP4). Plus, high-speed video recording yields a dramatic slow motion effect in 4K (60 fps max. 2x slower [30p playback]) or Full HD (180 fps max. 6x slower [30p playback]) quality.
After the upgradation to 10.4 with macOS High Sierra, Premiere Pro CC has issues coping with 4K MP4 footage from Lumix G9 and other cameras. To be able to use Lumix G9 4K MP4 media in Premiere Pro CC fluidly, you could convert them first. Check a guide on how to encode Lumix G9 footage to MPEG-2 codec for editing in Premiere Pro CC fluently.
