Import Panasonic DC-GH5 4K MOV/MP4 videos to After Effects for editing

About Panasonic DC-GH5

With the DC-GH5, Panasonic is taking the rather unusual step of announcing even before the camera reaches the market that it is preparing some feature upgrades via firmware that’s slated to arrive by the summer. Among the changes on offer in this new firmware will be support for 4K capture with All-I intraframe compression instead of the default IPB interframe compression. 4K All-I capture will be possible at 24, 25 or 30 fps with a 400Mbps bitrate, and should offer higher image quality at the expense of significantly larger file sizes. Videographers shooting at Full HD resolution will also gain access to All-I compression, but with a 200Mbps bitrate and frame rate options of 60, 50, 30, 25 or 24 fps. They’ll also get access to 10-bit 4:2:2 IPB-compressed video with a 100Mbps bitrate at these same frame rates.
