Fujifilm 4k video editing software

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for recommendations for video editing software to use with the MOV/H.265 HEVC file format.  I have a really high spec PC that I built myself, but I've tried Corel VideoSuite Ultimate 2020, and I have also looked into Adobe Premier Pro.  Corel say they can handle that codec, but my PC just crashes as soon as I try to do anything with it - Adobe have acknowledged that the files need to be converted into a different format.  I have used Adobe Premier Rush and it lets me work on the files, but it has limited functionality for music editing. 

This format appears to be the highest spec format for video, and I'm planning to do some music videos which might need a lot of sound editing.  I have installed the Microsoft HEVC video extensions, PC is a 7th generation i7 processor, 48Gb RAM, 6gb graphics card.   

Is this just an example of bleeding edge technology - nobody else has got there yet?

Hi Ken,

Have you considered trying Davinci Resolve?  I have used it with 4K H.265 4:2:0 generated with an X-T3.  Color grading tools are excellent.  Works well on a Mac.  But I know there is Windows version.  You can download the very powerful freeware version 17 that has no time limits to see if it works for you.

DaVinci Resolve has quite a bit of a learning curve (for me at least). I use it mainly for stabilizing videos.

Try VSDC or HitFilms. Like DaVinci Resolve, the free versions have enough features available for most needs. VSDC is more fully featured. There's a small cost to upgrade to a "pro" version which enables hardware acceleration especially handy if you have video card that you can utilize for video-related tasks.

Cyberlink power director - its been about 4 years since I used it but a great value, easy to use, and will do those files, made for windows

i have used that in my android phone to edit phone videos . does the windows version has the capabilities close to or similar to adobe premier pro ?, i haven't tried the windows version of the cyberlink power director , but the android version used to give less quality files compared to premier pro in my pc ,also didn't had many types of video exporting formats , still in android i always use it to do quick edit's for posting online etc.. but is the windows version good for professional work ? . please let me know , have a nice day ahead !

I have not used the phone version and yes the windows one will support the files you like and output proper ones too. 

Try it for free and see the comparison page for details on file support

I personally used many video editing softwares and I didn't like premiere and davinci. the problem fo me is that they require much performance and occupy a lot of space. Once I have tried online video editing tool, I stopped using everything else. And I really don't see any disadvantages. So I really recommend you trying www.fastreel.com

I heard good things too about online editors recently.. but it is practical only for people who have high speed internet connection without data limit.. since uploading uncompressed video files from camera will use a lot of data and require a lot of time depending on the size and even when recording in fhd it goes beyond 20gb within 10 minutes.. so it is nice, but not very useful for everyone.. since people who could afford high speed internet without data limit which could upload 20gb in a hour.. can surely afford a m1 mac mini or macbook pro or any laptop with intel i9 or ryzen 9 and these devices can edit 4k dci videos effortlessly as you watch a movie...  also premier pro and davinci etc.. only take 3gb maximum for installation space... so i am not saying you're wrong etc.. because i heard good about it from a few professionals... but storage space and performance was not an issue at all, if you were discussing about editing videos taken with camera , factoring in the size of video files will be at least 100gb totally while you were recording a small 20 minute talk with a few extra scenes..  anyway , thanks for sharing your opinion about the online editing software.. but i was just explaining the differences so people can get an idea and can choose between easily.. because it's not applicable for everyone who doesn't have an unlimited high speed internet connection which also doesn't have any type of data or speed cap. but for a travelling enthusiast who has unlimited high speed internet.. this is indeed a very good option.. since they can work using any type of device, without worrying about it's hardware capabilities. have a nice day !.

    • Hi all. After a long break from photography I've decided to get back into it and am about to purchase a Fuji X-E2 body (which I deem more than adequate for my needs at this point).    I had previously shot Canon but could never really afford decent glass for it. But I see times have changed and not only do Fuji seem to have some reasonably priced XF lenses, there are a number of recommended 3rd party manufacturers in the game.   I am still very much on a budget but don't need much for my particular interests. Thinking a 10-12mm, a 23-27mm and a 35mm should meet my needs (mainly street with some landscapes) and perhaps a 50mm or 60-100mm later. I'm only interested in prime lenses and reckon it comes down to a decision over whether I want AF or not.   Been looking at the Fujinon f1.4s which tick the boxes but will take me a long time to purchase given my financial situation. Happy to take it slow though if that's the general concensus (would be happier with one very good lens than three average).   The other option is the MF offerings from 7artisans, TTartisans and the like. I could pick up a few with very wide apertures (up to 0.95) very affordably. But I'm interested in the opinions of those who have used and compared them both (Fuji and non-Fuji). I don't have any natural objection to MF as I used it way back for film, but I haven't shot a mirrorless digital with a manual lens and never used zoom focusing, focus peaking etc. From what I've seen it's pretty quick and straightforward if slightly slower than AF. I must admit that the AF on my old canon DSLR used to annoy the hell out of me with the incessant hunting for focus and noise. But that was a long time ago and I'm guessing things have changed (these were also very much lower end Canon lenses).   I've had a search already, but if anyone would mind offering their opinions based on experience I'd be very grateful.   Many thanks...
    • I had this problem. I toggled between the two image disp options (full screen/small window) for OVF in the menu, and now it works again. 
    • Same here with a x h2s connected to a raveneye, losing the raveneye made my recording stop 😭

    • Hey All! I'm new here and desperate! I just upgraded from my XT3 to an XT5 and need tethering advice. A huge part of what I do is tethered shoots and I've been successfully tethering my XT3 with Fuji Tether Pro Plugin to Lightroom for years. It is essential that the software can fully control the camera. First of all it was very difficult to update the existing plugin. You have to remove it and reinstall it,  which doesn't work properly.  In the end,  I had to manually unzip the downloaded update file and enter in the code myself. More importantly.  The update does allow you to focus and take photos but the settings control doesn't work. That's means you can not adjust ISO,  Shutter speed or f-stop with the software. These buttons simply don't work when you click them. Has anybody else experienced this?  Is there perhaps a previous version of the update does work? Has anybody managed to tether with Capture one?  I read there are also bugs. I'm willing to switch systems if it fully works. If I can't fix it I'm stuck with an Xt5 that I paid a lot of money for that I can not use for its intended purposes.
