Convert 4K video to DNxHD for editing in Avid Media Composer

“4K” has become the hottest word in the digital photography and video field in recent years. Lots of 4K products such as 4K camcorders(Blackmagic 4K, Panasonic GH4, Sony FDR AX1/AX100…), 4K TVs, 4K movies are springing up. However, format compatibility issue is quite common in the video world, which is also true to the stunning 4K. In this article, we will talk about the 4K and Avid compatibility. If you’re planning to import 4K video to Avid Media Composer for editing, read on to find something you need.

You will be wondering what to expect in terms of 4K support in Avid, since it seems like everything is shooting 4K these days. Although Media Composer has already had 4K and “high-resolution” (i.e., higher-than-4K) support via Avid Media Access (AMA) in previous versions and now the 4K to Avid Media Composer workflow has been even improved in Media Composer 8. Whereas, there’s actually no way to edit a 4K project natively with Avid. In most cases, editing 4K raw in Avid Media Composer is very taxing on your computer. An ultimate solution we found would be to transcode/compress 4K to DNxHD for Avid Media Composer.
