Edit GoPro Hero 4K H.265 with Avid Media Composer

Have shot some 4K H.265 video with your GoPro Hero 6 camera and wish to load the 4K footage into Avid Media Composer for some professional post editing workflow. The following article will show you how to get a smooth workflow of GoPro Hero 6 4K H.265 with Avid Media Composer.

Can Avid handle all GoPro Hero 6 4K H.265 video?

From Avid Media Composer supported file formats, we can see this professional editing software lacks the ability to direct handle 4K H.265 video shot with GoPro Hero 6 camera. What's more, as Avid's system requirements for 4K editing at quite high. You should have a dual 10 core Xeon system as an "entry level" 4K editing suite and ideally a faster computer for more 4K editing. It would be much ideal for you to compress 4K to 1080p for smooth editing.
