Best Workflow to Edit 4K MXF/MOV/MP4 in Pinnacle Studio 15/16/17/18

There are some problems such as not showing the video but audio only, unsupported file type when playing & editing 4k video in Pinnacle Studio, especially in 4K MXF/MOV/MP4. So, how to work with 4k video to Pinnacle Studio 15/16/17/18 beautifully? Here is how! 

Source From: 4K MXF/MP4/MOV/XAVC/XAVC S files to MPEG-2 for Pinnacle Studio 

4K format was named because it has 4000 pixels horizontal resolution approximately. Meanwhile, standard 1080p and 720p resolutions were named because of its vertical resolution. The new standard renders more than four times higher image definition than 1080p resolutions for example. 

4K Video Source: 

With the number of 4K-capable cinemas already high and growing fast, more and more new films are either being converted into 4K Ultra HD digital masters from 35mm celluloid, or filmed directly in the 4K digital format using a new generation of 4K-capable digital cameras or camcorders, such as Panasonic GH4, Sony FS7, FS700 , Sony AX33, AX53, Canon XC10, DJI Phantom 3, etc.,.
