PHOTO PROOF of horrific 4K Rendered video !!!
Newbie to forum but not to camcorder but certaintly to 4k camcorders.
So - Wow! what a disappointment my Panasonica 4K VXF1 turned out to be. Firstly, i learn ( after forking out £600 ) that it's nothing more than a Panny 800 ! ( and has reduced HD quality - making my aged Panny TM700 give a run for it's money ! ) secondly, no 4k features in-built on camera.
Boy was i miffed.
However, best till last. ( And just mention i have posted a thread similar on AVForum - helpful but not in a 4k way - and they recommended your good selves as deal more with 4k. )
SO, the issue where's my tissue!
I edit on Videostudio 2018 ( future features even more buggy !, i have tried PremierePro but my PC just about appears capable..using Motion Array transitions etc ..i think I7 6700 / Geforce 970 /Ram 32 / 4core/64 bit...is basically in need of a processor or graphics cards facelift.
I filmed some 4k footage, on a stand. Nothing special. Brought it into Videostudio. Rendered. No problems. yes,a little juddery to edit ( but even HD footage had that problem..although not quite so bad. ) , the frames dropped a little...but Rendered and no probs..looked..great...dare i say very great. I suspect outcome was 1080 etc and not watching on 4k tv..but heck..happy result.
NOW, I edited my little short video, and i decided to do a slight Zoom into a person ( all the time would do that whilst editing, HD, no issues at all )...when i rendered this...the outcome was...well...see the stills. The first shot is great...look at the second - LOOK AT IT - THIS IS FROM 4K FOOTAGE. This is from the SAME video..literally..I kid you not. The only difference was, i placed a slight zoom onto it. ( Not - in-camera..i didnt zoom )...also, because i tested again..i added al ittle brighteness...a crop from Videostudio..and AGAIN..same dreadful mid 80's well used porn video quality.
So - put this in your pipe and smoke it..anyone out there any thoughts. Is VS just not capable ..yes it renders great..but when asked to slow zoom etc..it cant cope and loses some (a lot! ) of quality and framerate???
Interesting one yes? Btw, i did Smartproxy in VS ( which makes a copy more workable to edit and then renders top quality...but YES..narturally i tried this with and without smartproxy.
SO, lengthy post, sorry, keep up, my PC cant cope? VS cant deal with any 'messing about to the video' ( although transitions ProDad flashes etc no issues at all good quality etc )..
Thoughts on my cruddy Panny btw welcome...so disappointed...i cant even edit 4k in-camera to apply a zoom!!! useless.
