4K Footage often makes your Premiere Pro CS5/CS6/CC7 crash? Don’t worry. Let’s check the reason and solve it.
4K technology becomes more and more well-known. To understand 4K, consider first current HDTV, which offers 1,920-twenty pixels—the tiny dots that make up the picture—across the width of the screen. 4K resolution is effectively four times that of Full HD, so you'll see the picture, not the pixels, even up close. Movies will be more detailed than you've ever seen on a television before.
But the balance between video quality and size is proportional. The higher the quality, the bigger the size. So people will have the editing problem with Adobe Premiere. 4K Footage is too bigger for Adobe Premiere. So you can’t import 4K Footage to Adobe Premiere, and then it makes your computer crash.
Note: If you own an old version of Premiere Pro, you’d better upgrade it to the new version. Adobe PP CS6, CC7 can handle 4K files without much problem. If you don’t want to upgrade, just use the 4K video converter.
