Have shot some 4K HEVC/H.265 recordings with your FUJIFILM GFX 100 digital camera and wish to load the 4K MOV videos into Premiere Pro for some professional post workflow? The following article will show you the workflow of GFX 100 4K HEVC/H.265 with Premiere Pro CC, CS6, CS5 and how to smoothly import FUJIFILM 4K H.265 files to all versions of Premiere Pro.
The GFX, FUJIFILM’s mirrorless digital camera system, has achieved the highest level of image quality in the world of professional photography. The system continues its evolution… Like the GFX 50S before it, the GFX 100 has a removable electronic viewfinder. When the EVF is detached, the camera is shorter and has less maximum depth.
Further, the GFX 100 can output 4K 4:2:2 10-bit uncompressed video to an external HDMI recorder while simultaneously capturing 10-bit 4:2:0 video to an SD card. Recording formats include MPEG-4 AVC / H.264 and HEVC / H.265 with 24-bit Linear PCM stereo audio using 48KHz sampling in a MOV container. 4K video is limited to about 60 minutes per clip, while Full HD is limited to about 80 minutes.
