Best Way to Import Lumix DC-G9 II H.265 to Davinci Resolve 18 for Editing

H.265 to DaVinci Resolve - Edit H.265 in DaVinci Resolve

I'm considering buying a Lumix DC-G9 II and as part of my research I downloaded several examples of footage shot on this camera in H.265 mode. When I import these 4K files into the latest version of DaVinci Resolve and try to play any of them from the timeline they cause DaVinci Resolve to immediately crash. This happens every time I try it-it's very reproducible. Can I edit H.265 files in DaVinci Resolve 18 smoothly? Has anyone seen this? Is there a fix? Is there something I need to do with the 4K H.265 files before using them on a timeline?

The Lumix G9 II is a worthy flagship, packing the best autofocus and subject detection from a Lumix G to date, ultra fast shooting with pre-burst options, excellent stabilisation, great image quality, and seriously good video which in some respects out-rivals the GH6. The G9 II is a highly-capable video camera featuring up to DCI 4K and UHD 4K 60p unlimited recording with 4:2:2 10-bit color, and for videographers who want to create high-resolution slow-motion video, the camera also supports C4K/4K 120p video capture with 4:2:0 10-bit color.

The Panasonic Lumix G9 II uses H.265 codec that compresses the camera's 4K image data at a high level of quality for internal recording using Dual SD memory card slots. However, most major NLEs currently do not natively support the new 4K H.265 codec. If you are planning on editing Lumix DC-G9 II H.265 footage in NLEs like DaVinci Resolve 18, Premiere Pro, After Effects and Vegas Pro, you will need to convert them to an intermediate format that is compatible with your editing program prior. The format conversion will ensure a fast and fluid editing workflow.
