Import/edit Lumix GH7 MOV in DaVinci Resolve/iMovie

I have 4K H.265 MOV files downloaded directly from a Lumix GH7 card onto an external hard drive. I want to edit my MOV files in iMovie, but frustratingly, iMovie can't ingest the 4K MOV at all. Any solution can suggest?

I am a media worker, and recently we are using Panasonic Lumix GH7 shoot public service ads micro movies, I would like to do some post-processing with the 5.7K .mov video in DaVinci Resolve 19. However, it gives me an error when I import the H.265 video to DaVinci Resolve 19 on Windows 11, which says that there may be no codec for DaVinci Resolve 19. I don't know why in this case, and my colleague told me the reason is due to the format is not supported by DaVinci Resolve 19. So should I convert the Lumix GH7 5.7K video to the DaVinci Resolve 19 natively supported format?

For any video project, the GH7 is able to deliver exceptionally sharp and clear video. You can capture the full width of the sensor in 5.7K 17:9 up the 30P, or from a 1:1 pixel readout C4K up to 60P with a massive crop. If you care enough about image quality to be shooting RAW video, you should probably stick to the 5.7K mode. Oddly, Open Gate 5.8K RAW recording is not available internally but can be captured externally with an Atomos Ninja V/V+.

Well, Lumix GH7 records video in MOV with H.265, H.264 and MPEG-4 codec, which is not a native editing codec for most NLEs including DaVinic Resolve and iMovie. What's more, the common personal computer doesn't have the ability to process the Lumix GH7 5.7Kand 5.8K video editing work, even if you can import Lumix GH7 MOV footage into DaVnci Resolve 19 on Windows 10/11. The quality of Lumix GH7 material is ultra high definition, so it requires very powerful computer hardware for smoothly editing. In short, for the purpose of better and smoother editing, you're advised to transcode Lumix GH7 H.265 codec files to a more edit-friendly format for DaVinci Resolve 19/iMovie.
