Hey everyone,

I have been filming recently using an Autel Evo Pro II 6k in H.265. I typically shoot 4k at 60fps. I purchased the codec from Microsoft (thanks for nickel and diming guys). At first AE wouldn't open the files and actually corrupted them. I rolled back the version to 18.1 and now don't have an issue. However when I try to open them in Premiere I get errors about compression type. I'm on a windows machine built for 3D sculpting and modeling so power isn't the issue and the file is a .mp4 (I've seen others use that solution). It seems like this codec has been around for a few years so I'm confused why it wouldn't be supported. I was told if I'm going to shoot 4k at 60fps that I should use H.265 because that is what it was intended for and that H.264 will dip my quality. Please help!

I found the issue. The codec is useful for viewing in players other than the adobe software, but it seems the latest versions of both after effects and premeire can't read the H.265 codec. I rolled back to the previous version and everything worked fine.

Could you dropbox a short sample of your footage?

You don't need to buy the codec from MS. It is installed with Premiere.

On a side note, H.265 is not a very good codec for editing (too compressed). Best is to convert to Prores for editing.

That is what I thought (in regards to the codec) however Premiere wouldn’t open it. I have the full CC suite. So I bought the codec and yet still it won’t open. Converting it isn’t a huge issue, but I would like the option to use it in premiere

 

 

So to recap if the codec is there it isn’t working and even after purchasing from Microsoft it still isn’t working. Any other help?
