Problems with Canon R files on premiere running on Mac

 

I just got a canon R as a second camera. When importing the 4 K files from the Canon R into Premiere they are slow and lag when played back.

I’m using a Mac Pro book mid 2014 with Mac OS Sierra 10.12. 6.

What can I do to make it work better? Or is the computer to old?  When trying to use the media encoder to transform the files to H264, it sees to take ages for each clip.

Perhaps that’s the only way. Or? When using Pro Res HQ files recorded on a Canon C100/Ninja everything runs perfect.

Thanfull for tips! Best Erik

Let me move this to the Premiere forum for you, which is the appropriate forum for your question.

I've already moved your post to the correct forum. I assumed Premiere Pro, but if you're using Premiere Elements let us know and someone will move you again.

h264 in not good for editing in general, if you add to the mix 4K and old hardware, it just become unuseable. As a solution, you can either transcode to ProRes422, or use proxies. I'd use latter, since it does not require that much storage space.

Hi

Thanks for you answer. I will probably buy a new computer in the near future but until then I will transcode the material.

Do I understad you right that what you mean with proxies is low res material?

 

best

Proxies are lower-resolution copies of your media that are created for ease of editing. At the time of export full-res media is used instead. Useful article: 3 Ways to Work with Proxies in Premiere Pro - Frame.io Insider
