DaVinci Resolve is a color correction and non-linear video editing (NLE) application for macOS, Windows, and Linux. We can load many video formats into latest DaVinci Resolve 16 for further editing. But can we import and edit Panasonic Lumix DC-S5 4K H.265 videos in DaVinci Resolve smoothly? I searched on Google with below two questions:
1) Does Lumix DC-S5 4K H.265 footage work with DaVinci Resolve? This format has now been established as standard by TV Stations.
2) Is there a professional software that converts Lumix DC-S5 H.265 to DaVinci Resolve supported H.264, ProRes or DNxHD?
