Premiere Crashing on DSLR footage

Re: Premiere Crashing on DSLR footage

So, upon further review, I've found that Premiere crashes upon importing any footage at all. Immediate crash and shutdown of program. And, as noted, this has happened even after a full reinstall of th
Back borders on 4k export?

Export error with H.264
by Nathan McKay 5 years ago
Hello everyone, I can't seem to export Quicktime H.264 from my Davinci project. Before doing anything, I immediately get this error: "Exceed Resolve Max Output Resolution for H.264" I am trying to exp
Re: Export error with H.264
by Nathan McKay 5 years ago
That doesn't make sense, because the Davinci website says that you can export 4k up to the UHD limit, so I should be able to export fine. I'm also getting this error message: Failed to initialize RED

Widescreen and Motion Problem
