Yes. At least some 4k material I have has been working ok.
I have just bought Sony Sony FDR-AX100 and need something to edit the 4k files with. Do you think A.P.E. will work?
4K is just a resolution, not the video compression, file extension or other properties of the video file.
Although Premiere Elements 12/12.1 has project presets and export settings for "4K" (3840 x 2160), that does not necessarily mean
that your "4K" video from your particular source will be compatible with Premiere Elements 12/12.1.
From what I have read of the Sony FDR-AX100, it offers 3 different video compression
XAVC S2 with a MP42 file extension (have concerns about this one)
Those last two probably have .mp4 file extensions.
I would strongly advise you to look at the free 30 day tryout of Premiere Elements 12 from Adobe before any purchase.
Whatever your decision, be advised that Adobe is expected to release a new version of the Premiere Elements at the end of
September 2014. No one but Adobe knows the feature set of the new version. That type of information is released only at the moment
of the release of the new version.
Looking forward to learning of your progress when you have the time.
What is the brand/model/settings of the camera that is recording your 4K video that you are successfully importing/editing/exporting from your Premiere Elements 12/12.1 on Windows 8 64 bit?
Thanks. The information will be helpful to all.
I have just bought Sony Sony FDR-AX100 4k camera and have a Mac Book pro..
Thanks so much...will keep you posted!
Thanks for the additional information.
I am strictly an Elements Windows user but I try to keep up with Premiere Elements 12 Mac from what I have read.
Premiere Elements 12 Mac should be able to handle a .mov or .mp4 file extension. But for the rest, ?
Looking forward to your update when your schedule permits.
