Convert Canon EOS R6 4K H.265 for DaVinci Resolve
“The Canon EOS R6 arrived at my home late last week. There is A LOT to like in this new camera. Solid 4K picture up to 60fps. 1080 up to 120fps, non cropped full Frame, internal 10-bit, 4:2:2 recording (H.265, IBP), great Auto Focus in all filming modes. great IBIS, C-Log, HDR PQ, and more. The former captures in H.265 format and is readily imported into DaVinci Rrsolve 16 with no loss in quality. However, theCanon EOS R6captures in .mp4 format which DaVinci Resolve 16 doesn’t recognise. This necessitates a conversion to an acceptable format and this is where I am running into problems. – Snell, Bill”
