We just upgrade to the new Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2015 and we wanted to find out if Premiere finally can read Blackmagic 4K RAW video file. Blackmagic Ursa gives you two recording modes: Apple ProRes 422 HQ and losslessly compressed CinemaDNG RAW. However, something turns to be frustrated; the Blackmagic Ursa 4K ProRes videos are not accepted by Adobe Premiere Pro. This article just aims to give you some tips and tricks for importing and editing Blackmagic URSA 4K in Premiere Pro beautifully. But I’m having trouble figuring out how to import Blackmagic URSA 4K to Premeire Pro with a smooth workflow.

Learn from Adobe official site, I got know that Premiere Pro CC (2015) can support editing and monitoring 4K video, including Canon XF-AVC and Panasonic 4K444 formats. But the point here is, Adobe Premiere Pro old version still uses 1080p as primary delivery format and will continue to do so for a long time. So how to import and edit Blackmagic URSA 4K clips in Premiere Pro smoothly? Searching further online, I was advised to convert and downscale 4K to 1080p from Blackmagic for Premiere Pro before editing.
