Step 1.Install and run the best H.265 video converter and transfer your 4K H.265 recordings to the program. Click the ‘Add Files’ we can easily get this workflow started.


Step 2. Choose Adobe Premiere/Sony Vegas > MPEG-2 (*.mpg) as the best video format for editing H.265 files in Adobe Premiere as well as good video quality. Of course, you can choose other format for editing in Avid MC, After Effects, Sony Vegas and Windows Movie Maker.

Step 3. (Optional) Adjust the video and audio parameters, including the Bitrate of Video & Audio, Video Size, Sample Rate, Frame Rate, Audio Channels, etc., by clicking the Settings button on the main interface for getting the best quality.
