Since H.265 footage like from Samsung NX500 can’t be recognized by Adobe Premiere, a suggestion is to encode H.265(HEVC) files to MPEG-2 for Premiere Pro. Below is a detailed
guide on how to import Samsung NX500 H.265 to Premiere Pro with smooth editing.
The NX500 may share the same guts as the NX1, but it’s obvious they aren’t entirely the same camera, nor are they designed for the same buyer. The NX1 looks and feels like an enthusiast DSLR, because that’s the market it’s targeted toward, particularly videographers. The NX500, however, is the epitome of a compact system camera (CSC): It is much lighter and smaller, with far fewer buttons and dials (construction is solid, but it doesn’t come close to the NX1’s).
Samsung NX500 is using a new compression codec, H.265 HEVC. While it’s the broadcasting standard, there are few applications that recognize it (the benefit is that you can record 4K onto regular SD cards). H.265 footage from Samsung NX500 can’t be recognized by Adobe Premiere, any suggestion?
