Step by Step to Edit iPhone 4K H.265 with Sony Vegas Pro
Step 1: Load 4K H.265 video into the program.
Start the program on your computer, click "File" menu and select "Add Video/Audio" or "Add from folder" to import iPhone 4K H.265 video.
Note: This software could remove the copy protection of BD/DVD movies, and convert them to MP4, AVI, MOV, M4V etc or other optimized device presets according to your needs.
Step 2: Output MP4 video format
Click "Format" bar, from its drop-down options, choose best compatible video format from "Common Video" > "H.264 High Profile Video(*.mp4)" or "H.265 Vdieo (*.mp4)". Or you can also keep the MKV as output format if you like.
Step 3: Compress 4K to 1080p
Hit "Settings" to open the "Profile Settings" window, here you can adjust the output video codec, resolution, bit rate, frame rate and audio codec, bit rate, sample rate and channels. To compress 4K to 1080p, you just need to change resolution from 3840*2160 to 1920*1080, if you want to keep video with 4k resolution just skip this.
