I've recorded a few footage sequences on my Canon 5d mkIV with the dimensions being 4096  2160. Once or twice I've created a clip in Premiere Pro, but the finished result never looks to be of a good quality, so I guess I'm either missing something when I import and/or export.

I really want to set up Premiere Pro correctly from the start, but the stock sites all seem to have different requirements - I've had a couple of clips accepted on Shutterstock, but when I try and upload to Dreamstime I'm told they are the incorrect format. I exported as Quicktime, but I think I actually ended up with clips that only had dimensions of 1920 x 1080, and if I try to overwrite this before export, the larger parameters are not accepted.

Does anyone have a link or set of instructions that can make this a little more simple for a beginner?

What codec are you using within Quicktime? Most sites accept Photo JPEG. Some codecs only support up to 1080p.

Swich to LUMIX GH5 and won't have any issues! Cheaper but much,much better quality than 5d mkIV

Thanks for your replies, guys - I figured it out in the end, and without the need to buy a new camera!

I used photo jpeg, but I wanted to slightly increase speed, so I switched from 25fps to 30 fps on output. For some reason I couldn't overwrite the dimensions if I did this. In the end, I just kept with 25 fps and that allowed me to overwrite the 1920 x 1080 with the original 4096  2160. I think I need to change the speed when I edit rather than when I output.

I have a lot to learn, but this is a start :)
