Since Premiere Elements 19, it has got a bunch of tweaks, including 4K video support. Adobe Premiere Elements 2019 software helps you create stunning movies with easy-to-use video editing options. Based on our testing, I’ve been using it for 4K video footage and it is “smooth” on an i5 computer with 16 GB of RAM. Whereas, there are still GoPro Hero 7 4K to Premiere Elements 2019 issues around you or other guys.
“I recorded some 4K videos with a GoPro Hero 7. Some of the files work great in Adobe Premiere Elements 2019 (I can see the video and hear sound). Others do not work at all. Help will be greatly appreciated with this.”
Actually, it’s probably due to the source video/audio codec. And if your computer is not powerful enough, it leads more issues. We do know a couple 4K shooters who … for editing … transcode all their GoPro Hero 7 4k footage to a more editable format like H.264/MPEG2 for Adobe Premiere Elements (2019, 2018, 15, 14, etc).
Adobe Premiere Elements supported import/export formats include:
AVCHD (import only), DV-AVI (import/export on Windows), DVD (Windows only), H.264, HDV, MPEG-1 (import only), MPEG-2, MPEG-4, MP3, QuickTime (Limited codecs), Windows Media (Windows only), and many more.
Recommended configurations for editing 4K videos
