After upgrading DaVinci Resolve to its its newest version DaVinci Resolve 16 (2019), many people encounter problems when loading Lumix GH5s 4K H.265 file into DaVinci Resolve 16 as below:

1. Hi There, I have just downloaded the new update for DaVinci Resolve 16 from DaVinci Resolve 15 and now I can’t import anything containing my 4K H.265 files from the Panasonic Lumix GH5s. I have tried importing through the media browser and also from FILE. Does anyone have any idea? Many thanks.

2. DaVinci Resolve 16 crashes when importing .mov and .mp4 from Lumix GH5s…anyone else experience this?
Workaround for now: drag all .mov files into a folder without the associated meta data files.
