(Pocket-lint) - These days, 4K is where it’s at when it comes to video, whether you’re shooting video on your 4K-capable phone or capturing footage using a drone or dedicated GoPro 4K action camera. While 4K produces much better results that HD, it is also more demanding on your computer when it comes to editing. This can result in slow and laggy performance during post-production. Having shot your raw footage, what’s the best way to edit and process it into a movie worth sharing?
Here is one of the best answers: Get it transferred to your Mac or PC where you can tap into your computer’s raw power and large display for maximum effect. You’ll then need suitable 4K video processing software, which is where VideoProc delivers in spades.
VideoProc is one of the easiest video processing software to use with the easy-to-navigate interface making editing and processing incredibly accessible. Whether you want to resize, edit or process 4K video it has you covered. It’s been specially engineered from the ground up to deal with the demands of Ultra HD - including full 4K UHD video, large sized videos generated using the GoPro’s Protune settings, and high-speed videos that have been shot at 120 or 240 fps for converting to slow-motion, as well as, providing an extremely stable process free from lags or unexpected crashes.

VideoProc: Powerful 4K Video Editing & Processing Functions
Toolbox is one of the key features of VideoProc and offers a multitude of editing tools to bring your raw clips to. Here is a run-down of what the software package offers editors keen to make more of their footage.
Deshake and Denosie
This 4K video processing software is packed with useful features like GoPro 4K Video Stabilisation to fix shaky images giving your action movies a smoother look.

Splitting is another way to reduce file size, especially if you are sharing your files with other. The feature will divide one clip into multiple parts allowing you to get the end result through size or bandwidth restrictions you might be battling against and allowing you to forget about "that's files too big" comments in the future.
