    Not sure if this is of use. With my Inspire I have usually only done 1080 video. I have recently tried 4K and noticed that when I play the video on my desktop computer it skips frames and looks jerky. I decided the issue was with my computer's ability to process and play the video image. I checked this by importing the 4K video directly into Premiere Pro CS6 and it ran smoothly with no missing frames, although the resolution displayed was clearly less than 4K.

    Good luck

    Your recording is probably perfectly good but your computer is too slow to play it back.

    I've recorded at 4K without any problems but the same video file on a MacBook will not play back as smoothly as on a Mac Pro Trashcan. Too much data, too little time, not enough horsepower (this is the story of my life, too ;) ).

    To edit the video you have to prepare lower resolution clips and use what is called proxy editing. (Do a Google search for: proxy editing for more info, but it basically means doing the editing on lower resolution clips and, when you're done, switch the editing software to use the original high resolution clips to produce 4K output.)

    Most likely your card has nothing to do with why you're seeing jerky playback.
