Actually, only Pinnacle Studio 20 Ultimate (above) is up-to-date to support 4K UHD Video formats, Version 15/16/17/18/19 and previous doesn't even support H.265/HEVC videos as input. And to edit H.265/HEVC videos with Pinnacle Studio 20 and above, System Requirements as below:

To solve Pinnacle Studio and iPhone 8, iPhone X 4K H.265 MP4/MOV video editing issues, you'll need to update both Pinnacle Studio and Windows OS, which will cost too much money.
