    2017 15" MacBook Pro 14,3 macOS 10.13.4; 16 GB RAM, 1TB SSD
    Adobe Premiere Pro CC Version 12.1.0
    4K Video from DJI Phantom 4 Pro+ (H.264, @29.97)

    Previewing at any quality (1/8 through full quality) while editing results in skipping, stuttering footage that after a minute or so will start freezing for 10+ seconds at a time. I bought this laptop specifically because my old MBP couldn't handle 4K at all. With the 2017 MBP's performance though it is just as difficult to edit as on my 2012 MBP. Is this laptop a poor choice for editing 4K in Premiere Pro or do I need to change settings or transcode or something else that I may not be aware of?

    The issue is more of a problem with Premier Pro than your MBP. Premier Pro is known to run like roadkill

    As bending pixels says poor quality software more than a hardware issue. Try FCPX, and see the difference.
