Summary: How to work DJI Phantom 3 4K in Adobe Premiere, Final Cut Pro, Avid Media Composer? I’ll try to give you a method to import DJI Phantom 3 4K to Premiere/FCP/Avid MC for editing without any loss.

A complete 4K camera and 3-axis gimbal system come integrated with the Phantom 3 Professional edition quadcopter from DJI. With the 4k camera, users can record up to 4K videos. However, I can’t successfully import the JI Phantom 3 4K to FCP, Adobe Premiere, Avid MC or other NLEs for editing. I’m searching for a solid answer for the DJI Phantom 3 4K to Premiere/FCP/Avid MC issues.

From the DJI Phantom 3 4K camera spec, I got to know it builds 4K videos in MOV wrapper. Generally, Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro, Avid Media Composer can support MOV format. But the problem is, the DJI Phantom 3 4K is encoded with MPEG-4 AVC/H.264, which is a compressed format and not ideal for editing. Plus, expect for Final Cut Pro X, Adobe Premiere Pro CC, the old version Final Cut Pro like FCP 6/7, Adobe Premiere like Premiere Pro CS4/CS5/CS6, Avid Media Composer like Avid MC 4/5/6/7 can’t support 4K video. To edit JI Phantom 3 4K in FCP, Adobe Premiere, Avid MC flawlessly, an ultimate solution is to transcode/compress DJI Phantom 3 4K files for FCP, Premiere, Avid.

To achieve the goal, a professional 4K Video Converter is what you need. Featured with the most advanced converting technology, Brorsoft 4K Video Converter for Mac is the optimal choice for you. It provides hundreds of output format presets for 4K videos, such as DNxHD for Avid, Apple ProRes for Final Cut Pro, MPEG-2 for Adobe Premiere, Apple InterMediate Codec for iMovie, etc. Besides, this 4K converter is also available to customize the output resolutions to any size like 1080p, 2K, 4K as users want. If you are working on Windows(Windows 8 included), please turn to Brorsoft Video Converter. Download the tool and start the 4K video conversion.

Convert DJI Phantom 3 4K to FCP/Premiere Pro/Avid MC for editing

Step 1. Add video files to the software

Install the Mac 4K Converter program and run it. Drag the DJI Phantom 3 4K .mov files to the software. Or you can also click "Add" button on the top of the main interface to import video to the program.

Step 2. Choose output format

Hit the Format box to select the specially designed video codec for editing 4K footage in Final Cut Pro, Avid Media Composer and Adobe Premiere Pro.

a. For importing DJI Phantom 3 4K to Final Cut Pro X/7, you can choose "Final Cut Pro> Apple PreRes 422(*.mov)" as output format.

b. To import DJI Phantom 3 4K to Adobe Premiere Pro, just choose Adobe Premiere/Sony Vegas -> MPEG-2(*.mpg) as output format.

c. To edit 4K video in Avid Media Composer, you are recommended to choose "Avid Media Composer -> DNxHD (*.mov)" as the target format.

Step 3. Video/Audio settigs

If you'd like to customize advanced audio and video parameters like Video Codec, aspect ratio, bit rate, frame rate, Audio codec, sample rate, audio channels, please turn to "Settings" page. Usually 1080p is the optimal setting for using in Final Cut Pro, Avid MC and Premiere Pro. You can downscale DJI Phantom 3 4K to 1080p.
