How to import DJI Inspire 1 4K video to FCP X video editing program? DJI Inspire Video Converter will be your ideal choice to convert DJI Inspire 1 4K video. Move on and know more details about it.


DJI Inspire camera can shoot up to 4K video with MOV/MP4 format and capture 12 megapixel photos. The lens consists of 9 separate elements, including an aspherical element, for extreme clarity, while Adobe DNG RAW support gives you the power to make every shot a masterpiece. After recording, users may wanna import these outstanding 4K videos into FCP X for editing. While the problem is, according to my testing, the 4K video was restricted to editing in FCP X, which can’t handle 4K videos well.

“I am doing some Inspire 1 4K video editing. I see my desktop is very powerful. However, when I playback the video in FCP X, it’s very choppy, and not easy to do the editing. Does any pros have any idea on DJI Inspire 1 4K video to FCP X workflow? Much appreciated!”

Whereas, we can’t bring 4K footage from DJI Inspire 1 to FCP X directly due to the codec incompatibility. As we know, Apple ProRes Codec is the best editing video codec for Final Cur Pro, so we can convert DJI Inspire 1 4K video to Apple ProRes codec (1080p would be the best settings.), which will save you both time and trouble, and all you need is to drag the result videos for prompt editing. With the help of Pavtube Video Converter for Mac, you can finish the task easily and quickly.

Overall, the program is a professional 4K Converter, player and editor. It can effortlessly encode/re-encode 4K H.264(MP4/MOV), XAVC, XAVC S, etc footage for smoothly importing and editing in various non-linear editing systems (NLEs), including iMovie, Adobe Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer, Final Cut Pro, FCE and more.
