How to Import and Edit DJI Mavic Pro 4K with FCP X?

digisns76 No Comments

As one of the most feature-packed drones on the market right now, the DJI Mavic Pro equipped with a 4K camera that allows you to shoots 4K video (up to 4096 x 2160) at 30 frames per second in an MO wrapper with MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 compression codec. For Mac users who try to edit the DJI Mavic Pro 4K video with Final Cut Pro X, you may encounter many problems during the video importing and editing process, the following article will illustrate them for you with great details.

DJI Mavic Pro 4K

Can Final Cut Pro X support DJI Mavic 4K Video

From Final Cut Pro X supported file formats, we can see that you will have no problem to load DJI Mavic Pro H.264 video into FCP X, in addition, Final Cut Pro X also includes perfect capability for handling 4K video. However, you should take the following two problems into consideration:
1. Can you work H.264 natively with FCP X?
2. How about editing 4K on a slow Mac computer?

Can you work H.264 native with FCP X?

The fact is that native editing of 4K H.264 with FCP X won’t ensure you get a good result since H.264 is an outstanding distribution format, but it is not a good editing format. If you try to edit H.264 in FCP X natively, you will start to lose image quality as you do color correction or composite gradients to create greenscreen keys. There just isn’t a lot of room to work.

To fix this problem, it would be much ideal for you to transcode H.264 to a a higher bit-rate format like FCP X’s high performance and high quality editing codec – Apple Prores, which can render faster and have more room, so you can create great looking effects without losing any quality.

To generate Prores codec from DJI Phatom 4 4K H.264, you can have a try at Pavtube HD Video Converter for Mac (best HD Video Converter for Mac Review), which helps to directly wrap DJI Phantom 4 4K H.264 video to FCP X best favorable editing format Apple Prores in various different file types. You can choose proper Prores format to output according to the following standards:

If you computer is old or slow, or you just want to do some rough editing, you can select to output “Apple Prores Proxy)(*.mov)”or “Apple Prores (LT)(*.mov)”format to save more space and bandwidth. However, if your computer are powerful enough to handle multicam and high-resolution video and you are going to do many effects editing work with FCP X, you’d better choose to output “Apple Prores 422(*.mov)”or “Apple Prores 422(HQ)(*.mov)”for better performance.

Editing DJI Mavic Pro 4K on slow Mac computer

When it comes to exporting 4K video, the MacBook shines due to Intel Quick Sync Video hardware encoding. Editing 4K video, however, is much more taxing on the MacBook, especially when employing various effects and color correction.

Thankfully, Final Cut Pro X has built-in features that allow users to edit 4K video on even the most anemic of systems. In this post, we’ll show you how to leverage proxy media in order to successfully edit video on an underpowered Mac.

Proxy media significantly enhances playback performance in Final Cut Pro X’s viewer by lowering the video quality to one-half resolution. In Final Cut Pro, proxy media is converted to Apple’s ProRes 422 Proxy format.

You can directly create Proxy Media with FCP X. There are multiple ways to create Proxy media in Final Cut Pro X: You can do so upon initial media import, or you can do so after media is imported.

On the media import screen, you’ll see an option under the Transcoding section to create proxy media. Ensure that this option is checked to convert all imported videos to proxy media right after import.

 Create proxy media on import

The second way to create proxy media can be employed after media is imported. Simply right-click on the media that you wish to convert to proxy media, select Transcode Media and check the box next to Create proxy media and click OK. You can also create proxy media via the Info tab in the Inspector.

Create proxy media after imported

Tips: You can also use our program to compress DJI Mavic Pro 4K to 1080p or create a Apple Prores Proxy file for smooth editing with Final Cut Pro X.

Step by Step to Transcode DJI Mavic Pro 4K for Final Cut Pro X Editing

Step 1: Transfer DJI Mavic Pro 4K video to Mac computer.

The DJI Mavic Pro 4K records footage on an SD card, you can remove the SD card from the camera, insert the SD card to a card reader, then plug in the card reader into your Mac computer SD card Port for transferring the video footage to your Mac local hard drive.

Step 2: Import DJI Mavic Pro 4K videos.

From “File”drop-down option, select “add Video/Audio”to add source DJI Mavic Pro 4K video files to the program.

Load DJI Mavic Pro 4K video

Step 3: Select output file format.

Click “Format”bar, from its drop-down list, select your desired Prores format such as “Final Cut Pro” > “Apple Prores 422(*.mov)”, you can also choose other prores formats on your own needs.

Define output file format

Tips: If you have a underpowered Mac computer, you can also use our program to produce and output “Apple Prores 422(Proxy)(*.mov)” or “Apple Prores 422(LT)(*.mov)” for enhanced 4K playback performance in FCP X.

Output Prores Proxy or LT format

Step 4: Start the conversion process.

After all the setting is over, go back to the main interface and hit right-bottom “Convert” button to start to convert DJI Mavic Pro 4K video to FCP X supported editing formats.

Create Proxy Media with Premeire Pro CC

Benefits of creating proxy media with Premiere Pro CC

The latest Premiere Pro CC now provides an incredibly powerful proxy workflow that makes editing of 4K media a breeze. This is typically used to create lower-resolution clips for increased performance during editing, which can be switched back to the original full resolution files for final output. The file path where the proxies are generated is specified by the Proxy Destination option in the settings, and the format is specified by the chosen preset. After proxies have been generated, they are automatically attached to the clips in the project.

Steps by create proxy media with Premiere Pro CC

You can create proxies directly from items in the project panel. Choose Create Proxis from the project panel context menu to open the Create Proxies dialog. The menu item is enabled when one or more items in the panel are selected that can be proxied. Premiere Pro can create proxies for master clip project items if they have video, have no captions, and are not growing files. The media must also be online.

Create Proxy dialog

In the Create Proxies dialog you can choose one of several built-in presets to use when transcoding high-resolution originals to create proxies. You can also add presets created in Adobe Media Encoder by clicking the Add Ingest Preset button. You can also choose to create proxies in a “Proxies” directory next to the original media, or in a custom location.

Proxy media creation process

If you allow the progress dialog box to complete, a proxy job is created in Adobe Media Encoder for each of the project items chosen that can be proxied, and an offline proxy is attached to each project item. You can monitor the progress of these jobs in the Premiere Pro Progress panel, or in Adobe Media Encoder.
While the jobs are processed, you can continue to work with the corresponding high-resolution project items in Premiere Pro. When the proxy jobs complete, Premiere Pro automatically switches to displaying the proxy video in the Timeline if Enable Proxies is enabled in the Media preferences panel.

Premiere Pro does not need to remain open while proxy jobs are processed in Adobe Media Encoder. If you quit Premiere Pro before all jobs are complete, any proxies created while Premiere Pro is not running are attached when Premiere Pro is launched and the document is reopened.

Proxy media significantly enhances playback performance in Final Cut Pro X’s viewer by lowering the video quality to one-half resolution. In Final Cut Pro, proxy media is converted to Apple’s ProRes 422 Proxy format.

You can directly create Proxy Media with FCP X. There are multiple ways to create Proxy media in Final Cut Pro X: You can do so upon initial media import, or you can do so after media is imported.

On the media import screen, you’ll see an option under the Transcoding section to create proxy media. Ensure that this option is checked to convert all imported videos to proxy media right after import.

Create Proxy media on import

The second way to create proxy media can be employed after media is imported. Simply right-click on the media that you wish to convert to proxy media, select Transcode Media and check the box next to Create proxy media and click OK. You can also create proxy media via the Info tab in the Inspector.

Edit 4K XAVC S with FCP 7

Since FCP 7 is not compatible with 4K XAVC S, you will need to compress and convert RX100 V 4K XAVC S to FCP 7 editable file formats. Here, we highly recommend Pavtube HD Video Converter for Mac, which can assist you to efficiently produce FCP compatible editing formats such as H.264, Apple Prores, DV, QuickTime, etc. For those people who wish to get a high quality and high performance editing workflow with FCP 7, you can also use the program to encode 4K XAVC S to Apple Prores in various different file types.
