“Please help. I’m a complete noob to droning and photography. I watched plenty of videos on YouTube prior to buying my Mavic Pro so I felt confident. Last on my first flight I kept all the settings as standard and took a night video of the skyline in 720p. When I used the DJI GO app to create my video the quality did not look great, then when I uploaded it to YouTube and it downgraded the quality further to 480p. I’m obviously not following the right purpose so please can someone give me a step by step guide on what to do once I’ve recorded the video.”

Will Final Cut Pro support 4K editing?

From Apple’s official page, we get the information that 4K resolution video editing is only available on Final Cut Pro X 10.1 version via HDMI on the following Mac computers:
– Mac Pro (Late 2013)
– MacBook Pro (Retina, Late 2013 and later)
The supported 4K resolutions are as follows. Note that not every 4K monitor will support both of these resolutions, and 4096 x 2160 is only supported via HDMI at 24fps.
4096 x 2160
3840 x 2160

Import 4K to FCP X/7/6

From above listed information, we can conclude that you will have no chance to edit 4K video on the previous version of Final Cut Pro X 10.1 such as Final Cut Pro 7/6. In addition, even you have the latest Final Cut Pro X 10.1 installed, but your Mac computer is not powerful to handle 4K video, you may find it become a challenging task for you to do the 4K video editing on FCP X 4K timeline. The last but most important point, the 4K video should be supported by Final Cut Pro, if not, you can even load the footage into FCP, not to mention to edit the footage with it. The following article will show you how to edit 4K video with Final Cut Pro 6/7, work 4K on slow Mac computer and import unsupported 4K to Final Cut Pro X.

Edit 4K video with FCP 6/7

Since Final Cut Pro 6/7 lacks the ability to handle 4K resolution video, therefore, the best solution is compressing 4K to 1080p. Here, you can get the job easily completed with our powerful Mac 4K Video compressor – Pavtube HD Video Converter for Mac. Which not only helps to output Final Cut Pro X supported HD format but also enables you to adjust the output file resolution as 1920*1080 or 720p with small file resolution for smooth editing with FCP 6/7.

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.

Edit 4K with PPC on slow computer

Benefits of Proxy media for 4K editing in Premiere Pro CC

The process of creating Proxy files is making a copies of the 4k video files at a lower resolution. You then load these lower resolution files in to your Premiere Pro CC and editing using these. Before you export your finished edited video you replace the low-resolution, proxy, files with the full resolution 4K ones. Then all that is left is a final colour edit and to export the final 4K file. With this technique you can edit and export a 4K video even if you don’t have a computer or monitor that is suitable for editing 4K video.

How to create Proxy files 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 files in project panel

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.
