Getting caught by editing issues when importing DJI Mavic Pro 4K footage in FCP X/7/6? Simply follow this tutorial to find the easiest solution. 

DJI is one of the leading drone manufacturers to put cameras in the sky and their amazingly capable Mavic Pro is one of the easiest drones to take to the sky. Speaking of the camera, the Mavic Pro houses a camera capable of recording high-resolution 4K videos at 30 fps in MOV wrapper encoded with MPEG-4 AVC/H.264. After recording some stunning 4K footage by DJI Mavic Pro, you may wanna edit these 4K videos in Final Cut Pro so as to make them more stylish. However, when you import DJI Mavic Pro 4K in FCP X/7/6, things get a bit complex. So, here offers an easy workaround to help you work with Mavic Pro 4K files in FCP on macos Sierra smoothly. 

It is a pity that Apple's Final Cut Pro- FCP X (below 10.2 version), FCP 7 hardly supports 4K files from Mavic Pro. If you want to have a smooth DJI Mavic Pro 4K to FCP workflow, you are advised to convert Mavic Pro 4K video to ProRes in 1080p settings for further editing in FCP 6/7 and Final Cut Pro X at first. 

With the help of Dimo Video Converter Ultimate for Mac, you can easily achieve the goal. With the professional 4K video converter for Mac, you can effortlessly encode DJI Mavic Pro 4K MP4/MOV footage for smoothly importing and editing in various non-linear editing systems (NLEs), including FCP, Adobe Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer, Premiere Pro, iMovie, Davinci Resolve and more.
