DJI 4K to FCP Workflow – Transcode DJI Inspire 2 4K footage for FCP importing

The DJI Inspire 2 is tougher and more powerful than the original Inspire 1. It comes with a completely new generation of cameras, giving you not only RAW via Adobe cinemaDNG (at 4.2 Gbit/s), but also H.264 and H.265. While, if we want to import and edit DJI Inspire 2 4K in FCP, the result may let you down- these popular video editing programs won’t open the 4K footage like H.265 from Inspire 2 correctly. So, what’s the solution?

Well, H.264 or H.265 based 4K videos format from DJI Inspire 2 are beyond the compatibility of Final Cut Pro. Thus, you can’t get a flawless 4K workflow in most cases.
