Working DJI Inspire 2 4K Video in FCP/Adobe Premiere Pro/Avid MC

DJI’s magnesium-aluminum-clad Inspire 2 Quadcopter is a powerful cinematic and photographic tool. Combining the Inspire 2 with the separately available X4S and X5S gimbal cameras yields cinema-grade images, which can be recorded in high bit rates using H.264 and H.265 formats, or, in the case of the X5R, various flavors of Apple ProRes and CinemaDNG raw using the required licenses available from DJI. All the recording functionality is processed by the Inspire 2’s CineCore 2.0 image processing engine. While, if we want to import and edit DJI Inspire 2 4K in FCP/Premiere/Avid, the result may let you down- these popular video editing programs won’t open the 4K footage from DJI Inspire 2 correctly. So, what’s the solution?

Actually, H.265 encoded MP4 or MOV file format from DJI Inspire 2 is beyond the compatibility of FCP, Adobe Premiere Pro and Avid Media Composer.
