The DJI FPV is mainly aimed at shooting immersive FPV 4K video, and there is the ability to shoot still images at a basic level. The advantage of shooting video with an FPV drone is that you can achieve the exhilarating first-person view that almost makes the viewer feel like they’re flying. The DJI FPV is capable of shooting 4K video up to 60fps and can also shoot 1080p at 120fps, which for the most part looks great. The footage format is MOV/MP4 via H.264/AVC, H.265/HEVC codec.
Many video editing software support H.264 video coding. Although it takes a long time to render video, we can barely edit these 4K or HD videos. If you plan to import and edit DJI FPV H.265 50/60 fps .mp4 or .mov footage in Adobe Premiere Pro CC, chances are things will go wrong.
“I recently upgraded from Premiere Pro CC to the latest, hoping for a way to use 4K files from my DJI FPV Drone. It produces H.265 MP4 files, but I get an error message when importing them into a project. Did you meet such issue? Do you have any workflow of DJI FPV footage in Premiere Pro CC to me?”
As you see, DJI FPV captures 4K videos in either MP4 / MOV file format. But the problem is, the MP4 or MOV file format from DJI FPV is beyond the compatibility of Premiere Pro CC. What’s more, although it has been possible to create 4K timelines in Premiere Pro CC, smooth editing of 4K H.265 recordings in Premiere Pro CC still requires instant playback of more than one stream of video footage at once. In order to work DJI FPV H.265 videos with Premiere Pro CC smoothly, my way of working around the issue was to encode H.265/HEVC files into H.264 codec with a professional third party program – Acrok Video Converter Ultimate for Mac.
