Due to lack of recognition and to investment shortage, the environmental protection infrastructure construction used to lag behind the development of cities, which caused severe water pollution. I’m making a promotional film about environmental protection. DJI Mavic 2 Pro have helped me a lot, and I’ve taken a lot of valuable material. I can play the 4K H.265 videos on my MacBook Pro well, but I can’t cut it in iMovie. Should I edit the 4K material via Final Cut Pro X? Considering that later synthesis requires some special effects, I may use After Effects CC. Can I edit the Mavic 2 Pro 4K videos in these ediitng software smoothly? – Jessica Mecham
DJI is a Chinese technology company headquartered in Shenzhen, Guangdong with manufacturing facilities throughout the world. It is known as a manufacturer of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), commonly known as drones, for aerial photography and videography. The company released a new model – Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Pro Zoom. For the Mavic 2 Pro, DJI partnered with high-end camera-maker Hasselblad to build a camera with a one-inch sensor. It’s much better in low-light, and its max ISO (that’s the sensor’s sensitivity) jumps from 3200 to 12,800. The Pro can also shoot 10-bit 4K Dlog-M at 100Mbps. It support the advanced H.265/HEVC codec, which maintains 50% more information than videos in H.264/AVC, preserving more details. That’s basically like shooting RAW video. When you first look at the footage it’s kind of flat and gray, but it’s retaining a huge amount of information.
From its specs, we know DJI Mavic 2 Pro can capture H.265/HEVC files in 4K, 2.7K and Full HD recording resolutions. Something frustrating is that 4K H.265 files are beyond the compatibility of editing software, including iMovie, FCP X, After Effects CC, Premiere Pro CC, Sony Vegas Pro 16, etc. The basic reason is due to the ultra high video resolution and codec incompatibility. You can’t get a flawless workflow in most cases.
