Actually, I use imovie exclusively, it works very nice editing 4K videos as long as the computer can handle it. If you’re on an old computer, you’d better get a new Macbook Pro or try to compress your 4K to 1080p for easier using. As for DJI Phantom 4 4K footage, due to its H.264 codec, Adobe Premiere Pro CC/CS doesn’t like the file type. That’s the reason why Premiere Pro won’t import the MP4 files.
