“I am trying to use iMovie to edit my DJI Phantom 4 4K footage. My files are in .mp4 format and can’t seem to import them. What do I need to convert them to and what conversion program I need? “

As the above user, you may encounter issues when importing DJI Phantom 4 4K files to iMovie/FCE. 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, iMovie and FCE don’t like the file type. That’s the reason why iMovie/FCE won’t import the MP4 files. To solve the issue, you can get a DJI 4K Video Converter to change the 4K H.264 MP4 files to AIC .mov for iMovie/FCE better editing.
