DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ Video to PowerDirector 13 Workflow

Summary: With the Phantom 2 Vision+, you can records MP4 formats, but most users may find a problem when converting DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ MP4 to PowerDirector 13 for editing. These MP4 files are clunky to edit requiring much rendering when in a PowerDirector 13 timeline.

As we know, MP4 is widely used for saving media datum. And it can be found in lots of places, such as camcorders (GoPro/Sony or other camcorders), websites (YouTube/Fox or other Video websites) and even the newly aerial apparatus like DJI Phantom 2 Vision+. It is a common video format for users to share.

When you import DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ recorded H.264 MP4 videos to PowerDirector, you may get the error message below: “An error occurred while opening this media file in the media library. It may be because the file is broken, an unsupported format, protected video content, or for another reason.”

Solution 1: If your imported file is placed under the path which using Unicode folder name (for example: Chinese, Japanese, Korean…) and have Apple QuickTime 7.7 version installed, you will encounter the problem. This is because the data structure in new QuickTime version has changed. First, name your folders/files in English. And then re-install QuickTime software. It could fix the issue.

Solution 2: If you still can’t resolve the problem, this could happen because of the different codec in a number of MP4 files as CyberLink PowerDirector (even the latest PowerDirector 13) might not support all of these codecs. If you’re in such a situation, there is an easy way to fix the issue. Get an MP4 converter, and Pavtube Video Converter is highly recommended, and transcode .mp4 files to MPEG-2, which will save you both time and trouble, and all you need is to drag the result videos for prompt editing. Supported file fomats for CyberLink PowerDirector 13 is for your information.
