From the DJI Phantom 3 4K camera spec, I got to know it builds 4K videos in MOV wrapper. Generally, Avid Media Composer can support MOV format. But the problem is, the DJI Phantom 3 4K is encoded with MPEG-4 AVC/H.264, which is a compressed format and not ideal for editing. Plus, Avid Media Composer like Avid MC 4/5/6/7 can’t support 4K video. To edit DJI Phantom 3 4K video in Avid MC flawlessly, an ultimate solution is to convert Phantom 3 4K video to DNxHD MOV for Avid.
