Simple Guide : Convert and Import DJI Phantom 3 4K to FCP X/7/X

Step 1. Install the Mac 4K Converter program and run it. Drag the 4K .mov files to the software. Or you can also click "Add" button on the top of the main interface to import video to the program.

Step 2. Choose ProRes as output format

Click the "Format" bar and select Final Cut Pro> Apple PreRes 422(*.mov) as output format.

3. Adjust video, audio settings

Click the "Settings" button and customize proper video/audio parameters including Video size, bitrate and fame rate and mroe. Usually 1920*1080 video size and 30fps video frame rate are recommended for FCP editing. Well, if you prefer to work with 4K video, you can adjust video size to get 4K ProRes for FCP.

4. Start conversion

After all necessary settings, hit the convert button to start the DJI Phantom 3 4K video to ProRes conversion on Mac OS X. Once the conversion process shows in 100%, click Open to get the output videos. Create a project and start editing DJI Phantom 3 4K MP4/MOV videos in FCP 6/7/X with light speed.

When the conversion is completed, launch FCP X/6/7, go to "File" > "Import" > "Media" to add the converted prores files to FCP X/6/7 for further professional editing. You do not need to check "Create Optimized Media" or "Create Proxy Media" option since we already converted the media to ProRes which means Final Cut Pro X can use the footage without "optimizing" it. Checking this box would create a redundant and time consuming second transcode of your footage.
