Is it possible to import Zenmuse X5 and X5R 4K videos to iMovie?

DJI recently announced their new ZENMUSE X5 and ZENMUSE X5R of Micro Four Thirds Cameras for the Inspire 1 drone system. Featuring increased dynamic range, interchangeable lens compatibility, remote focus and aperture control, and lossless RAW 4K video recording, the ZENMUSE X5 series is ready to take on the high-performance world of aerial photography with two distinct models.

After recording 4K video footage with the two aerial cameras, you may wish to polish the video with some NLE editing program such as iMovie on Mac. But iMovie doesn’t read 4K video with H.265/4K MXF/RAW/XAVC codec perfectly, you may encounter video disordered, picture stunning and some other problems. What should we do to edit Zenmuse X5 X5R 4k video in iMovie smoothly?

The easiest workaround is to convert Zenmuse X5 and X5R 4K footage to a more editing-friendly format, such Apple InterMediate Codec for iMovie. The process is surprisingly easy and can be done with the help of Pavtube 4K Video Converter for Mac. The program lets you convert Zenmuse X5 X5R 4k video to AIC encoded MOV, which ensures maximum editing quality and efficiency when importing videos to iMovie (no matter iMovie HD, iMovie 08, iMovie 09, or iMovie 11) in a few clicks.
