Import/Edit DJI Osmo+ 4K to Avid

The Osmo+ features a 4K camera capable of capturing DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) resolution at 24/25 fps, Ultra HD 4K (3840 x 2160) at up to 30 fps in either MP4 or MOV container file format with MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 compression codec. Wish to load DJI Osmo+ 4K to Avid Media Composer for some professional post editing workflow after the shooting stage, but have no idea how to get a high quality and high performance editing workflow, just read on...

Can Avid Media Composer handle 4K video?

Only the Media Composer 8.31 can edit 4K resolutions. It also means that you will get no success to edit 4K video with the previous version. In addition, Avid's system requirements for 4K editing are quite high. You should have a dual 10 core Xeon system as an "entry level" 4K editing suite and a faster computer for more 4K editing. For those people who wish to get the best editing workflow of 4K with Avid, it would be much ideal for you to use Avid's own 4K codec - DNxHR, which can perfectly handle 4K file sizes. Alternatively, you can choose to edit with the Proxy modes, which helps to drop your footage to a resolution which your system can cope with.
