Prepare DJI Phantom 2/3/4 4K Videos for Editing in Windows Movie Maker

Summary: Have trouble importing DJI Phantom 4/3/2 4K footage into Windows Movie Maker for further editing? Don't worry! This article aims to share you with a smooth workflow of editing DJI Phantom 4/3/2 4K video files in Windows Movie Maker.

DJI Phantom series, as a wonderful aerial camera, has gained great compliments throughout the world. Until now, its fourth generation DJI Phantom 4 has come into us, holding tremendous progress on various aspects than its predecessor: longer flight time, more stabilized 4K video capture and smarter design. However, the drawback is also obvious as those stunning 4K videos from DJI Phantom 4/3/2 are difficult handling with many editing software. Provided that you attempt to transfer DJI 4K footage into Windows Movie Maker for further editing, chances are you would encounter some annoying issues as below:

"I recorded a video using DJI Phantom 4 4K camera. BUT every time I try to open the 4k files with Window Movie Maker (ie to edit etc) it crashes – any solution for me?"

"I got some 4K MP4 videos recorded from DJI Phantom 3, it's amazing and desirable, but when importing them into Windows Movie Maker for further editing, some annoying things happened: they are very choopy and even don't recognized by Windows Movie Maker, what's wrong with that?"

In fact, no matter MP4 or MOV videos recorded from DJI Phantom are both incompatible with Windows Movie Maker, as a compressed output format and they are not ideal for editing in most NLEs including Windows Movie Maker. In addition, currently Windows Movie Maker lacks support for 4K videos. To solve those problems, the quick workaround is to transcode Phantom 4K/H.264 MOV/MP4 files to Windows Movie Maker natively supported formats (WMV/AVI are highly recommended) in 1080p.

That's where Brorsoft Video Converter comes in: It supports converting DJI Phantom MOV/MP4 files to Windows Movie Maker highly compatible WMV or AVI format in 1080p without quality loss. Besides, it also supports the decent outputs for Avid MC, Adobe Premier Pro, Davinci Resolve, Sony Vegas, Pinnacle Studio and more to meet different needs. Just download it and follow the step-by-step guide to transcode DJI Phantom MOV/MP4 files for editing in Window Movie Maker smoothly.
