Today we talk about how to solve can’t import and edit DJI Phantom 4 4K with Sony Movie Studio 13.
Why an DJI Phantom 4 4K video file cannot be imported to Sony Movie Studio 13?
1. Hardware issue or codec issue.
First make sure your computer is powerful enough and has enough disk space as Sony Movie Studio requires your computer be powerful enough and have enough disk space for video editing. That's to say, if your source files are quite large and you won't have enough space on the output folder, Sony Movie Studio will not import Phantom 4 4K MP4/MOV files.
2. Unsupported audio and video codecs packed in the MP4/MOV container
MP4 is widely used for saving media data and can be found in lots of places online or off line. In general, Sony Movie Studio (13) supports MP4/MOV format. However, users who want to edit MP4 videos with Sony Movie Studio usually run into incompatibility issues. Why? Actually, this is due to the MP4 and MOV files codec: Sony Movie Studio (13) prefer MPEG-4 and H.264 codecs instead of H.265 MP4 or others. If your MP4/MOV files are rejected by Sony Movie Studio, it's most likely the codecs in MP4/MOV files are unaccepted by Sony Movie Studio.
Method: Convert DJI Phantom 4 4K MOV/MP4 to Sony Movie Studio supported video WMV, AVI, MP4, MPEG-2, DV
To fix the problem, a more practical way recommended online is to transcode MP4 to a more editing-friendly format for Sony Movie Studio. Once you have, you can add them to Sony Movie Studio (13) and use MP4 like any other file Sony Movie Studio supports.
