How to Import DJI Phantom 4K videos to Premiere Pro?

Outline: This article is about how to finalize 4K conversion. If you have problem with editing DJI Phantom 4K videos with Premiere Pro, please take few minutes to read it, then you’ll get the solution. 

DJI Phantom is an amazing invention, it can take people’s sight to anywhere in the sky. Most people want to edit DJI Phantom 4K videos in Premiere Pro or other video editing applications on Mac after flying it. However, they always find Premiere Pro doesn’t work for DJI Phantom 4K videos. The quoted content is a feedback from the forum. 

I'm wondering if anyone out there has awful experience with editing 4K footage from Phantom 3 produces in Premiere Pro on Mac. Do you have any suggested export settings to get the most resolution out of the footage - without having to buy a new server. Does Premiere Pro import the footage natively, or does it have to be converted first? Thanks. 

DJI Phantom captures 4K videos encoded in MP4 or MOV (MPEG-4 AVC/H.264) format, and the Frame Rate of these Ultra HD videos is 24/25. Though Frame Rate of DJI Phantom 4K video is normal number, the resolution of 4K videos is 4096x2160P which is four times than 1080P, so the Bit Rate of Ultra HD video becomes very high. Some models of Mac with low definition hardware doesn’t have the ability to process high Bit Rate 4K videos smoothly, so somebody have bad experience with editing 4K footage in Premiere Pro.
