For novice editors and consumers who are looking for a cross-platform editing software that offers a lot more features and lots of help with creating effects for your DJI Osmo+ 4K video editing, Adobe Premiere Elements can be a good choice. How about the workflow of DJI Osmo+ 4K video with Premiere Elements?

Specification of DJI Osmo+ 4K video

From the specification page of DJI Osmo+ 4K, we get the information that the DJI Osmo+ shots both DCI and UHD 4K video in either MP4 or MOV container file format with the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 compression codec.

Does Premiere Elements support 4K video editing?

When Adobe announced Premiere Elements 14 in 2015, one of the great new features is its initial support for 4K Ultra HD. It also means that Premiere Elements 14 and its later versions are now capable of importing and editing 4K Ultra HD material. However, it is well known that 4K video editing is very processor intensive, if you don’t own a powerful computer, you will often encounter computer crashing issue or 4K vide stuttering or lagging issues when viewing them on the timeline of Premiere Elements. In that condition, it would be a good option to compress 4K to 1080p with smaller file resolution for smooth editing workflow.

Can Premiere Elements native import DJI Osmo+ H.264 MP4/MOV video?

After searching for Premiere Elements supported file formats, we can see that it has included importing support for both H.264 MP4 files and H.264 encoded QuickTime MOV files. However, it is well known that H.264 is a good delivery file format, but not a good editing format. Therefore, for those people who wish to get a high quality and high performance editing workflow, it would be much ideal for you to transcode Osmo+ H.264 to Premiere Elements more friendly editing format or codec such as WMV or MPEG-2.
