Edit DJI Mavic 3/3 Cine MP4 files in DaVinci Resolve
Drones are fun. It doesn’t matter if we’re flying them or looking at drone photos and videos, there’s still that sense of wonder and awe as earthbound humans. The DJI Mavic 3 is a spectacular piece of equipment, seemingly blasting past the limits of battery length, sensor size, safety and more. The standard and Cine models share most of their hardware, but with the more expensive ‘Cine’ version adding 1TB of internal memory and the ability to capture using the ProRes 422 HQ codec.
DJI boosted the H.264 data rate significantly from 100 Mbps to 200 Mbps, and introduced H.265 capture at up to 140 Mbps. That’s an important update, as aerial footage captured by drones can have detail that confounds long-GOP (MP4) compression.
What is an MP4 file?
A file with the .mp4 file extension is an MPEG-4 video file format. An MP4 file is a multimedia file that stores a movie or video clip and may also contain subtitles, images, and metadata which commonly used by camcorders and digital cameras such as DJI, Sony, GoPro, Canon, and Panasonic. These digital devices make use of MP4, a recording format made specifically for. MP4 files are used primarily with DJI drones, while some Panasonic camera models also use MP4 files. If you often use DJI Mavic 3 or Mavic 3 Cine, you need to learn about MP4 video files.
