Transcode DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ Video to Avid Media Composer

Posted by on Tuesday, 2 June, 2015

Summary: Have you ever run into a situation where you can’t edit H.264 MP4 files from DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ in Avid Media Composer. In this part we’ll look at how Avid MC works with H.264 MP4 video clips, and how you can import them for smooth editing.

dji Transcode DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ Video to Avid Media Composer

The Phantom 2 Vision+ Quadcopter with Gimbal-Stabilized 14MP, 1080p Camera from DJI is based on the same air frame as the Phantom 2 and Phantom 2 Vision. Unlike its siblings, however, it features a 14 MP camera that is stabilized and controlled with an integrated 3-axis gimbal. Gimbal stabilization makes the Phantom 2 Vision+ ideal for shooting aerial footage and photos. The camera can take 14 MP, Adobe DNG RAW photos, and can record video in 1080p Full HD at 30 fps or 720p at 60 fps for creating slow motion effects.

Recently on many editing forums, both Avid Media Composer newbies and professionals have come across the same annoying problem when importing DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ recorded H.264 MP4 to Avid: “I have some MP4 videos that were originally recorded with the H.264 codec. The client wants these DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ videos to be imported to Avid MC for editing. Is there an easy way to do this without going through the lengthy process of re-transcoding? There are 3 one-hour videos.”

Though Avid Media Composer allows you to import MP4 video, things may sometimes go wrong when working with H.264 codec in Avid MC. In fact, H.264 is the ubiquitous codec, and it looks like it will stay for quite some time. Avid Media Composer supports H.264 via AMA Link. Well, if you failed on this try, another solution is introduced. From Avid Media Composer official website you will learn that DNxHD codec was developed by Avid technology, and it is natively supported by Avid Media Composer. So the second method is to convert H.264 MP4 to DNxHD for Avid editing with the assistance of Pavtube Video Converter for Mac. If you are running on Windows, you can choose the equivalent version- Pavtube Video Converter. No matter what version, both of them have fast conversion speed and high quality preserved.

But, different cameras record videos in different video formats, such as H.264 MOV, MTS, M2TS, MXF and etc. Today, we’ll talk about how to import P2 MXF files to Avid Media Composer 8 for editing on Mac.

As we know, P2 media is recorded in MXF format, and it offers a variety of formats to choose from (DV, DVCPRO, DVCPRO 50, DVCPRO HD, and AVC-Intra 50 and AVC-Intra 100), differing in bit depth (8 or 10 bits), scanning mode (Progressive or Interlaced) and also frame rate. No matter which P2 camcorder you are now having like AJ-HPX2100, AJ-HPX2700, AJ-HPX3000, and AJ-HPX3700, etc you probably would like to edit the recorded P2 MXF footage with an editing program, for example Avid Media Composer 8. While different problems occurred:

“I had no idea that MC8 currently doesn’t support P2 or XDCAM with AMA – Best I can tell Sony or Panasonic has not released updated drivers that support MC8 – My drivers for MC5.5 worked just fine with MC5.5 – but when I visit the update page – no drivers for MC8 are found.”

“I have a problem importing .mxf files into my Avid Media Composer 8. Now with MC 8 I only have the import option, and any attempt to just import the files end up with an error message saying that I cannot import the file into a bin, and that I should check documentation.”

Problems as you see, the main reason is that MXF is not a natively supported format for Avid Media Composer. It will bring more difficulty to play and edit these files in Avid MC 8 on Mac. So, the best choice is to convert P2 MXF files to Avid MC best accepted format, which ensures maximum editing quality and efficiency when working with Avid Media Composer.

The hottest Samsung NX1 has already support the H.265/HEVC videos shooting! And the problems we face may be: How to edit NX1 H.265 videos on Non-linear Editing Systems like Avid Media Composer 8? How to convert H.265 to Avid MC best supported format with superb video quality? Come here! You can get all answers!

theme4 Edit Samsung NX1 H.265 in Avid Media Composer 8 on Mac

As one of the top camcorders that can shoot H.265/HEVC recordings, Samsung NX1 has come out of the blue with an impressive spec sheet. It probably shouldn’t have been a complete surprise because the “Galaxy” phone company has always been serious about cameras. It’s just that, until now, they didn’t necessarily tick all the right boxes for professionals. But this is the first footage we’ve seen from it, and it looks lovely. We don’t know yet what it’s like working with the H.265 output but it’s a fair bet that it will be best to convert this to some other intermediate codec, as H.265 is very compute-intensive.

H.265/HEVC, the newest codec that can bring us much than H.264, is an unexpected but potentially path-breaking announcement. It will take several weeks or months to confirm just what advantages or virtues it offers. Presently, I’m not sure what CPU requirements will be to edit or play h.265. The Cyberlink PowerDirector editing product may already support some h.265, or it will shortly. Until now, it seems that Avid Media Composer has no abilities of handling H.265 videos. So, how to import H.265 to Avid MC for editing?

If you are scratching your heads trying to convert H.265 to Avid MC, the only way we’ve find so far to edit NX1 H.265/HEVC in Avid Media Composer natively is to use a third party converter to transcode NX1 H.265 footage to a format that is fully compatible with your editing programs before start.
