DJI Osmo

It is well know that DJI Osmo record 4K video in MOV container file format compressed with MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 codec, although Premiere Pro CC 2015 has the ability to hand 4K video and also provides native import support for H.264 AVC codec used by DJI Osmo 4K video. However, you may find the post video editing workflow is not that satisfatory in the following two aspects:
1. H.264 codec is very process-intensive, and the process of decoding H.264 will require a lot of processing power and therefore it will cost a long time to decoding the codec.
2. H.264 codec uses much higher compression ratio than other codec, you will suffer a lot of quality loss to editing directly with this codec.
