By | August 5, 2017

“Hello, I just purchased a DJI Phantom 4 Pro+ Professional camera, when I import the 4K video into Premiere Pro, it looks blurry and pixely. However, when I view the same video out of the folder that it resides in, the video looks amazing. What am I doing wrong? I’m assuming I’m doing something wrong during the import process. Any suggestions? Thank you!”
