Aloha drone,

     Download the GoPro Studio software.  It is free.  It will convert your video to a .mov and then you can convert it to whatever you want.

Aloha and Drone On!

The recorded MOV/MP4 files are compressed using the h.264 codec, which is final delivery codec and it is not one you want to use for editing. Plus, granted, Premiere Pro CS6, CC can handle (usually) 4K files without much problem, but it is extremely hardware intensive. On this circumstance, if you are stick to editing Phantom 4K videos in Premiere Pro, you'd better convert them to a more editing-friendly format in 1080p.

Actually, it's not as difficult as you imagine. What's need is a just a common video converter like Brorsoft Video Converter for Mac - The program works as the best Mac DJI Video Converter. It helps you fast transcode DJI Phantom 4, DJI Phantom 3, DJI Phantom 2 footage to Premiere Pro preferred MPEG-2 in 1080p with fast encoding speed and without quality loss.

Hi,
One of the standard/pro solution is that in fact you not often edit your footage in native resolution (4k) due to big resources usage ! You need to use proxy media un der Adobe Premiere Pro CC. It's a process that  generate low resolution footage (it's a copy of the original footage but a an lower resolution), you edit and you can switch in realtime between the low and the full resolution file ! When you export your video the native (full) resolution is automatically and always used !

It takes juste some time to generate proxy video but after it's a real gain.

Enjoy ;-)

Granted, Premiere Pro CS6, CC 7 can handle (usually) 4K files without much problem, but it is extremely hardware intensive.  You can have a try to encode the videos first before editing.
