Summary: Have trouble of editing Blade Chroma 4K video files in Avid Media Composer? Just follow the post to get some tips and tricks.

"Can you help me to edit Blade Chroma 4k files with Avid Media Composer natively? I borrowed the newly released Blade Chroma camera from my friend and recorded a lot of videos recently, now I need to edit the footages in Avid Media Composer, I tried to load and edit them, but I found the files can't be handled smoothly, it is hard to edit the original 4K footages with Blade Chroma. Any suggestion is appreciated, thanks!"

This is the Ready-to-Fly(RTF)version of the Chroma Camera Drone from Blade, which includes the ST-10+ transmitter/personal ground station combination. It incorporates the CGO3-GB, a 3-axis ginbal-stabilized able to capture 4K video, 1080p video at up to 120 fps, and shoots photos at 12-megapixels. Photos can be captured in JPEG or DNG RAW and it is possible to snap photos while recording video.

However, based on our multiple testing, 4K video from Blade Chroma CGO3 is not supported well for editing in Avid Media Composer. On the other hand, working 4K raw with Avid Media Composer is usually very taxing on your computer. On this case, to ensure a smooth workflow of importing and editing Blade Chroma 4K footage in Avid Media Composer, a recommeded suggestion is to transcode/compress 4K to DNxHD for Avid Media Composer in 1080p.

To finish the task, Brorsoft Video Converter for Mac is the optimal choice for you!
