4K video not real smooth

    When I record 1080p 60p, the video is buttery smooth and looks great. When I try to record 4K, it seems to have more some jitter anytime movement in introduced either by aircraft movement or gimbal movement. In a still hover, everything looks good. I've tried a couple of different 4K settings on the app but both has this artifact. I'm using the micro-SD card that DJI provided with the Inspire1.

    Just looking for some thoughts and advice from those who have had great success shooting 4K with movement.

    most likely you need a faster computer to play back 4k files smoothly

    Agreed, also the software makes a difference. QT on my 2009 MP with a pretty badarse video card cant handle it. Put it in Premiere and its perfect.

    4k is 30p, not 60p... hence the difference.

    No...30 and 24 play just fine with enough horsepower.

    Yes but they will never be "buttery smooth" like the 60p footage he uses as reference. HFR is nice for that, but then you lose the "cinematic" feel that comes in good part from the slow framerate.
