DJI is preparing some model files for precise Lens distortion correction for ProRes, until then I would like to provide a workflow for two common tools.

Adobe Premiere
In Premiere, the suggested way to do predefined lens correction is through Effect Preset file. The file we supplied for Inspire 1 is embedded in Premiere 2017

The preset file hooks Premiereís built in effect Lens Distortion, assign its values for Inspire 2 movie clips to start with. User should add that effect manually

DaVinci Resolve 12.5+
A new lens correction feature was added. Itís in Edit->Inspector. See screenshot below. It has only one parameter named distortion, works much like Curvature in PRís lens distortion effect. Bad thing currently is thereís no good way input or see what the preset value in DaVinci Resolve would be. Positive is DaVinci can calculate this value automatically with analysis. Works great if image contains some straight lines.

The Inspire 1 was a revelation. The first filmmaking drone in the world to integrate an HD video transmission system, 360į rotating gimbal and a 4K camera, as well as the simplicity of app control. The launches of the Zenmuse X5 and X5R cameras further cemented the Inspire as a critical tool for filmmakers around the globe.

The Inspire 2 takes everything that was good about the Inspire 1 and improves it. An all-new image processing system records at up to 5.2K in CinemaDNG RAW, Apple ProRes and more. It goes from 0 to 50mph (80kph) in just 5 seconds and hits a maximum speed of 58mph (94kph) and has a max descent speed of 9m/s for unheard of speed and agility in an aircraft this size. A dual battery system prolongs the flight time to a maximum of 27 minutes (with an X4S),while self-heating technology allows it to fly even in low temperatures. FlightAutonomy has been revised and developed specifically for the Inspire 2,providing two directions of obstacle avoidance and sensor redundancy. Increased intelligence adds multiple intelligent flight modes, including Spotlight Pro, giving even single pilots the ability to create complex, dramatic shots. An upgraded video transmission system is now capable of dual signal frequency and dual channel, streaming video from an onboard FPV camera and the main camera simultaneously, for better pilot and camera operator collaboration....Continue Reading

The Matrice 600 Pro (M600 Pro) inherits everything from the M600 with improved flight performance and better loading capacity.Pre-installed arms and antennas reduce time required for setup, and the systemís modular design makes it easy to mount additional modules.

The airframe is equipped with the latest DJI technologies, including the A3 Pro flight controller, Lightbridge 2 HD transmission system, Intelligent Batteries and Battery Management system. All Zenmuse cameras and gimbals are natively compatible and full integration with third party software and hardware make the M600 Pro ideal for professional aerial photography and industrial applications....Continue Reading
