Hey guys, for all you drone 4k video stock creators or video creators, just wondering if anyone is removing digital noise and frame flicker that we get from alot of the DJI Mavic Pro drone shots that is avoidable. Also is everyone stabilizing there footage as well to make extra smooth? Please advise. Thanks!

I use the Mavic Pro 2 and only ever use the 100 ISO rating - anything above that does introduce noise. I have sometimes used Neat Video noise reduction in Premiere for evening shots, for instance, and I also use the stabilization plugin if the drone is static in the sky to avoid the normal movement with the wind blowing it around. Never seen an issue with flicker though.

Yes, any technical issue with any footage from any camera is fixed. That is part of creating stock footage that sells over and over again.

Like steheap said, flicker is not an issue with the high bitrate, 1-inch sensor drones, but it was quite bad with my old Phantom 3 Pro, although mostly fixable (along with standard small sensor noise) with Neat and/or Flicker Fixer.

I did not like selling the small sensor drone footage as 4k however, as the detail was not actually there. I would not have been happy myself to pay 4k prices for Phantom 3 Pro footage. I think it is similar to the Mavic (1).

The footage from the Phantom 4 Pro and the Mavic 2 Pro is very, very good however, with true 4k quality and very good detail.

if it's a daylight footage it can't be flicker but the way the dji mavic pro compresses the footage...it's called iframe flicker...

Buy a better drone, like the Phantom 4 Pro 2.0? :)

(Actually the specs are MUCH better than the mavic)...

ps - the flicker you may actually be seeing (because I can actually get it if not careful) - is actually the propellors - so you have the camera angled too far up.
when taking video - angle the camera down a bit more and it might stop the flicker...
