Summary: “I've stored some videos from DJI Phantom 2 Vision+, they have trapped me for a long time because the recordings were encoded by H.264 MP4, which seems not available for Pinnacle Studio for editing.”
For seeking the best way to make the DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ video suitable for Pinnacle, we suggest you should know the best video format for Pinnacle. Absolutely right! “AVI” could be the best one for Pinnacle and what a coincidence, it also seems to be the suitable one of the video formats for YouTube! Now, let's make it clear! Since Pinnacle cannot support H.264 MP4 videos as well as others like AVCHD, etc. So in this way, it would be available if we can convert H.264 MP4 to AVI.
The video format that Pinnacle Studio support: AVI File–(.avi) MPEG Files–MPEG-1, MPEG-2 SD & HD, and MPEG-4 – (.mpg, .mpeg, .mod, .mp2, .mp4, .m2ts, .mts, .m1v, m2v. mpv) WMV Files- (.wmv) DIVX–(.avi) MOD (JVC Everio cameras)–(.mod) 3GPP Files–(.3gp) TOD Files–(*.tod) AVCHD–(.m2ts, .mts)–Requires Ultimate or Ultimate Collection
