But the feedback unveiled that when it would be smooth to play the videos in QuickTime Player and VLC while it is choppy using the DJI Spark videos in iMovie.

When we are visiting DJI forums, we found that this problem is not unique. But few people can know the exact reason. One speculation is that whether DJI is reporting the frame rate incorrectly in its files or it a software issue on the desktop cause while importing video clips in Final Cut Pro, if you change the default frame-rate of 29.97 to 30fps, the video plays smoothly. Using the 'mediainfo' utility, the only difference we can see between DJI videos and videos from other cameras is the following:

DJI: Frame rate : 29.970 (30000/1001) fps
iPhone: Frame rate : 30.000 fps
