After you’ve recorded 4K video, simply add 4K video clips to your project in iMovie for iOS or iMovie for Mac. You can combine 4K video with other types of video clips and photos in the same project in iMovie. Many people complainted that their iMovie can’t export 4k video. This is why? I think you have to pay attention to some matters below.

Note 1. iMovie for iOS

In iMovie for iOS, the clips in your project determine how you can export your project. If the project is entirely photos, or has at least one 4K video, it can be shared at 4K resolution.

Note 2. iMovie for Mac

In iMovie for Mac, the first clip added to your project determines how you can export your movie or trailer. If you want to export a 4K file, be sure to add a 4K clip in the timeline before adding other clips.

You can confirm that the format of your imported movie is correct by clicking Settings in the upper right side of the timeline. The format of the currently-opened movie is displayed at the top of the Project Settings window.

All those cause the diversity of 4k vdieo formats. So it is common that you fail to import some 4k video to iMovie. Moreover, the final iMovie render file is very large or you fail to upload them to Youtube or other video sharing website due to video formats incompatibility issues, or some video sharing communities has limitation to uploaded videos.

Additional information: Apple ProRes Codecs

ProRes 422 HQ: This is the highest-quality video format, but unless you are shooting very carefully-lit, high-end video, such as RED, HDCAM, or HDCAM SR, the quality of your source image doesn’t equal the format. Use this version only for high-end work.

ProRes 422: This is the format I recommend for anyone shooting DSLR, HDV, AVCHD, XDCAM EX, XDCAM HD, AVCAM, or P2. Great image quality, with file sizes 30-35% smaller than ProRes 422 HQ. Since the DSLR images start as H.264, which is already quite compressed, ProRes 422 most closely matches the original image quality.

ProRes 422 LT: This is the format to use if you have tons of footage, need to edit using smaller (i.e. less storage space) hard drives, or are going to go thru an off-line to on-line process.

ProRes 422 Proxy: This format should only be used when file size is more important than image quality. Training files, library archive files, or other reference media are a good choice for this format.

Apple ProRes 4444: offers the utmost possible quality for 4:4:4 sources and is roughly 50 percent higher than the data rate of Apple ProRes 422 (HQ). Support for any resolution, including SD, HD, 2K, 4K, and other resolutions.

The big advancement is the ability to shoot 4K footage at 60 frames per second. As we know, GoPros have shot in 4K for a few generations, which produces much clearer picture than 1080p or 720p. When you’ve got 4k footage, you may want to play them on your iPhone.
