How to solve Canon 5D Mark IV 4K to Avid Media Composer issues

The easy workaround to edit Canon 5D Mark IV 4K footage in Avid Media Composer is to convert and compress 5D Mark IV 4K videos to Avid MC compatible video. Here is how.
The Canon 5D Mark IV is the world's most universally useful DSLR. It is competitive for both sports and action as well as for wedding, nature, portrait, landscape and product photography. Got some 4096×2160 Digital Cinema Initiative 4K video from a 5D Mark IV? Looks amazing, but it makes the video editing in Mac editors like Avid Media Composer a real nightmare. 
I'm trying to import the 4K files from 5D Mark IV to Avid Media Composer to make a project, but my Avid MC 7 won't read the 4K files. 
Please note, in order to work within a 4K project in Avid MC, you must have Avid Media Composer 8.3 or higher. See 4K Workflow with Avid Media Composer here. But unluckily, still some users have "Canon 5D Mark IV 4K to Avid MC Importing Issues" after update. Why?
Although Media Composer has already had 4K and "high-resolution" (i.e., higher-than-4K) support via Avid Media Access (AMA) in previous versions and now the Canon 5D Mark IV 4K to Avid Media Composer workflow has been even improved in Media Composer 8. Whereas, there's actually no way to edit Canon 5K Mark IV 4K project natively with Avid MC. In most cases, editing 4K raw in Avid Media Composer is very taxing on your computer.
Scout the internet, I got some clues. An ultimate solution we found would be to transcode/compress 4K to DNxHD for Avid Media Composer. Different from 720p/1080p videos, the conversion of 4K video is in a higher standard, a professional 4K Video Converter for Mac is what you need. 
And here Dimo Video Converter Ultimate for Mac can help you finish the task easily and quickly. This Mac video converter provides the most reliable and professional 4K solutions to all format issues including 4K M-JPEG, MP4, 4K MOV, 4K MXF, 4K XAVC/XAVC S and more.

More than that, this 4K converter is also available to customize the output resolutions to any size like 1080p, 2K, 4K as users want.
