It is in our pipeline to have the Phantom 4 Pro and Inspire 2 in our list of supported drones with Pix4Dcapture, however, we are not able to give a timeline for this integration.
The new DJI SDK 3.5 (what allows the communication between the app and the drone’s firmware), which supports Phantom 4 Pro and Inspire 2, has just been released by DJI. We will work on it as soon as we have the drones in our office. We might have the Phantom 4 Pro first. If we receive it soon, we could support it mid-January on Android and a bit later on iOS (rough estimation). For the inspire 2, currently it is in pre-order so we do not know exactly when we will get it.

As for Pix4D desktop, it can process images taken with any cameras. The only requirement is to have .jpeg or .tif images.
If the camera is included in our database, the camera is detected through the images and its optimized parameters are used for processing.
If the camera is not included, like for the Phantom 4 Pro, EXIF files of the images are loaded for processing in case they contain the corresponding camera parameters. This should happen in your case and we expect the internal parameters (sensor width, pixel size, etc.) to be loaded in the Edit Camera Model window: https://support.pix4d.com/hc/en-us/articles/202560169
To calibrate a perspective camera from scratch we recommend to follow this article:https://support.pix4d.com/hc/en-us/articles/206065716
The workflow that we would suggest is first to run step 1. Initial Processing and to eventually improve the results by following the procedure described in the calibration article from 9.
Note that for an optimal calibration of the camera we recommend a good aerial nadir dataset with the specifications mentioned in the article.
The mechanical shutter of the the Phantom 4 Pro will improve the accuracy and processing time probably, even though the current linear rolling shutter correction already gives very good results for other DJI drones.
We are waiting to receive the new DJI drones to add their camera to our database.
