Sony’s PXW-FS7 is the ideal camcorder for documentaries, unscripted TV, newsmagazines, indie features, corporate video and more. It can record in your choice of XAVC-I, XAVC-L, or MPEG-2. Normally for professional videographers, they must know much about how to edit different video formats in some popular NLEs. However, editing Sony PXW-FS7 XAVC files in Premiere Pro is also a hard task to them.
“I can edit my other videos including AVCHD in Premiere CS5.5 without problem. But when I import my Sony PXW-FS7 XAVC videos into Premiere, I only got “Unsupported format” massage. What’s going on? Does that mean Premiere cannot handle XAVC clips?”
As it claimed, Adobe Premiere Pro CC, the latest version of Adobe Premiere Pro, had added support for this new camera format. While, users need to download Rovi Totalcode, a Plug-in for Adobe Premiere Pro CS5/CS5.5/CS6 which is able to support Sony’s 4K XAVC format perfectly, if they wanna import XAVC to Adobe Premiere CC previous versions. Whereas, this third-party plug-in will cost you a lot of money. In addition, it only works on Windows. Frankly, to those videographers, it is not an ideal way to solve the incompatibility problem.
