Import Sony 4K XAVC S to FCP/After Effects/FCE/iMovie/Premiere Pro/Avid MC

XAVC S is a subset format, using many of the superlative techniques and technologies used in XAVC, but intended for consumer products and workflows. It supports the 3840×2160 pixel version of 4K only, known as Quad Full HD, QFHD, UltraHDTV or UHDTV. XAVC S is a lighter codec with Long GOP compression and relatively small recorded file sizes. XAVC S also uses the .MP4 file wrapper for greater compatibility and suitability in consumer workflows.

Shoot with Sony’s hottest 4K cameras like the Sony FDR-X3000, Sony FDR-AX1, Sony FDR-AX100, Sony HDR-AS100V, Sony a6000, Sony Alpha a6300, Sony Alpha a7 II, Sony a7s, Sony a7s ii, etc, then you would plan to import your 4K XAVC S into Final Cut Pro X/7/6, After Effects, FCE/iMovie, Adobe Premiere Pro, Avid, Sony Vegas, etc for immediate, native editing. Although Sony tries their best to make the new codec- Sony XVAC S compatible with most devices or NLEs, it is still difficult to import XAVC S videos to Final Cut Pro (FCP X included), After Effects, FCE/iMovie, Adobe Premiere Pro, Avid, Sony Vegas, etc. You’d better transcode XAVC S to a more edit-friendly format like ProRes for Apple’s Final Cut, MPG for After Effects/Premiere Pro/Sony Vegas, DNxHD MOV for Avid, AIC for FCE/iMovie. Here UFUSoft HD Converter for Mac is the recommended utility to fulfill the task.
