Convert Sony AS100V 50Mbps XAVC S to ProRes for FCP 7/X

    While, there are a few issues when it comes to viewing, loading and editing Sony HDR-AS100V 50 Mbps XAVC S files in non-linear editing software like Final Cut Pro.

The Sony Action Cam HDR-AS100V (real catchy name, guys) is Sony's latest answer to the GoPro. As you might expect, it's a lightweight, rough-and-tumble, wearable camera for recording your various adventures. It can shoot video at up to 1080p at 60 frames per second (or 720p at 120fps), and at a bitrate of up to 50Mbps.
The Pro Files still have the .MP4 extension, but use the XAVC S Codec.

Well, XAVC-S format differs from XAVC in that it uses GOP codec of H.264/AVC for video file compression; it’s not an ideal editable format for NLE based on many users’ experience. So, how to make Sony AS100V XAVC S clips workable in FCP 7/FCP X perfectly?

Alternatively, since Final Cut Pro does not have native editing support for XAVC-S footage, you can transcode Sony AS100V XAVC-S to Prores codec, which has been designed to work especially well as high-quality, high performance editing codecs for Final Cut Pro(no matter FCP X or FCP 6/7). Brorsoft Video Converter for Mac is the recommended utility to fulfill the task.

This video converter for Mac can be used as a Sony XAVC-S Converter Mac under OS X Leopard (10.5), Snow Leopard (10.6), Lion (10.7), Mountain Lion (10.8), Mavericks (10.9), Yosemite(10.10). With it, you can effortlessly encode/re-encode XAVC/XAVC-S files for smoothly importing and editing in various non-linear editing systems (NLE), including Final Cut Pro X, FCP 6/7, iMovie, Final Cut Express, Adobe Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer, etc. Download the program and follow the XAVC-S to ProRes conversion process.
