Can’t import XAVC to Final Cut Pro 7- Fixed now

    This XAVC workflow guide offers the tips and tricks on how to work with [b]XAVC in Final Cut Pro 7 easily. Read on. [/b]

"I can import Sony 4K video into FCP X. Why I can’t play the Sony 4k xavc video in FCP X smoothly? The rendering time is too long."

The newly released Sony PXW FS7, Sony PXW-X70, PXW-X180, PMW-1000, PXW-Z100… or typical models Sony F5, F55 all record XAVC videos. To enable users to have smooth XAVC to FCP workflow, Sony has introduced XAVC Plug-in for Apple (PDZK-LT2), which provides support for XAVC files shot on Sony SxS card, allowing viewing and editing capability in Final Cut Pro X. Whereas, the previous version of FCP 7 is still not compatible with XAVC files.

Well, it is a pity that FCP 7 can’t support XAVC especially in 4K. The easy workaround to import XAVC to FCP 7 is to transcode (4K) XAVC clips into FCP 7 compatible Apple ProRes, which is a line of intermediate codecs. They are intended for use during video editing. And Brorsoft Video Converter for Mac is recommended here to help you finish the XAVC to ProRes conversion task.

This video converter for Mac can be used as a Sony XAVC Converter Mac under OS X 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 files for smoothly importing and editing in various non-linear editing systems (NLE), including Final Cut Pro 7 as well as FCP 6, FCP X, iMovie, Final Cut Express, Adobe Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer, etc. Download it and follow the tutorial below.

Trancoding XAVC to Final Cut Pro friendly ProRes codec

STEP 1. Download, install and run the XAVC to FCP 7 Converter ; click "Add Videos" icon to load your source XAVC files.

STEP 2. Click “Format” bar and choose “Final Cut Pro >> Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov)” as output format for editing XAVC in FCP 7 with natively supported video codec.

STEP 3. Click the Settings icon if you’d like to customize advanced audio and video parameters like Video Codec, aspect ratio, bit rate, frame rate, Audio codec, sample rate, audio channels.

STEP 4. After all necessary settings, hit the convert button to start the XAVC to ProRes conversion on Mac OS X. Once the conversion process shows 100%, click Open to get the output videos. Now you can edit the encoded Sony XAVC videos in FCP 7 without any problem.
