"what is XAVC files and how can I make it work with the editing program like FCP?"

Maybe you have come across similar questions when Googling a solution for importing Sony XAVC videos to FCP. Congratulations – what you're reading is a quick and easy guide for solving the problem.

In the first place, let's get familiar with the XAVC format. Sony's new XAVC recording format is at the heart of its latest industry-leading products. XAVC provides a dedicated 4K format that will encourage the adoption of 4K beyond feature films, in genres such as TV Dramas, Entertainment shows, Documentaries and Commercials.

As well as the widespread applications for the professional HDTV market, Sony has developed the XAVC format to enable the expansion of 4K content into the consumer market. XAVC is designed to provide a future proof codec that can meet customers' rapidly developing requirements for 4K content production and HD120P high frame rate shooting.

Sony's XAVC format employs MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 level 5.2, the highest picture resolution and frame rate video compression codec based on industry standards. XAVC enables a very wide range of operational possibilities for content production, notably: from Proxy to 4K pixel resolutions, intra frame and long GOP schemes, and 1080 50P/60P infrastructure capability.

Can we import XAVC videos to FCP 6/7 for editing?

However, when you enjoying hi-def videos shot by Sony F5/F55 and some other XAVC camcorders, it will be a pain to make these XAVC files compatible with FCP 6 or 7, because Sony released a XAVC/XDCAM Plug-in for FCPX, but it does not support FCP 6/7. Hence you have to convert them to prores codec—the most compatible video codec for FCP series.

To accomplish your goal, you can try Pavtube HD Video Converter for Mac, which is a great Sony XAVC Converter for Mac. It can not only convert Sony XAVC videos to Apple ProRes codec, but also guarantee smooth editing. Compatible OS: Mac OS X like Tiger, Leopard, Snow Leopard, Lion, Mountain Lion.

Now get it installed and let's work it out.

How to load Sony XAVC videos to FCP 6/7?

Step 1: click top left icons to load your XAVC video to XAVC Converter for Mac. You can load individual videos by clicking ‘add videos', or load the entire folder by clicking ‘add from folder'.

Step 2: Choose Apple ProRes 422 codec for Final Cut Pro 6/7/X.

To get 1080 videos, we need to click the "Settings" button and choose 1920*1080 as output video resolution.

Step 3: Convert Sony XAVC files for FCP. Click the read button Convert to start transcoding XAVC files to MOV for FCP 6/7. When the conversion is completed, click "Open" button to locate the converted Apple ProRes 422 MOV files for editing with Final Cut Pro.
