Change Sony HDR-AZ1 XAVC S to ProRes 422 For Editing in FCP

Summary: Any suggestions as to how I can import sony action cam xavc s to fcp? This tutorial will shed you some light.


Hot search: Sony XAVC S to Avid NewsCutter | Sony PMW-PZ1 XAVC to QuickTime | XAVC/XAVC-S to Grass Valley EDIUS Pro | Sony AS200V XAVC S to After Effects CC

This Cam can records video in XAVC S Codec, which is intended as a more economic and simpler consumer codec, and more appropriate to simpler editing and Internet streaming applications. The previous version of FCP, is not compatible with XAVC or XAVC S. Only the latest version - Final Cut Pro 10.1 (Final Cut Pro X) adds general QuickTime support for XAVC. For fast and fluid workflow, Sony has created a special plug-in (PDZK-LT2 V.1.2), a free-of-charge software for Mac which allows you to decode XAVC S to QuickTime. The plug-in supports SxS Card. However, you can not use HDR-AZ1 import Plug-in to preview.

Actually, it’s not so hard to do the trick. Final Cut Pro works natively with Apple Prores Codec, a line of intermediate codecs, intended for using during video editing to help provide an efficient and high performance workflow with impressive image quality and reduced storage rates. With a professional XAVC S converter- Pavtube HD Video Converter for Mac, you can get the work done easily. This software is able to convert XAVC S files from Sony Action Cam Mini HDR-AZ1 to FCP fully compatible format and keep original quality at the mean while. It can also export MPEG-2 for Premiere Pro, Apple InterMedaite Codec (AIC) for iMovie/FCE, DNxHD for Avid Media Composer for native editing.
