How to import XAVC S from Sony A7S to Final Cut Pro 7/X Directly

June 26, 2016

Fail to import Sony A7S 4K XAVC S to FCP 7/FCP X, get the best workflow of 4K XAVC S with Final Cut Pro with the solutions offered below.

It does feel initially like the new A7s could be a serious contender for the Panasonic GH4… what do you think?

I will be shooting with both of these cameras this year. I am super excited to own both of them. I’ve already shot for a week with a pre-production GH4 and loved the images. For me the pair of them each have their own purpose. Speaking personally for my own filmmaking work, the GH4 has the advantage of small size and stealth as it doesn’t need an external monitor or recorder for 4K recording and it has a sensor size compatible with my Cooke PL mount lenses. This will be useful for on-location situations that call for high image quality but discrete filming, to capture a natural mood and non-staged moments as a documentary shooter.

The A7S I will use for low light shooting mostly or when I specifically want a full frame look for a locked down shot. Overall I am expecting the image to be most exciting from the A7S. Full frame – love it. Low light – love it. No internal codec – don’t love it!



While, if you want to edit the XAVC S videos from Sony a7S, you may find the high quality XAVC S files are not recognized by most editing software like iMovie, Final Cut Pro, FCE, etc. So, how to import Sony XAVC S clips from Sony a7S to iMovie, FCP, FCE correctly?

The basic reason why we can’t work XVAC S videos on Mac easily is that XAVC S codec is a new one, and is not widely supported. In order to make the XAVC S videos from Sony A7s compatible with iMovie/FCE/FCP, a workable way is to convert Sony a7S XAVC S to iMovie/FCP/FCE compatible format. Brorsoft Video Converter for Mac is the solid tool to help users make the XAVC S transcoding on Mac OS X.

With it, you can effortlessly encode/re-encode XAVC S intra footage shot from Sony A7S for smoothly importing and editing in various non-linear editing systems (NLE), including Final Cut Pro 6/7, FCP X, iMovie, Final Cut Express, Adobe Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer and more. And there is no need to worry about the quality loss.
