Sony PXW-X70//C (PXW70C) 1.0 type Exmor R CMOS sensor compact XDCAM camcorder with 12x zoom lens recording XAVC, AVCHD and DV

4K-ready fully-featured affordable compact camcorder for a wide range of applications from news gathering and documentary to events work
The PXW-X70 features a 1.0 type Exmor R CMOS Sensor with a resolution of 20 megapixels. The sensor, which is even larger than the Super 16mm film frame, delivers high resolution and fantastic low light performance, as well as offering more depth of field control as demanded by today’s diverse shooting requirements. The new camcorder has the ability to record High Definition in XAVC Long GOP, enabling 422 10-bit sampling at 50 Mbit/s. This in-turn supports a broadcast-quality workflow, increasingly adopted by productions in many different professional applications.

Recording Format (Video)

XAVC HD : MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 4:2:2 Long profile

AVCHD : MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 AVCHD 2.0 format compatible DV

The XAVC video included in PXW-X70 is not compatible with most NELs just like from Sony F5/F55. To import XAVC HD/4K footage to Final Cut Pro 7 for editing smoothly, the easy workaround is to rewrap and convert XAVC to Apple ProRes, which ensures maximum editing quality and efficiency when working in FCP 7. It’s a great way to achieve your goal smoothly. For this purpose, this article will show you how to transcode Sony XAVC to ProRes MOV in detail.

First all of, you can get Brorsoft Video Converter for Mac, which is an easy-to-use yet professional XAVC Converter for Mac(Yosemite, Mavericks included). With it, you can effortlessly transcode Sony’s new XAVC, XAVC S codec to FCP compatible format and keep original quality at mean while. Besides ProRes for Final Cut Pro, this software can also export Apple InterMedaite Codec(AIC) for iMovie, DNxHD for Avid Media Composer and more NLE systems for native editing. Below is the step-by-step guide on converting XAVC to ProRes MOV for FCP.

Converting XAVC for Editing in Final Cut Pro 7

Step 1: Import XAVC videos

Install and run the XAVC Video Converter on your Mac, then run it. Click on "Add", and browse your files; select all the XAVC files you wanna convert. If you want to combine all the files together for easy importing to FCP, please tick the box "Merge into one" on the main interface.

Step 2: Click on Format, and from the dropdown menu, here I recommend Final Cut Pro > Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov) as the output format. Then you can set the output folder as you want.

Step 3: Adjust video, audio settings

Click the "Settings" button and customize proper video/audio parameters including Video size, bitrate and fame rate and mroe. Usually 1920*1080 video size and 30fps video frame rate are recommended for FCP editing. Well, if you prefer to work with 4K video, you can adjust video size to get 4K ProRes for FCP.

Step 4: Start XAVC to ProRes conversion

After all necessary settings, hit the convert button to start converting XAVC video to ProRes for FCP 7 on Mac OS X.

Once the conversion process shows in 100%, click Open to get the output videos. Create a project and start editing XAVC files in Final Cut Pro 7 with light speed.

Additional Tips:

This XAVC to FCP Converter can also help you to encode XAVC video to iMovie, Adobe, FCE, Avid, etc. You just need to choose a proper video format like “iMovie and Final Cut Express -> Apple InterMediate Codec (AIC) (*.mov)” in the second step. For Avid Media Composer, choose “Avid Media Composer > Avid DNxHD(*.mov)” as output; For Adobe Premiere Pro, choose Adobe Premiere/Sony Vegas> MPEG-2(*.mpg) as output.
