And the latest version- Final Cut Pro 10.1(Final Cut Pro X) adds general QuickTime supports XAVC S Long GOP QFHD and HD. However, there is no luck on the previous version of FCP, version 7. Final Cut Pro 7 has no ability to support XAVC S format yet. So how can we import Sony XAVC S to FCP 7 without hassle?

If you’re having some XAVC S clips from Sony a7S, Sony FDR-AX100, HDR-AS100V, FDR-AX1 to Final Cut Pro 7, don’t worry. There is an easy way to fix the issue. Since Final Cut Pro 7 does not have native editing support for XAVC S footage, you can transcode XAVC S to Prores codec, which has been designed to work especially well as high-quality, high performance editing codecs for Final Cut Pro 7. Brorsoft Video Converter for Mac is the recommended utility to fulfill the task.

Step 2: Click the "Format" bar and select Final Cut Pro> Apple ProRes 422(*.mov) as output format, which should work with FCP 7 perfectly.

    My colleague can import XAVC files into FCP X with a released plugin by FCP. However, I only have FCP 7 installed on my computer which makes me Google and find a powerful App to help me out. Brorsoft is the best one among so many tools I have tried.
