Sony AS200V to FCP-Tips for using Sony AS200V XAVC S files in Final Cut Pro X/7

Summary: The easy workaround to import Sony AS200V XAVC S files into Final Cut Pro is to convert/transcode XAVC S from Sony AS200V to FCP friendly Apple ProRes.



Sony has updated their HDR-AS camera line with a new 200V version (HDR-AS200V). Besides MP4 recording, it also offers the XAVC S system, with bitrate of up to 50Mbps. Well, here comes a problem- XAVC S video format is hardly compatible with many NLEs, like Final Cut Pro, etc. Thus, how to work Sony AS200V XAVC S in FCP X or FCP 7 correctly? In this page, we will offer a simple solution to edit XAVC S files from Sony HDR-AS200V in Final Cut Pro without any hassle based on highest quality.

According to our own experience and other users’ feedback, we know XVAC S does not appear to be supported by FCP X/7. Apple does not respond on these forums and no one here knows or can say when, if ever, XVAC S will be natively supported by Final Cut Pro. To edit Sony AS200V XAVC S footage in FCP X or FCP 7 smoothly, a practical way is to convert XAVC S to FCP favored ProRes format; it both saves time and trouble.

To transcode XAVC S, XAVC or even 4K video to FCP, here we highly recommend Brorsoft Video Converter for Mac to all of you which not only can deal with heavy XAVC S files to FCP, but also supplies other professional video codecs for NLEs, such as DNxHD for Avid, AIC for iMovie, MPEG-2 for Adobe Premiere and so on. And there is no need to worry about the quality loss.
