So you have a PXW-FS7 and your looking for more information on how to get the very best from it. This page is the place
to start. I will be adding a guide about converting Sony PXW-FS7 XAVC 4K/HD to editable mov with ProRes coedc for post production in Final Cut Pro 7, FCP X on Mac OS X.
Q: Xavc -Fcp
"Just been asked by a friend.. he shot XAVC 4K (Sony PXW-FS7) and his client has requsted he transcode to Pro Res files for FCP.. yes that old chestnut .. I know for XDCAM HD you can re wrap to mov.. with content browser.. can the same be done with XAVC footage ?
Generally, we can use Log and Transfer or Log and Capture to import videos, images, ect to FCP for editing. But XAVC codec is a new one, and is not widely supported, including FCP 6/7 and even the latest FCP X. Since, Apple ProRes is the most compatible codec for FCP, so if we want to edit Sony FS7 XAVC on Final Cut Pro 7, it is necessary to convert those already shot XAVC files to ProRes .mov using third-party software. I recommended you to try Brorsoft Video Converter for Mac, which is a professional tool for Mac users to transcode full HD 1080p and ultra HD 4K to Final Cut Pro with the best quality.
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 Sony FS7 XAVC to ProRes MOV for FCP 7, FCP X.
