“Hello there, I’ve recently purchased the new POV action cam Sony
HDR-AS100V and can’t seem to open the AS100V Full HD 1080/60p XAVC S video in FCP X for basic editing. The XAVC S content is stored in a MP4 wrapper. Does anyone know if there is a way to make
FCP X recognize AS100V XAVC S/MP4 natively?”
According to the question asked above, to smoothly work our Sony HDR-AS100V action camcorder well, we have tried so many measures. Cause the AS100V has built-in Wi-Fi accompanied by NFC for fast pairing. The camera lets you record at 1080p at 60fps in MP4, but can also record in Sony’s XAVC-S format for 1080p60 movies with bit rates up to 50Mbps. So what does MP4 differ from XAVC S codec? Then we can know the solution to handle these two guys well in NLEs, right?
Any other ideas of editing XAVC S files in FCP
7, Sony Vegas, etc? In fact, we just only need to convert
our XAVC S or MP4 recordings to ProRes MOV, which we all know the best format for FCP X. So now the point is there any converting tools can handle the XAVC S and MP4 both well for FCP X?
Fortunately, we today can introduce you the Pavtube HD Video Converter for Mac for you, which is a professional program that can transcode XAVC S and MP4 to
ProRes MOV well with the high original quality preserved. Any related reviews?
