The newly released Sony A5100 has won lots of attractions from videographers. The camcorder has an extremely efficient recording codec XAVC S, allowing for bit rates of 50Mbps. It also has the ability to simultaneously record 720p video while recording at higher resolutions.

Now some tips and tricks for Sony A5100 XAVC S to FCP X best workflow are listed below.

As you can see above, the Sony A5100 can record videos in XAVC S, AVCHD and MP4 formats, all of them are not native formats for Final Cut Pro editing. As far as I know the latest high definition XAVC/XAVC S video format introduced by Sony is still not supported well by FCP X/7/6. From Apple FCP official page you will get the info that Apple ProRes codec is the native codec for FCP X, once you convert video to Apple ProRes codec you can import the video to FCP X for editing smoothly, and you don’t need to render anymore.

It is safe to install and easy to use. Below I will show you how to convert Sony A5100 XAVC S footage to ProRes MOV for FCP X in details.

Choose the proper one you want. Here, we suggest you to choose Apple ProRes 422 .mov as the best output format.

Step 3: Press the “Settings” icon and you’d better set the video frame rate as 30fps, video size as 1920*1080 for editing Sony A5100 XAVC S files in FCP X easily.
