To capture 3840*2160 resolution, the AX1 uses Sony's new XAVC-S format, which I think will dominate 4K acquisition for the consumer and prosumer market. XAVC-S employs a more efficient MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 Long GOP compression with an MP4 wrapper. As a video editing software package currently developed by Grass Vally, EDIUS Pro is the finishing tool often used for broadcast news, news magazine content and studio programs as well as corporate, documentary and 4K theatrical productions.

The latest version of EDIUS vesion 7.41 and its later version supports all types of XAVC and XAVC S. But for its former versions such as EDIUS 7.2 or, people will often complained that they get only audio but no video files when importing FDR-AX1 4K XAVC video footage to EDIUS Pro for editing. This error can be caused by the unrecognized codec contained in your XAVC video footage.

In order to import Sony FDR-AX1 4K footage to EDIUS 7.2 smoothly, you’ll need to convert 4K XAVC to a format that is suited for editing in EDIUS 7.2, like MPEG-2, WMV, DNxHD and more. After multiple testing, I found Pavtube Video Converter is the best option. It is able to convert 4K footage to EDIUS friendly format MPEG-2 easily with the best video quality. Besides 4K footage, this video convert program can also help to convert between any popular video and audio formats as you need. Plus, with the built-in video editing feature of the program, you can trim, crop, add watermark and more to your video files.

How to import Sony FDR-AX1 4K footage to EDIUS Pro 7.2?

Step 1: As soon as you download and install the program, launch it and when the main interface pops up in front of us, just click the “Add Video” or “Add from Folder” to let in.

Step 2: Click the drop-down list in the format line to get the format box. Then choose “Adobe Premiere/Sony Vegas>>MPEG-2 (*.mpg)” as output format.

Step 3: Click “Settings” button to customize the output video and audio settings by yourself. But if you are not good at it, you’d better use the default parameters, they will ensure you a good balance between file size and image quality basically. You can change the resolution, bit rate, frame rate as you need.

Step 4: After that, click “Convert” to start Sony FDR-AX1 4K footage to MPEG-2 conversion.
