Import and Edit Sony FDR-AX53 4K Videos in FCP X

If you are in trouble with importing and editing Sony FDR-AX53 4K videos in FCP X, please stay to looking trough this article for a moment. You’ll get some tips to fix it.

Sony FDR-AX53 is able to take XAVC S 4K(100Mbps) videos in SDHC Memory Card(4GB or over,UHS-I U3 or Higher) or SDXC Memory Card(UHS-I U3 or Higher). According to FCP X official document, we can know that FCP X is able to handle with XAVC S videos in theory. However, there are still many users have problems with importing and editing Sony FDR-AX53 4K videos in FCP X. In this situation, what we need to do is check the steps of you copying Sony FDR-AX53 4K videos.

Importing Sony FDR-AX53 4K videos to FCP X requires a specific routine in order to make it run smoothly. First, you need to be running Final Cut X. It isn’t possible to import directly from the SD card, as the folder structure on the card somehow “confuses” FCP X. To make it work, you have to take the folder “XDROOT” on your SD card and copy it into an empty folder on your Mac. It is very important!

If you still couldn’t make it, then I would suggest you to transcode Sony FDR-AX53 4K XAVC S videos to Apple Prores 422 HQ(*.mov) which is completely compatible with FCP X. Here I recommend Pavtube Video Converter for Mac(Windows Version) to assist you to finish the work. It is able to transcode Sony FDR-AX53 4K videos to FCP compatible Apple Prores 422 HQ(*.mov), ProRes 422, ProRes Proxy, ProRes 422 LT, ProRes 4444 video. Besides, you may also encode XAVC S/XAVC I/XAVC L to highly compatible formats for Avid Media Composer, Premiere Pro CC, iMovie and more with smooth editing. In addition, it may help you transform Sony FDR-AX53 4K videos to other common formats like MOV, MKV, MP4, etc. for playback on portable devices. Now you can download it and follow the step-by-step guide to do the work.

1. When converting XAVC S footage using Final Cut Pro oriented format templates(e.g. Apple Prores), please ensure that your computer has Final Cut Pro installed, otherwise the converted files will have audio only without image.
2. If you are using FCP X, please make sure you have installed ProApps QuickTime Codecs, or you may get files with sound only without video.
