a7R II xavc-s to Avid DNxHD-How to Get Avid Work With New a7R ii XAVC S Clips Perfectly

I'm looking for some tips regarding post workflow and getting XAVC S media into Avid Media Composer. There are a few issues when it comes to view, load and edit XAVC S in Avid MC from Sony a7R II.

Sony announced the successor to their popular a7R stills camera. Aptly named the a7R II. One area where the Sony Alpha A7R II soundly beats the DSLR competition is video. It can shoot at 4K resolution, without needing an external recorder like the A7 S.

The Sony Alpha A7R II records using the XAVC S codec, at up to 100Mbps at 4K resolution, or 50Mbps at HD. There’s also a special Super 35mm crop mode that emulates the field of view of cameras like the Red Epic while using oversampling at a rate of x1.8 to help reduce noise.

However, XAVC-S has been designed as a partner compression codec to XAVC with a more tightly compressed video signal. The XAVC-S codec uses the .MP4 file wrapper defined by MPEG-4 Part 14 for its 4K, HD and proxy files. Although Sony have created a special AMA plug-in for AVID (PDZK-MA2), providing support for XAVC files in Avid Media Composer, it can't work sometimes. Via Google searching, you can find lots of issues about XAVC S codec in Avid MC.



To avoid these problems or limit, it will be better to transcode Sony XAVC S to a more "edit" friendly codec. Brorsoft Video Converter for Mac is highly recommended here. The program is an easy-to-use yet professional Sony XAVC S Converter for Avid Media Composer. It's able to convert XAVC S files from Sony a7R II to Avid more compatible format DNxHD video.

Summary: This article offers a brief guide about how to transcode and transfer Sony PXW-X200 XAVC footages to Final Cut Pro for smooth editing. Learn details now.



The Sony PXW-X200 XAVC keeps the design philosophy of the previous PMW models in that it uses a manual lens with a 29.3-499 mm focal length range with iris/zoom/focus rings on the barrel with end stops. Recording codecs include 10-bit XAVC at up to 112 Mbps in intraframe mode, and 50/35/25 Mbps in Long GOP modes. I have got a Sony PXW-200 for days. Just curious if people can work with Sony PXW-X200 XAVC in Final Cut Pro natively as I plan to edit the XAVC clips from Sony PXW-X200 in FCP creating some effects I want.

I have scoured the internet, tried everything I could find about the Sony PWX-X200 XAVC to Final Cut Pro workflow. The final result I found from all relevant forums is that FCP doesn't do XAVC files perfectly especially in Final Cut Pro 7. A decent solution is to use a third-party video app to convert Sony PXW-X200 XAVC clips to FCP native format before editing. Brorsoft Video Converter for Mac is what most guys recommend.

Overall, it is a professional XAVC Converter under Mac OS X(Yosemite, Mavericks, Mountain Lion included).

What’s more, it can work as a 4K video converter that enables you to encode 4K to FCP, iMovie, Avid MC, etc NLEs. Just download it and follow the tutorial below to get the work done.

Tutorial: Editing Sony PWX-X200 XAVC in Final Cut Pro 7/X

Run the best XAVC to FCP Converter and click “Add file” or “Add from folder” button, browse to the Sony PWX-X200 footages and load them to the converter for conversion. You can check the “Merge into one” box to join several files together.

Click on Format, and from the dropdown menu, here I recommend Final Cut Pro > Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov) as the output format. Then you can set the output folder as you want.



Step 3: Adjust video, audio settings

Click the "Settings" button and customize proper video/audio parameters including Video size, bitrate and fame rate and mroe. Usually 1920*1080 video size and 30fps video frame rate are recommended for FCP editing.

Step 4: Start XAVC to ProRes conversion

After all necessary settings, hit the convert button to start converting XAVC video to ProRes for FCP on Mac OS X.

Once the conversion process shows in 100%, click Open to get the output videos. Create a project and start editing Sony PXW-X200 XAVC files in Final Cut Pro 7 or FCP X with light speed.

Additional Tips:

This XAVC to ProRes Converter can also help you to encode XAVC video to iMovie, Adobe, FCE, Avid, etc. You just need to choose a proper video format like “iMovie and Final Cut Express -> Apple InterMediate Codec (AIC) (*.mov)” in the second step. For Avid Media Composer, choose “Avid Media Composer > Avid DNxHD(*.mov)” as output; For Adobe Premiere Pro, choose Adobe Premiere/Sony Vegas> MPEG-2(*.mpg) as output.

JVC 4K to Avid-Editing JVC GW-SP100 4KCAM recordings to Avid MC in DNxHD format

If you happen to grab a 4K camcorder - JVC GW-SP100 (GWSP100E), you can import that raw 4K+4K and HD footage to Avid Media Composer for editing with the compatible DNxHD .mov format.

JVC GW-SP100E (GWSP100E) 4K Remote Head Camera & Recording System w/ Detachable 7 inch LCD Monitor
The JVC GW-SP100 is a 4KCAM remote camera head and recording unit; the system includes the camera head, a recording/playback device with built-in monitor and a RCU controller. This tiny camera records at HD and 4K Ultra HD, at 4:2:2 150Mbps, and supports up to 50/60p recording in both HD and 4K. 4K footage is recorded as a single file in AVC H.264 format at 150Mbps. Thanks to the system’s two dual codecs and four card slots (two for 4K, two for HD), the camera can record 4K+4K and HD+HD (continuous/back-up recording), making it a very flexible system. Recording is via cost-effective SDHC/SDXC cards; a single 64GB UHS-I U3 SDXC card provides around an hour of recorded 4K footage at 60p.

I have scoured the internet, tried everything I could find about the JVC GW-SP100 4K video to Avid MC workflow. The final result I found from all relevant forums is that Avid doesn't do 4K. To solve these problems effectively, it will be better to transcode JVC SP100E 4K H.264 video format to a more "edit" friendly codec.
