How to Edit Sony A7R II 4K XAVC S in Avid Media Composer on Mac

Watching Sony 4k video is highly intriguing and gives real life experience to the viewers. But editing those super smooth and high definition videos is a Herculean task and can transform into an agony when you a lack a super computer. When you got a Sony Alpha a7 II, you can easily shot some 4k XAVC S footage. Then you would wanna know how to use the Sony A7R II XAVC S footage in Avid Media Composer or other NELs. Since there are users complained that Avid Media Composer doesn’t natively import or AMA link A7R II XAVC S files, I will show a workaround in this page. Just learn the Sony A7R II XAVC S to Avid MC workflow.

When importing and editing Sony A7R II 4K XAVC/XAVC S videos in Avid Media Composer, users always encounter video and audio problems, as XAVC (.mxf) or XAVC S (*.mp4) format is efficient, but simply isn’t engineered to maintain quality during complex post production effects processing. Uncompressed HD format delivers superior image quality, but data rates and file sizes can stop a workflow dead in its tracks. Well, Avid DNxHD format delivers both efficiency and quality without compromises. So, before transferring Sony XAVC/XAVC S to Avid MC, you’d better convert Sony XAVC/XAVC S to Avid DNxHD for smoothly editing.

Overall, UFUWare XAVC/XAVC-S Converter for Mac is just one of the best Avid XAVC Converter for you to transcode XAVC/XAVC-S files for Avid smooth editing on Mac (Yosemite/Mavericks included). The program is capable of converting Sony XAVC/XAVC-S to DNxHD, MPEG-2, Apple ProRes, AIC, etc on Mac OS X for smoothly importing and editing in various non-linear editing systems (NLE), including Avid Media Composer 5.5/6.0/6.5, Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro, iMovie and more. If you’re using a Windows PC, please turn to its equivalent Windows version – XAVC/XAVC S Converter. Below is the workflow of Sony XAVC/XAVC S to DNxHD MOV conversion.
