We found many users have the problems in importing and editing the Sony RX10 III AVCHD/MPEG-4 videos in Avid MC. In fact if your AVCHD/MPEG-4 files are not accepted by Media Composer, it's probably because of the video or audio codec incompatibility.
Worse still, although Media Composer has already had 4K and "high-resolution" (i.e., higher-than-4K) support via Avid Media Access (AMA) in previous versions and 4K Full Screen Playback are supported within Media Composer, there's actually no way to edit a 4K project natively with Avid. Actually, editing 4K raw in Avid Media Composer is very taxing on your computer. On this occasion, you need to transcode Sony RX10 III AVCHD/MPEG-4 to the Avid MC editing-friendly formats and then transfer the converted video files to your Media Composer for editing.
