Q:FCPX 10.2.2 crashes when I try to import Sony FS5 XAVC files ? 
"FCPX 10.2.2 crashes when I try to import Sony FS5 4K XAVC files... Suggestions?? 


What I saw when shooting 4K with the FS5 is it looks nearly as good as the FS7, but not 100% the same as the FS7. Of course, the FS5 is limited in its color bit depth: 8 bit to the FS7's 10bit. The FS5's 4K is also limited by XAVC-L codec. Whereas the FS7 has the more robust XAVC-I codec. Does all of this mean the FS5 4K is substandard? Of course not. Just know it has a few limitations yet can still look great.
