Transcode Sony a7R II 4K XAVC S files to Final Cut Pro 7, FCP X with OS X (Yosemite)

June 23, 2015

Final Cut Pro can’t read raw files from a7R ii? FCP X/7/6 support raw files? This article will help you handle and edit a7R II raw files in FCP via converting raw files to Final Cut supported formats - Apple ProRes.

Source From: Getting Sony A7R II Media (4K XAVC S/AVCHD/MP4) into FCP 7/X

Like the Sony A7S before it, the A7R II is able to capture ultra-high-resolution 4K video (3840 x 2160), however, unlike the "S" model, it can record 4K video internally to the memory card (or via HDMI with an uncompressed 4:2:2 8-bit signal, as well). The A7R II makes use of Sony's higher bitrate XAVC S file format, which supports 4K bitrates up to 100Mbps. Full HD and 720p video recording is also offered in XAVC S format at 50Mbps (AVCHD and MP4 formats are also available for these resolutions).

XAVC S with MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 level 5.2, the highest picture resolution and frame rate video compression codec is much more than a video format that FCP can support. According to our own experience and other user's feedback, to transfer Sony A7R II XAVC S footage to Final Cut Pro, the best workaround here is to convert XAVC S to Apple ProRes, the most compatible video format for FCP (no matter FCP X, FCP 7 or FCP 6).



Here we highly recommend Brorsoft Video Converter for Mac to all of you which not only can deal with heavy XAVC S files to Final Cut Pro affordable video format, but also supplies other powerful video codecs for NLEs, such as MPEG-2 for Premiere Pro CC/CS6/CS5/CS4, DNxHD for Avid, AIC for iMovie and so on.
