Alpha 7S to Final Cut Pro - Natively Edit Sony a7s footage in FCP 7/X with ProRes codec

The following will introduce a powerful FCP Converter and provide a step by step guide on how to import XAVC-S file from Sony Alpha 7S (a7s) to FCP 6/7 and Final Cut Pro X on OS X Yosemite (10.10) with almost no loss of video and tone quality.

Sony's newly announced a7S is a versatile camera that lets you internally record videos in 50Mbps XAVC S 1920x1080 at 60P. Plus, in XAVC S video mode, the a7S can output uncompressed QFHD 4K video (3840 x 2160) in 8-bit 4:2:2 to an optional external 3rd party 4k recorder via HDMI. While, there are a few issues when it comes to view, load and edit Sony a7S XAVC S in Final Cut Pro. Some tricks for Sony a7S to Final Cut Pro 7/X best workflow are listed below.

As we mentioned above, the a7S uses XAVC S recording format. At present XVAC-S, a long GOP inter-frame codec, does not appear to be supported by FCP X, although I do not know that from personal experience. Apple does not respond on these forums and no one here knows or can say when, if ever, XVAC-S will be natively supported by FCP X. To edit Sony a7S XAVC S footage in FCP X or FCP 7 smoothly, a suggestion is to use Brorsoft Video Converter for Mac to transcode "XAVC S" to "ProRes", which is a friendly format supported by FCP.

With it, you can effortlessly transcode Sony a7S XAVC S files to Apple ProRes - ensuring maximum editing quality and efficiency when working with Final Cut Pro (no matter Final Cut Pro X, FCP 6 or FCP 7). The conversion is darn easy to be finished with only three clicks without loss of video quality. Click the Download button below to get the program and check out the easy steps to convert and import Sony a7S XAVC S videos to Final Cut Pro without any troubles.

Tutorial on converting Sony A7S XAVC S to Final Cut Pro 7 in simple steps

Step 1. Launch the XAVC S to ProRes Converter on your Mac, then click the adding button to import your XAVC S flies from HD drive or your camcorder directly.

Step 2. Click the Format bar to get the drop-down menu and you can get the Apple ProRes codecs, including ProRes 422 (HQ), ProRes 422, ProRes 422 (LT), ProRes 422 (Proxy) and ProRes 4444. Choose the proper one you want.

Step 3. Press the “Settings” icon and you’d better set the video frame rate as 30fps, video size as 1920*1080 for editing Sony HDR-AS100V footages in FCP 7 with best quality.

Step 4. Hit the Convert button in the main interface to start the XAVC S to FCP ProRes conversion on Mac OS X.

After the conversion, you can run the Final Cut Pro and click File --> Import --> Files to import the converted files and edit them in FCP without any rendering or unrecognizable problem.

P.S. If you want to make your Sony Alpha 7S XAVC S files editable in iMovie, FCE, Adobe Premiere, Avid Media Composer, etc. the Mac XAVC S Converter will also be a great choice for you. Choose a proper output format like “iMovie and Final Cut Express-Apple InterMediate Codec(AIC)(*.mov)” for iMovie in the second step.

In this article you will get the best workflow to import Sony A6000/A5000 AVCHD MTS files into iMovie and edit with native supported AIC .mov codec.

A5000: For beginners looking to upgrade from their point-and-shoot, searching for an affordable mirrorless camera and don’t mind making compromises, as long as the image quality as good, the camera is small and handy and all that for an affordable price.

A6000: For both advanced photographers (or if upgrading from an entry-level model), looking for a highly-capable mirrorless camera, and don’t mind paying more in favor of a viewfinder, better AF system, higher-res LCD, might take advantage of the Multi-interface shoe and very fast burst speed.

Movie Format: AVCHD 2.0 / MP4

Video Compression: AVCHD: MPEG-4 AVC/H.264, MP4: MPEG-4 AVC/H.264

The Sony A5000/A6000 can both record videos saved in the MTS extensions of the AVCHD format (Press the MOVIE button to start recording beautiful movies that are notable for their sharpness and lack of visual “noise”—in your choice of 60p/50p, 60i/50i or 24p/25p*) . But you will be disappointed when you import footage from Sony Alpha A6000/A5000 to iMovie for further editing and find all 60p MTS files are greyed out.

There are mainly two reasons why you can not transfer video files from Sony A6000/A5000 to iMovie, including iMovie 8/9/11. Firstly, the recordings with the codec H.264/MPEG-4 are highly compressed for saving storage space and smooth playback, but the H.264 files are not suitable for editing, so editing H.264 MTS files in iMovie is always a headache for editors. Secondly, up to now, iMovie can not always successfully recognize footages at 60fps (60p). So if you want to ingest 60p AVCHD footage to iMovie, you will sometimes meet the importing problem.

Well, no worry. Here I’d like to show you an easy way to fix the issue. Since Apple InterMediate Codec(AIC) is the most compatible codec introduced by App which ensures maximum editing quality and efficiency when working with iMovie, the common practice for working Sony a6000/a5000 MTS with iMovie is, get a Mac MTS to iMovie Converter and transcode Sony a6000/a5000 .mts footage to AIC MOV, which will save you both time and trouble. All you need is to drag the result videos for prompt editing.

Overall, the program is an easy-to-use yet professional app which can be used a Mac AVCHD MTS Converter under OS X Leopard (10.5), Snow Leopard (10.6), Lion (10.7), Mountain Lion (10.8) and Mavericks(10.9), Yosemite(10.10). It is free, clean and safe to install and use.

The Steps: Converting Sony A5000/A600 MTS to iMovie 11/10/09/08
