Sony α7 II XAVC-S in Avid MC-Work and Edit Sony A7 ii video clips with Avid Media Composer

In this page, we'll study the Sony A7 ii to Avid Media Composer workflow to deal with the XAVC S footage in an effective way.

Sony has released the α7 II (ILCE-7M2), the next in the α7 series of interchangeable-lens models and the world’s first camera with optical 5-axis image stabilization designed for a full-frame image sensor.The camera offers outstanding image quality in a compact size and light build, and it carries on the traditions of the α7 series, which includes the world’s smallest and lightest interchangeable-lens full-frame camera (α7R). A 24.3 effective megapixel 35 mm full-frame Exmor® CMOS sensor moves along five axes to compensate for camera shake, providing optical image stabilization equivalent to up to 4.5 steps faster shutter speed of correction for still images.

Recording Format-Movies: XAVC S / AVCHD format Ver. 2.0 compliant / MP4

For extremely high image quality and minimal noise, record movies in the high-bit-rate XAVC S format, which was developed based on the professional XAVC 4K/HD format.

When you want to import and edit XAVC S clips from Sony A7 ii in Avid MC, it would be a bit harder.

"I am trying to work with files from the new Sony a7 ii into Avid Media Composer. The camera uses a flavor of MP4 that is called XAVC-S. I (and apparently others) have tried the traditional importing method -- and it's a no-go. We have also tried AMA using Sony's XAVC AMA plugin, however the plug-in does not seem to support XAVC-S."

Actually, Avid uses DNxHD as a codec technology, engineered to create mastering-quality media at reduced file sizes, shattering the barriers to real-time productivity.
