This guide totally told us ths way how to work Sony PXW-X70 XAVC 50-mbit Clips well with Avid Media Composer.
You got any XAVC files recorded by Sony PXW-X70? The camera records broadcast quality 1920 x 1080 HD video using a variety of codec, at 4:2:2 10-bit in XAVC, AVCHD and DV format. Although the PXW-X70 offers us a wide choice for video recording format, it seems that the post-production is not as easy as we image. And you will find it a painful experience to import XAVC 50-mbit Clips from Sony PXW-X70 to Avid Media Composer.
Q1: Avid cannot see Sony PXW-X70 XAVC 50-mbit clips? Anyone having an issue getting Avid to accept the XAVC 50-mbit clips from the new Sony PXW-X70?
Q2: Sony PXW-X70 XAVC files cannot be 'seen' by Avid MC. I have purchased a Sony PXW-X70 which as far as I can see performs very well indeed with the test footage I have shot. But how do you get the XAVC quality footage into Avid?
No doubt we now need a professional converter for help, but not all converting tool can do this job with the high quality reserved, right? However Pavtube XAVC to Avid Converter for Mac could do this well.
Download it here and follow my steps with several easy operations.
When you install the program on your computer, launch it and open the main interface, on the left corner above, 'Add video' and 'Add from folder' can smoothly import your original files in. How to find the Avid as the output? Drop down the 'Format' list, you will see the item 'Avid Media Composer'>>'Avid DNxHD (*.mov). For another way, you can also search it in the 'search box'.
Tips: Adjust video and audio parameters, including the Bitrate of Video and Audio, the Codec of Video and Audio, Video Size, Sample Rate, Frame Rate, Audio Channels, etc., in the Profile 'Settings' to get XAVC files converted for working with Vegas Pro smoothly. You'd better adjust original 4K video to HD quality. Just as the screenshot showed:
In the end, click the 'Convert' button to start transcoding XAVC files for Avid. After the process completes, click "Open" button to find the generated videos, and then you can transfer and edit the Sony PXW-X70 video in Avid Media Composer easily and quickly.
