Converting Sony FDR-AX100 XAVC S for Editing in Avid

Summary: Follow the guide you can convert Sony XAVC S files from Sony FDR-AX100 to Avid Media Composer compatible DNxHD .mov for editing without video, audio issue.

The black Sony FDR-AX100 Full HD Camcorder brings 4K Ultra HD video to the palm of your hand, delivering resolution four times that of Full HD. One of the favored feature of the camcorder is that can record 4K XAVC S files. As far as I know, XAVC S is a new recording format which can support 4K resolution (3840 * 2160) at up to 60 fps. However, every coin has two sides- XAVC S is still not as popular as other kinds of video formats such as AVCHD and MXF. So when you deal with the Sony FDR-AX100 XAVC-S in Avid MC or other NLE systems, you may encounter some format compatibility or video/audio synchronization problems. This article is written to help Sony FDR-AX100 users to solve such kind of problems.

Avid has been out of the gate to support XAVC HD, but there’s still no XAVC-S support in AMA links like most Avid workflows. To solve these problems effectively, it will be better to transcode Sony XAVC S to a more "edit" friendly codec. Brorsoft Video Converter for Mac is highly recommended here. The program is an easy-to-use yet professional Sony XAVC S Converter for Avid Media Composer. It's able to convert XAVC S files from Sony FDR-AX100, FDR-AX1 to Avid more compatible format DNxHD. For Windows users, Video Converter is the alternative choice. Just download it and follow the tutorial below to get the work done.

Step 1: Load XAVC S footages

Step 2: Choose a proper output format

Click “Format” bar to choose output format. For transferring Sony AX100 footage to Avid MC, you are recommended to choose “Avid Media Composer -> DNxHD (*.mov)”.

Tip: Click the “Settings” button and set proper video/ audio parameters. You can reset set the video size, bitrate and fame rate. If you would like to use default settings, simply skip this step.
