Summary: Don’t worry if you are trapped in converting XAVC S footage to MPEG-2 for After Effects CC editing from Sony WX500. The following article can offer you the best solution.
Q1: Why our users love Sony WX500 camera so much?
Like the HX90, the WX500 is designed to meet the requirements of novice photographers and offers a collection of automatic shooting options, but there are also exposure modes to suit more experienced photographers: shutter priority, aperture priority and manual. Videos, however, can be shot in Full-HD at 8 bit and 4:2:0 at up to 50Mbps in AVCHD, MP4 or the new XAVC S format at 50/60p.
Q2: Causes of XAVC S files cannot be suitable for After Effects CC?
Granted, After Effects CC can handle (usually) 4K XAVC S files without much problem, but it is extremely hardware intensive. Thankfully you probably don’t have to buy a new computer, but you do need to convert XAVC S to After Effects CC using MPEG-2 (1080p) as primary delivery format. As same as the issues appeared in other NLEs like FCP, or iMovie/FCE, so let’s find the solutions below.
Q3: Any good professional converting tools can offered to us?
For me, of course, I don’t like convert my source videos, because the quality loss (even you can’t tell from your eyes), but if you have been driven crazy by this problem, then you may like to have a try.
