Summary: A quick and easy solution to make your XAVC/XAVC-S video compatible with EDIUS Pro 7/8 with the maximum editing quality and efficiency.
Sony had expanded XAVC to the consumer market with the release of XAVC S, which supports resolution ups to 3840*2160 with MP4 container format and AAC or LCPM for the audio. The XAVC S format has been used in the Sony FDR-AX100 4K Ultra HD consumer camcorder and Sony HDR-AS100V action camera. The Sony A7S as well as some consumer stills camera with movie support also offer XAVC S.
The latest version of EDIUS vesion 7.41 and its later version supports all types of XAVC and XAVC-S. But for its former versions such as EDIUS Pro 6.5 or, people will often complained that they get only audio but no video files when importing the XAVC video footage to EDIUS Pro for editing. This error can be caused by the unrecognized codec contained in your XAVC video footage.
To solve above mentioned problems, you will need to transcode or rewrap the video files that you are going to edit with EDIUS Pro 7/8 into one single file format or codec that can be easily recognized by EDIUS Pro 7/8 as below:
Video format: 3GPP, AVCHD, AVC-Intra (4K 444/4K 422/4K-LT/200/100/50), AVC LongG, AVI, DIF stream, DVCPRO(DVCPRO HD/50/25), Flash Video, MPEG HHD MOVIE, MPEG Program Stream, MPEG Transport Stream, MPEG Video Stream, MPEG File, MXF, P2 Clip File, QuickTime Movie, RED File, SONY HVR-DR60/HVR-MRC1 Meta File, Transport Stream (MPEG2, H.264), Windows Media*1, XAVC, XAVC-S, XDCAM, XDCAM EX, XF Clip File.
Audio format: AAC Files, AIFF Files, Dobly Digital (AC-3), Dobly Digital (AC-3) (for professional), MPEG Audio Layer-3, MPEG Audio Stream, Ogg Vorbis Files, Wave Files, Windows Media Audio.
