Import/Convert Sony A6300 4K XAVC S to ProRes for FCP 7/X

April 12, 2016

Below I will take a XAVC S to FCP Converter app to show you how to convert Sony A6300 4K xavc s footage to ProRes .mov for editing in Final Cut Pro 7, FCP X on Mac OS X in details.

Sony has introduced the long-awaited update to its popular a6000 mirrorless camera: the a6300. Featuring a newly developed 24 Megapixel APS-C sensor and a completely revamped '4D' AF system with 425 phase-detection AF points, the a6300 sits at the top of Sony's APS-C mirrorless lineup. It also appears poised to break down one of the last remaining strongholds of DSLR by a live feed of the action in between frames, with minimal blackout, at a respectable 8 fps shooting rate, with AF.

Key Features:

24MP CMOS APS-C sensor with copper wiring
425-point on-sensor phase-detection AF system
11 fps continuous shooting (8 fps continuous live view)
2.4m dot XGA OLED Tru-Finder with 120 fps refresh rate
Silent shooting in continuous drive (3 fps with AF/AE)
Max ISO of 51200
4K video capture up to 100 Mbps
Phase-detect AF compatible with A-mount lenses via LA-EA3 adapter
Magnesium alloy design with upgraded dust and moisture resistance

Well, you can record videos with A6300 Sony's XAVC S format. But, is there any possible workflow for Sony A6300 XAVC S to Final Cut Pro? Can Final Cut Pro ingest 4K XAVC S videos from Sony A6300? The result may let you down- FCP including FCP X won’t open and import Sony A63004K footage correctly. What caused the issues? Based on our testing, it may due to the high video resolution and the video codec incompatibility.

Actually, Apple does not respond on the issues and no one here knows or can say when, if ever, XVAC-S will be natively supported by FCP (X). To edit Sony a6300 XAVC S in Final Cut Pro X/7, a workaround is to transcode Sony A6300 4K XAVC S to a more editable format for FCP with proper settings under Mac OS X.
