How to import Sony XAVC footage to Cyberlink PowerDirector?
As we know, Some Sony camcorders are shooting footage in XAVC format – a file type not well supported by most popular professional video editing software, like Cyberlink Power Director, which is a video editing software application for non-linear video editing, published by CyberLink Corporation. It allows users to capture, edit and output from within the software and has semi-professional features suitable for the consumer level. If you longed to edit your Sony XAVC footage with Cyberlink PowerDirector, it’s not impossible with help from third-party software.
Well, on Cyberlink PowerDirector’s specifications page, it is clearly displayed what kind of video files are supported by the program, and XAVC is still not in the list even for the current PowerDirector 11. So it’s understandable that PowerDirector refuse to load XAVC shootings from a Sony’s PMW-F5, Sony PMW-F55, Sony PXW-X70, Sony PXW-X180, Sony PXW-Z100, etc camcorder. To edit Sony XAVC footage in PowerDirector, the easy workaround is to convert XAVC files to PowerDirector supported video formats, like AVI, MKV, MP4, MOV, MPEG, VOB, WMV, etc.
