Import Sony XAVC/XAVC S footage to Avid Media Composer

When importing and editing Sony XAVC/XAVC S videos in Avid Media Composer, users always encounter video and audio problems, as XAVC (.mxf) or XAVC S (*.mp4) format is efficient, but simply isn’t engineered to maintain quality during complex post production effects processing. Uncompressed HD format delivers superior image quality, but data rates and file sizes can stop a workflow dead in its tracks. Well, Avid DNxHD format delivers both efficiency and quality without compromises. So, before transferring Sony XAVC/XAVC S to Avid MC, you’d better convert Sony XAVC/XAVC S to Avid DNxHD for smoothly editing.
