can't import XAVC into FC7
on Sep 5, 2013 at 5:35:17 pm

Hi all,
I hope someone can help. We shot a multicam shoot using F55's and now when we are trying to import the XAVC Intra HD files into FC we are getting an error that says that there may be no codec for FC. We did try a third party solution to transcode the footage but it seems to translate the footage to 28MBS instead of the 50MBS that the footage was shot in.
Has anyone encountered this problem?

Thanks!

You need to get the codec from Panasonic. I don't know whether it works with FCP7 but it works for Avid MC6. Try it. The AVC Intra codec should also be working within FCP.

cheers

Rainer

The F55 is a Sony camera, so Panasonic won't be of any help. FCP7 does not work with XAVC at all. You'll need a converter to encode the footage to ProRes.

FCX and Davinci allow me to import and transcode the footage but the prores HQ files still end up being 28MB/Second. Strange.

Not really strange. You are converting from one format to another. From the native rate the camera shoots to ProRes. ProRes is compressed. Compressed very well, and differently than the camera codec, but still compressed.

Doesn't ProRes accommodate higher data rates?

There isn't a 1:1 transfer of data rate. ProRes, like many if not all codecs, has it's own data rate:

Don't focus on the MB/s...the data rate of the source vs what's it's converted to. Those don't translate across the board when you convert. There's a lot more going on.

honestly, the only time I've run into problems is when I have had to output shows for the BBC. I'm going to stop worrying about it.

Thanks for your help!

Beware the Capital B. The Sony XDCam codec is 50 Mbits/s and ProRes HQ is 28MB/s or 220 Mbit/s so the file size should be much bigger. The F55 can also shoot 220 Mbit/s using Sony's 220 Mbps 4:2:2 SR codec. In that case the file size should be almost the same.

old thread, just try to update to fcp x, then you can import xavc without any problem.

Some guys recommend to download and install the XAVC Plug-in for Apple (PDZK-LT2) provided by Sony. However, this plug-in requires Final Cut Pro X 10.0.8 or higher for XAVC format. For those who can’t install the XAVC Plug-in correctly and Final Cut Pro 6 or FCP 7 users, there’s also an alternative way. Hope the information can be helpful to you.
