The a7S uses XAVC S recording format, but the problem is at present XVAC-S, a long GOP inter-frame codec, does not appear to be supported by Final Cut Pro. 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 a7S XAVC S footage in FCP smoothly, a suggestion is to transcode "XAVC S" to "ProRes", which is the native support format by FCP. According to your situation, what you need is to find a professional XAVC S converter that enables you change XAVC S files from Sony a7S to FCP ProRes keeping original quality.
