  • Xavc-S into Edius 6.5

    Shooting with the new Sony A7S II and wondering if it can be imported into a Edius 6.5 bin and timeline?

    Most likely no! Since we got RX10 that has XAVC-S format and we tried. I guess there are two routes recompress or rewrap. We have been using recompression to MPEG 2 - 80MBps closed GOP. Initially used the newest available AVCHD File Conversion Utility - freely downloadable for Edius users. This case each clip has to be set for conversion manually or some basic sript has to prepared that feeds the clips for sequential conversion automatically.

    Now we moved to TMPEGEnc video mastering works 6 - still using MPEG 2 - 80MBps closed GOP. If clips are short you could re-compress to HQ or HQX.

    We have not tried rewraping to MOV - it could possibly also work http://hdcinematics.com/convert-V2.html

      For us the reason behind using MPEG2 is that it seems to be more responsive on our hardware, especially in 1080 50p multi-cam mode.

        Rewarp XAVC-S (MP4) to MOV

        How do I remap the MP4 to MOV?
        Is this simply changing the file extension? Or is there a software utility for this?
        I have used AFX to convert my files to Edius HQ so far.
        I do the same thing with my RAW BMPCC files.

          Just seen this post and was wondering I have just updated my Sony HXR-NX3 with Version 2 Firmware which now enables it to record XAVC S Files and have not had a chance to test it, the question is I have Edius Workgroup 8.1 will this format work without converting it in version 8.1 workgroup?

            If it isn't any different than the non firmware upgraded codec it will be accepted. The performance will depend on your system.

              Edius 8.1 WG will be fine with XAVC-S it will be a little more resource hungry than your AVCHD that you were using prior to tha firmware upgrade.

                XAVC-S into Edius 6.5

                Actually my original question was getting XAVC-S into Edius 6.5,
                I have Edius 7.4 on my other workstations and they all handle XAVC-S without any issues. So it should work fine in any version of Edius from 7.4 and up.

                However my home system is stuck on 6.5 (until I build a new NLE PC for versions 8). So I was hoping to do some work at home with my XAVC-S files.

                  You will need to download the AVCHD File Conversion Utility (AVC2HQ) found in the registered users section under (General) Utilities.
                  Convert to HQ or HQX and you will be off and running.
