"As far as I know the latest XAVC S high-speed format introduced by Sony WX500 is still not supported well by Premiere Pro CC so far. If you want import XAVC S into Premiere Pro CC? This article will show you the XAVC S to Premiere Pro CC workflow on Mac."
Why our users love Sony WX500 camera so much?
Like the HX90, the WX500 is designed to meet the requirements of novice photographers and offers a collection of automatic shooting options, but there are also exposure modes to suit more experienced photographers: shutter priority, aperture priority and manual. Videos, however, can be shot in Full-HD at 8 bit and 4:2:0 at up to 50Mbps in AVCHD, MP4 or the new XAVC S format at 50/60p.
Causes of XAVC S files cannot be suitable for Premiere Pro CC/CS?
Granted, Premiere Pro CC/CS can handle (usually) 4K XAVC S files without much problem, but it is extremely hardware intensive. Thankfully you probably don't have to buy a new computer, but you do need to convert XAVC S to Adobe Premiere Pro using MPEG-2 (1080p) as primary delivery format (Native support formats by Adobe Premiere). As same as the issues appeared in other NLEs like FCP, iMovie, FCE, After Effects, Avid Media Composer, etc., so let's find the solutions below:
- XAVC S to iMovie/FCE | XAVC S to DaVinci Resolve Lite | XAVC S to FCP X | XAVC to Avid MC |XAVC S to Aperture 3
