The XAVC format has been widely adopted in the marketplace. The format holds various advantages for high quality image reproduction including 4K pixel resolution, 10 bit color depth, wide color space (S-Gamut) and refined gamma (S-log). To serve the consumer market, “XAVC S” employing MP4 wrapping format is also introduced as its expansion of XAVC.
However, only little video editing software supports XAVC or XAVC S including Adobe Creative Suite 6, Avid, Final Cut Pro X, Grass Valley, Quantel, and Sony Vegas Pro 12. That is, it will end in fail if you try to import XAVC or XAVC S to the lower version of the above mentioned video editing software like import XAVC to Adobe Premiere Pro CS3/ CS4/ CS5, import XAVC (S) to Final Cut Pro 7/6 or Final Cut Express, or import XAVC to Sony Vegas 11 or lower version. And other video software like Windows Movie Maker and iMovie still cannot support XAVC (s) video files.
To convert 4K XAVC to Apple ProRes, a video convert app is necessary. Anyone here tried the iGooSoft Video Converter for Mac? I downloaded and tried it and found the program comes with the best ProRes profiles including ProRes 422, ProRes 422 HD. It seems meet the needs.
