Sony DSC-RX100 IV camera features the world’s first memory-attached 1.0-type stacked CMOS image sensor, making it possible to capture stunning 4K movies with up to 40x super slow motion, spectacular still images, and more. What’s more impressive is its capacity to shoot and record 4K videos employing the XAVC S codec to ensure beautiful footage with high bit rate recording.

However, being a quite new compression format that provides low compression for high-quality movie expression, the XAVC S is not an ideal format for most non-linear editing systems (NLE) including Final Cut Pro. In addition, it also would be a bit hard to handle 4K video with Final Cut Pro. Although Sony provides some plugins, it seems that the process is complex and sometimes you will encounter different importing issues like import slowly, no audio after importing, etc. Fortunately, you are able to fix all these problems with the help of a professional video converter software called UFUWare Video Converter for Mac.
