The aptly-named Sony A7R II shares the much-improved ergonomic redesign introduced by its A7 II sibling, as well as presenting a whole host of new features and technology aimed at providing the utmost in image and video quality as well as performance. The Sony A7 II is a more matured, more well-rounded camera and therefore an even more enticing option for those wanting full-frame image quality but not a full-frame DSLR-sized camera. Like the A7S before it, the A7R II is able to capture ultra-high-resolution 4K video (3840 x 2160), however, unlike the “S” model, it can record 4K video internally to the memory card. The A7R II makes use of Sony’s higher bitrate XAVC S file format, which supports 4K bitrates up to 100Mbps.

Thus, here comes the problem that the XAVC S video format is hardly compatible with many NLEs, like Final Cut Pro (FCP X, FCP 7, FCP 6), iMovie/Final Cut Express, Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere Pro, Windows Movie Maker, etc.

To import XAVC S flies into Avid/Davinci Resolve for smooth editing, you’d better update your program to the latest version. Alternatively, third-party software is required to convert XAVC S to iMovie or FCE natively supported format like DNxHD MOV. UFUWare XAVC Converter for Mac is highly recommended here.

This program not only can deal with heavy XAVC S files to Avid/Davinci Resolve compatible video format, but also supplies other powerful video codecs for NLEs, such as ProRes for Final Cut Pro, MPEG-2 for Adobe Premiere Pro, AIC for iMovie/FCE and so on. Moreover, this ideal converting tool is equipped with basic editing functions including trimming, cropping, adding watermark, removing audio and more.
