Q2: Use Sony F55 XAVC in Sony Vegas Pro
"I have some F55 XAVC footage I'd like to use in Sony Vegas Pro. Seems that it's still unsupported? Am I missing something or is this still unsupported? Does anyone know what I can possibly do???"
PMW-F5 and PMW-F55 are two of the new CineAlta 4K digital cinema cameras of Sony which can record superb footages of XAVC 4K and 180 fps XAVC 2K/HD. These new camera models are now reaching to the top of the high-end professional camcorder market. However, the XAVC recording format coming out along with the PMW-F5/F55, is not yet as popular as the cameras so that it is hard to find an editor to edit/conduct post production to such new format footages. Sony Vegas Pro 12 as it claimed can natively support Sony PMW-F5/F55 XAVC format footages; however, older version of Vegas like Sony Vegas Pro 8.0/9.0/10 do not fully support XAVC. To avoid any video, audio incompatibility issues, here we outline how to import Sony F5/ F55 XAVC to Sony Vegas, including Vegas Pro 12.
To achieve the goal, you need a professional XAVC Converter to change the XAVC format first. Here Brorsoft Video Converter is right what you are looking for.
