Sony's PMW-RX50 XDCAM Mobile Recorder features a compact and lightweight design, and SxS recording and playback capabilities.

Ever tried to import Sony PMW-RX50 XAVC to Avid Media Composer or other video editing programs to do further editing. Okay. This article will talk about the Sony PMW-RX50 XAVC to Avid MC workflow. Just read on to get some tips and tricks.

From its specs, we can know the PMW-RX50 mobile recorder plays and records Full HD XAVC Intra and XAVC Long GOP(as well as MPEG HD 422 50 Mbps, MPEG HD 420 35Mbps, MPEG IMX and DVCAM), which is actually designed to pair with the PXW-X500. While, if you want to edit the XAVC recordings from Sony RX50, you may find the high quality XAVC files are not recognized by Avid Media Composer. So, how to get Avid Media Composer ingest XAVC clips from PMW-RX50 to correctly?

Since we can't work XVAC videos in NLEs easily, for working Sony PMW-RX50 recordings in Avid smoothly, it is necessary to convert those already shot XAVC files to DnxHD .mov using third-party software. I recommended you to try Brorsoft Video Converter for Mac, which is a professional tool for Mac users to transcode Sony XAVC to Avid MC with the best quality.

With it, you can effortlessly transcode XAVC codec to DNxHD encoded MOV files for Avid keeping the original quality. Besides Avid Media Composer, this software can also export ProRes for Final Cut Pro, MPEG-2 for Adobe Premiere Pro, Apple InterMediate Codec for iMovie and more NLE systems for native editing.
