Sony XAVC S XAVC Video Converter for Mac and Windows

 Convert Sony XAVC S or XAVC to MP4, VOB, MPEG-2, AVI, WMV, MOV, FLV, Apple ProRes, DV etc

XAVC S and XAVC are Sony recording formats for Sony cameras.  XAVC is actually H.264/MPEG-4 AVC codec in a MXF format while XAVC S is actually H.264/MPEG-4 AVC codec in a MP4 format. XAVC and XAVC S are good recording formats, but not the playable or editable formats.

For Editing:

The XAVC in MXF format is supported by Sony Vegas Pro, Adobe Creative Suite 6, DaVinci Resolve, EDIUS Pro 7, etc, but not natively supported by PowerDirector, iMovie, Windows Movie Maker, etc.

The XAVC S in MP4 format is supported by PowerDirector, Adobe Premiere Elements, iMovie 10, FCP 10.2, Sony Movie Studio Platinum, etc, but not well supported by other versions of iMovie and FCP, and other widely used video editing programs.

For playback:

We know that XAVC S MP4 actually wraps H.264 and so is more recognized by many devices and media players. But things will be different when playing XAVC MXF. MXF, as one container format, has poor compatibility with many popular devices and media players although this XAVC MXF also wraps H.264 codec. Because we know that when playing container formats, you need to make sure that not only the wrapped codec, but also the container format is accepted by the device or media player.
