Sony pulled off the wraps of FDR-AX33, which the company claims it’s the most compact 4K Handycam camcorder to date that brings the wonders of 4K personal content creation to a wider audience than ever before, delivering crystal clear 4K video from the palm of your hand. The camcorder has the ability to record 4K video in 4K XAVC format, which may take up big occupation on the camcorder market in the future. However, the problem that filmmaker considered is that how to make these outstanding 4K XAVC videos into Sony Vegas Pro 13 or other NLEs for editing smoothly.

4K XAVC format is efficient, but simply isn’t engineered to maintain quality during complex post production effects processing. Uncompressed HD format delivers superior image quality, but data rates and file sizes can stop a workflow dead in its tracks. On the contrary, Sony Vegas MPEG-2 MPG format delivers both efficiency and quality without compromises. So, before editing AX33 4K XAVC in Sony Vegas Pro 13, you’d better convert XAVC to Sony Vegas MPEG-2 MPG with a powerful third party program. After testing countless freeware and commercial software, I highly recommend Pavtube Video Converter to you. It is the best XAVC Converter for you to encode AX33 4K XAVC files for Sony Vegas Pro 13 smooth editing on Windows 8.1/8.

Step 1: Run the best XAVC to Sony Vegas Pro 13 Converter, and click the “Add video” button to load 4K XAVC videos from Sony FDR-AX33. If you want to load several files at one time, “Add from folder” button is available.

Step 2: Click “Format” bar to determine output format. Follow “Adobe Premiere/Sony Vegas” and select “MPEG-2(*.mpg)” as the output format. Besides, you can also choose WMV (VC-1) (*.wmv) if you want to get a relatively smaller output file.

Step 3: Adjust video and audio parameters, including the bit rate of video and audio, the codec of video and audio, video size, sample rate, frame rate, audio channels, etc., in the Profile Settings by hitting “Settings” button.

Step 4: Click “Convert” button to start encoding Sony FDR-AX33 4K XAVC files to MPG for importing to Sony Vegas Pro 13.

Sony EX-1 XDCAM MXF Files and FCP X Incompatibility Issues on Mac Yosemite has Fixed!

As time goes by, more and more digital cameras have been released during the days. Also, some problems are followed here, such as can’t give a playback on media players or open in editing software, right?

Recently, I found a post on the forum said there are always some issues when importing Sony EX-1 XDCAM MXF files in FCP X for a further editing. Back to the causes, XDCAM is a series of products for digital recording using random access solid-state memory media, introduced by Sony. It has four different product lines, including the XDCAM SD (SD XDCAM is an IMX format wrapped in an MXF file), XDCAM HD, XDCAM EX and XDCAM HD422, differing in types of encoder used, frame size, container type and in recording media.

XDCAM SD records MXF file-based media to an optical disc format. XDCAM HD extends XDCAM to include HD video. XDCAM EX adds full-resolution 1920*1080 or 1280*720 modes and ExpressCard-based recording. XDCAM HD422 doubles the chroma-resolution compared to the previous generations of high-definition video XDCAM formats.

Since XDCAM isn’t the greatest thing to use in FCP X and MXF, which is a container format, indeed gets the limitation with FCP X, so third-party software to convert XDCAM MXF files from Sony EX-1 to FCP X best supported Apple ProRes 422 MOV format is the ideal tool. An effective method and highly recommended software Pavtube HD Video Converter for Mac can handle very well.

                        

Steps to convert Sony EX-1 XDCAM MXF files to FCP X for editing on Mac Yosemite:

Step 1: Open up the best MXF Mac Converter. Click “Add video” button to browse and load your source files. If you need to import an entire file folder directly, simply click “Add from folder” tab.

Step 2: For a second step, to find the ProRes .mov for FCP X, drop down the output list, “Final Cut Pro>>Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov)” is waiting there, or surely you can search it in the “searching box”.



Tips: “Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov)” and “Apple ProRes 422 (HQ) (*.mov)” have higher qualities. “Apple ProRes 422 (LT) (*.mov)” and “Apple ProRes 422 (Proxy) (*.mov)” have smaller size. You can choose according to your requirement.

Step 3: Why not take around the “Settings” button on the main interface? Here, we can adjust our video size, (just according to personal requirements), bitrates or frame rate, remember that you should set them in appropriate default or you might not get an ideal effect.

Step 4: Finally, click “Convert” button. No worries about too long you should wait there. After converting, you can get the converted MXF files you need on Mac Yosemite and edit them in FCP X smoothly.

Conclusion: Once you work with MXF footage, there seems to lack multiple track solution, right? Here we recommend you the iMixMXF, which has the strong ability of smoothly converting MXF files with multi-track.

Convert H.265/HEVC Footages to MPEG-2 for Burning to DVD Disc on Windows 8.1

What is H.265 and how does it differ from the former codec H.264? For burning to DVD Disc on Windows 8.1, how to convert H.265/HEVC footages to DVD Disc supported format? This article is written around these questions.

Q1: What is H.265/HEVC?
A:High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) is the latest generation video compression standard. This standard was developed by the ISO/IEC Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) and ITU-T Video Coding Experts Group (VCEG), through their Joint Collaborative Team on Video Coding (JCT-VC). HEVC is also known as ISO/IEC 23008-2 MPEG-H Part 2 and ITU-T H.265. HEVC provides superior video quality and up to twice the data compression as the previous standard (H.264/MPEG-4 AVC). HEVC can support 8K Ultra High Definition video, with a picture size up to 8192×4320 pixels.

Q2: What’s the difference between H.265 and the previous standard H.264?
A: H.264 has been a huge success. It’s a flexible codec standard that’s used by streaming services, satellite providers, and for Blu-ray discs. It’s scaled remarkably well since it was first proposed and is capable of handling 3D, 48-60 fps encodes, and even 4K. The Blu-ray disc standard doesn’t currently include provisions for some of these technologies, but the H.264 codec itself is capable of handling them.

However, while it can handle these types of encodes, it can’t do so while simultaneously keeping file sizes low. A new standard is necessary to push file/stream sizes back down while driving next-generation adoption, and that’s where H.265 comes in. It’s designed to utilize substantially less bandwidth thanks to advanced encoding techniques and a more sophisticated encode/decode model.

Q3: How to convert H.265/HEVC footages for burning to DVD Disc on Windows 8.1?
A: In order to convert H.265/HEVC footages to DVD Disc supported format for burning, here you are fortunately to have Pavtube Video Converter, which supports encoding/decoding the H.265/HEVC videos nicely. With this best video converter, it works well in converting H.265/HEVC video files to DVD Disc supported MPEG-2 format for burning on Windows 8.1.
Tips: For Mac users, Video Converter for Mac is for your reference.

Specific guide on how to convert H.265/HEVC videos to MPEG-2 for burning DVD Disc on Windows 8.1:

Step 1: As soon as you launch the H.265 encoder/decoder, we suggest you to add your files for the first step; “Add video” and “Add from folder” can be your good choices.

Step 2: Open the output list through the “Format” bar, and then drop down the list. To burn a DVD Disc, choose “Common Video>>MPEG-2 Video (*.mpg)” as best output format.

Tips: If you want to combine multiple H.265 files to be a single one, you can tick off the checkbox “Merge into one file”.

Step 3: Finally, just tap the ‘Convert’ on the main interface; we can get our work started. Surely, for those advanced users, if you are familiar with this program, why not take around the “Settings’’ or “Edit” button to adjust more? You won’t be disappointed with these two functional items.

Conclusion: This all-in-one video converter can convert nearly everything to your wanted devices and formats. After converting H.265/HEVC files to MPEG-2 format, you can burn the converted video to DVD Disc for sharing and keeping. Just grab a free trial of the converter to enjoy it and happy Valentine’s Day!
Tips: The newly released Pavtube DVD Creator program makes DVD creation much easier than ever before. It lets you burn any kind of video sources to playable DVDs within a few clicks.

This article walks you through the whole process of converting 3D MTS footages to MOV Side-by-Side 3D Video with best 3D effects on 3D TV on Mac. Don’t forget your 3D glasses.

3D is a fantastic technology that was once only reserved for ultra exclusive film studios. Now, many users can purchase stereoscopic 3D cameras like Sony Handycam 3D at decent prices. However, it receives cheers and boos. The only problem is that many users are facing the problem while playing Sony Handycam 3D MTS on 3D TV. What’s the reason and is there any way to view 3D MTS videos from Sony Handycam on a 3D TV with ease?

First of all, let’s look at a case:
“I’ve ordered a brand new Sony HDR-TD 10 3D-Camcorder. I just wonder how to watch my Sony 3D MTS recordings on my Samsung 3D Smart TV with 3D effect. I did a lot of tests with some freeware, but in the final movie clip 3D images are not aligned perfectly, as if they were slightly shifted.”

With all of the surrounding of 3D technology and production in the last few years, more and more TVs can support stereoscopic 3D. Samsung 3D Smart TV, Sony 3D LED TV, LG 3D TV and so on are impossible to play Sony Handycam 3D MTS files directly because of the format limitation.

The most effective way to transcode and play 3D MTS footages on 3D TV, a 3D MTS converter is a must. Here I highly recommend Pavtube 3D MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac I have used. It works perfectly for converting 3D MTS files to a proper format for easy playback on 3D TV keeping original 3D effects.

How to convert 3D MTS to SBS 3D MOV/MKV/MP4/AVI for smooth playback on 3D TV with 3D effects?

Step 1: Backup your 3D MTS video from your camcorder to hard drive. Install and launch 3D MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac. Drag and drop 3D MTS files to the software. You can import multiple files at once thanks to batch conversion.

Step 2: Set 3D TV friendly format. Click the drop-down list in the format line to get the format box. Then choose “3D Video>>MOV Side-by-Side 3D Video (*.mov)” as output format.
Tips: Generally, MOV is a well-accepted file format for its ability to save memory storage and keep up the video quality. Of course, 3D Video in .mp4 and 3D Video in .mkv and 3D Video in .avi are all supported as well.

Step 3: If you like, you could adjust video codec, bitrate, frame rate and so on to get better video quality in saved 3D MOV video. Meanwhile, you could choose 3D anaglyph and Depth in Profile Settings to avoid images misaligned. It’s optional.

Step 4: You can preview to check the final result. Once you are satisfied with it, click the “Convert” button to start converting Sony Handycam 3D MTS video files to MOV Side-by-Side 3D Video format. It will take you a little while.
