Sony HDR-AS200V XAVC S to Windows Movie Maker Import Issues

Meet the NEW Action Cam HDR AS200V, the highest image quality of all Full HD Action Cam ever. You may have got the Sony HDR-AS200V camera which recorded some full-HD footages in XAVC S format. Do you have a desire to import XAVC S to Windows Movie Maker for editing?

XAVC S, a new format introduced by Sony with MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 level 5.2, the highest picture resolution and frame rate video compression codec is much more than a video format that Windows Movie Maker can support. So, it’s not strange that you have met so many XAVC S to WMM import issues.

First of all, let’s look at a case found online. “I have a bunch of XAVC S files from a Sony HDR-AS200V. I’m running Vista 64. What is the easiest way to import XAVC S to Windows Movie Maker? When I try to import, WMM won’t allow me to use the XAVC S files as it doesn’t have the codec for it.”

Do you have the same problem as mentioned above? Want to import XAVC S to Windows Movie Maker for editing, but only to find the loading fails. Or for some unknown reasons, the XAVC S footages become lossy. In order to make the Sony AS200V XAVC S files work smoothly in WMM, you need to be clear what file formats are supported for importing into the editing tool first. You can import files with the following file extensions into Windows Movie Maker:
Videos: AVI, ASF, MPEG, MPG, WMV, and MP2
Audios: MP3, MP2, AIFF, ASF, AU, WAV and WMA

As you can see, XAVC is not among the accepted video types by WMM. To load XAVC S files into WMM, you should convert XAVC S to one of the video formats mentioned above. Pavtube Video Converter is perfect for you to finish the conversion job on any Windows computer, such as Windows 7, 8, Vista and XP. It will save you both time and trouble, and all you need to do is to drag the result videos for prompt editing.


Detailed steps about importing XAVC S to Windows Movie Maker:

Step 1: Download, set up and run the XAVC S to Windows Movie Maker Converter. Click the “Add video” icon on the top left of the panel, or directly drag and drop to add the XAVC S shootings to the program.

Step 2: Click “Format” bar to select suitable format for Windows Movie Maker. Choose “HD Video>>WMV HD (*.wmv)” as best output format.

Step 3: Click the “Settings” button and set proper video/ audio parameters. My advice is to set the video size, bit rate and fame rate to be exactly as the footages so that you will suffer least quality degradation. If you would like to use default settings, simply skip this step.

Step 4: After all necessary settings, hit the “Convert” button to start the XAVC S to Windows Movie Maker best supported WMV conversion. If you have added quite a bunch of XAVC S files, it would take some time to convert. In such case, you can click “Option” and tick the box “Shut down the computer after conversion”.

Conclusion: After the conversion, you can easily locate the converted XAVC S files by clicking the “Open” button in the main interface. Then, you can bring and edit XAVC S in Windows Movie Maker without any issue.
