File format

Just purchased the Sony A7S. Will be filming primarily in XAVC format and editing in FCPX and FCP6. Need recommendation on good file converter program, to convert XAVC files to Apple ProRes files for editing in FCP. Thanks!

FCPX will do it internally. You could also use Adobe Media Encoder or Apple Compressor. EditReady which NFS just did an article on is also an option.

This is what I use. I convert all of my footage to Apple ProRes for instant editing in FCP7.

Does anybody know if Davinci Resolve can convert XAVC files to Prores/Prores Proxy for editing in FCPX? Kind of like how one would use the round-tripping work flow for the BMPCC raw files?

Thanks!
