Sony is very smart. In 2012, it has set goals to push 4K content into the professional and consumer market by releasing the CinaAlta 4K camcorder PMW-F5/F55. One year later, it moves a step forward with the newest 4K model--PXW-Z100. Taking a familiar Handycam form, adapting the same Sony-style XAVC format, that doesn't mean there aren't changes. Actually, the PXW-Z100 is more of refined improvement, which meets nearly all our expectations for 4K contents.
For most videographers, they not only want a good camcorder with great shooting performance, they also need a secure and worry-free post editing workflow. Those who use Sony Vegas Pro 12 will find it a piece of cake to edit the XAVC footages. However, the users of Final Cut Pro, expecially FCP7, will be left stranded since it cannot support XAVC at all. Thankfully, nothing is impossible in this highly developed digital world. Using a powerful XAVC Converter for Mac by Firecoresoft, it is incredible simple to edit PXW-Z100 XAVC in FCP7. The user-friendly interface of the converter makes it easy enough for everyone to transfer PXW-Z100 to FCP7 smoothly.
Now, let's talk about the steps of converting PXW-Z100 to FCP7 with this all-in-one XAVC to FCP Converter for Mac.
Now that the converter has been installed onto your computer, you should run it and enter the interface. Then, drag and drop the PXW-Z100 XAVC footages into the program. You can also import the source files by hitting the "Add Files" button on the tool bar.

To edit PXW-Z100 XAVC in FCP7, you can press the "Profile" button, when a format list shows up, you need to choose "Final Cut Pro" > "Apple ProRes 422 (*mov)" as the output format.
