Convert XAVC footage to MOV, MKV, MP4, AVI, MPG, WMV, FLV for playing, editing, uploading or burning

“I’d like to convert some files from my PMW-F5 to Apple ProRes files to edit in Final Cut Pro. But my converter stopped working during the conversion after 100 files, and now I can't convert any files. Nothing. I've tried everything. I still have 400 more files to convert! Any suggestion?”

XAVC, as a brand new recording format introduced by Sony and used for its CineAlta 4K cameras like Sony PMW-F55 and Sony PMW-F5, has caught professional photographers and moviemakers’ eyes for its high quality image reproduction and vivid audio playback. While if you want to play Sony XAVC recordings in media player like QuickTime or Windows Media player, or edit in Final Cut Pro, iMovie, or Adobe Premiere, or upload to YouTube for sharing, or even burn XAVC footage to a blank DVD, you must be disappointed to find that you cannot do that because none of above players, editing software, online video sites or disc burners can support this XAVC video codec. The first thing to make it work is to convert your XAVC recordings to MOV, MKV, MP4, AVI, MPG, WMV, and FLV for playing, editing, uploading or burning.
