Fall in trouble when editing Sony 4K XAVC videos in Premiere Elements 13? If so, follow the easy workaround here.

Adobe Premiere Elements with stunning features is popular video editing software for us. The point here, sometimes, you will find it's a painful experience when loading Sony 4K XAVC files into Premiere Elements 13. And there are some frequently asked question quoted as below.

Q1: Does Premiere Elements 13 Support 4K video?

Somehow my previous question disappeared. Does this program support 4K to burn to 4K Blu Rays?

Q2: Sony F55 4K XAVC footage to Premiere Elements 13 crash?

I've tried to get some 4K XAVC footage from an F55 to work in Premiere Elements 13. It imports, but when I try to do anything with it, it crashes.

As far as I know, Premiere Elements 13 has project presets for the video with the resolution of 3840 x 2160 (a 4K resolution) under NTSC only. It also offers export of the 3840 x 2160 resolution under Publish+Share/Computer/XAVC-S. However, there is no burn to Blu-ray with any 4K resolution. The compatibility between 4K videos and Adobe Premiere Elements is still an unsolved mystery in that some persons can import 4K videos into Elements, while the others can not:

On the one hand, the computer configuration and operation environment should play an important role on this aspect. On the other hand, bypassing 4K issue, XAVC, as a newly high compressed video format, is not supported by most NLEs, including Premiere Elements, FCP, iMovie, Avid Media Composer, iPhoto, etc. So to get rid of the issue, the first step we need to do is to make 4K XAVC files editable in Premiere Elements 13.

Here we suggest you give a go with Pavtube XAVC Video Converter for Mac or Windows which work smoothly in converting Sony 4K XAVC to a more "edit" friendly codec for Premiere Elements 13 like MPEG-2/AVC MOV. The most attractive thing is that it can downscale your 4K videos into common 1080p so that NLEs can afford well. If you're troubled by the similar problem, just download the right version and follow the guide below to start conversion. (Learn more: Top 3 Best XAVC/XAVC S Video Converter for Mac Review)

Before processing:

Back up/Transfer the 4K XAVC footage to Mac computer - copy the whole video folder to your computer hard drive, not just the individual .xavc files.

Step 1. Install Launch the Mac XAVC to Premiere Elements Converter. Click "Add Video" and browse to Sony XAVC clips and the software will add it to file list. Repeat the operation to load multiple XAVC videos. Or you may click the "Add Folder" button to import all the XAVC files in the file structure.

Step 2. Click on "Format" and choose "MPEG-2 (*.mpg)" or "MOV(AVC) (.mov)" from "Adobe Premiere/Sony Vegas> " as the best codec for editing Sony 4K XAVC in Premiere Elements 13. What's more, you can also transcode XAVC to FCP, iMovie, Davinci Resolve, Avid for editing or to QuickTime and various multimedia devices for playback.

Step 3. Click on "Settings" to redefine output quality. You can also set a different video resolution (1920x1080/1440x1080/1280x720/720x480), frame rate (24p/30p), bitrate, audio channels, etc. For users who would like to retain exactly the same settings (without any quality loss), set target settings the same to source video.

Step 4. Click "Convert" to start transcode 4K XAVC to MPEG-2/MOV for Premiere Elements 13 editing on Mac/PC. Once you get the converted .MOV/.MPG file, you can import videos to Premiere Elements.

Now you can edit your Sony 4K XAVC videos in Premiere Elements 13 with ease.

Does iMovie 11 properly handle 60fps video now? If you are currently having 60fps files and iMovie import issue, the post will tell you why iMovie not importing 60fps HD videos and offer the best and fasest solution.

Got one camcorder, like Sony NEX-5N, NEX7, A99, A65, Panasonic HC-V720, HDC-TM90 to record 1920*1080 Full HD MTS footage up to 60fps (50fps for PAL) and have met the incompatible erros when you tried importing 60fps videos to iMovie 8/9/11 for further editing? From googling, we find many users have the same issues:

Question1. "Whilst away snowboarding on my most recent trip, I recorded most days in 720p / 60fps (as it looks ultra smooth) and have just over 54Gb of footage; divided into five folders on my iMac (one for each day) with about 20 .mp4 files in each one. I assumed I could put together something decent on iMovie 11. Some Googling revealed that iMovie 10 does not support 60FPS. Is that right? And then how to get imovie easily working with these 60fps video? Any help would be appreciated."

Qustion 2. "I am a novice iMovie 11 user. I have footage in a 60fps camera that I imported into iMovie. When I import it, either with or without optimization, the video is very jumpy and the audio doesn't time with the footage at all. But 30fps footage imports into iMovie correctly. Is there any way to import the 60fps video correctly so that I don't have this problem, even if it means downgrading the quality?"

In fact, iMovie can't support the format 1080p@60fps because it is a nonstandard frame rate. If you want to natively ingest and edit the 60fps videos in iMovie, you have to firstly transcode 60fps footage it to a compatible frame rate with a native format by iMovie, like AIC. It means that you have to use a professional HD Video Converter for Mac to encode the 60fps video to Apple IntermediateCodec(AIC) yourself at 60p, and iMovie will let you edit a 24p or 30p project. Note that even if you shift your footage to AIC at 60p, iMovie will downgrade it to 24fps or 30fps on export (depending on what you chose), but it still doesn't look bad at all. It will just use the extra frames to make it smoother. If you shoot in 60fps and slow it down to 30fps, you are still using 30 frames to fill 30 frames. It will be much smoother.

If you attempt to transcode 60p video to AIC for using with iMovie, we would recommend Pavtube HD Video Converter for Mac - Top 60fps HD Video to iMovie Converter.

Main features: This software is best Mac HD Video Converter that can transcode any kinds of HD Video files to Apple InterMediate Codec (AIC), Apple ProRes 422 codec, DNxHD codec, MPEG, WMV, AVI, MOV, etc. for puting into iMovie, FCP, Adobe, Avid, iPhoto, DaVinci Resolve, Kdenlive, Keynote, Aperture 3, etc. NLE's for editing, and enables users to custom video and audio settings like frame rate, bit rate, resolution, sample rate and audio channel at will. These output formats are specially presetted, so the conversion quality is guaranteed, you can get lossless video conversion with this tool. (Learn more: Pavtube HD Video Converter for Mac 3.6.1 Review)

Here is step by step guide: How to get 1080p/60fps videos to iMovie for editing?

Step 1. Download, install and launch this 60fps HD Video to iMovie Converter. Import the 60fps footage to the Mac converter by clicking the "Add Video" or "Add from folder" button.

Step 2. Click "format" bar to choose the output format.

If yo want to edit 1080 60fps video in iMovie 8/9/11, please choose iMovie and Final Cut Express -> Apple InterMediate Codec(AIC) (*.mov). This is best format for iMovie editing on Mac, once converted, you won't need to render.

Step 3. You can click "Settings" to customize the output parameters, adjust the resolution, bitrate as you want. To export 60p video, simply set the video frame rate at 60p; to export 30p video, simply set the video frame rate at 30p.

Step 4. Click "Convert" button to start converting 1080p 60fps video to AIC .mov - the best suited editing format for using within Apple iMovie Version 11, 8, or 9.

Summary: If you want to edit AVCHD MTS footage on Final Cut Express and FCE does not take the AVCHD files from your camcorder, the best way is converting all MTS files to FCE editable formats - AIC MOV, ProRes MOV. Pavtube MTS to FCE Converter is the easiest and fastest tool for users who cann't import MTS to FCE. The following are the details.

Final Cut Express doesn't actually edit AVCHD MTS files, it Log and transfer MTS to Apple Intermediate Codec(AIC), which is a much more editing friendly HD supporting codec.Final Cut will only handle AVCHD files when it finds them in their original file structure (either by connecting the camcorder or using a memory card reader), not isolated .mts files. The biggest problem will be storage. For doing that type of work AIC takes a lot more space then AVCHD. figure a multiple of 3-7x the file storage size for a single video file, then multiply that by 3 or 4 to account for working space. So, for example, let's say you have videos to import, the videos total about 6 gig on your camcorder, they will take 18 – 42 gigs of hard drive space just to import the footage. Figuring 3 to 4x that for editing space, you're gonna need between 54 and 168 gig to edit the video.

Give Compressor up. I recommed convert AVCHD MTS to AIC or Apple's ProRes 422 codec with Pavtube MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac. The app save me 2 hours and even more.

Note: You can also choose other MTS to AIC MOV converter for Mac softwares. There are list of five MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac review, you can take a look, choose the most suitable for you.

How to transcode MTS to Apple Intermediate Codec(AIC) for Final Cut Express faster?

Step one. Free Download and install the great MTS to AIC Converter for Mac. Click 'Add' button, browse to the AVCHD MTS files and load them to the MTS to AIC converter. You can check the files and take thumbnails in Preview window.

Step two. Select the items to be converted, and click on 'Format' bar to specify output format. FCE compatible formats such as Apple Intermediate Codec(AIC), MP4, MOV, MPG, DV, AVI can be found in the profile list. For instance, you could follow Final Cut->Apple Intermediate Codec(AIC)(*.mov).

Step three. Click the 'Settings' button and set proper video/ audio parameters. My advice is to set the video size, bitrate and fame rate to be exactly as the footages so that you will suffer least quality degradation. For example, when the video is shot at 1920*1080, 5mbps, 30fps, you could set Size-1920*1080, Bitrate-original, Frame rate-30. If you would like to use default settings, simply skip this step.

Step four. Click the 'Browse' button next to the Export to field and select a location on your HDD for the output video file.

Step five. Click the 'Convert' button to start converting AVCHD MTS files to AIC for FCE on Mac (Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite and Mavericks 10.9 included).

After conversion you can click the 'Open' button to locate converted video files, and open up Final Cut Express, follow File > Import > Files… to browse and load the MTS files you need. Now you can edit the MTS footages with FCE for playback on QuickTime connected to your HDTV, Mac, as well as upload to Youtube.
