Finally support for native MFX files and AVC Long GOP files for Panasonic users…not before time !
For months now PX270 owners were left in the dark from Apple, unable to import Long GOP 50 files from the Panasonic PX270. Today PX270 owners are rejoicing but the same can’t be said for Sony’s XAVC codec.
I have fresh footage shot this afternoon on the Sony PXW-X70 camcorder and before this update was announced I imported all my footage via Sony’s Catalyst Prepare software, after installing both the FCPX 10.1.4 update and the new Pro Video Formats 2 from Apple I still can’t import my XAVC 1080 50p 50MB/s footage.
I may be cynical but with the £124 Catalyst Prepare software selling world wide is their a rush for Apple to support XAVC…Note. My XAVC-S footage from my Sony A7s imports fine.
This may be a bug in my system can any other XAVC via the PXW-X70 confirm my findings.
Interestingly as an after thought this must be the first FCPX update that has no reference to the new OS X Yosemite, i.e. making it more compatible so we all must assume that FCPX is 100% compatible or is that a bad assumption ?
