XDCAM Series

If the Apple iMovie software is not installed on your computer, or you are trying to transfer 60p (1080 and 720) videos, follow the alternative steps below to copy the video from the camcorder. On the other hand, you may also download and use the PlayMemories Home™ software for Mac.

I know about XDCAM Transfer (which isn't a codec anyway) and Calibrated Software but their codec does not work on my old emac or my Powerbook as they are ppc and running Tiger. I've heard FCP 6 comes with the codec but I need it for FCP 5 and Quicktime 7.6.4. The Sony XDCAM Drive Software for MAC OS X only supports Intel based Macs.XDCAM camcorder and deck users should make sure that they are running the most current versions of deck and camcorder firmware available on this web page to maintain compatibility with discs created. To be able to import Sony XDCAM, XDCAM HD, and XDCAM EX media into Final Cut Pro X, you’ll need to download and install the XAVC/XDCAM Plug-in for Apple (PDZK-LT2) provided by Sony. If the plug-in doesn’t work correctly, you may need a Sony XDCAM Video Converter for Mac to encode XDCAM MXF files to MOV format with ProRes codec for working. Wondershare MobileTrans is a small, yet useful tool that allows you to transfer contacts, text messages, call logs, calendar, photos, music, video and apps between.iPhone, Android, Nokia (Symbian) phones and BlackBerry.

Is there a way to import XAVC/XDCAM media to FCP without plugin?
Yes, there is. On some occasions, the Sony XAVC/XDCAM plugin for FCP X doesn’t work well as expected. In that case, we would consider transcoding Sony XAVC/XDCAM/XDCAM EX footage to an intermediate format (Apple ProRes) that is well accepted by Final Cut Pro X or the earlier version FCP 6 and FCP 7.
