Convert/import Sony PXW-Z100 MXF to Adobe Premiere CS6/CC without Quality Losing

The PXW-Z100 uses Sony’s XAVC recording format first employed in the PMW-F55 CineAlta 4K camera. MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 compression is used for HD (1920 x 1080), QFHD (3840 x 2016) and 4K (4096 x 2160) content. Image sampling is 4:2:2 10-bit, with an intra-frame system that compresses each frame individually at a maximum bit rate of 500Mbps or 600Mbps during 4K 50fps or 60fps recording respectively and 223Mbps during HD 50fps or 60fps recording. The XAVC format is ideal for those looking to implement a high-quality, secure and worry-free workflow.

According to Sony, Premiere Pro users have to wait till PP7 comes out to use Sony XAVC files. That’s why when you try to open the Sony PXW-Z100 MXF media in Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 and Media Encoder, both of them crashed. In this situation, you will need third party software like MXF Video Converter to transcode PXW-Z100 MXF to an intermediate codec for your editing program.
