Final Cut Pro X: Importing Sony XAVC, XDCAM, XDCAM HD, and XDCAM EX media

To be able to import Sony XAVC, 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.

  1. If you have not already installed the ProApps QuickTime codecs choose Software Update from the Apple () menu. If they need to be installed, they will appear as an item in the Mac App Store Updates window.

    If the ProApps QuickTime codecs do not appear as an item in the Mac App Store Updates window, they are already installed and you can skip this step.
     
  2. Visit the Sony Creative Software Download page and download the XAVC/XDCAM Plug-in for Apple (PDZK-LT2).
