Default Transcode PMW-F3 MP4 to MPEG-2 for Adobe Premiere Pro CS6/CC7

sponsored links

 
Summary: Facing problems when importing and editing Sony PMW-F3 XDCAM EX MP4 files in Adobe Premiere Pro? Here we offer two solutions for you to load Sony F3footage to Premiere Pro on Mac easily. Check the solution now.

PMW-F3 (PMW-F3K) is a hot product from Sony XDCAM EX lineup. It records 1920 x 1080 full HD images using the “MPEG-2 Long GOP” codec, which conforms to the MPEG-2 MP@HL compression standard. “MPEG-2 Long GOP” is a mature codec—also adopted by the XDCAM HD and HDV 1080i series of products—which enables users to record stunning HD video and audio with highly efficient, reliable data compression. The only problem comes when the users tried to import Sony PMW-F3 native MP4 to Premiere Pro on Mac OS X.

You may find that Premiere Pro doesn’t read raw Sony XDCAM EX PMW-F3 files properly - no audio is imported; or sometime it even says that ‘the file could be damaged or an unsupported format’. The main reason is that the XDCAM EX MP4 is not the best editing format for Adobe Premiere Pro. Well, here we’d like to offer two solutions for you to resolve the issues.

Solution 1: Transfer the PMW-F3 XDCAM EX MP4 into MXF

You could transfer the XDCAM EX MP4 footage back into usable MXF files using the Sony XDCAM Browser. It seems to work OK as far as we’ve got with the projects. Trouble is, storage for bigger projects (like the 300GB footage project we’ve just shot) can be a problem. And we have to note that Adobe PP can’t handle the MXF files well all the time, especially the older versions.

Solution 2: Convert Sony PMW-F3 MP4 into a Premiere Pro highly friendly format

You can transcode Sony PMW-F3 MP4 files to Premiere Pro natively supported formats (MPG/WMV/MOV are highly recommended). Along with some help from third-party software, it can be done effortlessly. Brorsoft Video Converter for Mac is recommended here.

Overall, the program is the best Mac Video Converter for Sony XDCAM native MP4 footage. With it, you can effortlessly transcode Sony PMW-F3/F3K MP4 to MPEG-2 or MOV, which will create an Adobe Premiere friendly file format keeping the original quality. Besides Premiere, this software can also export DNxHD for Avid, Apple ProRes for Final Cut Pro, AIC for iMovie/FCE and more NLE systems for native editing under Mac OS X including Mountain Lion and Mavericks. Brorsoft Video Converter is the alternative choice for encoding PMW-F3 videos to Premiere Pro on Windows PC. Now download it and follow the tutorial below to get the work done.

Transcode Sony PMW-F3 MP4 files to Premiere Pro CC7/CS6/CS5/CS4 for editing on Mac

Step 1: Load Sony PMW-F3 video files

Install and launch Brorsoft Video Converter on your Mac and load source MP4 clips to it. You can import MP4 clips to the program through “Add Video” button.

In this article, we will introduce the 2014 top free desktop or online video converter which enable converting MP4 to MOV format freely.

Top 1. HandBrake

HandBrake is an easy to use free video converter that's most useful for converting pretty much any video file you might have into one that'll work with your mobile device.

Unlike Handbrake above, Pavtube Free Video DVD Converter Ultimate is a desktop converting software. With this app, you can convert any video (including TiVo) and DVD to MOV, WebM, MKV, MPG, AVI, WMV, MPG without problem. Same editing as retail version.

Now we are in a world with a variety of digital videos. Sony, Panasonic, Canon, Nikon have released many HD camcorders for both professional and amateurish videographors to record every memorable moment in their life. So HD videos have make up a necessary part of your digital world. At the same time, Tivo show and DVDs also play an important role. But they are not a friendly companion to edit or smoothly playback. You may want to convert DVDs to MOV/FLV/MKV for playback, burning or sharing with friends, convert HD videos to MOV/MKV/MPG/AVI/WebM/WMV/MPG for further editing, burning, playing.

Top 3. Quick AVI Creator

Quick AVI Creator is a video converter that supports a few major conversion formats.

Load a file, select where to save it, and then choose an output format. There aren't many options, but you can select particular subtitle or audio tracks to use when converting.

While Quick AVI Creator doesn't export videos to a massive list of file types, it does support the three major ones.

Input Formats: ASF, AVI, DIVX, DVD, FLV, F4V, MKV, MP4, MPEG, and WMV
Output Formats: AVI, MKV, and MP4



Top 4. WinFF

WinFF is a video converter program that supports popular formats and features like editing and cropping.

First select an output device or file format and then click Add to import a video file. Crop or rotate the video, among other options, and then click Convert to finish.

Input Format: AVI, MKV, MOV, MPEG, OGG, VOB, and WEBM
Output Format/Devices: AVI, BlackBerry, Creative Zen, DV, DVD, Google/Android, Apple iPod, LG, MPEG4, Nokia, Palm, PlayStation 3/PSP, QT, VCD, Walkman, and WMV

A major problem WinFF seems to have is that it crashes in Windows 8 if you try to change the output folder for converted files.



Top 5. YouConvertIt

YouConvertIt is an online video converter service that will convert many popular video formats. You just upload the video file and wait for an email link to the converted file.

Input Formats: 3GP, ASF, AVI, FLV, MOV, MP4, MPEG, MPG, RM, SWF, and WMV
Output Formats: 3GP, ASF, AVI, FLV, MOV, MP4, MPEG, MPG, RM, SWF, and WMV

The biggest disadvantage with YouConvertIt is the wait time to upload the video and receive your email. Their 200MB file size limit is certainly disappointing as well considering the fact that many video files can exceed this size.



Top 5+. Format Factory

Format Factory is a multifunctional media converter.

First select the file type your video should be converted to, then load the file. Advanced options are available like editing the audio channel, aspect ratio, and bitrate.

Input Formats: 3GP, AVI, FLV, MP4, MPG, SWF, and WMV
Output Formats: 3GP, AVI, FLV, MP4, MPG, SWF, and WMV

During setup, Format Factory tries to install a program you may or may not want. Easily stop this by choosing Decline.



After testing the 6 converted below, I recommend a top desktop media converting software - Pavtube Video Converter for its good capability of supporting nearly all the main stream formats (e.g. MKV, AVI, WMV, Tivo, MP4, VOB, MPG, MXF, MPG, MOV, M4V, FLV, F4V, MTS, M2TS, M2T, TS, WMA, ASF, DVR-MS, WAV, DTS in WAV, RM, RMVB, RA, QT, 3GP, 3G2, DV, M4B, DAT, M2V, MOD, TOD, TP, EVO, MVI), easy-to-use interface and many considerate small features like video/audio editing before conversion. Moreover, the Mac version supports some special codecs for NLEs like FCP, iMovie, FCE, Avid, Adobe, etc. which is very important to me
