Convert Sony F5/F55 4K XAVC to MOV for QuickTime player on Mac OS X Mavericks

Description: Do you wanna enjoy your XAVC footage on QuickTime player? It is known that 4K XAVC footage is not compatible to QuickTime player. So you may need to transcode XAVC footage to MOV files for QuickTime player. How to do it? Here you will find the way.

XAVC footage, which is usually shot by Sony PMW-F5 and Sony PMW F55, features 4k (4096 x 2160 and 3840 x 2160) resolution and employs MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 video compression. Meanwhile, MXF wrapping format is used for videos. In this way, Sony PMW-F5 and Sony PMW F55 are favored by a large number of users especially the videographers. 

Sometimes we shot some video for wedding, travel or education activities so as to watch them on media player like QuickTime. However, it is hard for a Mac user to play XAVC footage with QuickTime on Mac OS X Mavericks because XAVC is not so well compatible with QuickTime player.

Now how to play XAVC videos using QuickTime? Where there is a will, there is a way. We can count on a XAVC converter for help. Pavtube HD Converter for Mac can help to transcode XAVC footage to QuickTime MOV for playback. It supports to convert various videos formats to MOV for QuickTime playback or Final Cut Pro editing, or to other video formats for popular portable devices like iPad, iPhone, Galaxy S4 and more. And you are allowed cutting off unnecessary part of the video, adding watermark including text, image and video and attaching subtitle to output videos. All the powerful edit function will contribute to a better individual output video.

Let’s go to see how it works. Download and install it before moving on.

Step 2. Select MOV for QuickTime.

    What isn’t entirely clear is whether the unlocked version of the phone is an option for Verizon and Sprint customers. Apple’s own ordering page for unlocked phones says, “You can activate and use the unlocked iPhone on the supported wireless network of your choice, such as AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, or Sprint in the United States
