Easy way for Editing Sony PMW-EX3 XDCAM MP4 clips with Mac

In this post, you can learn the easy way to import .mp4 recorded from Sony PMW-EX3 to Mac in FCP, Avid, iMovie, Premiere Pro, FCE etc.




Sony PMW-EX3 follows on from the successful launch of the new PMW-EX1 and offers all the great features of the PMW-EX1 in a new semi-shoulder design. In addition to this new design the camcorder also features an interchangeable lens system, genlock, timecode and remote control capability for real added flexibility, offering a low-cost HD studio solution. It combines a state-of-the-art, non-linear XDCAM workflow with simply the best HD quality yet seen in a semi-shoulder camcorder.

PMW-EX3 camcorder records 1920 x 1080 HD images using the "MPEG-2 Long GOP" codec, which conforms to the MPEG-2 MP@HL compression standard, and the recordings are made as data files in the "MP4" format. "MPEG-2 Long GOP" is a mature codec which enables users to record stunning-quality HD video and audio with highly efficient, reliable data compression, but it is not an editing codec, so it is a big problem when loading or importing Sony PMW-EX3 mp4 clips into your Mac system.

Question: I recently purchased the Sony PMW EX3 and am loving it. My problem is this. I want to edit my footage. I have Final Cut Studio 1 which is apparently incompatible with the EX3 mp4 clips. I'm looking to make the jump to Avid Media Composer, iMovie and Adobe Premiere, but it doesn't works. Can anybody enlighten me?
