Q2: How to import footage from Sony F55 to Premiere CS6?
I'm going to shoot a project on HD with a Sony F55 (not in 2k or 4k). My DoP has given me some test footage, but I am unable to import the footage into Premiere Pro…
As far as I know, XAVC is a new recording format which can support 4K resolution (4096 * 2160 and 3840 * 2160) at up to 60 fps. However, XAVC is still not as popular as other kinds of video formats such as AVCHD and MXF. So when you import 4K footage to Premiere Pro from Sony F55 for further editing, you may encounter some format compatibility or video/audio synchronization problems.
