Issues when importing Sony a7II XAVC files to Avid Media Composer?
"Hi, I'm trying to import video recordings from the new Sony a7 II to Avid MC6. The camera uses a flavor of MP4 that is called XAVC-S. I have tried the traditional importing method, but there's no go. I have also tried the AMA plug-in created by Sony, unfortunately, it doesn't seem to support Sony a7 II XAVC-S footage. Does that mean I have to use 3rd party software to convert formats? If so, does anyone know of a good XAVC-S Converter that is worth trying?"

Relationship between XAVC S files and Avid Media Composer

Since the XAVC S footage is a peripheral non-standard format which is not supported by Avid Media Composer, Some other NELs are not suitable too, such as FCP, Sony Vegas etc. In order to import Sony Alpha a7II XAVC S footage into FCP for smoothly editing, we can render to the famous third-party software Pavtube HD Video Converter for Mac to help us to convert XAVC to DNxHD .mov.

Tips: For those Windows users, Windows XAVC Converter is also allowed here. What I need to mention is with this windows and mac product can support the latest video codec H.265/HEVC (H.265 Decode and Encode Guide) well. Do you wanna a try?
