Import and edit Sony a99 II footage in FCP X, Premiere Pro, FCE and iMovie

How can I smoothly import my Sony a99 II 4K XAVC S (.mp4) into Premiere Pro CC for editing? Last weekend I took my wife and little daughter to go to the playground for playing, we had a good time there. We play a lot of entertainment, and I found he was very happy when we sit on Ferris wheel and Carousel, also use my new Sony a99 II 4K shoot some 4K videos for my girl. In order to share the 4K video better, I need to edit the 4K MP4 recordings in Premiere Pro CC. However, when I import them into Premiere Pro CC ready to edit, I found I can’t preview my footage, let alone to edit. Is there a good method to help me solve the problem?

The announcement of the Sony a99 II makes it the Japanese manufacturer’s new flagship DSLR camera. It features all the good stuff from the original a99 such as the translucent mirror technology (TMT), but raises the bar with new and improved autofocus capabilities, a newly designed 42MP sensor as well as internal 4K UHD video in XAVC-S format.

After testing many video editing applications with Sony a99 II XAVC S footage, the result shows that we can't import the 4K video to FCP X, Premiere Pro CC, Final Cut Express, iMovie directly due to the codec incompatibility. Something else, there's actually no way to edit a 4K project in these editing software natively. In this case, to have a smooth Sony a99 II workflow on Mac OS X, you'd better transcode Sony a99 II XAVC S to FCP X/ Premiere Pro/FCE/iMovie edit-friendly format with proper settings. It will save you both time and trouble, and all you need is to drag the result videos for prompt editing.
