Looking for a converter to convert Sony W810 footage for editing on Mac with sound
“Hi, there, hoping for your help. I’m a professional editor that uses Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere Pro and Avid depending on the project. I very rarely use footage from consumer level cameras but yesterday I received some AVI video clips taken with a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W810. It’s strange that Compressor/Adobe Media Encoder/FCP/Premiere Pro would not ingest/transcode the media with sound. Can anyone kindly recommend a video converter that is able to give sound? Thanks a lot.”
