The GC-XA2 employs H.264/ MPEG-4 AVC compression method and stores video recordings in an MP4 wrapper. The H.264 is a codec ideal for capture and delivery, but not quite suitable for editing. In case that you have any issues editing GC-XA2 MP4 files in NLEs like Avid, Premiere Pro or Sony Vegas, we would recommend that you convert GC-XA2 60p H.264 footage to an intermediate codec that is best suited for editing in your NLE system. To performance format conversion, third party software is required. Considering the ease of use and excellent output quality, you can give HD Video Converter for Mac a shot, which is fully compatible with the most recent Windows 8/8.1 and Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite.
