Sony's Action Cam HDR-AS100V lets you shoot in rain or snow without using the bundled (and relatively bulky) waterproof case. Professional shooters can take advantage of new time-code support when editing XAVC S footage with Vegas Pro, making it easy to merge clips from the Action Cam with content from a variety of other cameras. While with the output footage encode by XAVC S and MP4 format, do you know the difference? 

What a pity that XAVC S files cannot be suitable for most NLEs:

According to the introduction above, if you wanna edit your AS100V XAVC files in FCPSony Vegas, etc or convert XAVC S to other common videos for other usage, some issues you will meet during the process there. Cause the XAVC-S format differs from XAVC in that it uses GOP codec of H.264/AVC for video file compression; it’s not an ideal editable format for NLE based on many users’ experience.

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.
