EDIUS is a non-linear editor (NLE) that works with most modern video formats. As an ideal video editing tool, EDIUS is widely used by video professionals and hobbyists. You probably would like to use EDIUS to edit MP4 recordings to get more wonderful video files. While, some errors appeared when adding MP4 video to EDIUS 6/7/8 timeline: file import failure, no video playback, program crashed and etc.

“I am looking for suggestions on MP4 workflow with EDIUS. Recently I’ve received a Sony a7 II camera which records footage in XAVC S codec in MP4 format. I intend to edit these MP4 videos in EDIUS 6.5.3, but it seems that the EDIUS 6 doesn’t recognize XAVC S MP4 footage as import. I know that the most recent EDIUS Pro 7 has support for XAVC Intra 4K and HD as well as XAVC S Long GOP QFHD and HD, but there’s no go on EDIUS 6 system. How can I get the XAVC S MP4 video to EDIUS 6? I really appreciate any help.”

If you don’t want to upgrade the version, you’ll need to convert MP4 to a format that is suited for editing in EDIUS 6/7/8, like WMV, MOV, DNxHD and more. After multiple testing, I found Pavtube Video Converter is the best option for me. It is able to convert MP4 to EDIUS friendly format WMV easily with the best video quality. Besides MP4, this video convert program can also help to convert between any popular video and audio formats as you need. Plus, with the built-in video editing feature of the program, you can trim, crop, add watermark and more to your video files.
