Best Sony Alpha a6500 4K to Windows Movie Maker workflow

The Sony Alpha A6500 is an upper mid-range mirrorless camera with a 24 Megapixel APSC sensor, built-in stabilisation, touchscreen, 4k video and a powerful AF system that's perfect for action shooters. Video can be recorded at up to 4K (3840x2160p) resolution in Super 35mm format (XAVC S, AVCHD etc) using the full width of the image sensor with full pixel readout and no pixel binning. As a result, the camera collects 6K of information, approximately 2.4x the number of pixels required for 4K video. This is then oversampled to produce smoother video with greater tonal range.

Sony Alpha a6500’s XAVC S and AVCHD format is still not so popular and widely supported by the usual video editors including Windows Movie Maker. To solve the problem, it will be better to transcode Sony Alpha a6500 4K XAVC S/AVCHD to a more “edit” friendly codec for Windows Movie Maker.To get Windows Movie Maker working beautifully with Sony Alpha a6500 4K files, the easy workaround is to transcode the Sony Alpha a6500 4K XAVC S/AVCHD files to a format that Windows Movie Maker natively supports with Pavtube Video Converter.
