    How to convert raw XAVC 4K video to iMovie MOV AIC

    Announced back in September, the FDR-AX1 is Sony’s first “consumer” 4K video camcorder that is targeted towards indie shooters. The FDR-AX1 captures 3840 x 2160 resolutions in the new XAVC-S format with MP4 Wrapper. You know, as early as 2012, a format called XAVC was created when Sony introduced its pro level PMW-F55 and PMW-F5. For the new AX1, a variation on XAVC has been developed called XAVC / S, which differs from XAVC is it uses GOP codec of H.264/AVC for video file compression. This codec makes XAVC S video not an easily editable format for NLE based on many users’ experience.

    Although the AX1 includes Sony Vegas Pro 12, which features support for 60p, 4K and 3D projects, it's no lucky for Mac users for Sony Vegas only runs on Windows. It means, you may have problem to play and edit XAVC S MP4 in iMovie, FCP, FCE, QuickTime, etc on Mac. To get rid of the issues, a professional sony FDR-AX1 XAVC to iMovie converter is helpful. Here introduces Aunsoft Video Converter for Mac, which is effective and efficient to transcode XAVC S video to AIC MOV for iMovie.

    Blu-ray is no fresh to the modern society. Even it is superior to DVD disc given that it can store a 9-hour HD video or a 23-hour standard video at most and can provide extremely HD video effect.

    Spent lots of money on your collection of Blu-ray movies? Have you thought of playing them on your iPad models: iPad 2/3/4, iPad Mini/Mini 2/Mini 3, iPad Air/Air 2 and watch them on the go anywhere possible? So amazing! Isn't it?

    With so many Blu-ray related software currently available on the market, you may have no idea which one is the best to pick up, here I will show you the top 3 Mac Blu-ray Ripping and Copying Tools for iPad Models just based on Google Ranking and user popularity. You can take it as reference to choose the most suitable one for yourself.Top 1. Pavtube ByteCopy for Mac

    Price: $42

    Pavtube ByteCopy for Mac is designed as a Blu-ray & DVD converting program which rolls off Blu-ray/DVD disc protection and convert Blu-ray/DVD to Apple/Android/Windows Devices, HD Media Player, game consoles editing programs for using. Plus, as an excellent Blu-ray Copy, it not only works with 1:1 backup solution with all the disc titles and chapter structure keeping perfectly, but also meet all your requirements for Blu-ray/DVD copy with multi-track information preserved, and you can choose your desired Audio or Subtitle Tracks when playback. 2D/3D Blu-ray and standard DVD to 3D conversion is supported.

    In trial version lossless backup runs 7 times only; for loss conversion, a watermark is put on the screen. A full version is offered at $42. The purchase includes a lifetime license and unlimited upgrades.

    Well I haven't got the chance to try every profile, but it's really the best Blu-ray backup & copy tool for iPad Models I've met ever; I mean it's ease of use, not fuss and simple to follow.

    Tip: Of cause 64G iPad is not made for saving one whole Blu-ray movie. With ByteCopy for Mac and Toast, you can shrink and rip a 50GB Blu-ray movie to 25 GB disc, while the quality lost is regardless. If you need smaller file size, you can do advanced video settings.


    Support latest Blu-ray and DVD, compatible with latest OS X 10.10 Yosemite, unique multi-track preservation feature


    Can't output ISO file, batch conversion not supportedTop 2. Leawo Blu-ray Copy for Mac

    Price: $ 44.95

    Incorporating the latest cutting-edging copy tech, this Blu-ray cloner for Mac could not only enable you to backup Blu-ray movies from various inputs to Blu-ray disc, file folder and ISO image file, but also support you to maintain the original 3D effect when copying 3D Blu-ray. Besides, it is with the ability to compress the BD50 to BD25 with perfect output quality. You can handle the perfect 1:1 disc to disc duplication without quality loss.

    However, to get an iPad accepted video, you need to turn your converted DVD disc/DVD folder/Blu-ray/Blu-ray folder or ISO image file using a ripping tool like Handbrake.


    You can easily understand the software and use it. And you can copy any DVD or Blu-ray Disc with it.


    No support for Blu-ray to Video Converting. The processing speed is kind of slow and hope that Leawo can make more improvement. Sometime you get an error message saying invalid dvd invalid blu ray or invalid iso.Top 3. MakeMKV


    MakeMKV is a nice choice for those who feel like to make lossless copy of their Blu-ray and DVD and save whatever parts you want in an MKV container.

    The decryption process takes about half the duration of the movie; once it's done, you'll have an MKV file that you can play back with VLC or other software. If you want a smaller file size, you'll need to convert the MKV to a smaller file - in the same format, or in a different one, such as an iTunes-compatible MP4 for playing on iPad– using a tool such as HandBrake again, which we'll be using to converting your MKV into an iPad compatible video.


    Does what it is supposed to do--rips DVD and Blu-ray DVDs to create high video and audio quality mkvs; easy to operate


    If you don't need mkvs from your Blu-ray DVDs then no, this isn't going to do much for you

    Above are my best Blu-ray backup software recommendations. Just choose your favorite to copy, backup and rip Blu-ray for all your iPad models easily on Mac. To sum up, Pavtube ByCopy for Mac is the best one to rip and copy Blu-ray on Mac for its comprehensive features, fastest speed and quality service.

    Note: To play the copied disc image. Install a Mac Blu-ray Player app, choose File > Open File and then select the BDMV file in the disc image. Or you can open BDMV files with the VLC Media Player.
