    Unfortunately, Sony, and now Nablet, have continued to decline to produce plugins for XAVC-S.

    Your options are to either rewrap by using a third-party tool like EditReady, or to use a third-party plugin.  DrasticTV produces one plugin, a XAVC-S specific plugin for $99.  Link below - in the "Versions" and "Download" tabs, you'll be looking for the "Single for Avid" version that specifically refers to XAVC-S.

    I use the editready re wrap workflow for my a7s XAVC-s clips, I have a smart folder on the Mac that collects all the MP4 from the card, I drag these files to the edit ready window and copy with re wrap to my media drive. The files are then ready to Ama into avid. I also use the rename feature in edit ready in this process. The re wrap process adds no overhead to the copy of the clips.

    well worth the purchase price for me.
