"For viewing XAVC content, look no further than Vegas Pro 12 from Sony, the world’s first HD, 2K and 4K native editor. The latest version features built-in support for XAVC files, with the same ‘drag and drop, no transcode’ simplicity that Vegas Pro users have enjoyed with other popular formats." described the Sony.
Yeah, Sony Vegas Pro 12 is the best editor for the XAVC – new Sony codec records stunning HD, 2K and 4K images basically used by the Sony PMW-F5 and PMW-F55 – but the older version of Vegas (Vegas Pro 8.0, Vegas Pro 9.0, Vegas Pro 10, Vegas Pro 11) does not support it in the same way.
