I'm using a newish iMac running Mountain Lion. I own a sony RX100 mk3. I recently shot some xvac-x movies to test the format. I can watch the movies on the camera but they are not recognized by the iMac when when I plug in the card. Lightroom doesn't see them either. JPEG and RAW files are recognized. Does anyone know why this happening And how to fix it?

Like AVCHD has been for some time, the movie files taken with the new XAVC-X file format are stored in the PRIVATE folder. which is not seen by by programmes like Lightroom which basically look in the DCIM folder.

iMovie and FCPX will import both AVCHD and XAVC-X formats directly from the card.

If you set the movie file format to MP4 on the camera the movie files will be put in the MP_ROOT folder and you can drag them to the desktop from there with Finder.

With Mavericks I do not have to right click the PRIVATE folder.
