Question: “How can I rewrap DNxHD MXF files into MOV files on a Mac to be used in FCP X or FCP 7? I know the windows version of ffmeg seems to be able to do it, but how about a mac? Any help answering this would be much appreciated.”

Avid DNxHD, which stands for “Digital Nonlinear Extensible High Definition”, is a lossy high-definition video post-production codec engineered for multi-generation compositing with reduced storage and bandwidth requirements. It is an implementation of SMPTE VC-3 standard. DNxHD codec was developed by Avid Technology, Inc.

For users of Hyperdeck Shuttle 2, Blackmagic cinema camera, etc., mostly possibly they get compressed DNxHD MXF video files which are not native supported by many other player, or nonlinear editing programs on mac. Some other people assume that Davinci Resolve Lite is able to make DNxHD into quicktime mov, but it’s more like a transcode proress with certain quality loss and longer working time. Besides, it’s not suit for macbook users because the macbook video card doesn’t work with Davinci Resolve.

Hereby, you will need to get a powerful transform program and this is what we are going to introduce: UFUSoft Mac DNxHD MXF to ProRes Re-wrapper. This program features in easy-to-use interface, working stability and quick rewrapping work flow. You can download a free trial version here without time limit.

Transcode MXF/P2 MXF Files to Mac Compatible File like QuickTime, Apple ProRes, AIC MOV

Friday, May 3rd, 2013

MXF is used by several commercial production systems, notably the SONY MSW-2000 series of IMX video recorders. Panasonic P2 digital video cameras can output MXF files with DVC Pro encodings. Avid editing equipment supports certain variants of MXF. MXF is also part of the ensemble of specifications associated with the Digital Cinema Initiative.

mxf to mac

A SONY technical paper (no longer available on the Web in August 2007) stated that “MXF follows the AAF concept by distinguishing between ‘material’, i.e. metadata from the production stage and ‘file’ data, i.e. metadata on the final product. Within these material and file packages, all data are stored in ‘tracks’. The system metadata are kept in tracks of the timeline picture and sound tracks, whereas the user metadata are retained in shot, scene or production tracks. Not all of the metadata, however, need to be included. Most of them are optional, and producers can choose to create ‘simple’ MXF files first, and add additional information later.”

It’s not an easy thing for film producers to play or edit MXF files on Mac, because Mac system does not have native support for .MXF video shot by camcorders like Panasonic AG-HVX200P, Canon XF100, etc. In that case, UFUSoft MXF Converter for Mac software is what you need to do MXF file conversion. Please note that you must have the entire MXF file structure when loading them to UFUSoft product to do format conversion. If you just have some loose .MXF clips, your files will have image only without sound. See MXF file structure on Panasonic’s P2 card as below.

Mac MXF to Apple ProRes Converter-Convert MXF to Apple ProRes 422 Codec for Editing

Wednesday, May 1st, 2013

Using .mxf footage on Mac is a big problem for people that are not familiar with the MXF format. All right, you don’t really need to figure it out. Just learn one thing- .mxf format is not compatible with Final Cut Pro, Final Cut Express, iMovie or iDVD, and you need to convert .mxf videos to something that can be handled, e.g. Apple ProRes 422 codec, Apple ProRes 4444, etc. This is a standard-definition and high-definition lossy video compression format developed by Apple. ProRes 422 is intended for video editing with Apple’s non-linear editing software Final Cut (Pro). It retains higher quality than end-user codecs while still requiring much less expensive disk systems compared to uncompressed video. The following guide shares with you the way converting MXF videos to ProRes 422 encoded MOV files, so as to import the MXF footage to Final Cut Pro for editing.

To convert MXF video you need to transfer the whole MXF file structure to Mac HDD, because MXF systems produce split-file A/V (that is, the video and audio stored in separate files). You also need a Mac oriented MXF Converter tool that features Apple ProRes 422 encoder. Here I recommend you the UFUSoft MXF Converter for Mac.

Transcode/Convert MXF recordings to Apple ProRes 422

Step 1. Launch the Mac MXF to ProRes Converter. Press “Add”, browse to and choose .mxf video clip to import it to UFUSoft Mac MXF Converter. The software will find corresponding audio content by itself and mix it to video during conversion.

Tip: To deinterlace, denoise, mute, volume up and crop MXF video, click “Edit” menu.

Step 4. Click “Convert” to start transcoding MXF to Apple ProRes codec/converting .mxf to .mov videos.

After conversion you can click “Open” to find .mov videos for use on Mac. By converting MXF video into Apple ProRes 422 codec you can import the footage to FCP instantly- there won’t be long render time any more.
