All You Need to Know about MXF Definition, MXF Comments,MXF Software

Monday, May 6th, 2013

MXF(Material Exchange Format) is now a popular video and audio format used by many top-end camcorders. Maybe you just know it is a HD video format, but do you know what the MXF is and with what standard the MXF is compressed? This article will give you brief answers about MXF questions.

What is MXF
“MXF is a ‘container’ or ‘wrapper’ format which supports a number of different streams of coded ‘essence’, encoded with any of a variety of codecs, together with a metadata wrapper which describes the material contained within the MXF file.” ,from Wikipedia.

MXF packs together video, audio, and programme data, such as text – together termed essence – along with metadata and places them into a wrapper. It’s body is stream based and carries the essence as well as some of the metadata. It holds a sequence of video frames, each filled with involved audio, and data essence, plus frame-based metadata. The latter typically comprises timecode and file format information for each of the video frames. This arrangement is also called an interleaved media file.

MXF in use
MXF is mainly used in movie and TV production, edition, presentation and save.MXF was developed to carry a subset of the Advanced Authoring Format (AAF) data model, under a policy known as the Zero Divergence Directive (ZDD). This theoretically enables MXF/AAF workflows between non-linear editing (NLE) systems using AAF and cameras, servers, and other devices using MXF.

Till now, there have no format can meet all requirements of broadcast production, while, MXF is designed to meet most of those requirements in the time being and in the future.

Can MXF replace all the current media formats
The answer is definitely no. It needs quite a long time for MXF to replace the current video and audio formats for there are quite a lot of video and audio files are saved as MPEG, AVI,GXF and even Quicktime formats, to convert so many files to MXF needs great efforts. But one trend is certain, there will be more and more devices supporting MXF in the future.

Typical Camcorders using MXF
Till now, there have been many MXF camcorders in the market, the typical examples are below:
Can XF series: Canon XF100, XF105, XF300, XF305 and Canon C300;
Panasonic: Panonsonic P2, HVX200, HPX170;
Sony XDCAM camcorders: Sony XDCAM, PDM700, PDM-F800. PMW100

How to Transcode MXF to Correct Format for Different Editors without Any Problem?

Friday, April 26th, 2013

MXF format, Material Exchange Format, is a “container” or “wrapper” format which supports a number of different streams of coded “essence”, encoded with any of a variety of codecs, together with a metadata wrapper which describes the material contained within the MXF file. I got these words from wikipedia. Actually, the explanation is too difficult for most video fans to understand as limited people are clear about “container” or “codec“. But in my opinion, it’s not necessary to make clear what MXF is, you can just remember that MXF is the best video format for professional users and it’s widely used by movie-makers, program editors and so on.

Being different from other video formats, MXF files usually can’t be broadcasted directly until edited by video edit software, such as iMovie, Final Cut Pro X, iDVD and so on. Such editors help to adjust colors, add effects, edit subtitles and deal with audio meanwhile to get better effects. They are really powerful, except the only common problem is none of them could handle MXF videos directly. And that’s why most movie-makers need the third-party software to convert MXF to correct formats for various video editors. Such third-party software works as the bridge between the original videos and the editors. It could transcode the video format from one to another. For example, if you are using iMovie, Apple InterMediate Codec is your first choice, and if your editor is FCP X, Apple ProRes 422 works best.

Tips:
Different editors have different formats limited. Editors running on Mac usually choose MOV, MP4, AIC or ProRes as their favorite.

Most video converters could achieve the “conversion process” easily. Even some free ones also have this function. The largest difference is quality of output videos. As I have mentioned before, MXF is the most difficult format to handle, lots of converters couldn’t read it freely, especial when converting, lots of problems will come out.

“I recently purchased a Video Converter, in order to convert files from my video camera for use in Final Cut Express.? They were being converted from an .MXF file.? I tried the Final Cut Express option as well as several others all with the same result.? The video converts fine, but the audio does not.? It sounds extremely sped up and is completely indiscernible.? Am I doing something wrong?” This e-mail is from my sister. I share her words with everyone as I do believe this problem is the most common one when transcoding MXF files.

So, why this problem comes, and how to solve it?

There are two parts in a movie: audio and video. No matter which part is broken or destroyed, you can’t get a whole movie. When importing, some video converters can’t read the two parts correctly, and that’s why they refuse importing of such MXF files. Some can read parts of the files, which cause video and audio being out of sync. Maybe this picture can show you the structure.

This picture shows you the MXF folder structure clearly. When using a video converter, it seems that we only need to import a single video without any folders. But the truth is video converter will analyse the information contained meanwhile. So it’s necessary to make sure the Video folder and Audio folder are copied to the same place. If not, most video converters will fail in reading the files. Or sometimes audio and video are out of sync, just like the problem my sister met.

UFUSoft MXF Converter for Mac is technical software for MXF files. It’s mainly designed for this professional video format. Easy-to-use and powerful functions made it your best video assistant. Just like the pictures showing, choose correct formats for your editors and export, you can get a new video with correct format, and also in high quality.
