As a video editor, I deal with plenty of formats and their conversion with each other. The most cases I got are to handle the conversion of Canon/Panasonic/Sony multi-track MXF. Since this kind of videos have multiple channels, many of MXF converters fail to keep them during the conversion.
Editing these outputting multi-track ProRes in Final Cut Pro also become more impossible. Here I’d like to recommend you a piece of fantastic software which is able to retain 2 channels multi-track MXF stereo to ProRes for Final Cut Pro X.
Acrok MXF to FCP Converter for Mac perfectly makes the conversion of multi-track MXF solvable! It is able to transcode Canon/Panasonic/Sony MXF files with 2, 4, 8 or more audio channels to Apple ProRes files. You don’t need to worry about the loss of the sounds! This software enables you to convert MXF to multi-track video including MKV, MP4, MOV, AVI and Apple ProRes.
By the way, you may batch convert your MXF files and merge them into one! Most of the output formats are available, such as MKV, MP4, MOV, AVI, WMA, AMA and so on for Final Cut Pro, iMovie and Avid Media Composer and many other popular players and editors.
Step 1: Import or drag Canon/Panasonic/Sony multi-track MXF files.
