MXF, short for material exchange format file, contains audio and video data as well as metadata that describe the media stored in the file, as indicated by the name, MXF file is actually a container, it is designed to standardize and facilitate the interchange of video between multiple vendors and platforms.
Unfortunately, if you are a fan of EDIUS, you might be disappointed with the dismay fact that it is rare that MXF video files can be smoothly imported to EDIUS Pro 7/8, some videos may be, but MXF definitely not. “I’ve been trying to import some Sony MXF files that have the video and audio already paired together, but I constantly receive errors no matter what I do. I’ve tried using the transfer software to copy the files directly from the hard drive into the project bin, but the Sony transfer software isn’t internally compatible with EDIUS. Any ideas?”
To solve above mentioned problems, you will need to transcode or rewrap the video files that you are going to edit with EDIUS Pro 7/8 into one single file format or codec that can be easily recognized by EDIUS Pro 7/8 as below:
Video format: 3GPP, AVCHD, AVC-Intra (4K 444/4K 422/4K-LT/200/100/50), AVC LongG, AVI, DIF stream, DVCPRO(DVCPRO HD/50/25), Flash Video, MPEG HHD MOVIE, MPEG Program Stream, MPEG Transport Stream, MPEG Video Stream, MPEG File, MXF, P2 Clip File, QuickTime Movie, RED File, SONY HVR-DR60/HVR-MRC1 Meta File, Transport Stream (MPEG2, H.264), Windows Media*1, XAVC, XAVC-S, XDCAM, XDCAM EX, XF Clip File.
Audio format: AAC Files, AIFF Files, Dobly Digital (AC-3), Dobly Digital (AC-3) (for professional), MPEG Audio Layer-3, MPEG Audio Stream, Ogg Vorbis Files, Wave Files, Windows Media Audio.
