Overview: A quick and easy solution to make your Panasonic AJ-PX380 MXF compatible with
After Effects CC with the maximum editing quality and efficiency.
The PX380, expected to release in September 2015, will record in
AVC-LongG to output on-air content direct from the shooting location and for workflows using content transferred over the Internet. The camera will capture at different AVC-LongG bit rates -
AVC-LongG50/25 keeps 10 bit, 4:2:2 quality at bit rates of approximately 50/25 Mbps, and the more economical AVC-LongG12 is optimized for wireless field workflows.
Well, something frustrating, if you want to put the clips from Panasonic AJ-PX380 to After Effects CC for editing, you will meet problems. The recordings from AJ-PX380 in MXF format can not be played or recognized by After Effects CC easily. Up to now, After Effects seems to work fine if you import your P2 MXF footages directly from cameras, but if you have already copied P2 MXF recordings to your HDD or you download them from somewhere, the importing error may jump out. If you accidentally meet with the problem, the best solution is to convert P2 MXF to MPEG-2, the format which is proved to be the most compatible one with all the Adobe products.
Well, Pavtube MXF Converter for Mac (review) is highly recommended here to help you achieve your goal. It's an easy-to-use yet professional (P2) MXF converter, player and editor. The program is capable of converting PX380 MXF as well as Canon XF, Sony XDCAM to DNxHD, MPEG-2, Apple ProRes, AIC, etc on Mac OS X for smoothly importing and editing in various non-linear editing systems, including Avid Media Composer 5.5/6.0/6.5, Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro, iMovie and more.
