No.3 Calibrated{Q} MXF Import 
Calibrated{Q} MXF Import works as a QuickTime import component on Mac OS X, this component mainly for solving the MXF files to Final Cut Pro 6/7/X importing and editing issue. Besides FCP, you can use this component to import and work MXF video with CatDV, Sound Track Pro, QuickTime player, etc. with it you can also import DNxHD .MXF files into Adobe CS 5.0/5.5/6.0. In our Top 5 MXF converter review we find the Calibrated{Q} MXF Import component only supports limited MXF files, so we rate it as No.3, its features are not rich as Acrok MXF Converter or others, and it is difficult to use. 
The Good: Useful component for QuickTime and FCP import 
The Bad: Functions are limited, not so powerful, difficult to use, only Mac version 

No. 4 MXF Import QT 
In our top 5 MXF converter review, MXF Import QT is the most expensive plugin, it mainly works as MXF file reader for QuickTime. It can help you to access or open a broad range of MXF variations to the QuickTime movie format. This feature enables you to open MXF files with Final Cut Pro, Final Cut Server and other solutions. In the top 5 MXF converter review 2016 test, we find the MXF Import QT can open MXF files recorded by Panasonic P2 (OP-Atom), Sony XDCAM (OP1a), and Avid Media Composer. Some MXF files are not supported. As this MXF Import QT is so expensive and complicated to use, we rate it as No.4 in our MXF converter review test. 
The Good: MXF reader for QuickTime 
The Bad: 399 EUR is too Expensive. Functions are limited, complicated to use, only Mac version 

No. 5 MXF4Mac Player 
Some users may only have the need to play MXF recordings on Mac and Windows, so you may want a MXF video player. MXF4Mac Player is a MXF file reader and player for Mac, just like the feature of MXF Import QT, in our top 5 MXF converter review 2016 test, this MXF file player is not so easy to get, you will need to contact the support of its vendor to get the program, the software is not so friendly. MXF4Mac Player can open limited MXF files recorded by Sony XDCAM, Panasonic P2, etc. and it only has Mac version, so you can’t play MXF on Windows. Compared to Acrok MXF converter, this software is useless, because Acrok MXF converter can also works as free MXF files player, and all other formats are supported, full screen watch is also supported in Acrok software, so in our top 5 MXF converter review 2016 test, we rate it as No.5. 
The Good: Play most MXF files on Mac 
The Bad: Importing formats are limited, compatibility problems, only Mac version 

Useful tips on how to choose one as the best: 
No matter what the features mentioned above, in order to choose the best one for yourself, the most important point is the easy operation, fastest conversion speed and the high output quality guaranteed. Considering the several points, we still suggest the Pavtube iMixMXF or MXF Converter for Mac could both be the best! Do you think so?
