In this post, we will explain how to convert Panasonic AG-HPX250 P2 MXF video for use in DaVinci Resolve with lossless raw video.

Read before we start:
Unlike Canon XF card stores video and audio files together in the same folder, the P2 stores video files in ‘VIDEO’ folder and audio files in ‘AUDIO’ folder separately. That’s why people sometimes have audio files lost when handling P2 videos. Please make sure you have the entire MXF file structure as it saved on your camcorder’s P2 card. If you only have some loose .MXF clips, your files may have image only without audio.
