How to Convert/Import Panasonic P2 MXF footage for Adobe After Effects CS4 editing?

This guide is written for those guys who have trouble in editing Panasonic P2 mxf footage with Adobe After Effects CS4. Although Adobe announced that mxf is supported natively in AE CS 4, and mostly the software allows you to import MXF to AE CS 4 and edit them, the MXF videos may hop back and forth when you play them. Why should this happen? Let me explain it. Firstly you get to learn a bit about P2 MXF. P2 MXF files are OP-Atom (MXF Operational Pattern Atom), where each track of video and audio are stored in separate files. This complicates the housekeeping of the files since steps must be taken to ensure related tracks are kept together when files are moved or copied. The P2 uses a 6-character identifier in the filename of all related files.P2 MXF file format comes from like Panasonic AG-HPX170/HVX200/HPX300 etc.

By the way, in order to play MXF videos on PC smoothly, your processor must be very powerful. In a word, if you want to make a short film from MXF footage with Adobe After Effects CS4 and prefer fluent playback, an MXF to Adobe After Effect Converter definitely helps. Converting temporally compressed footage to a spatially compressed format is always recommended for performance reasons.Here I recommend you a powerful and useful P2 MXF Converter. The program converts MXF footage to editable formats (*.avi, *.mpg, *.f4v, *.mov, *.mp4, *.wmv, etc) and obtain HD quality (1920*1080, 1440*1080, 1280*720). Converted file can be easily imported to AE CS 4 for editing.

Step 1. Load Panasonic DVCPRO P2 MXF files to MXF Converter.
The MXF Converter as a MXF to Adobe After Effects converter can help you convert and compress MXF videos to After Effects.

Step 3: Click “Settings” button to adjust audio and video parameters.
To make good control of the output file size and quality, you can adjust all the items in the following interface, including codec, aspect ratio, bit rate, frame rate, sample rate, and audio channels. To bear least quality loss, you may view the video information in the Preview window (or select the MXF file and click “Property” button to check file info) and set A/ V parameters according to the source MXF file. Note this could lead to huge file size. A way to cut file size down is to set smaller value in Video bit rate box.
