MXF File Extension Details and Tips – Import, Edit, Convert/Encode

If you are a Panasonic P2 HD camcorder or Canon XF Camera user, you must be quite familiar with MXF video file (.mxf extension), because MXF video is the dominant HD format for camcorder recording and playback.“MXF is a ‘container’ or ‘wrapper’ format which supports a number of different streams of coded ‘essence’, encoded with any of a variety of codecs. Now anyone hoping to convert, edit, share MXF Video Files or looking for a suitable MXF Video Converter can take a look at the article below.

What is MXF?
“MXF is a ‘container’ or ‘wrapper’ format which supports a number of different streams of coded ‘essence’, encoded with any of a variety of codecs, together with a metadata wrapper which describes the material contained within the MXF file.” ,from Wikipedia.

How to View MXF Video Files on Your PC?
Even if you want to edit these files, an initial challenge comes when trying to review your footage on a desktop monitor. Copying the data from the camera (perhaps via a cable or by removing the memory card and copying the clips to your PC) is the easy part. If you don’t have a suitable player for viewing MXF clips, then you’ll be unable to appreciate exactly what you’ve recorded. You might be planning to edit high definition video (more on that later) so checking through to decide what to lose and what to keep will prove useful.

View MXF Video Files
Fortunately there are some applications for viewing MXF videos, available free online:

The popular VLC Player is one such application, allowing you to load and playback high definition videos saved as MXF format.
Another popular media player application, The KMPlayer, will also handle MXF files, delivering the crisp detail that you expect from a HD recording.
Some MXF files will playback in Windows Media Player 11. Because there are slight differences between the methods used by various cameras for encoding in this format, it isn’t a dead cert that your footage will play back, however. Using a codec pack may help – or you could just use one of the third party suggestions above.

MXF in use
MXF is mainly used in movie and TV production, edition, presentation and save.MXF was developed to carry a subset of the Advanced Authoring Format (AAF) data model, under a policy known as the Zero Divergence Directive (ZDD). This theoretically enables MXF/AAF workflows between non-linear editing (NLE) systems using AAF and cameras, servers, and other devices using MXF.

Converting MXF Video Files
I recently found that even if viewing video files in MXF format is possible, editing them is another matter entirely. As such, MXF Conversion is necessary.

Here MXF Converter (Win/Mac) is recommended as MXF Video Converter for Canon, Sony, Panasonic and JVC cameras. It’s specific on converting MXF files to various video formats in sync and encoding them with preferred video codec for NLE programs, such as Windows Movie Maker, Sony Vegas, Final Cut Pro, iMovie, Final Cut Express, Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere Pro, Apple Aperture 3, Kdenlive, Keynote, Avid Xpress Pro, Adobe Creative Suite 6, Adobe After Effects CS6, DaVinci Resolve, iPhoto. And support QuickTime MOV outputting with the best video quality interlaced or progressive.

Can I Edit MXF Files?
Different methods are available for editing an MXF file. To save time, you might prefer to head straight in and use a tool such as Windows Live Movie Maker(the most recent version of Microsoft’s desktop video editor), which will natively play back MXF videos and allow you to edit them.

Edit MXF Files
However, the options available in that particular application are limited, and certainly not as advanced as those on offer in the earlier Windows Movie Maker. This is why you might choose to convert the data before editing. Note that if you already have some video editing software installed, this might play MXF natively.

While it appears that more and more applications are providing support for MXF and other mxf container formats – hardly surprising given the obvious attractions of high definition video – finding the tools to do the job can prove tricky. Fortunately using the applications listed here you can do what is necessary to review, convert and edit MXF format videos as you see fit, hopefully with very good results.
