Default Hot Mac P2 MXF to MOV Converter- Import Panasonic P2 MXF to iMovie for editing on Mac

sponsored links
Panasonic P2HD camcorders are more and more popular among us. With P2 HD, you can capture extraordinary high definition images in DVCPRO HD and AVC-Intra with full production quality 2/3” CCDs, 1/3” 3-MOS, and 4:2:2. As the industry standard for HD production, the DVCPRO HD format offers users cost-effective, proven intra-frame compression, where each frame stands on it own for editing, and its full 4:2:2 color sampling allows the image to hold up under color correction.

It is a pity that if you’ve got a Panasonic P2HD camcorder like [b]AG-HVX200, AJ-HPX3100, AG-HPX250, AJ-HPX3700, AG-HPX170, AG-HPX500, AG-HPX370, AJ-HPX2700, AJ-HPX2100[/b], etc, the [b]P2 MXF[/b] format will not be an unfamiliar for you. You may have found MXF format is not well-suited for some non-linear video edit software including the Apple tool- iMovie.

[b]One of my clients just bought a used Panasonic P2 camera, a HVX200, and wants to edit P2 MXF footages in iMovie 11 on OS 10.6, but he found iMovie can not recognize the P2 .mxf footages. Any idea?[/b]
