Import P2 MXF Files to Avid Media Composer 8 for Editing on Mac

Avid Media Composer is a popular video editing software on Windows and Mac, many people use it as a mainly software to edit camcorder or camera recorded videos. But, different cameras record videos in different video formats, such as H.264 MOV, MTS, M2TS, MXF and etc. Today, we’ll talk about how to import P2 MXF files to Avid Media Composer 8 for editing on Mac.


As we know, P2 media is recorded in MXF format, and it offers a variety of formats to choose from (DV, DVCPRO, DVCPRO 50, DVCPRO HD, and AVC-Intra 50 and AVC-Intra 100), differing in bit depth (8 or 10 bits), scanning mode (Progressive or Interlaced) and also frame rate. No matter which P2 camcorder you are now having like AJ-HPX2100, AJ-HPX2700, AJ-HPX3000, and AJ-HPX3700, etc you probably would like to edit the recorded P2 MXF footage with an editing program, for example Avid Media Composer 8. While different problems occurred:

"I had no idea that MC8 currently doesn’t support P2 or XDCAM with AMA – Best I can tell Sony or Panasonic has not released updated drivers that support MC8 – My drivers for MC5.5 worked just fine with MC5.5 – but when I visit the update page – no drivers for MC8 are found."

"I have a problem importing .mxf files into my Avid Media Composer 8. Now with MC 8 I only have the import option, and any attempt to just import the files end up with an error message saying that I cannot import the file into a bin, and that I should check documentation."

Problems as you see, the main reason is that MXF is not a natively supported format for Avid Media Composer. It will bring more difficulty to play and edit these files in Avid MC 8 on Mac. So, the best choice is to convert P2 MXF files to Avid MC best accepted format, which ensures maximum editing quality and efficiency when working with Avid Media Composer. Considering the easy of use and lossless quality, Pavtube MXF Converter for Mac is highly recommended.


Step-by-step on how to import P2 MXF files to Avid Media Composer 8 for editing on Mac:

Step 1: Click "Add video" button to load your original P2 MXF files or directly drag the files into file list. By default, the files are selected. You can delete files which you don’t want to import to.

Step 2: Select "Avid DNxHD (*.mov)" as output video format compatible with Avid Media Composer. Click the drop-down list in the format line to get the format box. Then choose "Avid Media Composer>>Avid DNxHD (*.mov)" as output format.

Step 3: Click "Settings" button to customize the output video and audio settings by yourself. But if you are not good at it, you’d better use the default parameters, they will ensure you a good balance between file size and image quality basically. You can change the resolution, bit rate, frame rate as you need.

Step 4: You can preview to check the final result. Once you are happy with it, click the "Convert" button to start converting P2 MXF files to Avid DNxHD MOV format. It will take you a little while. When it is finished, you can edit P2 MXF files in Avid Media Composer 8 smoothly on Mac with no format limitation to worry about.
