What is MXF?
MXF is a file format for the exchange of programme material between servers, tape streamers and to digital archives. MXF bundles together video, audio, and programme data, such as text – together termed essence – along with metadata and places them into a wrapper. MXF does not force the use of certain video or audio compression types but also the internal index and partition structure can vary. The body can be based on several different types of material (essence) including MPEG, DV and uncompressed video and audio, it also uses the SMPTE KLV data coding system, which has the advantage of being a recognized standard.
The MXF container is not so widely accepted as MP4, QuickTime MOV, and M4V format. Neither does QuickTime plays MXF format nor does iTunes stream MXF files. Professional editing software like Final Cut Pro, Final Cut Express, Sony Vegas Pro, Adobe Premiere Pro and Avid support a range of MXF footage (but not all of them), while Movie Maker and iMovie won’t let your import MXF to at all. That’s where MXF Converter (for Mac) comes in.
