The solution is compatible with many different MXF variations coming from broadcast media, ingest, transcoding and playout devices, hard disk recorders, or software that creates MXF files.
Directly access various flavors of MXF such as Sony XDCAM (OP1a), Panasonic P2 (OP-Atom) and Avid (OP-Atom) without re-wrapping or transcoding.
Please check the compatibility list for supported devices. We continuously work on further format support.
Thanks to our independent MXF core libraries and analyzer application we can continuously add more MXF variations from even more sources.

Avid file support
MXF Import QT provides access to most Avid MXF files. Standard compression types such as IMX30/40/50, DV, DVCPRO25/50, DVCPRO HD, AVC-Intra,
XDCAM HD, XDCAM EX and Uncompressed 1:1 8-bit are being interpreted with Apple QuickTime codecs to provide full compatibility, realtime effects and
video playout within Final Cut Pro. DNxHD and Avid Meridien files (1:1, 2:1, 2:1s, 3:1, 4:1m, 4:1s, 10:1, 10:1m, 14:1, 15:1s, 20:1, 28:1, 35:1) are also supported.
Other applications such as Motion, LiveType, Shake, Premiere Pro or After Effects can import and edit the native Avid MXF files as well.
Avid users benefit from MXF file preview within the media directory and when importing MXF files into Avid.
Atomic Fusion is a free workflow application for customers of MXF Import QT. The helper tool automates video and audio merging when importing separate video and audio OP-Atom files from Avid into Final Cut Pro.

Growing file support
MXF Import QT allows access to streaming enabled MXF files (indexed OP1a). This is a very important feature to access MXF live recording feeds or file transfers.
The most common requirement is edit-while-ingest which basically means access to video live recordings or file ingests.
In addition this could also include various kind of file transfers such as downloads via FTP or standard web browsers,
file copies between network attached workstations or even when copying a file from one local hard disk to another one.
Direct access during partial restores or exports complements these requirements. MXF Import QT provides workflows for
Final Cut Pro and Final Cut Studio to directly access growing MXF files without using reference movies or other tricks.
With MXF4mac Final Cut Pro became the first NLE system that was able to directly edit growing OP1a files. No background
application is running and no scanning or referencing process is required.
