One of mine friends try to import MXF files from a Panasonic HVX200 to FCP for editing on Mac. He recorded these videos during his vacation. He want to edit the MXF files with Final Cut Pro on Mac so that share the funny video with us. But he was confused by how to import MXF to FCP on Mac.
As we know that MXF is a file format, which 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.
