Guide: Transcoding MXF files to Apple ProRes 422, ProRes 422 HQ or 4444

Note: To convert MXF video you need to transfer the whole MXF file structure to Mac HDD, because MXF systems produce split-file A/V (that is, the video and audio stored in separate files).

Step 1: Add mxf captured videos

Click "add video" button to import the P2 mxf or Canon mxf files to the top MXF to MOV Converter for Mac. Click “add from folder” button to add MXF folder. The software will find corresponding audio content by itself and mix it to video during conversion.


Step 2: Select output format and output path

Click on the “Format”bar and get the dropdown menu, then move your pointer to choose “Final Cut Pro> Apple PreRes 422" or "Apple ProRes 422 HQ" or "Apple ProRes 4444" as the output format.


Tips: Click "Settings", you can set bitrate and frame rate if necessary: 1920*1080 vide size; 30fps frame rate(for original 60i videos) or 25fps frame rate(for original 50i videos).

Step 3: Start the MXF to MOV conversion on Mac

Click "convert" to start converting Panasonic/Canon/Sony XDCAM MXF file Apple ProRes format on mac. After conversion, you can log and transfer MXF clips to Final Cut Pro 6/7/X for editing without problems.

Tips: You can edit the MTS video before you convert AVCHD MTS/M2TS/M2T to ProRes MOV.

By clicking “Edit” button, you can trim, crop the video, or add watermark and adjust effect to the videos which you will convert.


Trim – Choose to reserve the part you need. Just choose the chapter which you need to trim, to set “start time” or “end time”, type the portion which you want to save.

Crop – Remove black edges of your video or just get the scale of this video you want.

Effect – Adjust the effects by adjusting the parameters, such as:

1) Deinterlacing – If there are some stripes on the picture, you can check this option to make a better picture effect. (Checked by default)

2) If you want to get 3D effect, just enable this fuction and do settings:

Additional Tips:

1. If you are also a FCP X user, before you try to do the conversion, don't forget to make sure that you have installed the Apple ProRes Codec manually since the FCP X asks users to install it by themselves.

2. If you want to edit MXF files in iMovie, you just need to choose the "iMovie and Final Cut Express -> Apple InterMediate Codec (AIC) (*.mov)" in the second step.

3. If you want to batch conversion, the professional iMedia Converter for Mac is the best choice for you.
