As we know, Canon every clip is in a separate folder, which brings inconvenience to import MXF to conversion tool. How to load and convert Canon multiple MXF files to ProRes multi track at once? This article won’t disappoint you.
Many converters or editing systems lack the power to load MXF from different folders. It is inconvenient to load MXF file or folder one by one with complex steps. So if you have many MXF clips in different folders, it’s time to find a fattest way to load multiple files at once. Aunsoft TransMXF Pro for Mac can load MXF clips from different folders at once. The workflow is really easy. You just need to take separate folders as sub-folders, which are included in a parent folder, and then you can directly load the parent folder so that the MXF file will be loaded into the Pro at once. If you don’t want all MXF files from CF card, you can also drag and drop what you need to the program.
Are you learning so not sure on the multi track? I once used Aunsoft TransMXF for Mac, a very effective Mac MXF Converter. However, there is no multiple tracks solution. One time, I need to keep 2 audio tracks when transcoding MXF to ProRes. So I updated it to the Pro. I really think there is no other conversion tool can as good as Trans MXF pro for Mac to preserve multi truck. No matter MXF footages from Panasonic P2, Canon or Sony camcorders are recorded with 2, 4, 8 or more audio tracks, the program can handle well.
Below is a simple tutorial to load and convert Canon multiple MXF files to ProRes at onece.
Step 1: Load MXF from separate folder
From below screenshot, you can see MXF files are in 2 folders. One is “mxf” and the other is “P2-dvcpro25″. Both of them are in folder “VideoBackup”.
You can select to add from folder “VideoBackup” instead of adding seperate folders one by one.
Step2: choose the output format
Click the “format” and choose the “Multi-track Video -> Multi-track Apple ProPres 422(*.mov)” files as the output format.
Step3: Set multi-task settings
Click “settings” to preserve separate audio tracks in original MXF. The screenshot shows 4 tracks of audio, if your source MXF with 2 tracks, you will get 2 channels here. You have more choices, if you don’t want to keep all audio tracks, you can uncheck undesired ones. And you also can mix multi-audio tracks into individual track.
Step4: Convert MXF files into multiple track MOV
Click “Start Conversion” icon, the TransMXF Pro for Mac will convert multiple MXF to multi track ProRes at once.
