Q1: I'm trying to convert 2 .MXF files and they are exported from my Avid, but there is no file structure. I've tried downloading lots of codecs, 3rd party Quicktime programs but nothing seems to read them. Any help you could give me would be brilliant.
Q2: I have AVID MXF files that I would like to import into FCP. Any ideas other than spending $400. for the MXF Import program. I tried the Sony EX Transfer software but that wouldn't do it. I don't have access to an AVID to export quicktimes.
Q3: The mxf files generated by Avid were not able to be read by Final Cut Pro. I just spend an hour or so trying to import some Avid MXF files after installing the new Calibrated MXF demo, but I couldn't get anywhere. I notice that they say they can only open Avid v3.1 mxf files. I guess that's my problem, some of my mxf files are older. Any plans to add broader Avid support?
