Convert MXF File from Sony F55 to AVID DNxHD 36mbits/sec

As a professional video editor, I meet all kinds of video formats and handle different problems brought by them everyday. Last week, my workmate who’s a newcome videographer told me the trouble he met: He took his Sony F55 Camcorder to record a short video of his friend’s concert. Then he was to convert/transcode Sony F55 MXF to AVID DNxHD for the further editing. But he soon had difficulties in choosing a practical converter which is able to help him carry out this conversion. After I heard about his matter, I directly recommended him a piece of powerful software – Aunsoft TransMXF Pro.


Aunsoft TransMXF Pro is a terrific application which mainly focuses on converting MXF to many different popular formats, such as MOV, MP4, AVI, SWF and so on. One of its distinct features is that it can convert multi – track MXF videos. It exports and preserves MXF 2, 4, 8 or more audio channels as individual, and outputs and mixes selected MXF audio streams into one.


Moreover, Aunsoft TransMXF Pro supports to split and merge MXF files in conversion. Its most important function for me is that it converts MXF for many common applications such as Avid Media Composer, Final Cut Pro, iMovie and so on. This point just satisfies my unique requirements.


Transcode Sony F55 File to AVID DNxHD


Next, I will share my experience of using this software:

Step one. Download Aunsoft TransMXF Pro.


Step two. I add it to this concise interface. Before the Sony F55 MXF to AVID DNxHD, I previewed it. (TransMXF Pro supports the function of “preview”, which means you may watch MXF videos on this application.)

Step three. I select the output format of my file. It’s just easy to use. I select the AVID DNxHD 1080p (*.mov), because I want to edit it in my Avid Media Composer.

Step four. Adjust the setting. You may change the codec, size, bitrate, frame rate of the video and the codec, sample rate, bitrate, and channel of its audio. To meet my specific need, I alter the bitrate to 36000kbps and 185000kbps separately.

Step five. After I had prepared everything well, I just need to click the yellow arrow to start the MXF conversion from Sony F55 to AVID for further editing.


I also run Aunsoft TransMXF Pro for Mac on my Macbook, and it also plays well.
