Transcode Panasonic P2 Camera to Final Cut Pro/X without Plugin

There’s an increasing number of people who own a camcorder. As for me, I bought a Panasonic P2 camcorder and I think it complicated for me to use it. And the hardest problem for me is the problem of formats. Before I bought the camcorder, I’ve never met the MXF files. So I feel overwhelmed about it and wonder how should I convert Panasonic P2 camera to FCP X, so that I can make a further editing about it!


Have you been bothered by the conversion from P2 camera to Final Cut Pro X? Have you suffered from searching for a piece of practical software which is able to turn your MXF files into the correct format for FCP?


After inquiring to my friend who is in this area of expertise, I tried to use Aunsoft TransMXF for Mac which is said to be a practical converter which enables P2 MXF to ProRes for Final Cut Pro X without Plugin. Aunsoft TransMXF for Mac is powerful software with plenty of practical functions. It can split your long file into several short parts and meanwhile keep its high quality. Moreover, you may also merge many videos into one file. It also allows the batch conversion from MXF to almost all the popular formats, such as MOV, MP4, AVI, SWF and so on. Its most important function for me is that it can convert MXF for many common applications such as Final Cut Pro, Avid Media Composer, iMovie and so on. (Great! This is just what I want!)

Step one. I add it to this concise interface. You may also preview it before the conversion. ( TransMXF for Mac supports the function of “preview”, which means you may watch MXF videos on this software.Free Download TransMXF for Mac. )

Step two. Select the output format you need. I chose the Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov), because I want to put it into FCP for the further editing.

Step three. 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.

Last. After I had prepared everything well, I just need to click the yellow arrow to start the conversion from Panasonic P2 Camera to Final Cut Pro/X with ProRes 422 Codec.

Aunsoft does a good job in handling P2 camera file with Final Cut Pro X!
