Okay so BPAV files are acually MP4's wrapped in the BPAV format and when i convert to mxf that is actually re wrapping the mp4 in a mxf wrapper.

The Bpav will not play on PC? but will play on mac?
the MXF will play on PC?

is that right?

BPAV is a folder that contains all the metadata.

MP4 should NEVER be separated from the BPAV.

The entire BPAV is generally needed to re-wrap the MP4 to either MXF or MOV

Some NLEs can use the metadata and the MP4 directly. Premiere Pro can. Final Cut Pro can with the Calibrated Software plugin.

that makes sense, thank you for that. I think im gonna try again to get pp4 working, because my hard drive is filling up quickly with mxf files.
