I am new to the world of MXF files and hoping someone can help me out.
I recently shot a short with the HVX200 camera on P2 cards. I downloaded to my MacBook Pro and then installed teh Panasonic diver and P2Mgt software for viewing. Everything worked fine and I also backed everything up to a portable drive. I have since purchased a 24" Imac 3.06 ghz and migrated all of my files over. I also installed the panasonic driver and software there. When I went to ingest the content into the viewer nothing happened. I went to the MacBok Pro and the same issue. I then played around with the locked symbol on the grey file icons and it seemed to help in some instance.
As a side note, the files will play in the info preview pane on the Mac and alo within FCP. Any known settings on the Mac that could cause this.
Sorry for the rambling, but any idea why all of a sudden the files won't pay in the viewer.
I didn't migrate any programs over, only documents and files. FCP was a fresh install and I did a test last night and log and transfer work. I'm just curious if the migration of mxf files from the macbook to the Imac could have caused a hiccup with panasonics P2 Mgt program(aka a viewer). It's that program I have an issue with.
Do you know anything about that program and if it's decent enough for just viewing MXF files? I was using it to just view the MXF files on the Macbook pro
