I just installed this program (v2.3) and cannot figure it out. I watched Jeremy's video tutorial and I don't see any contextual menus available for the folders that content P2 content. All I seem to be able to do is pull in the video and audio folders but then the audio is not locked to the video.

What I really want to do is to bring in the P2 materials into Compressor and transcode it, which I thought this software could do. And of course I want the audio and video to be in the exported movie.

Yes, with Snow Leopard all contextual menus went away on the OS level.

Did you buy P2Flow as well, or just MXF Import?

If P2 flow, you can send the video/audio form there to either Compressor or FCP.

If not, then use Atomic Fusion (which is free from MXF4mac) to send the video/audio to FCP, and then you can export ref movies from there to Compressor.

I actually won a copy of mxf import at NAB in 09, never registered it until now, so no P2Flow. I will check out Atomic Fusion, just it is either spend money or take a couple extra steps. Thanks for the help.

Atomic Fusion is free. No reason to spend money.

If you shoot p2 a lot, p2 Flow is well worth the dough.

If you need help, don't hesitate to write back. Mxf4mac has been the best thing to happen to FCP for p2 in a long while in my opinion.

My goal is to get the P2 clips into Compressor to make TC burn Proxy files for the Director to view, I would like to do this without going to FCP first. Can Atomic Fusion help with that? The Director/Producer is unwilling to spend the money on Proxy Mill which is perfect for the job. This is a collaborative effect so I have no desire to spend my own money since this is a project that I might get a paycheck from, at some point in time.

Have to use Atomic Fusion first, then batch export ref files to compressor or Finder and use droplet.

Checkout ProxyMill. It costs, but if you need to make proxys all the time it might simplify your workflow.
