Canon MXF rewrap?
on Apr 20, 2014 at 5:13:02 pm

I'm doing a project for someone who shot with a Canon XF100.

Long story short... some of the footage had the INDEX.MIF file, and those I could see in Final Cut Pro X. Most of the footage however was invisible to FCPX because my friend didn't save the INDEX.MIF file.

I did a fairly extensive search, and I bought Pavtube MXF and I'm converting the footage to Prores.

I'd much rather keep the footage in the original codec however, since the prores files are so much bigger.

Anyone know how to do this for future reference?

Yes, I'm going to encourage my friend to keep the index.mif files in the future, but it seems there ought to be a way to simply rewrap it.

Yea Marco, I have. I love it.

It works great for my Sony HVR-Z7U, but unfortunately, it doesn't do squat for the Canon files.

Clipwrap works for mts files, not mxf.

Strangely enough, I tried Sony's XDcam Transfer, which I use to bring in mxf files from our Sony server, and the video came in fine, but the audio was messed up. It lost sync, it ended before the video and there were numerous noise hits in it.

I'm still looking for something like Clipwrap that works for mxf files.

Thanks.

I checked it out. It re-wrapped the footage. Didn't seem to translate time code, and there was some strange green and yellow noise on the clips.

Getting closer!
