best way to export XDCAM HD with MXF wrapper
on Oct 18, 2011 at 1:35:02 pm

we need to deliver an XDCAM-HD 50 file to a European broadcaster who has only Avids running windows.

We converted our ProRes master to XDCAM in compressor, creating a quicktime file which they say they can't play (we would have thought they could at least view it via AMA...)

What's the simplest/cheapest way to rewrap the .MOV file to .MXF with no quality loss?

Thanks

Steve

Covergent-Design has free re-wrapper:

Thanks Rafael and Jeremy,

We tried the convergent design app and it seems to work for the picture. However, the original quicktime has 4 channels (full mix and M&E) and the MXF which we tested in an Avid has only 2. Don't know if it's channels 1&2 or summed 1/2 & 3/4.

Any thoughts about how to preserve the two stereo pairs?

If we try XDCAM transfer can that generate MXF files on hard drive, or is that only for writing back to XDCAM discs?

Thanks again!
Steve

Both. For hard drive, it will make a single MXF file.

For XDCam export, you need dual mono. It will tell you that when you try and export.

When you say a single mxf file, would that have 4 channels of audio?

we need to make a standalone file, not an XDCAM disc, and dual mono wont work. we have two stereo pairs, that's the problem.

Can it do that?

Thanks again.

It can handle 4ch of audio, but the XDCam spec needs it to be 4 channels of dual mono. Easy to setup in FCP7.

Sorry, that was designed to rewrap NANO-flash XDCAM files (basically like EX-1: two channels).

Fallow Jeremy's advice.
You need to change the Sequence audio settings;
- Channel Grouped
- Mono (Audio output).
