MXF files from EX3 to FCP7 - best workflow
on Jan 7, 2012 at 7:14:14 pm

Hello guys

I've got these .mxf files from sony ex3
Trying to figure out how to manage them in fcp7
I see there some expensive mxf/qt converter for mac but I'm looking for a cheap but correct solution

I read of this trick but I can't verify how professional it is and if it works:

- import the mxf files into your fcp project in the same way you do with mov files
- the software will obviously tell you they're not good and bla bla bla...
- with the Media Manager tool re-compress them in appleprores422LT into a new project

anyone tested this workflow?
does it work?

any suggestions are more then welcome!!!!
thank you in advance
