Exporting MXF for Broadcast from FCP
on Oct 16, 2012 at 8:50:15 am

Hi,

I've read through the threads on this topic and have tested MXF4mac converter with good results.
Anyone out there exporting SD MXF for broadcast have any advice on the best converter to use?
I'm leaning towards MXF4mac but at 600 EUR I'd feel like an idiot if I'd overlooked a better option.
Speed and quality are important, I'm not looking for a cheap work around but advice on the best quality/value for money program to use.

Thanks, I'd really appreciate some feedback on this ,

It depends on specs, but most of the time it's XDcam.
If you get the (free!) XDcam tools from Sony, you can do this.
You can even export to your harddrive, no need for an actual XDcam drive.
And, you can import the files (rewrap to QT) to check them.

It has a bit of a learning curve. I wrote a bit of a whitepaper on it.
(contact me direct if you want to have it)

Oh, did i tell you it is free?

Hi Bouke,

thanks for the reply, I'd love to read the whitepaper.
My specs are to SD, I thought that the XDCam route could only be used for HD?
