Export MXF File
on Jun 10, 2014 at 4:40:04 pm

Dear FCP Friends,

I have to deliver for a Record Company in Belgium a weird master file: An MXF Container with XDCAM HD422 50Mb/s (see attached image).
When I export an XDCAM HD422 from FCP 7, the container is a .MOV file, not a MXF.

Any ideas how I could get that? I can output from my system over following apps: FCP 7 & X, PPro, Compressor, AE, DaVinci and AVID.


Any suggestion would be great.




Thanx.


Greetings

You don't export a QT movie...you go FILE>EXPORT>XDCAM. And then you get this interface:



(oh, you need to switch audio to DUAL MONO in the Sequence Settings, audio tab before you export)

Choose the required settings and export.

It refuses to to it in 16 bit, it requires to change to 24-bit TL settings. Any idea why?

Because that's one of the requirements of OP1a MXF deliverables...I suppose. I mean, it says "you must do this." Just do it.

HOw much room is available on the drive you are exporting to?

To be honest, I've only done this once...4 years ago.

Can't be the disc space:2,5 TB Free :-)
Besides, I do not have the export options like you, if I go to export, I have the option to go to SONY content browser,
and from there I get the window you posted.
No matter to which volume I wanna export to, I get this error log :-(

This company in Belgium claims that is international Industry standard to deliver files for broadcast. How come? Never had to deliver this before!

it actually is the standard. Typically what you have sent before...tape or ProRes file...gets converted to this. This format is what is satellited to stations, and typically the format that airs.

So, why I never was asked that before? Because the stations converted themselves?

Found the problem: I have to create 8 Mono Channels, even if I have only 1 Stereo with files on it.

Hey Sascha,

I know this is a very old thread. But I'm going through the same thing. Did you copy and paste your stereo track to create 8 mono tracks?

Sasha,

I know this is an old thread, but did you get it to work? And if you DID get it to work, did you notice if the XDCAM export added black to the end of your clip? Like added 2 to 4 times as much black footage as the original clip? That is what I am dealing with and I can't find answers. I can't even find information on whether it happens with others.

I have used the original Sony XDCAM export, then Sony XDCAM Browser and now installed XDCAM Content Browser and they all do the same.

Thanks,
Patrick

Actually, I made it work back then.
No, there was no black added through the export.

Sasha,

Thanks so much for replying... At least I now know it worked for at least one person! ;)
