repairing MXF files
on Feb 13, 2017 at 4:44:28 pm

I have an MXF file recorded from a PMW F55 that won't open in any NLE or editing software. I've checked with the Treasured app from Aero Quartet, and the file contains the full content, but needs repairing.

As much as I'd like to shell out nearly 500 USD to repair the file, I'd prefer to find a.n.other way to repair the MXF file.

As the video footage is complete, I'm assuming it's to do with headers/metadata?

I've attempted to open/import into Encoder, Premiere, AVID, DaVinici, Catalyst, MPEG Streamclip and many others, all so far without success. I know the footage is there - Treasured displays it - but I can't fix the MXF to get it to import.

> I have contacted Sony and am waiting on a response.
> The original cards (SxS Pro) used to shoot the footage are no longer available.
> Content is XAVC-I 4K shot at 48fps
> Filesize is 66.18GB
> I have multiple copies of the same file on different backup drives, all with the same issue.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance.
