[Michael Phillips] "If you are making Avid native media via Resolve, you need to create OPAtom and not OPAtom 1a. Then select the codec you want to work with , such as DNxHD 145, etc."

For those unaware, what MP is referring to is that MXF is a container which has two major forms. Avid uses the OP Atom spec which keeps audio and video separate. Sony and most others use the OP 1A spec which puts the audio and video in a single file.

As mxf is a container, it can have one of several codecs. The Sony mxfs may have XDCAM style mpg2, XAVC-I/G/S, or perhaps even ProRes.

So just saying one recorded mxf's does not tell us everything we need to know to help someone.

Y'all be cool,
