I was supplied with a DNxHD Qt to edit with in Premiere CC and wanted to match that src setting for my seq. When I went to export this Seq "match sequence" (setting) it created a dot mxf file, not a Quicktime in this codec flavor which surprised me, thoughts? I really don't want this because although one can work with this mxf file in Premiere is has far less utility outside of it.

Follow-on question. How would I figure out why this mxf will play (import) fine in Premiere CC but not an mxf that came directly out of a AvidMediaFile folder (aka product of an Avid system and yes the mxf I just referenced was the "product" of Premiere)

Thanks in advance,

I should add that the mxf came from an older Avid, an SD video file captured at 2:1

Premiere only natively supports MXF export for DNxHD. For QuickTime DNxHD export, you will need to download the codecs from Avid. They can be found here:

I believe there may be some flavors of Avid MXF files that Premiere may not support. When you went to import the Avid file, did it provide a File Import Failure dialog with a message that file is not supported?
