Import Panasonic AJ-PX380 MXF to Premiere Pro CC for Editing

Summary: Below is a simple guide for you to smoothly import and edit Panasonic AJ-PX380 MXF in Premiere Pro CC on Mac with the best video quality.

The PX380, expected to release in September 2015, will record in AVC-LongG to output on-air content direct from the shooting location and for workflows using content transferred over the internet. The camera will capture at different AVC-LongG bit rates - AVC-LongG50/25 keeps 10 bit, 4:2:2 quality at bit rates of approximately 50/25 Mbps, and the more economical AVC-LongG12 is optimized for wireless field workflows.

Well, something frustrating, if you want to put the clips from Panasonic AJ-PX380 to Premiere Pro CC for editing, you will meet problems. The recordings from AJ-PX380 in MXF format can not be played or recognized by Premiere Pro CC easily. Up to now, Premiere Pro seems to work fine if you import your P2 MXF footages directly from cameras, but if you have already copied P2 MXF recordings to your HDD or you download them from somewhere, the importing error may jump out. If you accidentally meet with the problem, the best solution is to convert P2 MXF to MPEG-2, the format which is proved to be the most compatible one with all the Adobe products.

Well, Pavtube MXF Converter for Mac (review) is highly recommended here to help you achieve your goal. It's an easy-to-use yet professional (P2) MXF converter, player and editor. The program is capable of converting PX380 MXF as well as Canon XFSony XDCAM to DNxHD, MPEG-2, Apple ProRes, AIC, etc on Mac OS X for smoothly importing and editing in various non-linear editing systems, including Avid Media Composer 5.5/6.0/6.5, Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro, iMovie and more.
