About Pavtube MXF Converter

Pavtube MXF Converter is a smart tool to help users preview/convert MXF footages in interlaced/progressive from Sony, Panasonic and Canon cameras. It integrates many presets suitable for different using. 

Online user manual:

What is a MXF file?

MXF is an acronym for Material Exchange Format. The MXF file format was designed by the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers.

Files that contain the .mxf file extension are often referred to as the digital equivalent of video tape. These files contain video and audio data as well as other data bitstreams. They can be used in video recorders, cameras and on computers.
The MXF file format is a container format and MXF files can be converted into other video formats when needed. However, the proper video codec must be present in order to play the video that is contained in the MXF container file.

Typical camera/camcorder models that shoot footages in MXF:

Canon XF series; Panasonic P2 camcorders, AG series; part of Sony XDCAM camcorders, etc.

As the Christmas is on the way, many of you may probably want to record the happy time together with family, memorize kid’s anniversary, etc. However, these footages in MXF format cannot be playback on PC/Mac nor tablets/smartphones directly; they also need rendering when loading to NLEs like Final Cut Pro, iMovie, Windows Movie Maker, Adobe Premiere Pro, etc. (suppose you program is updated to be support MXF format). Rendering always makes your footage less sharp in quality and it takes too much time to accomplish this: about 2~3 hours for every video. 

In consideration of this, Pavtube Studio released the latest version of MXF Converter to help user easily convert MXF to needed formats in one go. For people who are not very tech-savvy, you can simply quick locate the proper preset with best video settings on your device model/program version – it make things much easier. iPhone, iPad, Android and Windows smartphones/tablets, Xbox, PS3, HD media players, all of them has its unique presets.

In this latest version of MXF Converter, users are able to edit (crop/trim) source MXF video, adjust output video settings, change video aspect ratio, add *.srt/*.ass/*ssa subtitles to video, edit V/A separately and change interlaced video to progressive – that is to say, smooth your footage without little waves in the middle of picture. For people who want to enjoy the ultimate videos in 3D devices, it also provides 3D profiles with videos in Anaglyph 3D, Side-by-Side 3D and Top-Bottom 3D.

Pavtube studio now is applying to upgrade this MXF Converter to a professional tool to meet all kinds of user requirements. Any questions/advice can be posted to (windows) or (Mac) for help.

Besides, what is a big improvement to this program, Pavtube also released a Pro version of it: MXF MultiMixer(Windows) & iMixMXF (Mac). This pro version does not only integrates all the features of MXF Converter, but also add support to output video in MKV/MP4/MOV(ProRes only available for Mac version) with multiple audio tracks. That means you can keep the most of your audio tracks when shooting with professional camcorders.

Top MXF Converter for Mac Review: Pavtube iMixMXF vs Tipard MXF Converter for Mac

Which MXF Converter for Mac is the best MXF Converter software in 2016 or future? If you want to get a top MXF Converter for Mac to convert Panasonic P2 MXF, Canon MXF, Avid MXF and Sony XAVC MXF/XDCAM MXF preserving multiple audio channels and original timecode, etc., this Mac MXF Converter Review will be helpful. We give you top MXF Converter for Mac software reviews for you here. You can according the review to choose a best multi-tracks MXF Converter for you. 

A Brief Review on top MXF Converter for Mac: Pavtube iMixMXF vs Tipard MXF Converter for Mac

Note: If you are running on Windows, please refer to the review Best Multi-track MXF Converter Review

Main interface


Pavtube iMixMXF offers two icons on the top left for "add videos" and "add from folder"; Tipard MXF Converter for Mac integrates them into one, the same place on the top left.

We load three mxf clips in different Camera models.

Source video properties

In Pavtube iMixMXF, we can find a bubble under the three titles. Click it to check the input video/audio properties including video/audio stream, format, resolution, frame rate, bitrate and duration.

Tipard MXF Converter for Mac also has an icon to show source file properties as following. But it seems it didn't show all the info of audio stream. If you want to check/switch them, you'll need to click and select in "Audio Track".

Output Presets:

As a beginner, the output presets (or profiles) are very important to give you conversion guidance with no need to change the bitrate, framerate, size or other figures. Both Pavtube and Tipard have various presets for different devices, and NLEs. Both of them support customize outputting preset if it's needed.

Video Edition:

Let's move on to edit videos before conversion.

Click the 3D icon on top of Pavtube iMixMXF, it pops up a windows to let you trim, crop, add text/image/video watermark, remove/replace audio, add subtitles and add 3D effect. Well organized.

In Tipard MXF Converter for Mac, the Trim feature is listed separately. The rest crop, effect, edit audio and add 3D effect work the same with Pavtube iMixMXF, except the preview window is difficult to see. Besides, the Tipard MXF Converter for Mac is not able to add video watermark as the former.

Now let do a test to convert mxf to prores on both the converters.

Test: workflow of converting MXF to ProRes 422 for FCP X

We test with one MXF clip from Canon XF100 with two audio tracks.

1. We choose "Multi-track video -> Multi-track Apple Prores 422(*.mov)" in Pavtube iMixMXF and "Final Cut Pro -> Apple ProRes 422(*.mov)" in Tipard MXF Converter for Mac.

2. Choose audio tracks in Settings.

Pavtube iMixMXF offers settings for Video and Audio; all the audio streams are showed here. We check both the audio track as apparently we want to save all the sound we recorded. Also it offers a mix into one track option; we keep it unchecked.

In Tipard MXF Converter for Mac main interface, we found the options for Audio Track; but there's no way to select all of them. So we just check the first stream.

3. Start conversion.

Click the Convert icon at nearly the same time. We can see Pavtube iMixMXF (right) shows the percentage while Tipard MXF Converter for Mac (left) doesn't, the preview window changes with the process, but it's stuttering all the time.

4. Import to Final Cut Pro X.

Both the two converted completes at the same time. Now click Open output folder to locate the converted video and import them into FPCX.

We can see both the audio tracks saved separately as original in Pavtube converted video, and the timecode is kept.

While in converted video from Tipard MXF Converter for Mac, it only includes one audio track—the first one we selected. And the original timecode is removed; it's really confusing us as we thought it's basic and should be not difficult to realize.

All the steps done; thanks to Pavtube and Tipard for bringing us the great MXF converting programs despite that we have made a decision
FYI: during our research online, there's another MXF Converter for Mac from Pavtube but it seems to be the lite version of Pavtube iMixMXF. For users who only records one audio track, the former is recommended and it costs less than the latter Pro version.
