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.

Apple's iPhone 5C and 5S debut: We live in boring times

Marketers will do their best to convince you otherwise, but smartphones now belong to a maturing industry with little sizzle.

Apple iPhone 5C

Apple is a tough act to follow, especially when you're Apple. And especially when almost every detail of your big unveiling had already been picked apart and reported on by the press.

After announcing on Tuesday what arguably was one of the most significant product refreshes in years, Apple shares still sagged a little more than 2 percent -- the equivalent of a Wall Street shrug. Besides, the stock had been running up, playing to the saying, buy on the rumor, sell on the news. None of that means that the new products and technologies Apple showed off were necessarily wanting or somehow disappointing.

But everything is context and for the past year, Apple has battled the perception that its technology edge over Samsung was narrowing. Apple now also faces a clutch of scrappy overseas rivals such as Huawei, ZTE, and Xiaomi that make competitive, low-cost smartphones.

So as Apple's senior executives took their respective turns on stage talking about the iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S, the hyperbole was, expectedly, as thick as San Francisco's late-summer fog. At one point, CEO Tim Cook extolled the "incredible" interaction between Apple's design and engineering teams. At another point vice president of worldwide marketing Phil Schiller described 5C as "absolutely beautiful."

That over-the-top stuff is always part of what's essentially a big marketing show. But there were no big surprises out of Apple this time around. No surprises because the news leaks were spot-on. And if you were waiting for pyrotechnics, you went home disappointed because Apple had nothing about possible wearable computing devices or televisions in the offing. The only unexpected news came when Apple said that iWork, iPhoto, and iMovie for the iPhone and iPad would be free for download. However, with tech addicts always looking for the next big breakthrough, would this provide a big-enough fix?

Another question: When it comes to price, it's far from clear how the low-end iPhone 5C will sell, considering that it's not exactly a 3 bargain. The 5C will list for $549 and $649, for 16GB and 32GB versions, respectively. The price falls to $99 and $199, with a two-year contract. The unsubsidized pricing offers just a $100 discount from the iPhone 5S contract-free pricing. You'll pay $649 off contract the 16GB version of that device. Also, watch how this unfolds in China. The Tech In Asia blog noted that Apple's online store in China lists the price of the 5C for the equivalent of a hefty $733.
Many consumers -- especially the loyalists -- will still hand over their credit cards, convinced that Apple builds better devices. And these are measurably better smartphones than their predecessors. Among the myriad announcements, three caught my eye:

  • Apple unveiled a Touch ID fingerprint scanner for its more expensive iPhone, the 5S. Something like this had been widely expected since Apple spent $356 million last year to buy AuthenTec, a company that makes sensor chips for use both in personal computers and smartphones. For anyone who has ever forgotten a password or worried about security -- um, like most of us -- that's a nice selling point. The end of passwords? We can only hope. (The Motorola Atrix 4G offered a biometric fingerprint smart sensor when it debuted in 2011.
  • The announcement of the A7 processor, the first-ever 64-bit chip in a smartphone, is significant. Given something with that kind of speed and a tool kit, there should be amazing stuff coming out from developers.
  • The iPhone 5S comes with an much improved camera that includes burst mode, better glare reduction, a bigger aperture, and a larger sensor. "You can't underestimate the quality of the new camera, especially when those who understand imaging get a chance to put it through its paces," said technology analyst Tim Bajarin.

"I don't think there was anything fundamentally disappointing out of Apple despite the fact that there was lot of anticipation," said IDC's Will Stofega. "What we've seen with Apple and other vendors is they're incrementally changing and improving things."

Hardly the end of the world, but let's not kid ourselves: Elvis has left the building and the magic's gone out of the smartphone business, leaving companies and their advocates to argue about slightly faster processors, more megapixels, or slightly improved battery life. That's progress, but it's the equivalent of three yards and a cloud of dust.

When Apple came out with the original iPhone in 2007, that was the real game-changer. Before then, the phone carriers were able to dangle access to their networks to dictate what got built into handsets and how much the devices would cost. Handset makers complied or they got frozen out. The result: crappy phones. Then Steve Jobs upset the rules and the rest we know.

The journey part of the story is over. Smartphones, which are so baked into our lives, belong a maturing industry, which means that it's going to get harder and harder for any company -- Apple, Samsung, or any other would-be challenger -- to make a splash. One smartphone isn't all that different from the next. The devices do what we need them to do. It doesn't mean there aren't other delightful applications waiting to get invented. But as Stofega noted correctly, "There's only so much you can do with a device." We're talking about a communications tool, not a talisman.

So here's what's important to remember: The media often gets it wrong, as does Wall Street. The truly critical days are the weeks and months ahead when consumers vote with their wallets. And if the rumors are true, an October surprise may be in the offing from Apple. That one still hasn't leaked though the buzz is feeding a groundswell. Is Apple planning some sort of wearable device or is it the rumored television? Or maybe it will be some sort of big screen that integrates all your home devices into iOS.
Apple has time to get this right, and the instant it introduces a new platform, the excitement will be back. I can't wait because the status quo is boring me to tears.

How to Get MTS/M2TS into FCP X for Editing?

How to import your M2T files into FCP (X) if you've already copied the individual files to your Mac. Also a how to use M2T to FCP Converter to rewrap M2T files into FCP X friendly ProRes 422 mov files smoothly. The article is showing you.

What is M2T files?

M2T is High-definition video recording format used by many HD camcorders; commonly referred to as "HDV"; uses MPEG-2 compression to store HD video data on DV or MiniDV tapes; supports resolutions of 720p and 1080i.

There are many different digital video file types available out there, which can make file conversion difficult for the inexperienced. M2T files and MPG files are actually not completely dissimilar, as both are different types of MPEG2 video files. As a result, this is a much less complicated conversion than many other possible video conversions. If a quick file renaming trick doesn't work, there are many conversion programs available on the Internet. I'd like Pavtube Mac M2T to ProRes Converter

Hot Search: MTS to Smart TV | 3D MTS Movies | MTS to MP4

The native format of HDV isn't QuickTime, its .M2T. 

Anyway, while working on my latest book, I needed to batch convert .M2T files to FCP (X) compatible Formats. Apple Final Cut likes lots and lots of different files – but not .M2T.

This means that if someone captures an HDV file in another application, such as Adobe OnLocation or HDVSplit , then sends it to you, you'll need to batch transcode M2T to ProRes MOV before importing M2T to Final Cut Pro (X) for editing.

Note: You can not use QuickTime Player to preview an M2T file. The Finder displays it as a generic document icon.

Step 1. Load M2T files to Mac M2T to ProRes Converter.

Install and run Pavtube Mac M2T to ProRes Converter. Copy your M2T footages to Mac, Click "+" button to load your M2T file.

Tip: If you merge or combine various .m2t files into one file, click "Merge into one file".

Step 2: Choose Apple ProRes 422 MOV as output format for FCP.

When you'd like to specify an output format, you can choose "Format > Final Cut Pro > Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov)" as the best video format for FCP 6/7 and FCP X on Mac 10.8.

Step 3. Set best video and audio for FCP.

Click "Settings" if you want to further customize video and audio parameters such as video codec, audio codec, frame rate, bit rate, video size, audio channels etc. Do not forget to click on "OK" to confirm your settings. In Export to box you could specify destination for the converted file.

Tips: You can click "Edit" button to perform edit functions such as crop, trim, flip, effect, watermark and audio replace. To eliminate interlacing effect, simply check Deinterlacing box under Effect tab.

If you don't want "3D effect", please click on the pull down menu, choose "none".

Step 4: Start converting M2T to ProRes 422 MOV.

Click on "Convert" button to start Conversion. The converter will generate MOV file with admirable video quality. The M2T files are HD video with huge file size, so the conversion of M2T to ProRes MOV may cost lots of time. You can set auto shutdown before conversion starts.

After conversion you can click the "Open" button to locate converted files and load the ProRes MOV files to FCP (X), then you are able to edit M2T footage in FCP 6/7 or FCP X freely.

Best Multi-track MXF Converter Review: Which one is the best multitracks MXF Converter?

Summary: If you want to convert multi audio channels P2 MXF/MXF to MOV, MP4 or MKV format and want to keep multi audio channels, a professional multitracks MXF Converter is needed. Which one is the best multitracks MXF Converter? Pavtube, Bigasoft, Wondershare or Aiseesoft? The article will help you.

Material Exchange Format, commonly abbreviated to MXF, is a container file format for the exchange of program material between servers, tape streamers and to digital archives. It is an uncompressed format that can bundle together multiple video, audio and program data, which makes a lossless file format with large size. So it is widely used in high definition camcorders like Panasonic P2 Pro AG-HPX600, AG-HPX500, AG-HPX170, AG-HPX171, AG-HVX200, AG-HVX201, AG-HPX300, AG-HPX370/371, AJ-HPX3700, AJ-HPX3000, AJ-HPX3100, AJ-HPX2700, AJ-HPX2000, AJ-HPX2100, etc.

“I have an .MXF video that was recorded with two microphones that play on different channels. I had 2 mics hooked up to my camera. At the beginning of the video {at 4 seconds}, while the person in the video is standing there, a person behind the scenes is asking him a question. Then, when you see the person in the video talking {at 9 seconds} you should hear his voice. 

If convert the .MXF file to MP4 and play, you can hear the person behind the scenes ask the question, but not hear the person in the video talking. See my MP4 example. If convert the .MXF file to .MOV and play, you CAN NOT hear the question being asked and can hear the person in the video talking. See my MOV example. If I try to import either video into video editing programs like Pinnalce Studio 15, Sony Vegas, Magix, I only get the one side of the conversation. 

So, something seems the conversion process is dropping the other audio. Make more sense now?”

Suppose that you have shot an interview with movie star, sport star or CEO of corporation for television program, but when you convert these P2 MXF files to other formats for further playback or editing, you always encounter some problems like no audio in output files, only one channel of audio in output files. It is so annoying! To find the proper MXF converter for help is the key. When you search it in google, you may find lots of software, like Bigasoft, Wondershare, Aiseesoft. However, when you try them, you may always have the problem of no audio in output files and they cannot support to output all the channels of audio. 

Here Pavtube MXF MultiMixer (For Mac: iMixMXF) is the best choice for you. It will help to import MXF files and convert to various video formats compatible to playback or editing. And what’s more, it also supports to convert to MKV, MP4, MOV with multiple audio channels and mix multiple audio channels into one for output. Now let me show you how it works.

Go to download powerful multitracks MXF Converter and get it installed.

1. Import P2 MXF files to MXF Converter.

As all the P2 MXF recordings will be stored in P2 card with a special folder structure. The video and audio are stored in two different folders separately.

Do not need to manually load multiple audio channels, which avoid the problem of no audio in output files. Click “Show selected task properties” you are able to see the detailed properties of video and audio.

But some other software like Bigasoft, the audio cannot be recognized and imported automatically, and the same to Wondershare, Aiseesoft.

2. Choose Multi-track output format.

In Format dropdown list, there is a Multi-track Video catalogue. You can choose Multi-track MKVMulti-track MP4 orMulti-track MOV according to your need.

3. Adjust output settings and Mix into one channel.

Click “Settings” button to change the video and audio parameters and uncheck the audio channel for output. And every audio channel is checked by default.
