As we know, P2 media is recorded in MXF format, and it offers a variety of formats to choose from (DV, DVCPRO, DVCPRO 50, DVCPRO HD, and AVC-Intra 50 and AVC-Intra 100), differing in bit depth (8 or 10 bits), scanning mode (Progressive or Interlaced) and also frame rate. No matter which P2 camcorder you are now have you probably would like to edit the recorded P2 MXF footage with an editing program, for example Avid Media Composer.
Avid Media Composer is a popular video editing software on windows and Mac, many people use it as a mainly software to edit camcorder or camera recorded videos. But, different cameras record videos in different video formats, such as H.264 MOV, MTS, M2TS, MXF. When importing and editing P2 MXF files in Avid Media Composer, users always encounter video and audio problems, as the Avid Media Composer doesn’t support HD videos well due to the codec.
While different problems occurred:
I have a problem importing P2 MXF files into my Avid Media Composer. Now I only have the import option, and any attempt to just import the files end up with an error message saying that I cannot import the file into a bin, and that I should check documentation.
I had no idea that MC6 currently does NOT support P2 MXF files with AMA – Best I can tell Sony or Panasonic has not released updated drivers that support MC6 – My drivers for MC5.5 worked just fine with MC5.5 – but when I visit the update page – no drivers for MC6 are found.
I have a Panasonic that records P2 MXF video format, now I would like to import these projects to Avid MC for editing., but the MXF AMA plug-in link not working. Can anyone recommend some software which can help me import P2 MXF to Avid MC smoothly?
