Supported MXF Formats
MXF Import v3 has been re-written from the ground up - it's faster and supports many more MXF files
such as OP1a MXF Files using AVC-Intra, AVC-LongG, XAVC, XAVC-L, XF-AVC,
DV100/DV50/DV25, XDCAM, IMX, Avid H264, and Avid DNxHR/DNxHD video compressions!

We even have support for AS-11 and AS-02 MXF files.

If you have a MXF File that is not supported, please contact info@calibratedsoftware.com to see if it can be added.

For further information, workflows or requirements for specific applications,
please see the Calibrated{Q} MXF Import User Guide (PDF)


Calibrated is an official Panasonic P2 Partner

Panasonic P2 MXF File Formats
AVC-Intra HD/2k/4k
AVC-Intra 444 HD/2k/4k
AVC-LongG 4:2:2/4:2:0
DV100/DV50/DV25

Panasonic Specific Notes
1.) When opening/importing Video MXF files, the corresponding Audio MXF files will be ‘auto-joined’ when in the proper P2 Folder structure
2.) P2 PullDown Removal and TimeCode conversion for regular PullDown 1080i29.97 and 480i29.97 material is not supported.
3.) P2 PullDown can only be detected and removed thru parsing the P2 XML file data. If the P2 XML for a MXF clip is not present then pulldown cannot be detected or removed.
4.) Auto-assembling of spanned MXF files is not supported. This means that if a shot is ‘spanned’ over multiple MXF files the MXF files will still only be opened or imported as individual MXF files.
4.) AVC-Intra 444 HD/2k/4k support is Mac OSX Only with September 2015 FCP X, Motion or Compressor or greater installed




Avid Media Composer MXF File Formats
DNxHR & DNxHD
AVC-Intra HD/2k/4k
XAVC HD/2k/4k
Avid H264 Proxy
DV100/DV50/DV25
XDCAM & IMX
1-1 & 1-1-10b
Meridien

Avid Specific Notes
1.) The separate Video and Audio MXF Files from Avid Media Composer will NOT be auto-joined, and will open as separate files. You can join separate Avid MXF files into one MOV file using Import Assist.
2.) Avid QuickTime Codecs required for DNxHR, DNxHD, 1-1-10b, and Meridien MXF Files.
4.) IMX ‘AES3’ Audio requires rendering when imported into a Final Cut Pro sequence and will play back choppy in the FCP 'Viewer' window, and IMX AES3 audio will not play in QT Player X on Lion.
5.) If an Avid MXF file was captured or created without a TimeCode Track then a 'fake' when this happens TimeCode is set to 00:00:00:00 (always NDF if 29.97fps or 59.94fps) at the video rate embedded in the MXF file. This was done so that (a) the MXF files would have a UUID ReelName and (b) Audio only MXF files could be identified with the proper video framerate. Please note that Audio only MXF files without any associated video framerate cannot have a TimeCode Track associated with them.
6.) IMPORTANT: Please read the 'DNxHD Options' section in this User Guide for setting up either RGB SMPTE (16-235) or RGB Full (0-255) Color Ranges for DNxHD or DNxHR MXF files




Ikegami GFCAM MXF File Formats
I-Frame MPEG2 100Mb 1080/720

Ikegami Specific Notes
1.) To work with GFCAM HD MXF files efficiently in FCP and other applications, Auto-Referencing should be enabled. Please see Chapter: Auto-Referencing for further details.
2.) Auto-assembling of spanned MXF files is not supported. This means that if a shot is ‘spanned’ over multiple MXF files the MXF files will still only be opened or imported as individual MXF files.
3.) In Final Cut Pro, to import more metadata than just TimeCode/ReelName, please see the Calibrated{Q} Import Assist User Guide (PDF) . The Default ReelName of GFCAM MXF files is the 'Bin Title'.
4.) IMX ‘AES3’ Audio requires rendering when imported into a Final Cut Pro sequence and will play back choppy in the FCP 'Viewer' window, and IMX AES3 audio will not play in QT Player X on Lion.

6.) Final Cut Pro 7 will only work with XAVC HD MXF files. 1080p50 and 1080p59.94 XAVC files only have BETA support in FCP 7. Editing 2k/4k XAVC MXF files would require using FCP X
