Best MXF Converter Review: Convert Multi audio channels MXF to MOV/MP4/MKV

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 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 the powerful Multi-track 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. You will get the video in video folder while all the audio channels in audio folder. So please make sure to keep the video and audio folder structure intact when loading.

Then drag and drop the video into the software directly. Or you can choose to click "Add video" or "Add from folder" button to browse your computer and select the MXF source to import.

Note: When you import the MXF files in video folder, the software will automatically recognize and load all the corresponding audio channels. 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 MKV, Multi-track MP4 or Multi-track MOV according to your need. Any of them will keep all the multiple audio channels separate in output video so that you can select any desired audio channel when playing or editing it.

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.

If you want to merge all the multiple audio channels or some selected audio channels into one channel for output video, just go to check "Mix into one track" on the left bottom.

4. Start multi audio channels MXF conversion.

Before conversion, you should "Borwse" the path for output files. Now click "Convert" button to start converting multi audio channels P2 MXF to MOV, MP4, MKV and keeping multi audio channels.
