Camcorders use SD card to store footages. That’s totally because the tinny stuff could store great mount of information. Generally speaking, CF cards are more popular in family camcorders and Panasonic P2 cards are now used widely by most professional video-makers. P2 cards stores footages in MXF format, which is the main video format in professional video and audio area. Maybe it’s a little strange for most camcorder users, but actually, if you can handle the files stored in, nothing will be a problem.

For most video fans, their favorite is to edit the videos and share to YouTube or other websites. And sometimes they just share the videos with families or friends instead of uploading to the web. No matter where to share, the basic tool needed is a Video Editor, which will help to get better video effects. And the common but powerful video editors included iMovie, Sony Vegas, Final Cut Pro, iDVD and so on. As now Mac is owned by most families, video editors designed by Apple have been much more acceptable.

Final Cut Pro X was issued in June 2011. And it has replaced Final Cut Express since then. Apple has announced its functions as: Revolutionary video editing, Powerful media organization and Incredible performance. This software, actually, is a little difficult to manage totally. But for most people, getting to know how to edit the videos is enough. Just like me: I can only do basic edit to my videos, but the effects are really great. After that, I usually share the videos to YouTube.

The only problem for Final Cut Pro X and P2-card-user is the video format. You know, Panasonic P2 card stores videos in MXF format. But to FCP X, Apple ProRes 422 is the best format to read. If not, FCP X will refuse reading the files or spending much time on the process of Rendering. And the simple solution is to Convert the format from MXF to Apple ProRes 422. Here comes the most powerful video conversion tool, which is UFUSoft MXF Converter for Mac.

This software can deal with MXF files perfectly. It supports basic edit for the files, such as merge, split or trim. Of course, its main function is to transcode the P2 MXF files to other video formats, such as MOV, Mp4, Apple InterMediate Codec, AVI, Apple ProRes and so on. And the following pictures will show how it works.
