Panasonic P2 MXF files to MOV for QuickTime Playback
QuickTime is a multimedia technology with powerful built-in media player. It could be used both in Windows and Mac platform. As now most families choose Mac as their favorite, we will just take it as the example. Have you ever met such problems that when usingQuickTime to broadcast some movies, it will show that QuickTime can't read these ones? Do you know why? Actually, QuickTime is stubborn in dealing with the videos. When running in Mac system, it can only broadcast MOV video format smoothly. Other videos will be refused to import in or be with terrible effects when broadcasted.
What about the videos stored in Panasonic P2 card. This memory card store the footages in MXF format, which is mainly for the professional video-makers. And it's still a little difficult to handle till now. Only limited video editors or media players could support this format directly, but not including QuickTime.
So， how to upload P2 MXF to QuickTime? The simplest way is to use a video conversion tool. Through Google[/b], you can find thousands of such converters immediately. Usually, these conversion tools change the video formats by Decoding and Re-encoding. That means they could change or transcode the codec or container of original videos and then get a new one. As there are much difference between the original videos and the new ones, quality loss will be unavoidable. And some converters have too much quality loss, which make the new videos be in terrible quality, especially when transcoding MXF files from P2 cards.
What I will mention is a perfect video converter, which is called Aunsoft TransMXF for Mac. In some people's eyes, such video converters must be difficult to manage. But Aunsoft TransMXF for Mac says NO. This software has powerful functions on dealing with MXF files, but is still easy-to-operate.
