P2 card camcorder is not new for us. Actually, P2 card is a solid-state memory card for recording DV, DVCPRO, DVCPRO 50, DVCPRO HD, and AVC-Intra media within MXF container files. (DVCPRO HD is a 100 Mbps extension of the DVCPRO (25) and DVCPRO 50 formats, used for capturing and editing high-quality HD video.)

Many people complain that AIC MOV transcoded from P2 MXF only with video but no audio. There is a tip about P2 MXF file you should now. Unlike Canon MXF where audio and video is stored in the same file that can be separated for archiving, P2 MXF files are OP-Atom, where each track of video and audio are stored in separate files.  If you only have some loose P2 MXF clips, the files will only have image but no audio. So you need to ensure that you have the entire MXF file structure as it saved on P2 card.

In order to apply codec to p2 cards MXF for imovie, loading the whole folder to MXF file converter is a security option. However, even you just load P2 MXF clips from "VEDIO" folder, Aunsoft TransMXF Pro for Mac can recognize audio tracks from 'AUDIO' folder automatically. More than convert MXF to AIC encoded MOV for iMovie 8/9/11, MXF video and audio converter can also encode MXF to Apple ProRes 422 MOV for FCP 6/7X, MXF to MPEG-2/WMV for Sony Vegas/Adobe Premiere, MXF to QuickTime MOV, MXF to Avid format, etc. One enhanced point, TransMXF Pro for Mac can preserve and separate multiple audio tracks from MXF materials and output Multiple Track MOV, Multiple Track MP4 and Multiple Track MKV. It's a pretty progressive.
