Best 4K MXF to FCP Workflow without Sony XAVC Plug-in

Now, the term "4K" has become a big trend in display technology, with product announcements and demonstrations from the world’s leading suppliers. After CES 2014, Sony, Panasonic, JVC, etc have successively introduced new 4K camcorders for providing the highest picture resolution and frame rate video compression codec based on industry standards. As to post production, Aunsoft TransMXF for Mac provides an effective workflow to import 4K MXF to FCP.

Firstly, the big question is why not using Sony XAVC Plug-in? One limit of XAVC Plug-in is that users have to first update FCP-X to at least version 10.0.8. Another limit is XAVC Plug-in is only available for Sony 4K camcorders. Comparatively, TransMXF for Mac shows power to convert 4k XAVC MXF to ProRes 422, ProRes 4444, ProRes 422 HQ, ProRes Proxy and ProRes LT for FCP for the latest 10.1.1, as well as the previous FCP 7/6. The program has no limits to import 4K MXF recordings from Panasonic, Canon, JVC and other producers.

Secondly, the real crucial point is the advanced 4K MXF encoding technology that TransMXF Pro for Mac adopts. What are the users care about most when transcoding 4K MXF to ProRes for FCP? The converted 4K MXF quality, the video resolution, the frame rate and the conversion process, which make conversion not an easy thing. At least, a satisfying conversion is not accessing for many camcorder users. Achieving either 4K to 4K or 4K to 2K conversion, TransMXF Pro for Mac is fantastic for solving the problems users really cares about. The perfect audio and video synchronization technology, the no-rendering process and the profile settings function  

Lastly, a must-be mentioned feature is that TransMXF Pro for Mac can also supports XDCAM MXF, P2 MXF, Canon MXF, as well as 60P/60i MXF without any importing issue. Besides, the ability to export more than 50 types of video formats, making it possible to import 4K MXF to Avid, Adobe Premiere, QuickTime, etc.
