Looking for a simple and not confusing Canon MXF Converter for Avid
“Hey, there all, I am a college student who does freelance editing work. I’m looking for a simple and not confusing MXF Converter for Avid. Some MXF footage shot on the Canon XF105 had a bug in it that did not allow me to import it into Avid, so I need to get a Canon XF105 MXF to Avid Converter to convert these XF105-made MXFs to QuickTime files, so I could then import them successfully into Avid. It’s footage for a film about an actor that I am editing for a friend. Destined for film festivals! Actually, there are numerous MXF converters that came up on Google, I tried a few of them, but they didn’t do what I wanted. Can you or somebody PLEASE tell me a workable converter? Thanks.”
