Finding a converter capable of Ikegami MXF to ProRes converting
“Hello, everyone, I’m wondering if you can help. I have a media creation business and last month I purchased an Ikegami GFCam camera which presented some problems when it came to ingesting the Ikegami MXF files into my NLE system – FCP 7. I used Google to find a converter capable of Ikegami MXF to ProRes converting. But none of the converters was able to convert them to what I needed. Does anyone know which converter utility I can possibly use? I would really appreciate any help. Thank you so much!”
