Needed to convert MXF files for use in Magix Movie Edit Pro
“Hey, guys, I’m looking for a good batch converter that would let me convert MXF files for use in Magix Movie Edit Pro fluidly. I am using video from a Canon XF105. The videos are in MXF format. The original MXF files were incompatible with my current software Magix Edit Pro 14, so I have to convert them first. I googled a lot and got many converter options. I tried a few of them, but couldn’t find one that actually worked as I wanted, so I needed something else. Can anyone kindly recommend a reliable and stable mxf converter if you know? Appreciate any and all feedback/help. Thanks a lot.”
