Summary: Any suggestions as to how I can encode MXF to Apple ProRes on Windows 10/8.1/8/7? You’ll get some hints in this tutorial.
The Material eXchange Format (MXF) is an open file format, targeted at the interchange of audio-visual material with associated data and metadata. It has been designed and implemented with the aim of improving file-based interoperability between servers, workstations and other content-creation devices. These improvements should result in improved workflows and in more efficient working practices than is possible with today's mixed and proprietary file formats. MXF is a “container” or “wrapper” format which supports a number of different streams of coded “essence”, encoded with any of a variety of codecs, together with a metadata wrapper which describes the material contained within the MXF file.
ProRes is the lossy video compression format developed by Apple Incorporation for use in post production. It can provide an unparalleled combination of multistream, real-time editing performance, impressive image quality and reduced storage rates. It supports any frame size including SD, HD, 2K, 4K and 5K at full resolution.
On Mac, Apple ProRes codec can be produced with Final Cut Pro or Final Cut Pro X. However, we can not use Apple ProRes codec on Windows since none of the NLE program such as Sony Vegas, Adobe Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer, etc has the capability to produce this special editing codec.
“I have Avid Media Composer 188.8.131.52 and I want to export with Apple ProRes 422 settings, but there aren't any Apple ProRes options under the export settings. Why? And is there any way to get around this? I need the ProRes codec file for a certain project.”
