Q: It is a Canon camcorder. The camera puts the footage into separate MXF folders. Is there a converter can pull MXF from individual folders so that I can immediately pull MXF clips out of separate folders and then batch convert MXF to Avid DNxHD and then directly import into Avid Media Composer?
A: Aunsoft TransMXF Pro for Mac is the only one that would pull the MXF out of the folders and enables you then import directly into Avid Media Composer.
From below screenshot, you can see MXF files are in several folders, DC0943, DC0944, etc. Each separate folders stores MXF video and audio under the parent folder "Clips001". You can directly load the folder "Clips001" to load the multiple MXF clips instead of adding seperate folders one by one. You can also directly drag the folders to the Canon MXF Converter.
As we know, Canon camcorders, like Caon XF300/XF305/C300 stores every MXF clips is in a separate folder, which brings inconvenience to pull MXF from different folders to conversion tool. With Aunsoft, you can load multiple files from diffrent folder at once instead of openning each folder to add MXF clips one by one.
Below is a simple tutorial to pull Canon MXF clips from separate folder and batch convert to DNxHD for Avid at once.
