Our article below mainly talks about the best method of encoding Sony F5/F55 MXF files to After Effects CC on Mac Mavericks
'Moved one of our Macs to Mavericks (as a test) and have lost the ability to import Sony F5 MXF files directly into an AE project. Current configuration OS 10.9.2 and After Effects CS6 11.0.4. Went from OS 10.8.5 where it was working perfectly. Doesn't seem to be an update from either the Sony or Adobe side to solve this problem. Does anyone have a workaround without having to first make a movie file?'
Could you find out the question above? Frankly speaking, for most Sony fans all know that MXF, as a special container, it can't be accepted by most main editing tools not only After Effects CC but also not suitable for iMovie orFCP, etc. Cause some plug-ins can't do this matter with the audio or video in a common usage, here may I introduce you a nice converting tool for you?
MXF to After Effects Video Converter for Mac---which has the strong capacity of making various video formats friendly with editing software, After Effects is certainly included. Free download for a try here?
When you load your MXF projects with 'Add video' or 'Add from folder', for 'After Effects CC', it has the specific item, 'Adobe Premiere Pro/Sony Vegas'>>'MPEG-2 (*.mov). two another selections are also available too.
I have to offer you guys here this program has another attractive point called 'Editor' Yes! It is also a primary editor itself. 'Trim' to decide your video length, 'Crop' to cut off the unwanted e
dges or give the audience some explanations with 'add subtitles', etc.
Finally, don't forget to 'Convert' to start your conversion and transfer your output videos in After Effects CC with the standard way 'File>>load file.....' For more guides, take the pages as reference.
