I have some Panasonic P-2 MXF files where I dragged over the card contents with the correct file structure and LAST CLIP file. I need to transcode them to ProRes. A big issue is that the Panasonic HVX200 shoots 4 tracks of audio and I must keep those discrete. So my question is how to convert P2 HD MXF to ProRes with 4 track of audio?
Normally I just mix all audio tracks into one track but from a post on CreativeCOW I learn that Aunsoft MXF Converter is only giving me multitrack ProRes exported. I go to its website and download free trail version. I've tried. The finish audio/video is in sync and video quality is not bad. The conversion speed seems 15-20 faster than others I've used.
The customer-service tell me this multitrack audio MXF Converter supports Panasonic P2 series, such as: Panasonic HVX200, Panasonic AG-3DP1, AG-HPX170PJ, AG-HPX255, AG-HPX250PJ, AG-HPX370, AG-HPX500, AG-HPX600PJB, AG-HPX600PJ, AG-HPX600PJF, AJ-HPX3100GJ, AJ-HPX2000, AJ-PX5000G, AJ-HPX3700, AJ-HPX2700, etc.
Now I just free upgrated my full version to TransMXF Pro for Mac Version: 1.2.0. It works flawlessly on Mavericks. I can onvert P2 HD DVCPRO MXF to MOV or ProRes MOV with individual audio tracks. It claims that you can also transcode XAVC MXF, OP1a MXF, JVC MXF, XDCAM MXF to Pro Res MOV with 2, 4, 8 or more separate audio tracks as original. But I only have HVX200 shoot P2 video with no more that 4 audio tracks.
Click "add folder" or drag "contents" folder to the program so you can import both mxf video and audio from separate folder at once. Batch conversion is supported.
Step2: choose the output format
Click the “format” and choose the “Multi-track Video -> Multi-track Apple ProPres 422(*.mov)” files as the output format.
Step3: Set multi-task settings
Click "settings" to preserve multiple audio tracks in original MXF. The screenshot shows 4 tracks of audio. Check all to maintainning 4 audio tracks before converting MXF to Pro Res. Click "channels" to choose stereo, mono or 5.1 channels as output.
If you don't want to keep all audio tracks, you can uncheck undesired ones. And you also can mix multi-audio tracks into individual track.
Click “Start Conversion” icon, the Panasonic P2 HD MXF Converter will convert Panasonic HVX200 MXF to MOV with 4 independent audio tracks preserved. You can preview output file when conversion completed.
