Does anyone have a workaround for importing .MXF files in Premiere CC without the results coming out over-exposed?
Adobe Premiere Pro CC supports MXF ( P2 Movie: Panasonic Op-Atom variant of MXF, with video in DV, DVCPRO 50, DVCPRO HD, DVCPRO or AVC-I formats; Media eXchange Format; Avid MXF Movie, XDCAM HD Movie).
However, Adobe Premiere Pro CC still can’t totally support copied MXF video files. Up to now, Adobe Premiere Pro CC and CS6 seems to work fine if you import your P2 MXF footages directly from cameras or P2 card, but if you have already copied MXF recordings to your HDD or you download them from somewhere, the importing error may jump out.
If the problem still existed, it’s possible that Premiere Pro CC is not compatible with the specs of the Panasonic/Sony/Canon MXF footage. I recommend MXF Video Converter for Mac to assist you to transcode MXF to MPEG-2 which is the most suitable format for Premiere Pro CC. Besides, this App supports for doing some editing work with MXF files. In addition, the most amazing feature about this App is that it supports 8 multi-track output formats, Multi-track MKV, Multi-track MP4, and Multi-track MOV and 5 multi-track MOV output formats with Apple Prores codecs for FCP. The Apple prores codec output is only available in Mac version, not for Windows version.
