Go in quest of a professional MXF Converter for Mac OS X macOS Sierra, El Capitan or Yosemite? This tutorial will show you how to convert broken/corrupted MXF on OS X macOS with an all-conquering MXF converter for MacOS Sierra/Yosemite/El Capitan.

There is no doubt that you may be very pleased to update your computer to OS X macOS Sierra. Which makes almost everything you do on Mac quicker, easier and far more interesting. But, it still makes things intricate on account of some tools incompatible with macOS Sierra.

Most MXF media files are from two data-recording camera systems, Sony’s XDCAM and Panasonic’s DVCPRO P2. These camera footages are mutually incompatible due to opaque subformat options obscured behind the MXF file extension. Without conversion tools, it is impossible to distinguish these incompatible formats.

For example, we often met corrupt MXF clips issues in FCP on Mac

Most possible reasons for MXF corruption

*CF card formatted in camera or deleted accidentally
*Compact Flash card became corrupt and MXF files were recovered using disk recovery software
*A full CF card was put in camera instead of a blank one, footage was overwritten with new content before operator could dump the data off of it
*Last clip on Canon CF card is unplayable. Rest of clips are OK
*Card failed to copy data across on computer

To repair them, it's necessary to organize the data, re-creating the Header, Body and Footer structures. Complex? We've found an easy solution for it: transcoding MXF files to FCP (X) natively compatible format with a professional third-party video conversion tool.
