It doesn't look like there has been any news from Apple about any support for MXFs in AVFoundation. As previously mentioned the best workaround for now might be to select all the media you are using in the FCPX project, right click and 'transcode' it.

We are always chasing Apple whenever we can to try and get them to add support, hopefully having more and more people asking them for it might get them to do so one day.

Hi David,
Product Management have just come back from NAB, will ask them whether there is any update or movement from Apple with regards to MXF support in AVFoundation.

Regarding saving space, currently as you say the media would have to be supported by AVFoundation i.e. ProRes, but as you rightly say that will be a pain to do.

I believe Noel is suggesting keeping the MXF as is (but the archives are correspondingly bigger) and waiting for either Apple to support MXF or a way of automatically converting MXF to ProRes on import of a project.

Personally I think the latter has more of a chance of occurring so I will have a look to see what is possible in the next FCP beta.

Yours Sincerely

James.

By "archive the original MXF" do you mean copy to another ext drive?

Hi,
Unfortunately we haven't heard anything back from Apple yet.

Regarding your MXF files. If you need to revisit old projects it may be better to archive the original MXF and hope Apple add support for that format.

Reiterating James comment below:-
"It would help if end users request this directly from Apple, as the more that do, Apple is more likely to respond positively to the request".

1. Any updates on Apple support for MXF creation in AVFoundation?
2. Barring that, what would you advise for saving space when 95% of my media is MXF and I will often have to revisit old projects? I make promos and trailers from hour long shows. Should I manually chop out of those hour-long mxf files just the clips I used, convert them to ProRes and discard the rest? Unbelievably time consuming... Or should I just bite the bullet and buy more drives? Thanks.

Dear David,

Fundamentally we have to use AVFoundation from Apple, we have asked and in the last discussion with Apple the topic was raised again about support for MXF creation in AVFoundation but we unfortunately have had no definitive answer, we will keep asking. It would help if end users request this directly from Apple, as the more that do, Apple is more likely to respond positively to the request.

Yours Sincerely

James
