Q: I have Canon spanned clips in different folders? Can I
immediately convert MXF from separate folders to AvidDNxHD MOV for importing to Avid Media Composer.
A: From below screenshot, you can see MXF files are in several folders, DC0943, DC0944, etc. Each separate folders stores MXF video and audio under the parent folder "Clips001". You can directly load the folder "Clips001" to load the multiple MXF clips instead of adding seperate folders one by one. You can also directly drag the folders to the Canon MXF Converter.
As we know, Canon camcorders, like Caon XF300/XF305/C300 stores every MXF clips is in a separate folder, which brings inconvenience to import MXF from different folders to conversion tool. If you have many MXF clips, it's the time to find a way to load multiple files at once instead of openning each folder to add MXF clips one by one. Most converters or editing systems lack the power to load MXF from different folders.
However, Aunsoft TransMXF Pro for Mac can not only capture MXF footage from the folder but also load the multiple Canon separate folders. So that you can convert Canon separate folders MXF to Avid at once. The method is easy. Taking separate folders as sub-folder, which are included in a parent folder, you can directly load the parent folder so that the MXF file will be loaded into the program at once. If you don't want all MXF files from CF card, you can also drag and drop what you need to the program.
