      Apple adds MXF support to QuickTime applications

      December 3, 2014, 3:50 pm
      Yesterday Apple released Pro Video Formats 2.0 (an apparently renamed version of Pro Apps Codecs), which is a set of professional codecs to coincide with the FCPX 10.1.4 update with MXF integration. The release notes imply this only adds MXF support to FCPX, Motion and Compressor, however it is actually much broader than this. It adds MXF reading to any application on the system that uses the QuickTime APIs.You can test this by taking an MXF file on your system (such as from an Avid_MediaFil...

Did you copy every file you intended to? Batch Renamer allows you to check for missing frame num...
