Native P2 Editing in Final Cut Pro with MXF4mac
by Eric Peck
i was wondering what codec is applied to the mxf for FCP to read the files if any? Also is there a good workflow for FCP to AE using MXF4MAC. Right now i use Automatic duck for FCP to AE workflow. Would this work with MXF4MAC(p2flow)

@ Trevor-

Thank you. Yeah, not sure if FCP will ever work natively with MXF material from Panasonic quite like this. Time will tell. Every computer needs an MXF4mac license on it.

Good tutorial. Seems like this is something the should happen in FCP anyway. So what happens when the project is taken to a machine that has FCP but NOT MXF4mac? Or those guys go out of business?

To Josh-

Expensive maybe, but it saves boat loads of time and all of your information is in tact. Time is money. It might seems expensive because there's not a big application to show for it, but the heavy lifting that is happening (such as extracting frame accurate time code and audio mapping) is a tough job. Spanned clips are brought in as separate clips, they are not married, and the time code remains in tact across the two clips. The upcoming full version of P2 Flow will support FCP labeling so you can identify spanned clips right in the browser. In my opinion, Calibrated and MXF4QT Import are two different utilities. Metadata is becoming more and more essential to our workflow so it's not an option to not have it. MXF4QT import allows more flexibility that just importing MXF files into FCP. The guys at MXF4mac are treating MXF media as and end to end solution. It's quite cool.

Wow. That looks really great, thanks Jeremy. The P2/FCP workflow has finally become what it always promised to be!
399 Euros or US$515 is way too expensive for this though. Calibrated MXF offers almost all of those features for US$75. Only thing Calibrated MXF's version is lacking is the Metadata mapping which they will hopefully add in an update soon. And those contextual menu features which look pretty handy. How does MXF4Mac handle spanned clips?
