Mac MXF Video Converter-Convert Canon MXF files to QuickTime video format with the detailed steps

Ok, you may want to know more about the detailed steps of converting Canon MXF files to QuickTime video format for further editing in Final Cut Pro,Final Cut Express,iMovie,Sony Vegas,Adobe Premiere .etc editing software. Now I will give you a complete guide on the issue.

Guide: Canon XF300 and XF305 Review.
Before you get started, you may need to download a trial version of Aunsoft Mac MXF Video Converter which will in the followings steps help convert MXF files to MOV format.

Step 1. Add Canon MXF files to the program
Select MXF files and drag and drop to the program or you can click "Add" button to load the original files. If you have extra video files to be converted at the same time, you can import to the program too. This Aunsoft Mac MXF Video Converter is quite an all-in-one video converter with EVO, TIVO, MTS, M2TS, Flash Video, etc supported.

Step 2. Choose QuickTime MOV output format
As you can see from the screenshot of output format list below, you are allow to choose different video or audio output for your specific purpose. In my case, I found QuickTime MOV format that I needed from "Common Video" catalog. You may have seen the default format option in my screenshot which is iPod Nano 4 MP4 file, because I had used the program earlier to convert some flash videos downloaded from YouTube to my iPod. It works great too!

Step 3. Join MXF files (optional) and convert
Before you click "Convert" button to start conversion, I'd like to present you all one big plus of the software. The ability to join/merge/combine multiple MXF and other video files to one output. It's such a great function for me when I was getting headache about all the small clips of my original MXF files. The only thing you have to do is to tick the checkbox of "Merge into one file" next to button "Settings". Or if you don't want to combine all your imported files, just leave the checkbox as default. Then click "Convert" button to start MXF to MOV conversion. You can get your output video in your destination folder instantly.

Ok, hope you have a good experience with this excellent Mac Canon MXF to QuickTime MOV Converter.
