Anyone know of any app that can convert MXF files to something else, perhaps MKV? I downloaded the MXF project files for Sintel, I can open file but there is no image. So, how can I convert MXF to MKV in a fast speed to save up storage space or distribute files more conveniently. After reading several different post here I put together a working workflow.
Method 1. Try freeware Handbrake
Handbrake does “accept” a lot of different codecs/containers, some are undocumented but work, like wmv’s. You can convert MXF to MKV using Handbrake. The only drawback here is that your converted video is with heavy loss. And it’s not so “user-friendly” especially when you need to up- or downscale resolutions. But it’s a freebie!
Method 2. Get Brorsoft Video Converter
I’m user of Brorsoft. So far, the program worked great for me. I had necessity to open and play MXF on my PC. MXF is not supported well by Windows Media Player and even VLC. But with this Brorsoft Video Converter the situation is solved!! It helps me convert MXF to MKV with the best quality. And with the CUDA acceleration technology support, you can have a fastest video conversion. This software is amazing: friendly interface, simplicity, incredible speed and quality a/v conversion!! A great cheap quality soft! I’m really satisfied!!
