I recorded some interesting videos for my students by using Canon XF100. I want to edit the footage in Premiere Elements then share with my students on FaceBook. However, I encounter incompatibility issues when import MXF to Premiere Elements, and it keeps saying that it doesn’t have the right codec. How can I solve the problem?
MXF is a “container” or “wrapper” format which supports a number of different streams of coded “essence”, encoded in any of a variety of video and audio compression formats, together with a metadata wrapper which describes the material contained within the MXF file. At present, many taken out of video formats from cameras are both MXF files, such as Canon XF100, XF105, XF305, Canon EOS C300, Sony PMW-200, Panasonic P2 etc., Most people want to play MXF video files in some editing software like Premiere Elements, Sony Vegas Movie Studio, PowerDirector, Corel VideoStudio, iMovie… However because MXF is a shell format instead of a compressed format, and therefore it can not ensure that each MXF file can be identified in any kind of decoder. In order to successfully edit the .mxf file, we usually transcode it to the format our editing software support.
