    Hello there,

    I was wondering… is it possible to rewrap the mxf-files I uploaded (below) with MXFlib or an other tool of Ingex, to more 'standard' mxf-files, P2 or Quicktime files?

    This is the link to the wetransfer link:
    https://www.wetransfer.com/dl/4e4VDRA2/f4c01d8d919b0effe31b787a6ccaebdf858e1ff2dcd3904668e6542823609821242c14ea61d913c

    I know these files are ready to use in Avid, but not in FCP and other systems. I would like to rewrap them, so I can use them directly in other edit software.

    I allready tried to install MXFlib onto my computer several times, to try myself what I ask here, but my computer knowledge seems to be to limited to install… Any help with compiling for Windows XP, Windows7 or Linux would be great.

    Tanx for helping, kind regards, Trip.

    Short answer is that there isn't a simple way to rewrap these files.

    The files have a number of issues and so the easiest is to unwrap the essence data and rewrap.

    You can use MXFLib's (http://sourceforge.net/projects/mxflib/) mxfsplit utility to extract the raw DV and PCM essence data.

    Use raw2bmx from bmx (http://sourceforge.net/p/bmxlib/) to convert to MXF OP-1A, e.g.

    raw2bmx -t op1a -o output.mxf -y 00:01:39:05 --clip "BPOST ANTWERPEN RUW" -a 16:9 --dv v.dv --pcm a2.pcm --pcm a4.pcm --pcm a6.pcm --pcm a8.pcm
    

    Or use FFmpeg to convert to Quicktime, e.g.

    ffmpeg -i v.dv -f s16le -acodec pcm_s16le -ar 48000 -i a2.pcm -f s16le -acodec pcm_s16le -ar 48000 -i a4.pcm -f s16le -acodec pcm_s16le -ar 48000 -i a6.pcm -f s16le -acodec pcm_s16le -ar 48000 -i a8.pcm -vcodec copy -acodec copy -map 0:0:0:0 -map 1:0:0:1 -map 2:0:0:2 output.mov
