“We are making documentary for different international broadcasters, and I need to convert some Canon C300 MXF files to H.264 MP4. I tried some apps before but they could only read the sound on channel 1, and most of my sounds were on channel 2. Some of them read my files as mono files with one audio track. But they were dual mono with two audio tracks.”
Above is a frequently asked question we would encounter when transcoding MXF files. Canon C300 is regarded as one of the best camcorders on the market, which supports Full HD 1920×1080 resolution with Canon XF codec, up to 50Mbps bit rate and 4:2:2 color sampling. The Canon C300 recodes videos in MXF format which is great to maintain high quality, but this MXF format cannot be successfully handled by most video editing software and portable tablets/smartphones, neither nor international broadcasters. To make it easier to edit for broadcasters, you can use Pavtube C300 MXF to H.264 MP4 converter for Mac to convert source Canon C300 MXF files to H.264 MP4 format, but also preserve original multiple audio tracks.
