MVI to Prores Converter-Convert MVI Videos to Prores 422 for FCP on Mac

MVI stands for Musical Video Interactive, a DVD-based means of packing audio, video and interactive visual content (for example lyrics) onto one disk. The first commercial disc released with this technology was Snakes & Arrows by Rush on May 15, 2007.The audio content is provided in multiple formats, including a high-definition version (a minimum of 24-bit at 48kHz sampling) and an MP3 version for copying to portable audio players. The video content is compatible with DVD video, and can also optionally include high-definition video. Maybe you have got some MVI videos and wanted to import MVI to FCP X/7/6 for editing on Mac, since the MVI video codec is not well supported by FCP X/7/6, the best way to edit MVI in FCP X/7/6 on Mac is to convert MVI to Apple ProRes 422 codec.

Apple ProRes 422 is a standard-definition and high-definition lossy video compression format developed by Apple Inc. for use in post production. It was introduced in 2007 with Final Cut Studio 2 and is comparable to Avid’s DNxHD codec which has the same purpose and uses similar bit rates. Both are DCT basedintra-frame-only codecs, and are therefore simpler to decode than distribution oriented formats like H.264. FCP 6/7, FCP X is Mac based editing software which supports transcoding MVI videos to Apple ProRes for further editing.

So the program you need is a great aPubsoft Video to Apple ProRes 422 Converter, which will convert MVI to Apple ProRes 422/4444 for editing with Final Cut Pro 6/7, Final Cut Pro X on Mac with best video and audio quality, perfect video and audio synchronization, and nearly all the video formats are supported, including MKV, MVI, VOB, F4V, SWF, AVI, WMV, MOV, M4V, FLV, AVCHD, MTS, M2TS, MXF, Canon camcorder recordings, Sony/Panasonic recordings, etc.

Transcode MXF to Compatible Format for Editors:FCE/FCP/Avid/iMovie with A/V Sync

MXF format, Material Exchange Format, is a “container” or “wrapper” format which supports a number of different streams of coded “essence”, encoded with any of a variety of codecs, together with a metadata wrapper which describes the material contained within the MXF file. I got these words from wikipedia. Actually, the explanation is too difficult for most video fans to understand as limited people are clear about “container” or “codec“. But in my opinion, it’s not necessary to make clear what MXF is, you can just remember that MXF is the best video format for professional users and it’s widely used by movie-makers, program editors and so on.

Being different from other video formats, MXF files usually can’t be broadcasted directly until edited by video edit software, such as iMovie, Final Cut Pro X, iDVD and so on. Such editors help to adjust colors, add effects, edit subtitles and deal with audio meanwhile to get better effects. They are really powerful, except the only common problem is none of them could handle MXF videos directly. And that’s why most movie-makers need the third-party software to convert MXF to correct formats for various video editors. Such third-party software works as the bridge between the original videos and the editors. It could transcode the video format from one to another. For example, if you are using iMovie, Apple InterMediate Codec is your first choice, and if your editor is FCP X, Apple ProRes 422 works best.


Different editors have different formats limited. Editors running on Mac usually choose MOV, MP4, AIC or ProRes as their favorite.

Most video converters could achieve the “conversion process” easily. Even some free ones also have this function. The largest difference is quality of output videos. As I have mentioned before, MXF is the most difficult format to handle, lots of converters couldn’t read it freely, especial when converting, lots of problems will come out.

“I recently purchased a Video Converter, in order to convert files from my video camera for use in Final Cut Express.? They were being converted from an .MXF file.? I tried the Final Cut Express option as well as several others all with the same result.? The video converts fine, but the audio does not.? It sounds extremely sped up and is completely indiscernible.? Am I doing something wrong?” This e-mail is from my sister. I share her words with everyone as I do believe this problem is the most common one when transcoding MXF files.

So, why this problem comes, and how to solve it?

There are two parts in a movie: audio and video. No matter which part is broken or destroyed, you can’t get a whole movie. When importing, some video converters can’t read the two parts correctly, and that’s why they refuse importing of such MXF files. Some can read parts of the files, which cause video and audio being out of sync. Maybe this picture can show you the structure.

This picture shows you the MXF folder structure clearly. When using a video converter, it seems that we only need to import a single video without any folders. But the truth is video converter will analyse the information contained meanwhile. So it’s necessary to make sure the Video folder and Audio folder are copied to the same place. If not, most video converters will fail in reading the files. Or sometimes audio and video are out of sync, just like the problem my sister met.

aPubsoft MXF Converter for Mac is technical software for MXF files. It’s mainly designed for this professional video format. Easy-to-use and powerful functions made it your best video assistant. Just like the pictures showing, choose correct formats for your editors and export, you can get a new video with correct format, and also in high quality.
