I am having the problem to import IMX50 MXF to Premiere Pro CS6.0.1. Audio plays, but no waveforms with any of the clips. Automatic peak file generation is ticked in preferences and all other files are generating AWF's no problem at all. It's just the MXF files that seem to be the problem. Thanks for the guys who provide ideas for me in the forum. I try this and that and here I would like to share my experience.


You know, MXF footage is not the native format for Adobe Premiere, The most common problem are no audio or audio out of sync. That's why I download the trial version of Aunsoft TransMXF Pro for Mac, which helps me import XDCam IMX50 MXF files into PPro CS6.0.1 with audio. I can view the clips with audio entirely in the preview. Lately, I learn that the program can automatically load audio counterparts when I load MXF file. After IMX50 MXF to PPro conversion, the output format with audio too. I accidentally click "edit" icon in the main interface and I find I can preview original file and output video simultaneously. Here initial editing, such as cropping, trimming and deinterlaing, are available. Adopting advanced audio/video synchronization technology, The Pro can guarantee perfect audio and video sync after editing and conversion.


Want to export separated audio tracks from MXF files? To be specific, if you want to preserve 2, 4, 8 or more audio channels, what can you do? Premiere always mixes down all audio channels to the channels 1 & 2, which means that only channels 1 & 2 have audio, the other are blank. As the only completely multichannel project solution, TransMXF Pro for Mac can easily convert IMX50 MXF to MOV, MP4 and MKV with original multi track. If I edit IMX50 MXF with FCP, I can directly choose multi-track ProRes ad output.
