Topic: Can After Effects CC support MXF files from Sony XDCAM camcorders?
This article I will concentrate on how to import Sony XDCAM MXF to After Effects CC on Mac OS Mavericks. If you are planning to add some MXF clips to Adobe AE for further editing, just read on.

Perhaps the most exciting new feature of Adobe's motion graphics application is the Live 3D Pipeline between After Effects CC and Cinema 4D. With upcoming support for Adobe Anywhere, which allows video teams to work on a shared server without having to download source media, broadcast and post-production professionals can collaborate regardless of location. However, a bit frustrating. You will find your MXF footages from Sony XDCAM are not well supported by After Effects CC on Mac OS Mavericks. A typical issue is quoted as below:

Moved one of our Macs to Mavericks (as a test) and have lost the ability to import Sony F5 mxf files directly into an AE project. Current configuration OS 10.9.2 and After Effects CS6 11.0.4. Went from OS 10.8.5 where it was working perfectly. Doesn't seem to be an update from either the Sony or Adobe side to solve this problem. Tried a trial of the CC and it doesn't work there either (although Premiere will import the file directly). I like using Synthetic Aperture for the color correction of the s-log files. Does anyone have a workaround without having to first make a movie file? We still have many other machines configured with the old OS so we aren't in any major bind.

*************************************************************************

Well, you can see, when comes to Mac Mavericks, Sony XDCAM MXF fiels are becoming heavy for After Effects CC to handle. Originally you can download and use the Sony (PLAD-RW1_v1.2_for Mac) plug-in to enable importing of those mxf files. But if you want to find an easier way, you may have have to transcode Sony XDCAM MXF to AE CC6 preferred format like MOV (AVC) to get it working well with your wonderful footages. To help all users to solve the problem, I show you the details in the post.

First, please install a professional Pavtube MXF Converter for Mac, which can transcode Sony XDCAM MXF to a editable format by After Effects CC. As far as I know, this MXF to AE Converter is designed to transform all MXF videos. It also allows you convert MXF to any other format as you want for importing into different NLE apps, such as Premiere Pro, After Effects, iMovie, FCP 6 7 X, Avid Media Composer, and more. Just download it and follow the workflow using After Effects CC with Sony XDCAM on Mac OS Mavericks.


*************************************************************************

How to convert Sony XDCAM MXF to After Effects CC editable format on Mac OS Mavericks?

Step 1. Connect your Sony XDCAM camcorder to Mac and keep it on, or use a card reader to transfer your footage to Mac. Get this MXF to AE Converter installed, click top left two icons to load individual videos or the entire folder correspondingly.


Step 2. Choose best format for editing in After Effects CC.

Click the drop-down list besides "Format", choose "Adobe Premiere Sony Vegas > MOV(AVC)(*.mov)" as the most compatible format as well as best video quality for After Effects CC. You can also choose "MPEG-2 (*.mpg)", "WMV (VC-1) (*.wmv)" or Final Cut Pro > Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov).


Step 3. Adjust output video settings including video size, codec, bitrate, frame rate by clicking "Settings", all according to your needs. (Optional)

Step 4. Click the big red "Convert" to start converting Sony XDCAM MXF to AVC MOV. Wait for a while, you can get the fresh hot converted video which is compatible with After Effects CC.


*************************************************************************

After the conversion is finished, just run Adobe After Effects CC and import the generated .mov files. You will find the output video work perfectly on After Effects CC as well as for After Effects CS6, CS5, CS4 for freely editing on Mac OS Mavericks.
