Many users wanna edit MXF videos from Canon C300, Canon C500, PS card on macOS Sierra. While as you know, Final Cut Pro, iMovie, Avid MC and other NLE system need a correct card structure to read and ingest (P2/Canon) MXF clips. Then how to deal with those Corrupt MXF files?
The best way I found is to transcode MXF files to FCP (X) or other NLE natively compatible codec via a 3rd party app-Brorsoft MXF Converter for Mac. Not like other programs online which simply converts corrupt MXF videos to MOV format, it offers ProRes 422, DNxHD, Apple InterMediate Codec .mov for Final Cut Pro, Avid Media Composer, iMovie, FCE and more editing tools. If you are a PC user, Brorsoft MXF Converter is your first choice.
