Solve Importing Error - Import MXF Footages to Adobe Premiere Pro CC/CS6
Material eXchange Format, which is known as MXF, is a container format and can hold almost all knid of video and audio codecs. If you get a error message, saying that the importer reported a generic error while you import MXF footages to Adobe Premiere Pro CS6, the great editing software which is supposed to support the MXF files, the problem should lie in that your MXF files are not the ones that can be recognized by Premiere Pro CS6. As reported, almost all the camera generated MXF files are editable in the latest CS6. The way you get the MXF recordings makes them different from the originals, like the one quoted here:
"I can't import any mxf file into Premiere CS6. While importing, always got the error message. I tried everything and had to intall Canopus.HQ.CODEC.v6.0.7 but nothing changes. I don't understand why I can edit my Canon MXF files in CS6 but the file from my colleague seems not to be importable. Have I lost some important metadata?"
Up to now, Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 seems to work fine if you import your MXF footages directly from cameras, but if you have already copied MXF recordings to your HDD or you download them from somewhere, the importing error may jump out. If you accidentally meet with the problem, the best solution is to convert MXF to MPEG-2, the format which is proved to be the most compatible one with all the Adobe products, including Adobe Premiere Pro CS6. The most important part is how to find out the best MXF Converter among so many options on Google and Bing.
