MXF to Camtasia Converter- Let Camtasia Studio 7/8 work with MXF files
Q1: "I went on a couple vacations and want to edit some footage I took in Camtasia Studio 8.0 pro. My camera is Canon HF G10. When I try importing, Camtasia says it's an unknown format or incompatible. The files are .mxf. Should I convert MXF to Camtasia Studio supported format first?"
Q2: "I included an MXF file from my C300 MK II camcorder that caused Camtasia Studio 8 to crash,I guess my all my problems with Camtasia Studio 8 must be due to the fact that Camtasia 8 does not support MXF, so , is there anything I can do to get the MXF video file worked with Camtasia?"
Camtasia Studio supports AVI, .WMV, MPEG-1, .MP3, .WAV, .WMA, and .MOV (QuickTime) files. It does not support MXF, AVCHD files (.m2ts, .mts, and .m2t), XAVC, Video_TS, MPEG-2, MOD, Ogg, WebM, .RM (RealPlayer), .FLV (Flash Video), 3GPP, and SWF created outside Techsmith products. It means that those videos incompatible cannot be imported to Camtasia Studio directly and must be converted or re-recorded.
