Can Dailies Creator import MXF files?

Dailies Creator is able to read MXF files if you have ffmpeg installed.

Please note that installing ffmpeg requires some familiarity with Terminal and the command line. We also strongly recommend that you test MXF importing well before you start using it in your workflow, since we're not able to test every version of ffmpeg with every kind of MXF files.

To install ffmpeg and enable MXF support in Creator:

  • Download ffmpeg for Mac.
  • Unpack the ZIP file.
  • Copy the ffmpeg binary to /usr/local/bin/ and make sure it's executable.
  • Quit Creator and start it again.
  • Creator should now list MXF below the Import button in the top left of the window.
