Convert P2 MXF/MXF to Apple ProRes for Final Cut Pro on Mac

MXF (Material Exchange Format) supports an array of different streams of coded "essence" as a "container" or "wrapper" format. MXF has full time code and metadata support, and is intended as a platform-agnostic stable standard for future professional video and audio applications. Sony XDCAM and Panasonic DVCPRO P2 were the two of the first data-recording camera systems of producing MXF. And Canon released its new lineup of professional file-based XF camcorders to produce the MXF later. They produced mutually incompatible files – MXF and P2 MXF, due to opaque subformat options obscured.

Apple ProRes is a lossy video compression format to use in post production that supports up to 4k; it is the successor of the Apple Intermediate Codec and was introduced in 2007 with Final Cut Studio 2. ProRes is a line of intermediate codecs, which means they are intended for use during video editing, and not for practical end-user viewing. The benefit of an intermediate codec is that it retains higher quality than end-user codecs while still requiring much less expensive disk systems compared to uncompressed video. It is comparable to Avid's DNxHD codec or CineForm who offer similar bitrates which are also intended to be used as intermediate codecs. ProRes 422 is highly supported by Final Cut Pro.
