Sony DSC-WX5 MXF to iMovie transcoder
Can’t import MXF files from your Sony DSC-WX5 to iMovie any longer after upgraded to macOS High Sierra? You are not the only one. At the moment, High Sierra does not have native support for MXF files yet. Fortunately, this problem can be solved via transcoding Sony DSC-WX5 MXF video to iMovie preferred Apple InterMediate Codec (AIC .mov) first.
“Why iMovie refused loading MXF files from my Sony DSC-WX5 on High Sierra that it should open? I hope it is a bug, because now I have an awful lot of projects based on Sony DSC-WX5 MXF files which are unusable (black screen, no sound) and I have no intention of purchasing Final Cut Pro X just to make simple edits. Any ideas?”
You can re-encode your Sony DSC-WX5 MXF files to AIC .mov format for use in iMovie fluently. The Video Converter for Mac below will do this in simple steps.
To transcode Sony DSC-WX5 MXF video to AIC for iMovie editing, do as below:
Download Video Converter for Mac
Step 1: Click “Add File” to load Sony DSC-WX5 MXF video files into this program.
Step 2: Select output format for iMovie
Click “Profile” to select “iMovie and Final Cut Express” > “Apple InterMediate Codec(AIC) (*.mov)” as output format. AIC .mov is iMovie’s favorite editing codec, which iMovie will read and handle well.
If necessary, you can click “Settings” button to modify video and audio parameters like encoder, resolution, frame rate, bitrate, aspect ratio, sample rate, and audio channels. You can also “enable 3D Settings” to add 3D effect to your source media.
Step 3: Click “Convert” to start Sony DSC-WX5 MXF video to iMovie conversion.
As soon as the conversion is complete, click “Open Folder” to get the generated AIC .mov files for editing in iMovie with optimum performance. Hope it helps.
