Searching to install Apple codecs on a new machine I came across this on Apple support. After the death of Final Cut Pro I did NOT see this coming. Apple has added support for .MXF (Media Exchange Format) to QuickTime. No more transcode inside Final Cut. This is also possibly really great news for people still using Final Cut Pro studio (not X) , since it adds native support for MXF import editing etc to QuickTime. How nice to side step transcode if you’re working with anything other than ProRes, such as XAVC for example.
Will try and test this out on a Mac with Final Cut Studio and post back.
The support was released just before Christmas and you can find it here.
