MXF or MOV in Nuke?

Anyone have experience using Nano files in Nuke 5?

I am trying to figure out whether Cineform is needed since it looks like the Mainconcept plugin doesn't work in AE and I need something to work in all apps.

It sounds like your using Windows so hopefully I'm answering this correctly based on that.

Nuke has only recently added directshow support so it might be able to read mxf(ple version is a free download from the foundry site). The trouble is most compositors don't like GOP codecs(mpeg2,4, etc...) since many frames are created on the fly and your compositro wants a whole image.

So I would turn those mxf files into and image sequences with premiere or whatever can use that mainconcept plugin. An added benefit is that image sequences are faster with since most compositors can load part of the image into memory that your using rather then the huge parts of the movie file like it has to do with mov/avi/mxf.
