Calibrated MXF plug in

Down loaded the MXF plug in for Mac viewing of MXF files.. without FCP or any other editing software..

When I double click a Nanoflash MXF file.. just get a box come up with alot of info.. but no way to actually view the clip ??? I have the XDCAM plug in too.. .mov files at fine.. open in QT player.. but MXF is seeming to be a pain..

Thanks

Re: Calibrated MXF plug in

Hi Robin,

Sorry for the confusion - the box you're seeing is Calibrated MXF QuickStat - that's the free application that comes with Calibrated{Q} MXF Import for OSX - it just tells you the basic info (video/audio/metadata) of a MXF file. Since Mac OSX does not have a native player of MXF files - then it automatically associates Calibratd MXF QuickStat with opening MXF files.

In the Calibrated{Q} MXF Import User Guide on page 24 - it tells you how to open MXF files in QT Player - as well as how to associate MXF files with QT Player - so that when you double-click on a MXF file it always opens in QT Player. You can find the User Guide online or in the /Applications/Calibrated/Docs folder.

You should also be able to 'spacebar' on a MXF file in Finder to play the MXF file in a QuickLook Preview Window.

FYI - the DEMO MODE limitation is that onyl the first 30 seconds of a MXF file are shown (or less than half if the MXF file is less than 30 seconds)


You can also email me at info (at) calibratedsoftware (dot) com if you had any questions or needed any help.

Cheers
Greg
