Convert MXF files into a QuickTime format with sound - Solving MXF to QT MOV with no sound issue

Summary: How to solve Canon C300/XF100/XF300 MXF files converted to QuickTime MOV with no sound issue? This article helps you convert MXF files into QuickTime format with sound via selecting correct Audio Stream ID.

Q1: I have been converting MXF files to Quicktime format to input to Final Cut Pro X.  I have hundreds of files and have noticed that some of them are missing sound.  When playing the MXF files back through VLC, I found the ones that converted to Quicktime with no sound were recorded on Channel 2. 

A: Canon MXF contains two audio tracks, one with sound but the other with no sound. Most conversion tools will just pick the track without sound by default. This is the reason why the converted output QT MOV will have no sound but only video. However, Aunsoft TransMXF Pro for Mac allows you easily convert MXF to QT MOV with sound. When you find MXF files with only video previewed in TransMXF Pro for Mac,You can click the "Show selected task properties" button on top of the Format box and then select in the Audio Stream ID box a different audio track. 

Moreover, this MXF video and audio Converter also allows you convert MXF to ProRes MOV with separate audio channels as original for FCP editing. So that you can preserve 2, 4, 8 or more audio channels while transcoding MXF to ProRes without audio tracks lossing.

Below is a guide to convert MXF to QuickTime MOV with sound.
