  2. I was always bothered by the problems of conversion from multi-track MXF. The output files often fail to retain its channels. I was even driven mad until I run into Aunsoft TransMXF Pro for Mac.

    It's just an amazing converter with enormous practical functions! You guys may have a try! I think it will be a brilliant choice!
