How to get MXF files with multiple audio tracks into Pinnacle Studio 16

Description: This is a brief guide of how to convert multi-track MXF to multi-track AVI files with the help of Pinnacle Studio 16 and Pavtube MXF MultiMixer.

Most cameras and camcorders now record videos with multiple audio tracks. Canon XF series, for example, are the most typical and widely used models which include two audio tracks, one is recorded by microphone and the other recorded by headset. Of course, more audio tracks with professional devices.

Do you happen to have these MXF videos with multiple audio tracks and don’t know how to display all of them? Wondering losing audio streams/tracks when converting to other formats like AVI? Want to edit multi-track videos in Pinnacle Studio or simply playback AVI videos with multiple audio tracks?

Here is a solution for both Windows and Mac users. Not the simplest, but could be a life-saver.

Required tool:

It’s annoying that many cameras are not accepted by NLEs directly; although there are many video converting tools claim that they can transcode MXF files with best quality, most of them still cannot perfectly preserve all the audio tracks as original. However, Pavtube MXF Multi-Mixer is absolutely an amazing multi-track video converter: it just does what it should to do as its name. It takes quite a few whiles to find this tool, but luckily I finally got it.

Mac users can find Pavtube iMixMXF here.

Part 1. Import and Convert 

We tested with a Canon XF100 video with two audio tracks. Pinnacle Studio does not recognize MXF files; so we need to convert this MXF to another format that Pinnacle appreciates.

Pavtube MXF MultiMixer interface:
Drag and drop Canon XF100 MXF to this MXF MultiMixer. By clicking the “Properties”, we can also confirm the two audio tracks. Then choose format.

Find a column named “Multi-track Video”, it only has 3 presets: multi-track MKV, multi-track MP4 and multi-track MOV. Choose MKV and hit “Convert”.

(The Mac version added Multi-track ProRes outputting presets for FCP users while Windows version not.)

Now we get a MKV file with two audio tracks.

Part 2. Load file and Separate audio tracks in Pinnacle Studio  

Import this MKV file to Pinnacle Studio 16; drag it to timeline.

Right click and choose “Detach Audio” to separate video and audio.

Now we get video and audio in two tracks.

Click the icon on the left to lock audio track; select video track, hold on Ctrl and hit Delete to trash the video track.

Now we get pure audio files as below.

Unlock it.

Double click audio track to open audio editing interface.

Click the top left icon to switc

Choose “Audio stream 1”, then back to main interface. Export it as “Audio” file separately.

Then back to audio editing interface, switch to Audio stream 2 and export it accordingly.

Now we get two separate audio tracks

Part 3. Combine video and audio; Export. 

First, we need to separate video track as well.

Drag the original MKV file to timeline; lock video track and delete audio track; unlock video.

Then we import the two audio tracks to Pinnacle library; drag them to timeline together with the single video file.

TADA! Just export them; we finally get a AVI file with two audio tracks! Free edit the multi-track AVI files in Pinnacle Studio or just playback it for enjoying.

How to backup Blu-ray/DVD movies to NAS and play on HTPC

Description: The below article will provide a easy way for you to convert your DVD and Blu-ray discs to digital format for storing on your NAS and playing on HTPC.

Q: If you have lots of DVD and Blu-ray discs in hand, what will you do?

A: I am a CEO of a Not For Profit organization that likes computer gaming and watching movies. I am looking to rip my DVD and Blu-ray Disc to digital format to store on my home NSA and play them on my HTPC.

The aims of conversion

That is one typical customer in my survey of “What’s the aim of doing format conversion”. According to my survey, I found many people convert their DVD and Blu-ray movies to digital format for two usages:

Storing on home NAS

NAS, with Network Attached Storage in full, is the extender for home sharing. NAS not only operates as a file server, but is specialized for this task either by its hardware, software, or configuration of those elements. NAS is often manufactured as a computer appliance – a specialized computer built from the ground up for storing and serving files – rather than simply a general purpose computer being used for the role.

Playing on HTPC

A home theater PC (HTPC) or media center computer is a convergence device that combines some or all the capabilities of the personal computer with a software application that supports video, photo, audio playback, and sometimes video recording functionality. With HTPC, you could avoid suffering the load and crowed cinema while having the same enjoyment of the fantastic visual effect.

How to complete the conversion
Free download and install the App: Pavtube Video Converter Ultimate (get 20% off for New Year Promotion)

It’s an all-in-one app right for you. If you are a Mac user, you can use its equivalent Mac version: iMedia Converter for Mac to achieve your goal smoothly. Overall, it support to convert Blu-ray and DVD movies and all kinds of video to the support format like MP4, MKV, etc for you to either store on your home NAS or play on HTPC.

Below is the main interface after you loading your videos to the programe.

Step 1 Load the DVD/Blu-ray movies (Disc, folder, ISO) you want to convert to the program.

Step 2 Click the “Format” option, and choose Common Video > H.264 Video(*.mp4) as output format.

Step 3 Click the convert button under the preview window, and the video converter will start the conversion from Blu-ray/DVD movies to MP4 for storing on NAS and playing on HTPC.

After conversion, you can stream the output videos to NAS or HTPC according to your own needs.

Summary: Read on this article, you can get the hints how to import and edit Panasonic HDC-MDH1 2.7" AVCHD MTS footage with Final Cut Pro 6/7 flawlessly without any issue.  

I purchased Panasonic HDC-MDH1 on 26.3.2012 in Bangalore. This is an exellent professional shoulder mount camera in lowest price, also best for Wedding, Birthday parties, Functions, outdoor shoots etc. Shoots in very lowest light clear picture. No vibration in long zoom shooting. 

I have just shot my first HD wedding video with the MDH1. I am very happy with the video quality with the 2.7" Touchscreen LCD, the camera which records in AVCHD format, I need to edit the   2.7" mts files on Mac with FCP before sharing with my friends and family.

But I find that Panasonic HDC-MDH1's recording AVCHD MTS files are not the preferred format for Final Cut Pro 6/7. Then I think the first step to do is to convert Panasonic mts video to FCP compatible Prores codec for editing with high quality on iMac/MacBook Pro with Mac OS X like Leopard, Snow Leopard, Lion, Mountain Lion and Mavericks 10.9.  Now I will share the easy steps here.

Two ways to ingest Nikon D5300 H.264 MOV to Adobe Premiere Pro on Mac

How to import .mov footage taken by Nikon D5300 to Adobe Premiere Pro without rendering? By converting Nikon mov to Premiere friendly format, you can easily get the smooth workflow with D5300 and Premiere Pro on Mac (Mavericks included).

Nikon D5300 makes fantastic quality images and weighs almost nothing, so it's a pleasure to carry it everywhere. Compared to the pro cameras I often haul, the D5300 feels as if it's hollow, which is a very good thing. It can record H.264/MPEG-4 stored as .MOV video files which ensures high quality.

As the H.264 codec 
is highly compressed, so can not easily and directly import and edit Nikon D5300 mov files on Mac with Adobe Premiere Pro. If you want to import  Nikon D5300 MOV video to Premiere Pro on Mac for editing, you are likely to meet all kinds of problems due to the compatibility issue. So how can we import Nikon D5300 MOV footage to Premiere Pro? Here are two solutions:

Method 1.

Right click your MOV footage; rename the .mov files with .mpg extension. This "fools" Adobe Premiere Pro into thinking it's a different codec.

It works in this way; however, your footages didn't turn into another codec so that Premiere Pro may still does something wrong during editing. And if you didn't do a backup before changing the extension, it really ruins your valuable footage.
