I really cannot understand all the thumbs down as it did everything efficiently. The Installation was quick and it registered immediately and worked straight away. The tests I ran passed every time.
BTW I am operating the latest Windows 8 Vista 64 bit I cannot however speak for those who don't bother to read the installation and operating instructions,or those using other operating systems, I only know that it works for me.
A big thankyou to GAOTD and the manufacurers of this software for allowing us the privilage of using this very useful program.

Hi again, nikolai igor stepan in post 9, don't beat Yoursef too much for trying few tricks.., as that only shows human nature? Most of us wouldn't be any wiser if we didn't try to figure out 'this and that' with Softs for ourselves on occasions, and always believed every word in manuals and descriptions.. This case only proves it!

On principal - sure, it's wrong to tell user/buyer porkies, especially selling something for chunky asking prices.. Here however, thanks to Your inquisitive nose - it might in fact persuade few folks to grab this Software while it's free and keep it, or indeed purchase knowing what it 'does', if as You found out - one can trick it and carry on with the rest? Question is - did Your outsmarted 'new' extension work well converting and turning Your File(s) into nicely presented end product of Your choice?? BTW - both Your comments today deserve equal applause, You first gave hope to many and further still You bettered it:) despite Your disappointment, thumbs up for that. Hope nobody at Aunsoft studio loses a job, only joking, I'm sure it won't come to that.

@#20 - Their Tivo converter is on sale for 10 bucks ... almost free :-)
But Tivo is just mpg that's been encoded. You can decode it with tivodecode (free) and then use any editor or converter that works with mpg.

Ivan. This simplifies the process of moving a complicated layered video with multiple audio tracks sequence from say Adobe Premiere over to another editing house that may or may not use the same program you used to edit your film.
Also, after finishing up a film, you may find it convenient to export your film in this format to a backup hard drive so that if you ever want to quickly make a change to your film, you won't have to go through the headache of trying to load an old editing sequence with multiple video and audio sources that may or may not load correctly due to software updates or misplaced media files.
I assume this program only exports a single layer video track, so an editor should probably also export an additional video track without text overlays in the case that text on the screen needs to be altered/updated, thus the editor has a clean scene to throw up new text.

Apparently - this will only input MXF formats.

Where does one actually ever see MXF format?
Until today's listing, I had never heard of MXF
Just what we all need, another container format.

That makes it 100% useless to me, and I've uninstalled it.
I'll stick with Video-to-Video

Isn't it funny, you come here most days and there's loads of posts complaining about it being another media player/encoder or dvd burner being given away and wanting something different.

So today there's something very different and the first two posts are complaining about that! Come on people, if you don't want the same old thing, you'll have to deal with assorted odd and niche software from time to time.

That is a video processing software. When you take a video using 4 microphones and multi-channel audio recorder you can make HD video with 5.1 audio.
I would understand if nobody here ever seen multi-channel recorder, half of you never made any video of better quality than mobile phone, most of you never had HD camera and microphone.
Is it a reason for voting down? Next GAOTDs you will get nothing more than another cheap video converters.

Hi, very vague description of this Product on this Giveaway, so went on their pages to find out more..

Since there is no proper sceenshots (among other things) of this Software I had to first accept 'pop-ups' to be able to open certain sections (Support and FAQs, Testimonials etc) and zoom in (yes) page to 200 at least to 'see' anything at all! Anyway, this might clarify few matters:

"Aunsoft TransMXF is an ideal MXF converter tool developed for camcorder users, especially for those who have a professional Panasonic P2 camcorder, or a Canon XF camcorder, or any other camcorders that shoot videos in MXF format"

So much for INPUT File(s) I gather.
As for OUTPUT: "You can get the output files in many formats for example: AVI, MPG, MP4, VOB"...,a.s.o

Useful feature for a user?: "Merge several video clips into one file for smooth playback"
Aha, their bestsellers: TransMXF Pro for Mac..

It might be indeed for 'narrow audiences', but not for me to judge who they are and if they'll find use for this Software. Good luck to those who have, I have to pass on this occasion, as I have nothing to 'feed' this Software with to even test it.

Hope it helps.

Interesting to research the MXF format, which I hadn't heard of before today's giveaway. This format has some earmarks for an up-and-coming format that might be worth paying attention to. Found some cool info here: http://www.pro-mpeg.org/pages/main.php?page=0002

I have no need for this TODAY, but tomorrow... well, I might just stick this in my toolbox "just in case"...

Installed and registered on a Windows 7 64bit system no issues. You need to turn automatic updates off. GPU encode already selected.
The only issue is, you have to have *.mxf files to work with. Since the first time I have heard of *.mxf files was this morning, this software is useless to me.
I am more interested in their Tivo converter software from their website. Give that away and I'll be ALL over it! ;)

I had this last year around Thanksgiving and plaid with for few hours.
This is what it does:
Imagine a bag with a label on it that says "MXF", now get your CDs, DVD or any audio video files and drop it in the bag. Hang the bag on the wall and keep it there as an archives of the above items.
Now if you need to use it, open the bag and pull a CD, DVD and or a file and play it on your player, that's it.
There no conversions because they are saved in its original formats.
In other words, this is like conglomerations of your media in one place for storing, nothing more nothing less. If you like to play a different format on your player, just convert on the fly any audio format from the "MXF" bag to any audio format as a final step.

@nikolai igor stepan

Please let us know how you get on.
I've got some old video tapes I may like to convert. Currently I am planning to copy them onto a DVD in my DVD player/recorder and then pop it into my PC to convert and store on HDD.

Would be interested in hearing how you get on with the s/w.

Cheers,
Arnie

Downloaded, installed, and registered with no problems. The main purpose of this program is to convert MXF files to other formats. It seems good program and has a nice interface but I couldn't test it because I don't have any video/audio files with MXF format. I have no use of it. Uninstalled.

MXF files created by the Canon XF100 video camera have stereo sound, but are being recognized as a mono source.

When trying to edit an MXF file from my Canon XF100 Aunsoft TransMXF Pro keeps crashing.

It looked like a very useful tool. Unfortunately it's not. Shame.

Niche yes -- narrow no... More & more cameras record video to mxf files.

#4: "Consequently, I intend to download and install this program because I may be able to use it to transfer videos on old video tapes to my laptop."

If you're talking about VHS, don't bother with mxf -- it'll add nothing but complexity. With VHS [& versions like Hi8 or Super VHS] you've got lower quality to start with -- if you don't intend to do any editing [trimming is OK], capture directly into the final digital format you want to have or use, & that'll avoid [sometimes an awful lot of] generational loss. Personally I found FWIW that using a Pani DVD Recorder did a better job of digitizing VHS because of its analog filter circuits vs. trying to do the same thing in software.

Wikipedia has an OK article that's more than marketing hype & not overly involved technically.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Material_Exchange_Format
.
We talk about avi & mov & mkv as being container formats for audio/video -- IMHO think of mxf as being a way to package those containers together with other data critical to your project. It sounds reasonable enough, but of course like everything video there's always this gap, at least at first, between original intent & actual execution. Start Googling on phrases with mxf, e.g. mxf conversion, & you'll see being able to read the overall package file does not mean being able to read some new codec or other that some camera maker for instance came up with. Issues with the way audio is stored are also common, e.g. as 8 mono files, though you most likely won't be dealing with more than stereo using your own camera.

And that's where most people, home users & hobbyists & such will encounter mxf -- it's what their camera records. Cameras use electronics to encode their video, much [most?] of the electronics inside cameras are patented, proprietary design, & so the actual video written to storage very often differs from one camera maker to the next in its exact compression format. So you need software that A) understands mxf, & B) understands the camera's video format. My advice, FWIW as always, would be to start by researching what other people shooting with the same camera have already figured out & are using -- hopefully that will save you a lot of time & effort if not pain.

DO bear in mind that every time you convert &/or re-encode audio/video you'll have some generational quality loss. If you can't handle the content of a audio/video file(s) as-is, it's better to just put it into another container *if* that will work, and skip any conversions. If that won't work for you, try to use Avisynth [or VapourSynth] to avoid encoding/converting to an intermediate file or files, & if that doesn't work, use a lossless codec or format for any intermediates. Nothing more than common sense really, if you re-encode your video to an intermediate file using a format that throws out data, then after whatever editing re-encode that to a format that again throws away data, the result will show the effects of reducing [throwing away] quality twice.

ffmpeg has been able to work with mxf files for several years now -- if you Google you can find lists of command line arguments you might use, &/or versions of ffmpeg more tailored to working with mxf [ffmbc]. Many of the same companies making the ffmpeg-based video convertors on GOTD from time to time also have mxf apps, &/or their converters work with mxf the same way they handle other input formats. Aunsoft is one of these, though they use different methods &/or files for any GPU assist that may work better or worse for you... I've tried software from Aunsoft & one other company using the same or at least very similar code for GPU assist -- on this rig with an AMD 7870 the other company's app did have GPU assist that worked, but the overall result wasn't any faster, and there were problems outputting some frame sizes -- Aunsoft's apps OTOH crashed with GPU assist on, so obviously I have no comparison data available.

For those interested in information about this file format it can be found at the following link
http://www.fpdigital.com/resource/files/mxf.pdf

From a quick read of the above it looks like it could be a video cross-platform of the future.

This is very specialized software that may be useful to those who are already using MXF format.

If you understand any of the following from from Wikipedia the software may be useful:
MXF is a "container" or "wrapper" format which supports a number of different streams of coded "essence", encoded with any of a variety of codecs, together with a metadata wrapper which describes the material contained within the MXF file.
MXF is in the process of evolving from standard to deployment. The breadth of the standard can lead to interoperability problems as vendors implement different parts of the standard.

MXF is fairly effective at the interchange of D10 (IMX) material, mainly because of the success of the Sony eVTR and Sony's eVTR RDD to SMPTE. Workflows combining the eVTR, Avid NLE systems, and broadcast servers using MXF in coordination with AAF are now possible.

From my understanding: MXF standard is a wrapper, it is compression standard independent. With MXF you can connect e.g. a MPEG2 MXF file with a MP4 MXF file, put them into one MXF file, without qualityloss. Metadata in the output MXF file keeps them separated.
This program can add one MXF to another (wrap them), and convert MXF´s to more widely known formats, HD video, mov, mp4, mkv, avi, flv, wmv, mpg. It can do some other stuff like mixing multiple audiotracks into one track and help solve some problems importing MXF.
MXF seems nice, but i don´t think that it will be widely used in a home setting: a bit strange GOTD.

I am sorry to admit that this program was a disappointment to me.
I discovered that it converts files with the extension .mxf to other formats not the opposite.
Furthermore, I changed the extention of a video file from .mpg to .mxf by manually retyping it and the program dealt with it as an MXF video file and converted it to HD mpg as I choosed!
If a program says that it converts MXF audio and video files to other formats and then accepts other formats than .mxf then it is just a fruad, hocus bocus.
For a 45$ PRO program, one expects that the manufacturer respects one's expectations.

Please look for your native language, too!

Aunsoft TransMXF Pro 1.0.0.3240 perhaps would be more interesting if it could convert in both directions. But I suppose conversions aren't lossless. Therefore the idea "convert to MFX, edit/cut etc. with excellent software (which one?), convert back" would decrease quality twice to thrice.

As my rare videos are 3D and as above they tell nothing about 3 D ...

I do a lot of Video Editing so would like to add this program to my "Video Conversion Arsenal."
Downloaded and installed to Windows XP Pro SP3 with ease.
NO attempted "hijacks," "bloatware," or requests for you E address.
Registration simple. (Pop-up window appears at end of the install. Just copy and paste the code from the "read Me" file.)
NO virus warnings (not that I expected any from this very safe site).
Thanks Aunsoft & GAOTD for an interesting piece of software I look forward to using.

It's a "container" - in the same way AVI and MOV are "containers" - i.e. they are a basic format for storing audio/video and the metadata that tells the player or editor which codec to use.

This program copies or transcodes to other container formats, but it should be noted that the statement "TransMXF Pro supports almost all audio and video formats with zero quality loss" is misleading. Any transcoding (non-copy) operation involves quality loss unless it is to a lossless codec such as HuffYUV. So converting a MPG MXF to a Sorensen MOV will, by definition, result in quality loss.

"MXF" stands for "Material Exchange Format" which, from I barely understood is a universal format allowing transfer of audio and video files between diferent equipments, such as TV, camcoders, iPod, iPhone without the need for re-encoding (conversion).
Also, this format enables editing of audio or video files by any editing software irrespective of its nature.
Consequently, I intend to download and install this program because I may be able to use it to transfer videos on old video tapes to my laptop.
Thanks GAOTD.
