I am a bit desperate at this point. I have a video file in the MXF container format. MediaInfo identifies it as MXF (OP-1a) XDCAM HD422 and says the Video Stream is plain MPEG. I want to edit the video using AfterEffects CS4, and the format seems to be supported if I read this site correctly.
Unfortunately, when I try to import the file, I am told that AfterEffects does not support that format. The only software I have been able to read this file correctly with was VLC, and the pre-alpha VLMC. The former is a player only however, and the latter exports video fine, but removes the audio in the process, even though the audio track is in the timeline, not muted, and plays fine in the source video in VLMC (not in the timeline... it plays only video there).
Does somebody know how I can get this file into After Effects (or some more common format) using freeware or After Effects? I am not willing to buy another converter for that file. Your help is greatly appreciated.
I am on OS X, but I also have Windows 7 at hand, and I am willing to build stuff from Source or install through MacPorts if that helps. I would even setup a VirtualBox with an Ubuntu if I have to, but I really don't hope I do to read a video file.
