“Hi, there, I need a good batch converter to convert P2 .mxf files from Panasonic AJ-PX800 for use in Final Cut Pro 7. The converter I already installed on my Mac can convert the files, but when I import them to FCP 7, I get an error message: File Error: 1 file(s) recognized, 0 access denied, 1 unknown. Any clue what could be causing this to happen? Or can you please kindly recommend a reliable converter that would do what I want with useful files maintaining good quality?”
