A growing number of professional digital camcorders tend to record videos in the MXF format, such as Sony XDCAM, Panasonic HVX200/HPX300/HPX500 P2 HD, Canon XF100/XF300/XF305/C300/C500 and much more. Users who want to edit MXF footage with PowerDirector (even with latest PowerDirector 13) usually run into incompatibility issue. In fact, MXF is not the supported list of Power Director.
