General Notes on Release 1.0 through 1.06:

  1. Can Remove 2:3 or 2:3:3:2 pulldown from 60i HD format, can remove 3:2 or 2:2 pulldown from 60p formats, 2:2 pulldown from 50p format. Can add 2:3 or 2:3:3:2 pulldown to 60i HD format. Can add 2:3 pulldown to 720/24PN format or add 2:2 pulldown to 720/30P or 720/25P formats. MXFX 1.0 does not remove VFR pulldown. MXFX 1.0 does not work with AVC-Intra, DVCPRO50, DVCPRO or DV, but only DVCPROHD. It cannot be used with Sony or any other non-P2 Card MXF files. See MXFX 2 link above for the more powerful MXFX 2 software.
  2. Resize feature presently works only with either progressive source or after removing pulldown from interlaced formats.
  3. Non-recompressed image rotate is available for 720-line formats only. 1080-line formats are rotated with image recompression, but optional grain reduction feature can be used to eliminate added noise in this case. Note: presently thumbnails are not rotated.
  4. Grain reduction employs 2 methods together: 1) intelligent temporal smoothing (averages across successive frames where no motion is present, and 2) spatial smoothing where no image detail is present, in other words away from object edges to preserve image sharpness. Grain reduction feature presently works only with either progressive source or after removing pulldown from interlaced formats.
  5. Use caution when mixing original clips with MXFX-created clips in the same project. Avid Media composer may confuse the original clip with the processed clip. See the MXFX FAQ below.
  6. MXFX does not re-join spanned clips (clips that are recorded across multiple MXF video files). Spanned clips, after processing with MXFX, may appear as a sequence of shorter clips. However the sub-clips can be successfully joined together in numerical order on the timeline to reproduce the entire shot.
