    I have been using the Pavtube MXF MultiMixer since its version It is very fast and multi files can be converted at the same time. The video trim function become more powerful than before and I like the multitrack output very much. The output file size is not very big but with a quite good video quality. To conclude, it is a simple but very powerful video converting software.

    A great solution to a real pain!
    Had MXF video from Sony XACAM camera. Needed to convert MXF from PC to editing in Sony Vegas. Looked on heaps of forums and software as per chats,plus tried other free software – all a hassle with either no result that worked or poor quality output. Pavtube product is great and works quick on batches and multi-track output. Great value for money – well done and thanks.
