Is it possible to import the P2 MXF files directly from my camera into After Effects? Or do I have to import them with a 3rd party program such as Premiere or Avid and then import them into After Effects CC?
Up to now, Adobe After Effects CC seems to work fine if you import your P2 MXF footages directly from cameras, but if you have already copied P2 MXF recordings to your HDD or you download them from somewhere, the importing error may jump out. If you accidentally meet with the problem, the best solution is to convert P2 MXF to MPEG-2, the format which is proved to be the most compatible one with all the Adobe products, including Adobe After Effects CC.
The most important part is how to find out the best P2 MXF Converter among so many options on Google and Bing.
Here I highly recommend Pavtube iMixMXF (Best Mac (multi-track) MXF Converter Review) which could be the professional P2 MXF converting tool that can work the P2 MXF well with Adobe After Effects CC. It can support the multiple audios as output, would you like to have a try?
