    I am not such guys who obsessed with kinds of technical stuffs. To me , simple to use, function well is all I need. I was trying to edit some web series and footage which was sent to me without the proper file structure. That was totally a big challenge to me. Although I have tried my best to figure those problems out by myself. But things turned out that I can’t solve them , for I am not such professional guys. So I turned to the Internet for help .
    Pavtube just came out as a best solution for me. I used it to input my videos structure and then it just start conversion without any problem. I choose the ProRes format which will be the most suitable format for FCP. Luckily, I have found Pavtube MXF Converter for Mac to save me from this dilemma.
