Just learn more knowledge of how to import Avid MXF footage to Camtasia Studio 7/8 for further editing on Mac.

As you know, Avid's ability to track media is excellent, and this ability is partly responsible for it’s pseudo proprietary format – the Avid flavor of the MXF wrapper (a tweaked Op-Atom MXF, in case you were wondering). This wrapper prevents most media players from being able to play the media; prevents most video editing software from being able to edit the Avid MXF media, and Camtasia Studio is no exceptation.
