    MXF grayed out

     I want to digitze MXF instead of OMF, but the MXF button is grayed out.  Any ideas.  I'm on Xpress Pro 4.1.

    It's grayed out in the Media Creation settings? 

    Also, I can't remember specifically, but didn't MXF support come with 4.6?

     Nice catch, Kenton!  I just checked the 4.6 ReadMe, and it says that MXF support came in 4.5.1.

    good luck,

     Yes, it's grayed out under "Media Creation."  I don't know about 4.6, but it seems like the MXF button wouldn't be there if there was no support for it.  I'm assuming I have to turn something else on or off to enable the button, but I don't know what it is.

    Open the "Media Creation" setting- On the far right there should be a tab marked "Media Type". See if you can select MXF on the "Video File Format" Drop Down Menu.

     Unfortunatley, the tab doesn't exist.

    Re: MXF grayed out

     If you are really using 4.1, then as Kenton and Carl say, you definitely don't have MXF support.  The button may be there and greyed out, it doesn't matter.  The first release that offered MXF support was 4.5.1.  I know this because it was one of the reasons I chose to upgrade to that version.
