Nuke currently supports what are considered 'complete' MXF formats, which means that certain MXF codecs will not work in Nuke.


Supported codecs include:
• 4:2:2 YCbCr 8-/10-bit
• 4:4:4:4 RGBA 8-/10-bit

• Uncompressed (4:2:2 YCbCr and RGB)

Currently unsupported codecs (as of 28/09/2016):
• DV codec family (DV, DVCAM, DVCPRO etc)

• AVC-I (AVC-Intra)
• XDCAM (DV for SD, MPEG2 for SD and HD and MPEG4 for proxy)

Please be aware that there may be further MXF codecs that we have not tested that might also be unsupported.
