- I have files: file000001L.mxf and file000001R.mxf (for left and right channel)
- I need to make file00001.wav, of those mxf files

Is there any free tool (for commercial usage also) that I could use for conversion MXF -> wav?
I need to redo oved 1000 files, so the tool must be able to do the batch/command line tasks

many thanks for all the input!

MXFLib contains MXFSplit which will extract WAV files from MXF.

You just need to do: mxfsplit -w <input>.mxf

You may want to pipe the output into "nul" as mxfsplit can be quite verbose.

At the moment the file will be given a name based on it's location in the file, such as _0001-G16010201.Stream. You either need to rename this file in your batch file (if all the source files are the same format then each file should end up with the same name) or modify the line that builds the filename (about line 640 in mxfsplit.cpp).

MXFLib does not contain tools for manipulating wave files - however there should be many tools available that will allow you to merge the left and right WAV files.
