MXF Package Creation Rules Overview

The following table presents a simplified view of which types of items (entity types), file formats, and project codes, are acceptable in an MXF package, depending on whether the package is destined for Textual or Visual Collections.

It is very unlikely that a package that mixes values from the two rows will be processed successfully; if you have a package which requires a value not listed here, or which requires mixing values not listed in the same row, please contact either Lu Ai (regarding Textual Collections) or Astrid Terman (regarding Image Collections), at (352) 392-9020, before sending your package.
