Download Pro Video Formats

You can download the update Pro Video Formats directly from Apple:

If Apple has removed the page (which they do sometimes because it is regularly updated) you can just do a Google search for "apple pro video formats" and you should be good to go.

As soon as you've installed the Pro Video Formats you can reopen Resolve 17 and start editing MXF files.
