    That looks like a good question to type into a Google search box. It doesn't seem to present any technical problem we can help solve.

    From where did you get the files. Basically, .imx files are based on final cut pro of Apple software while .mxf files contain video/ audio data as well as other data bitstreams. Why are you asking the differences that will be cleared first. Is there any error/ could not open files like that. Please come with more details.

    I am trying to get some video which I would like to incorporate in to my documentary film.  The client may provide the video either in IMX files or MXF.  I would like to know which format to choose as I will be editing the video with FCP program.

    Choose whichever one gives you the closest to what you need. Either should work. You're the one who will know if the format fits better.

    Thank you so much for your answer.  

    One more question, Do these files, (IMX and MXF) have any difference in picture quality/resolution?  If yes, which file will have higher resolution?

    Thank you once again.

    Imx supprots ntsc / pal video using high-quality compression. Basically they are not comparable, but depend on their picture quality/ base. Imx can slightly better than .mxf format.
