Hardware coding MXF
Hello, currently there is no hardware coding for video in format MXF.
Will such functionality implemented in the future and when?
Can you offer some alternative workflow for us?

I am working with Canon EOS R5C MXF files (XF-AVC 4:2:2 4k).
Machine: M1 Max 64GB
When I play back the files in Premiere Pro, I see that the Media Engine (Hardware Decoder) is not doing any work and the GPU is also not really utilized.
The Hardware Acceleration is activated in the Preferences.
When I play back other footage (4:2:0 h.264 4k), the Media Engine is active.
So this seems to be specific to MXF / XF-AVC h.264 4:2:2 files.
PS: I tested this with the official and beta release.
XAVC MXF uses GPU hardware.
Specifically, what codec(s) are you hoping we'd accelerate further?
