AVI is a traditional popular format introduced by Microsoft in 1992. AVI had gained its popularity since it was created. It can contain both audio and video data in a file container that allows synchronous audio-with-video playback. Like the DVD video format, AVI files support multiple streaming audio and video.
Different from AVI format, MXF is like a freshman. It was developing in the decade. In a word, MXF is like a container format for professional digital video and audio media defined by a set of SMPTE standards. It was designed to address plenty of problems with non-professional formats. It has full time code and metadata support which enables it output full HD MXF videos. Multi-track MXF is one kind of MXF formats which is with multiple audio tracks.
