What is an MXC2 file?

An MXC2 file is a cache file created by MAGIX software, such as Music Maker and Movie Studio. It contains metadata the application references to speed up the process of generating previews of media files within folders and subfolders. Users are not meant to open MXC2 files; instead, MAGIX software references them.

More Information

When working with video and audio-related applications, the previews generated for media can significantly decrease the applications' performance. MAGIX software automatically creates MXC2 files to reduce loading times; the software references the files when you browse through folders with the Media Pool built-in program.

If MXC2 files become too prevalent, you can delete them, but this will slow down media preview loading. Also, MAGIX software will re-generate the MXC2 files.

NOTE: Movie Studio was formerly Movie Edit Pro.
