Yes the do, if you use a filterpack like LAV filter or ffdhsow-tryouts
FFmpeg does not create AVI files correctly when the are big? how big? 
Depending on filelength or on filesize?
With MKV there would be no problem, I guess. Right?

Yes, you are right ;) Thats why i set the word "professional with 
quotation marks ;)
MXF is not a container, it is a toolset. But it is widely used.
And that is also the cause "MXF LEGALIZER" tools are comming up more and 
As said above: If MKV would be supported widely from the big standard 
transcoding tools and editing tools...
....this would be awesome.
