I suppose you can make an ffmpeg *.bat file and put it in your Right-Click SendTo folder. Then you just right-click on the first .mxf file and send to your bat file. All .mxf files will be transcoded.Got my retirement plans all set. Looks like I only have to work another 5 years after I die........
Yes, batch files in your SendTo folder appear in the Send To menu when you right click on a file. Here's an example bat file that uses ffmpeg to remux a video to MKV:
"g:\program files\ffmpeg\bin\ffmpeg" -i %1 -vcodec copy -acodec copy "%~d1%~p1%~n1.mkv" pause
For x264 encoding with presets I use batch files like this:
start /b /low x264.exe --preset=slow --crf=18 --sar=1:1 --output %1.mkv %1 pause
In XP the SendTo folder is in C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\SendTo. In newer versions of Windows it's easiest to find by searching -- click on the start/Windows button and enterCode:

oh, it's complicated ..
It's not complicated. You don't need to copy the batch file into the SendTo folder, you can just use a shortcut to the batch file and put it in there. It works just fine.
Or you can create shortcuts to your batch files on your desktop and drag whatever file into them to batch convert.
For instance here is a batch file I made to encode an Avisynth script into a YouTube ready avc/aac mp4. It will auto-name the output to match the input and put them into the named folder:

I have to do a proof because my basement is:
set /p "d=Type source path (or press enter for current folder): "
if not defined d set "d=%cd%"
if not exist "%d%" echo Enter valid path - try again & goto :loop
cd /d "%d%"
for /f "delims=" %%a in ('dir *.mxf /b /od /a-d') do (
if defined done goto :EOF
if not exist "v:\automazioneclip\output\%%~na.*" (
echo %d%\%%~na.mxf|clip >nul
v:\automazioneclip\core\ffmpeg -i %d%\%%~na.mxf -map_channel 0.1.0 -map_channel 0.1.1 -af "volume=volume=9dBrecision=fixed" v:\automazioneclip\output\temp.wav
