Below are several disscussions about looking for the way importing MXF files to the Final Cut Pro X:
Q1: MXF files into FCP X
I’m interested in the new Canon XF300 camera, but I’m still working on an Apple G5 with FCP X. Is there an application, plug-in, etc. for the new FCP X to take in MXF files? [G5, Mac OS X (10.4.11)]
Q2: importing .MXF files to Final Cut Pro X
What plug-in do I need to install so i can import and edit .MXF video files in Final Cut. The suggestion of doing Log and Transfer doesn’t work (the .MXF files are gray out not allowing me to select it.) [Final Cut Pro X, Mac OS X (10.5.8)]
Q3: Support for Canon MXF from xf100 in FCP X?
How do I import .mxf files into Final Cut Pro X? This is the latests and greatests software right? There must be a way. Help Please.
Here many folks are talking about how to import MXF files into Final Cut Pro X for editing without rendering time. Well, don’t blame to the Final Cut Pro X, the “Import from Camera…” option works just like “Log and Transfer”. The thing is, even FCP X does not work with the Canon or Panasonic P2 MXF files. As far as i know, to solve those problems, the most important piece of the equation is that transcoding MXF files to Final Cut Pro X native formats(e.g. Apple ProRes encoded mov format) along with some help from the third-party software. To help those who wanna import/edit MXF files in Final Cut Pro X flawlessly, I’m sharing my experience to convert MXF files to Apple ProRes Codec for Final Cut Pro X
