Canon C500 MXF read errors in Premiere Pro CS6/CS5/CS4

Summary: If you get the importing error message while importing Canon C500 MXF files to Adobe Premiere Pro CS6, CS5 or CS4, Pavtube MXF Converter will be the best MXF to Adobe Premiere Pro solution for you.

Canon has officially announced the EOS C500, the professional 4K video camera output that it promised at the NAB trade show in April. A continuation of the concept of the C500, it can capture Raw 4K video footage and offers frame rates of up to 120fps in compressed 4K. It also captures 2K footage (2,048 x 1,080 pixels) at 12-bit, with 4:4:4 Y'CbCr chroma sub-sampling for high colour resolution. For 4K and 2K recording, uncompressed output is delivered to external recording systems via built-in dual 3G SDI ports. Dual HD-SDI monitor outputs support external live monitoring. Simultaneously, HD content can be written to dual onboard CF cards to provide proxy video for offline NLE systems.

___________________________________________

Canon C500 is very excellent, you may have bought a C500 camcorder and need to edit C500 files in Premiere Pro CS 4/5/6, but C500 MXF files are not well supported by Premiere Pro CS6, as you may encounter many audio and video problems, such as bitrate unsupported, and synchronization program.

We did a test, we had only been able to get 35Mbps and 25Mbps files to work in PPro CS4, we have to use CS5 or above to edit natively 50MBPS 422HD recordings with AMA MXF or Canon XF Plugin. To edit C500 MXF videos, you'd better upgrade to CS5/CS6. But some users can't upgrade to CS5/CS6, what will you do?

In fact, it is an easy solution for many users, it can save money and same time. The most importnat is that the conversion won't reduce the video qaulity. Here we run Pavtube MXF to Premiere Pro Converter to take an example. Below is the simple guide on how to convert C500 MXF movies to Premiere Pro CS4/CS5/CS6 supported formats.

___________________________________________

Just free download or buy Pavtube MXF Converter for Mac, and install on your Mac:

Step 1. After downloading, install and run this Mac MXF Converter for Premiere Pro, just copy the MXF files from the CF cards right to your hard drive, import the files to the software.

Step 2. Click "Format" bar to choose the output format. Click "Format > Adobe Premiere/Sony Vegas > MOV (AVC)(*.mov) or MPEG-2 Video (*.mpg)" as output format. The MXF to Premiere CS Converter for Mac will convert Canon C500 MXF videos to MOV/MPG with the original video resolution.

Step 3. You can click "Settings" button to adjust the parameters, such as resolution, bitrate, etc.

Step 4. Click "Convert" button to start converting Canon C500 MXF to MOV/MPG for importing to Premiere Pro CS4/5/6 on Mac.

After the conversion is finished, just run Adobe Premiere Pro CS4/5/6 and import the .mpg or .mov files for editing. You will find the output video work perfectly on Adobe Premiere Pro CS.

PS. If you do not know how to import video to Adobe, please reference the following guide:

Import WMV to FCP X with the Best Quality

Overview: WMV is a Microsoft Media Video features high definition quality. As a Mac user, you may often feel a headache to deal with WMV format, including importing WMV to FCP X for further editing with the best quality.

**************************

The .wmv (Windows Media Video) is the main format used in all videos processed and saved using the Windows system and its video tools such as Windows Movie Maker. It exists in every computer running a Windows operating system and stands today as one of the most used video formats. While the .wmv format is perfect for Windows Movie Maker, it's just inevitable to attempt using .wmv formats in other video editing software such as Final Cut Pro. Since .wmv videos are native to Windows, some Mac users may encounter problems when trying to import WMV to FCP X for editing with the best quality.

Some questions are found in the WMV to FCP X forum:

"I'm a newbie using FCP and have a .wmv file that I would like to add chapters to and want to know the best way to do it. I'm assuming I'd have to convert the .wmv file to a .mov or .avi file in order to work with it in FCP but I'm not sure what the best way is to convert the file in a format that'll work. I am not sure if compressor can help with that?"

"I have tried a couple of different conversion programs to convert a .wmv file to .mov or .mp4, and all seem to result in a viewable mp4, but when I import into FCP and try to put the footage into my sequence, it won't render. The sound renders, but the video remains 'unrendered'. Does anyone know why this is happening and how can I import WMV to FCP X?"

To do this, a Mac WMV to FCP X video converter is needed. Here Pavtube HD Video Converter for Mac is highly recommended to convert WMV to FCP X friendly video format on Mac. Moreover, some video editing features such as trimming, cropping, rotating, merging, adding watermarks, etc. are provided to take your videos to the next level.

How to import WMV to FCP X with the best quality?

Step 1: Launch the HD WMV to FCP X Video Converter on your Mac, and then click the "Add video" button to import your WMV files directly. In order to import several files at one time, you can click "Add from folder" button.

Step 2: Click the "Format" bar to get the drop-down menu and you can get "Final Cut Pro>>Apple ProRes codec", including ProRes 422, ProRes 422 (HQ), ProRes 422 (LT), ProRes 422 (Proxy) and ProRes 4444. Choose the proper one you want. Here, we suggest you to choose Apple ProRes 422 .mov as the best output format.

Step 3: Press the "Settings" icon and you'd better set the video frame rate as 30fps, video size as 1920*1080 for editing WMV in FCP X easily.

Step 4: Click the "Convert" button at the bottom right corner to start converting WMV to FCP X. Once the conversion completes, you are free to import WMV to FCP X for further editing!
