[Tips]Convert Canon XF105 MXF to Apple ProRes MOV for FCP X

You must be disappointed when the FCP X failed to import recordings from Canon XF105. 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 7 does not work with the Canon XF codec. The XF105 (XF300/XF305) utilizes Canon's XF Codec – a file-based MPEG-2 compression with an MXF File Wrapper that ensures the widest compatibility with existing industry infrastructure, metadata and non-linear editing (NLE) systems. The codec's 4:2:2 color sampling provides ultra-fine transitions in tone and color for maintaining the highest image quality needed for advanced post production processing. If you want to edit with MXF natively, get Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5...Or convert the Canon MXF to Final Cut Pro X can edit natively, say Apple ProRes 422 encoded MOV format. Here's a detailed workaround for getting Canon MXF shootings into FCP X.

1. Transfer the .mxf clips to Mac HDD.

2. Get Pavtube MXF to MOV Converter for Mac.
