The Way Importing C300 MXF recordings into Final Cut Pro 6/7 Flawlessly

Image

Below are several disscussions about looking for the way importing Canon C300 MXF files to the Final Cut Pro (6 or 7):

Q1: MXF files into FCP 6
I'm interested in the new Canon C300 camera, but I'm still working on an Apple G5 with FCP 6.0.6. Is there an application, plug-in, etc. for the older FCP to take in MXF files? [G5, Mac OS X (10.4.11)]

Q2: importing .MXF files to Final Cut
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 7, Mac OS X (10.5.8)]

Q3: Support for Canon MXF from C300 in FCP?
How do I import .mxf files into Final Cut Pro? This is the latests and greatests software right? There must be a way. Help Please.

Here many folks are talking about how to import Canon MXF files into Final Cut Pro 6 or 7 for editing without rendering time. Well, don't blame to the Final Cut Pro, the "Import from Camera…" option works just like "Log and Transfer". The thing is, even FCP 7 does not work with the Canon or Panasonic P2 MXF codec. 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 native formats (e.g. Apple ProRes encoded .mov format) along with some help from the third-party software. To help those who wanna edit C300 MXF files in Final Cut Pro, here I share with you a simple guide on how to convert Canon MXF files to Apple ProRes format and then log and transfer encoded MXF files to FCP for editing flawlessly.

Step 1. Import MXF files to the top Mac Canon C300 MXF to FCP ProRes Converter.

Step 3. Click "Convert" button to start transcoding C300 mxf files to Apple ProRes Codec for Final Cut Pro under Mac OS.

Some more helpful features of the app:
