Q:Can MXF files be imported directly into FCP X or not?
When I try importing my footage directly from the camera Canon XF300 in the File/Import/Media... screen, FCP X tells me: "No Importable Files", "None of the selected files or folders can be imported."
A:Try Brorsoft MXF to FCP X Converter.

Step 1. Connect your Canon XF300 to Mac and copy the MXF video footages to Mac hard drive. Launch MXF to ProRes Converter on Mac. Click the button “File” to add MXF files to it.
1. Please ensure that the computer has ProApps QuickTime Codecs installed, otherwise, the converted files will have audio only without image. The FCP X does not install the ProApps QuickTime Codecs automatically.
2. You shouldn’t move the single MXF video out of the whole MXF whole structure folder, or the MXF video would loss some metadata, such as sound.
Step 2. Click the format bar and choose Final Cut Pro >> Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov) as the output format for FCP X editing.
Step 3. Click the “Settings” icon and you will go into a new interface named “Profile Settings”. You’d better set the video frame rate as 30fps(or 25fps for PAL), video size as 1920*1080 to keep the best quality for editing in Final Cut Pro.
