"My problem is that I copied 2,000 Canon XF 300 files to hard drives from the flash cards. I did not go through the XF Utility. What software will see these files? Or what conversion should I do to then be able to see these files? I am using a PC with Windows 7 64 Bit. I have Camtasia Studio for Editing and Adobe Premiere. I can buy something else, if needed. What software is best? I am filming a documentary, and I am on Day 61 of 166 days. I SO APPRECIATE your help.”
MXF format is not a common video format, so Adobe premiere and Camtasia Studio can’t recognize your XF300 MXF files.

Here you can try Pavtube MXF converter, which is a professional MXF converter that can convert MXF to Camtasia Studio and premiere. The output formats are shown below.
