Rewrap MXF to ProRes from C300 to Final Cut Pro 7/FCP X(Yosemite)

If you are troubled in importing and editing Canon EOS C300 MXF videos to Final Cut , here's the solution.

Canon EOS C300 is an old but still popular professional HD camcorder. It adopts the industry-standard MPEG-2 Long GOP 4:2:2 Codec (Canon XF Codec, MXF), unleashing the power of Super 35mm CMOS sensor and HD video lens. Supporting a maximum recording bit rate of 50Mbps, C300 delivers professional film-standard quality in a compact size. Also, 4:2:2 color sampling offers twice the volume of color data, doubling the level of color resolution., minimizing jagged edges to ensure ample quality for chroma key composition and color corrections.

However, using .mxf footage on Mac is a big problem for people that are not familiar with the MXF format. All right, you don’t really need to figure it out. Just learn one thing- .mxf format is not compatible with Final Cut Pro 6, Final Cut Pro 7 or FCP X. To import MXF files to FCP for editing smoohtly, the easy workaround is to transcode MXF files to Apple ProRes, which is a standard-definition and high-definition lossy video compression format developed by Apple. The following guide shares with you the way converting MXF videos from Canon EOS C300 to ProRes 422, ProRes 422 HQ or 4444 encoded MOV files, so as to import the MXF footage to Final Cut Pro 6/7 or FCP X for further editing.

First of all, free download Brorsoft MXF Converter for Mac

(Note: Click here for OS X 10.5)

With the software, you can convert C300 MXF files to ProRes 422 ensuring maximum editing quality and efficiency when working with Final Cut Pro 7 or FCP X. I like the batch processing and joining of multiple mxf videos into one file. The editing feature to trim the recorded videos is great, as I can control the content for conversion. What’s more, it also allows you to transcode MXF from Canon XF100, XF105, XF300, or Panasonic P2 or Sony XDCAM MXF clips to Final Cut Pro, iMovie, Avid MC, Adobe Premiere Pro.

Convert Canon C300 .mxf footage for editing in Final Cut Pro 7/FCP X

First of all, download, install and launch C300 MXF Converter Mac, and import MXF files into the program

Note: Before conversion, you need to transfer MXF files from your Canon C300 to Mac Hard Drive, then click the "add files" button to browse to import MXF videos.

Then, click the format bar, and move mouse cursor to "Final Cut Pro > Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov)" as output format. It’s the optimal choice for using in Final Cut Pro.

Afterwards, you can click "Properties" to adjust the audio stream ID if you find the C300 MXF no sound. Besides, you can click "Settings" button to adjust the resolution, bitrate, etc. Just customize the parameters to meet your need. 1920*1080 vide size; 30fps frame rate are the recommended settings.

Finally, click "Convert" button and your C300 MXF files will be converted into ProRes .MOV files ready to be imported into FCP without any issue.
