When it comes to professional videography, 4K is quickly becoming standard. If you’re in the market for a compact, portable and lightweight professional video camera that shoots 4K internally, and offers 12 Megapixel digital still photography, then the Canon XC10 may be for you. 

Q: Import XC10 4K MXF Videos in Mac iMovie ? 
"I have not been successful in having iMovie recognize my XC10 when connected with its USB cable. It doesn't know that the camera is attached, even though the computer knows, and thus will not import videos. I've tried all of the USB settings in the camera. 

Can someone give me specific instructions for importing Canon XC10 videos via iMovie?" 


If you encounter any problems importing Canon XC10 4K video to iMovie, we would recommend transcoding them to a format that is best suitable for use in iMovie, such as Apple’s InterMediate Codec, iMovie’s favorite editing codec, which iMovie will recognize and handle well.

A quick guide on how to transcode Canon XC10 MXF 4K video to AIC .mov for iMovie 

Step 1: Add 4K videos 

Install and launch the 4K to iMovie Converter, and then click "Add Files" button to import your 4K mxf from Canon XC10 to the software. 


Step 2: Choose output format 

Click the Format column to select output format "iMovie and Final Cut Express > Apple Intermediate Codec(AIC) (*.mov)" as the best compatible video format for editing 4K in iMovie. 


Tip: Advanced Settings You can click the “Settings” button and customize proper video/audio parameters if necessary. Video size, bitrate and fame rate are flexible and can be adjusted as you like. As far as I know iMovie like many editors use 1080p as primary delivery format, so 1080p would be the best settings. You can downscale 4K to 1080p by adjusting the video resolution. 


Step 3: Start XC10 4K video to AIC .mov conversion 

Hit the convert button to start transcoding Canon XC10 4K MXF to iMovie on Mac OS X(Yosemite/El Capitan included). After the conversion, click Open to get the output videos. Launch iMovie and start your project.
