Can't import C300 II 4K/HD MXF files into After Effects CC? Solved!

This article I will concentrate on how to import Canon C300 II to After Effects CC on macOS Sierra/El Capitan. If you are planning to add some MXF clips to Adobe AE for further editing, just read on.

Question:Importing C300 MK II MXF to AE?
"Is it possible to import the 4k MXF files directly from my Canon C300 Mark II into After Effects? Or do I have to import them with a 3rd party program such as Premiere or Avid and then import them into After Effects?
The reason I ask is I now have my footage in Avid and I can't export the 1080i, 60fps information out of Avid, it only exports as 29.97fps.
Any help would be awesome. Thanks!"
