Why can’t Import PMW-300 MXF to FCP 6/7?

Question: ‘Hi, I am using a FCP 7 Studio. I recently bought a Sony PMW 300K1 camcorder. The MXF files coming out of this camera are not recognized by FCP 7. Is there a way to handle this without converting the files? Is it possible to edit MXF files on FCP X directly?’

Answer: If you want to edit Sony PMW-300 MXF footage in FCP X, you will need to use the Sony XDCAM Transfer Utility to rewrap the PMW-300 XDCAM MXF into QuickTimes files. However, due to different computer environments, this would not always work as expected. In this case, you will need to convert Sony PMW-300 XDCAM MXF to Apple ProRes for FCP as we should know the best supported video formats fot FCP.

Due to the causes we metioned above, is there any good solutions we can take as the good reference? Fortunatedly, we still have the professional MXF to FCP converter called Pavtube MXF Converter for Mac, which is a converter program designed for transcoding HD media, including camera and camcorder videos files to whatever format you need with best video and audio synchronization. With this little tool, you are able to convert some incompatible codec videos to FCP for editing, such as XAVCMKV, etc.

How to transcode Sony PMW-300 XDCAM MXF files for editing with FCP 6/7?
Step 1. Launch the program and click the "Add" button to load PMW-300 .MXF files for converting.

Step 2. Click on the “Format” and you will get a dropdown menu and then select Final Cut Pro > Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov), which is the best format for Final Cut Pro.

Step 3. (Optional)Click “Settings” to set video resolution (1920×1080/1440×1080/1280×720/720×480), bitrate(from 1Mbps to 20Mbps), frame rate (24p/30p) as you like. To deinterlace, crop, trim XDCAM HD MXF video, click “Edit” menu.

Finally after above settings, hit “Convert” button to start transcoding Sony PMW-300 MXF to ProRes for directly importing to FCP 6/7. Additionally, here is also the guide on how to transfer files into FCP 6/7 for editing yu can read more.

Notes: If you wanna convert your MXFfiles with multiple audios preserved, why not take this iMixMXF as a try?
