Make Canon C300 MXF Compatible with Final Cut Pro 6/7/X

The Canon EOS C300 supports the highest HD quality with Full HD 1920×1080 resolution with Canon XF codec, up to 50Mbps bit rate and 4:2:2 color sampling.Utilizing file-based MPEG-2 compression with an MXF File Wrapper ensures the widest compatibility with existing industry infrastructure, metadata and non-linear editing (NLE) systems. After shooting some footage on the Canon EOS C300, you may want to edit them in Final Cut Pro 6/7 or Final Cut Pro X. However, you may also face the problem that FCP 6/7 or FCP X does not recognize the .mxf videos.
