How do I import .mxf files into Final Cut Pro X? This is the latests and greatests software right? There must be a way. Help Please.

    From what i've been reading, this software seems to be a big step down..

    I posted the same question.  I purchased FCP X (was using Final Cut Express) - I have the Canon XF plug in for Final Cut Pro that came w/ the camera (XF100).  Guess what, FCP X does not have a "log and capture" command that the plug in is suppose to work with.  I am continuing to use the Aunsoft video converter s/w to convert the MXF file to Apple ProRes 422 (takes time to convert).  I am very disappointed.  I am hoping I missed something and the Canon XF plug in will work w/ FCP X.

    Wow. I'm hoping this is a true upgrade. I already turned off my new Final Cut Pro X and went to work on my Avid MC until I see a soulution somewhere. Thanks for posting.

    Maybe this will be of some help.

    No XDCAM cameras listened on there, even though it seems to be able to import XDCAM footage.

    I do not Transcode anything on my Avid. I link to using AMA and go to work. I can't seem to import my .mxf into Final Cut Pro X. Thanks to all who post! FCP does look exciting in many ways. I hope I can use this purchase I made today. Now I have to go to work and come back tomorrow and see the solutions offered. Converting is not a solution! The idea is to speed up the work flow.

    Canon XF MPEG-2; ingest supported with additional software


    Does Anyone know where i get the additional software?

  • Deadly_B Level 1 (0 points)

    Tony, I've checked out the link.  Although I appreciate the gesture, it doesn't help.  It simply tells me I blew $300.  So not cool, Apple.  It wouldn't be so bad if it didn't completely disagree with what Airtimevideo posted from the tech specs.


    And to answer your question, Airtime, I don't think there is any software right now.  I'm not sure what the deal with that spec is, other than a selling point to get us to spend money on software that won't do anything at all for us.

    Downloaded fcpx at the Apple Store believeing it worked natively with " A V C H D "


    FCE and iMovie both recognized my Canon HF S10 AVCHD internal memory and card and would convert the .mts files.


    I just blew $299 and don't have a clue what "Canon XF MPEG-2; ingest supported with additional software"

    means and likewise don't know where to purchase this vaporware neither am I capable at this moment of decrypting XF vs. HF!  What part of AVCHD am I missing here.


    While we're at it, the "missing manual" can only be accessed online. That's great for the Usual Suspect Verizon / Apple / Manual Author / Training Video alleged Guru's and their profit sharing BUT the added Verizon, Missing Manual, Training video's raise the $299 price.


    Caveat Emptor!  Will the Apple Store entertain my request for a refund?

    My guess at the moment is to use FCP 7 to import your mxf files and convert them to a native .mov files and then bring those into FCP x to work on. Do that until they update. That's what I will be doing.




  • woodyfrommidlothian Level 1 (0 points)

    That's what I did. I used FCP 7's Log and Transfer to save the mxf files as XDCAM HD422 .mov files. Then imported them into FCP X.

    This is from Canon.

    We appreciate your continued correspondence regarding .


    I'm sorry to hear that the plugin didn't work. 


    Unfortunately, since Version X is a brand new version, Canon has not

    created a plugin for this version yet.   Unfortunately, I don't have an

    estimate for the arrival of the new version of the plugin.  I regret the

    inconvenience this causes.


    Please let us know if we can be of any further assistance with your



    Thank you for choosing Canon.

    @Robert: That works if you have FCP7.  If you are new to FCP (like me) you are stuck.


    @Airtime (or more directly at Canon's response): It would be nice if you could get support for the products you purchase.  I knew this was coming two months ago.  Apparently Canon wasn't paying attention.


    I don't want to be a "sky is falling" type person.  I want to wait until I get answers.  Unfortunately neither Apple nor Canon appear to have any.  I will wait before asking for a refund, but I will not wait forever.  Somehow I think I wouldn't be able to request a refund after a couple weeks.
