Mountain Lion 10.8.2.
Final Cut Pro X
Many threads seem to point to needing a converter for these files before FCP X will read them.
I've seen a thread or two more recently where someone suggests FCP X will import MXF files directly with no conversion needed. I would like that, but can't seem to verify it works with my scenario. It sure doesn't seem to for me.
Canon has drivers and sofware on their site for the Lion OS, but nothing listed for Mountain Lion, leaving me to believe the drivers are not yet available or not necessary.
When I try importing my footage directly from the camera in the File/Import/Media... screen, FCP X tells me:
"No Importable Files"
"None of the selected files or folders can be imported."
So, can MXF files be imported directly into FCP X or not? If so, what am I missing?
Plug-in for FCPX to import MXF files directly (whilst it's from the C300 page, I hired an XF305 and successfully imported the clips using this plug-in):
That should be an end to this discussion, no?
