How to import/edit MXF files in Final Cut Pro 6/7?

Below are several disscussions about looking for the way importing MXF files to

theFinal Cut Pro (6 or 7):

Q1: MXF files into FCP 6
I'm interested in the new Canon XF300 camera, but I'm still working on an Apple G5

with FCP 6.0.6. Is there an application, plug-in, etc. for the older FCP to take in

MXF files?[G5, Mac OS X (10.4.11)]

Q2:importing .MXF files to Final Cut
What plug-in do I need to install so i can import and edit .MXF video files in

Final Cut. The suggestion of doing Log and Transfer doesn't work (the .MXF files

are gray out not allowing me to select it.)[Final Cut Pro 7, Mac OS X (10.5.8)]

Q3:Support for Canon MXF from xf100 in FCP?
How do I import .mxf files into Final Cut Pro? This is the latests and greatests

software right? There must be a way. Help Please.

Here many folks are talking about how toimport MXF files into Final Cut Pro 6 or 7

for editing without rendering time. Well, don't blame to the Final Cut Pro X, the

"Import from Camera…" option works just like "Log and Transfer". The thing is,

even FCP 7 does not work with the Canon or Panasonic P2MXF codec. As far as i know,

to solve those problems, the most important piece of the equation is that

transcoding MXF files to Final Cut Pro native formats(e.g. Apple ProRes encoded mov

format) along with some help from the third-party software. To help those who wanna

edit MXF files in Final Cut Pro, here I share with you a simple guide on how to

[/font][/size]convert MXF files to Apple ProRes MOV format and then log and

transfer MXF files to FCP for editing flawlessly.

Required Software:

Step 1. Import MXF files to the top Mac MXF to FCP ProRes Converter

(Before conversion, you need to transfer MXF files from your camcorder or camera to

Mac Hard Drive, then click the "add" button to browse to import MXF videos)

Step 2.Click the format bar, and move mouse cursor to "Final Cut Pro > Apple ProRes

422 (*.mov)" as output format.

Step 3.Click "Convert" button to start transcoding the Canon or Panasonic P2 mxf

The best format for importing into FCP is Apple ProRes, if you can't directly import/edit MXF files in Final Cut Pro 6/7, you can transcode the MXF files to Prores. For converter, I recommend Aunsoft TransMXF because it offers special formats ProRes 422 MOV for editting MXF videos in FCP.

first , you should know that mxf can't be imported into FCP . Because this mxf format can't be supported by the FCP and also can't be played directly. All you gonna need is find yourself an video converter app. And convert your mxf videos into Prores format, this format is render fast and convert fast. Just google pavtubemxf converter , mac solution . You can have a try. Hope this can help you.
