    Sorry bud,
    There is no support for Canon Pro Cameras in Final Cut Pro X Canon and other Pro Camera MFRs are only willing too support The Prior version of Final Cut Studio ( Final Cut Pro 7 ). This Canon MXF to FCP Converter can help you convert the XF305 MXF video into ProRes 422, otherwise you are stuck for the time being.

    You software is the fastest converter that I’ve tried and I’ve tried several over the years. The output quality is better than the others and the mp4 “compliance” is better, that is, your product complies with mp4 standards well whereas some other converters do not. File size: Just a note: HD Video Converter does a great job reducing the file size (almost 1/3!) while maintaining sufficient video quality – I hardly notice the difference between the source and output files! Thanks. I can get many output foramt from the MXF to FCP Converter.

    Thanks so much ….wondering if you have come across a problem like the one i am experiencing. I have FCP7 and downloaded the plugin for the Canon XF300. When I open FCP and go to log and transfer, I can see the clips listed but there are no thumbnails. When I try to add the clip to the queue to import, it ultimately fails. I have spoken to Canon at great length and they say that the plugin installed correctly and that the problem must be in FCP, probably a setting. I am only learning this so that I can help my editor by organizing footage before hand, so I don’t know what setting I should be looking at to try to change……this is so frustrating as I have shot a lot and can’t work with the footage…any thoughts
