Sorry to hear that many guys are having difficulty importing clips from the EOS C300 into Final Cut Pro. I would like to import multiple C300 MXF to Apple ProRes so that I can edit in Final Cut Pro 6 and Final Cut Pro 7.Here I share a step by step procedure .
Firstly, you can download the most intuitive C300 converter MXF footage to FCP7. As we know, Canon every clip is in a separate folder, which brings inconvenience to import MXF to conversion tool. The C300 MXF to FCP 7 converter can load MXF clips from different folders at once. The workflow is really easy. You just need to take separate folders as sub-folders, which are included in a parent folder, and then you can directly load the parent folder so that the MXF file will be loaded into the Pro at once. If you don't want all MXF files from CF card, you can also drag and drop what you need to the program.
Below is a simple tutorial to convert multiple C300 MXF to ProRes MOV. (C300 MXF to multi track MOV conversion is supported)
Step 1: Load MXF from separate folder
From below screenshot, you can see MXF files are in 2 folders. One is "mxf" and the other is "P2-dvcpro25". Both of them are in folder "VideoBackup".
You can select to add from folder "VideoBackup" instead of adding seperate folders one by one.
Step2: choose the output format
Click the "format" and choose the "Multi-track Video -> Multi-track Apple ProPres 422(*.mov)" files as the output format.
Step3: Set multi-task settings
Click "settings" to preserve separate audio tracks in original MXF. The screenshot shows 4 tracks of audio, if your source MXF with 2 tracks, you will get 2 channels here. You have more choices, if you don’t want to keep all audio tracks, you can uncheck undesired ones. And you also can mix multi-audio tracks into individual track.
Step4: Convert MXF files into multiple track MOV for FCP 7
Click "Start Conversion" icon, the TransMXF Pro for Mac will transcode Canon multiple MXF to ProRes MOV for FCP7 at once.
