"I have taken my brother's wedding occeasion by Canon EOS C100 Mark II. It's wonderful. I need to edit it in FCP X and give it to my brother as the gift as soon as possible. But I aways get error while imputing. It's really frustrating. Could you pls help me? Thank you!"

If we want to import the AVCHD videos from Canon EOS C100 or Canon C100 MK II to Final Cut Pro 7 or FCP for editing the movies, you may find the high quality AVCHD MTSfiles are not recognized by FCP. So what's the available workflow for C100/C100 ii and FCP?

The problem lies in that FCP, including FCP 6/7 and FCP X, cannot support the native AVCHD footages from Canon XA10. In order to transfer MTS files from the XA10 to FCP 7, you need to transcode the MTS files to ProRes 422, FCP compatible video format. Or you will find the .mts files greyed out in the STREAM folder. Actually, the Log & Transfer is such a kind of converting tool, thus you can sometimes get AVCHD files into FCP via L&T window. But the L&T is not so powerful enough to recognize all the AVCHD clips. So if the L&T can not recognize the recordings from Canon XA10, you need to find a more versatile and professional AVCHD to FCP Converter to convert AVCHD to ProRes 422 for FCP 7.

What to do if Canon XF Plugin not working with Final Cut Pro on Mac OS X

January 12 2017 , Written by sophializhu Published on #Canon XF Plugin not working with Final Cut Pro, #convert canon xf mxf files to fcp, #canon xf plugin importing problems with fcp

Any user who still can't edit Canon XF MXF files in FCP like Final Cut Pro 5/6/7, or Final Cut Pro X on Mac OS X 10.12 macOS Sierra, 10.11 El Capitan, 10.10 Yosemite, 10.9 Mavericks, 10.8 Mountain Lion, 10.7 Lion, 10.6 Snow Leopard, 10.5 Leopard, please keep reading here and get the best Solution.

Canon XF100 to FCP 7-“Hi, I am about to begin editing a film shot on Canon XF100. I have a hard-drive onto which all of the raw files were dumped, and am now trying to find a way of working with the files. As far as I can make out everything was copied as it should be (i.e. with the directory structure intact):


I have installed the Canon XF plugin for FCP. Problems arise when I try to use Log & Transfer to transcode the MXF material. I have tried Native/Pro Res 422/ ProRes LT/in fact all of the options from the drop down destination menu, and keep getting the same problem: namely, that about 80-90 percent of files are only transcoded in part. What I mean is that a 5 minute clip ends up as only 10 seconds. I have FCP 7.0.3 and the relevant Canon XF plugins…Now I’m at a loss as to what to do… Anyone have any suggestions as to how I can start editing this film on FCP?”

Answer: It seems that Canon XF plugin for FCP somehow messed up when rendering the MXF media for use in Final Cut Pro 7. We heard people have troubles with EOS plugin of similar nature. Can we L&T footage without utilizing Canon plugin? Actually, there are a large number of Canon MXF to FCP converter programs claiming to be good at transcoding MXF media files to ProRes 422 for FCP. The thing is that it’s difficult to make audio and video always in sync in the generated ProRes MOV files. As for video and audio synchronization, Pavtube Canon MXF Converter does a good job. So, it’s wise to use this software for MXF to FCP ProRes codec conversion.




Brorsoft MXF Converter for Mac can transcode Canon XF MXF files to ProRes ensuring maximum editing quality and efficiency when working with Final Cut Pro. What's more, it's also a good camcorder assistant for Panasonic P2 camcorders and some of Sony XDCAM camcorder users, adopt advanced audio and video sync technology. Overall, this Mac MXF converter is good at converting MXF to proper codec for NLE on Mac, such as Apple ProRes, Avid DNxHD, Apple InterMediate Codec, DVCPRO, MPEG-2, etc. for editing in Final Cut Pro, Avid Media Composer, iMovie, FCE, Adobe Premiere Pro, After Effects CS6 and more.

Download MXF to Final Cut Pro Converter:

Step 1: Add MXF footage

Launch the program and click "Add " button to import the MXF files to the top MXF to ProRes Converter Mac. Batch conversion is supported.

Note: To convert MXF video you need to transfer the whole MXF file structure to Mac HDD, because MXF systems produce split-file A/V (that is, the video and audio stored in separate files). And this MXF converting software will find corresponding audio content by itself and mix it to video during conversion.



Step 2: Select output format for FCP

Click on the "Format" bar and get the dropdown menu, then move your pointer to choose "Final Cut Pro> Apple PreRes 422" or "Apple ProRes 422 HQ" or "Apple ProRes 4444" as the output format.



Tips: If you want to set some parameters for the output profile, you could click the "Settings" button to set the output bitrate, encode, frame rate, resolution, sample rate, channels, etc.

Step 3: Start the MXF to MOV conversion on Mac

Once the conversion completes, you can click "Open" to find the .MOV videos which can be directly imported to FCP. As you see, now you can import and edit MXF clips in Final Cut Pro 6/7/X without problems.

Additional Tips:
If you want to edit MXF media in Adobe Premiere Pro, please choose the " Adobe Premiere/Sony Vegas --> MPEG-2(*.mpg) " as output; For iMovie or FCE 4, choose the "iMovie and Final Cut Express -> Apple InterMediate Codec (AIC) (*.mov)". For Avid MC, choose "Avid Media Composer > Avid DNxHD(*.mov)".
