Convert Canon Sony and Panasonic MXF to Eidting Software

Fix: MXF to FCPX not working- Best way to import Canon MXF to Final Cut Pro X

I have exactly this issue…something weird happening with my C300 footage. I’m running FCP X 10.3.1 on OSX 10.9.5 and suddenly my C300 footage shot at 24p drops off the viewer and timeline viewer screens. I can see it in the browser screen to the left, but that’s all. Seems to work for 10-20 minutes on restart, but then drops out again. I’ve never had this problem before and I’ve been accessing the C300 footage successfully through XF utility since the start of the year. This is the first time I’ve shot at 24p, though it seems unlikely that’s connected.

From googling, we found many users often met some problems if they tried importing Canon C300 movies to Final Cut Pro X , and they wanted to get a way to help them to solve the troubles. We konw two ways to imput Canon C300 recordings to FCP X for further editing on Mac OS X.(Also support Canon XF100, XF105, XF300, XF305, C500 1080p 50Mbps MXF).
