How to Convert Panasonic MXF files to Quicktimes editing for Final Cut Pro 7?

Does anyone know the easiest way to convert MXF files, shot with a Panasonic AG-HPX170P, into Quicktime files for editing in FCP7? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

FCP 7 was discontinued several years ago…and many of its plugins, stopped all forward progress then. If you plan on using MXF files in FCP 7,you might need to do format conversion. You convert MXF files to ProRes first, and then you can get the converted footage onto timeline for easy editing.
1. When converting MXF footage using Final Cut Pro oriented format templates (e.g. Apple ProRes), please ensure that your computer has Final Cut Pro installed, otherwise the converted files will have audio only without image.
2. If you are using FCP X, please make sure you have installed ProApps QuickTime Codecs, or you may get files with sound only without video.
