Import Canon MXF to FCP X: No Importable Files
“Hi all, I’m trying to import MXF files shot on Canon XF100 to FCP X from an external hard drive. Unfortunately, I’m getting a ‘No importable files’ message saying ‘None of the selected files or folders can be imported. Change the selection and try again.’

I have installed the Canon XF Plugin. Is there anything I can do to solve the issue? Please suggest a solution if you know. Thanks in advance.”

It sounds like you got the bare MXF files and not the full folder structure created by the camera. Get the whole folder structure and FCP X will import the media in a heartbeat. No folder structure, no import. If for any reason you’ve lost the complete folder structure, you will need to transcode them to ProRes first. Here is a guide telling you how to do this.

Step 2: Select ‘Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov)’ as output format for opening with FCP X
From the ‘Profile’ menu, move to ‘Final Cut Pro’ catalogue, and select ‘Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov)’ as target format. Apple ProRes is the best suited editing code for FCP X. When loading them into FCP, you needn’t wait for a long time for rendering.
Important: If you’ve loaded a number of video clips to do batch conversion, please do remember ticking off ‘Apply to All’ option before you start.

Step 4: Start transcoding MXF clips to Apple ProRes for FCP X
When ready, click ‘Convert’ to transcode MXF video to Apple ProRes for using with FCP X. You can tick off ‘Shut down computer when conversion completed’ and go away to do other things.

Step 5: Click ‘Open Folder’ button to locate exported ProRes files
As soon as the conversion process finished, simply click ‘Open Folder’ button to get the generated Apple ProRes files. Now you are able to open them in Final Cut X for further editing without any hassles.
