Canon XF300 and Avid Workflow- Convert/Import XF300 MXF files to Media Composer

Summary: From this article below, you can learn the best way to import Canon XF300 MXF footage into Avid Media Composer on Mac by transcoding the Canon MXF to DNxHD for Avid MC.

The XF300 Professional Camcorder represents Canon's entry into professional solid state video acquisition. It supports MPEG-2 4:2:2 codec--to record Full HD video (MXF) to affordable Compact Flash cards. In this article, we aim to share some tips and tricks to solve the Canon XF300 workflow on Mac like how to import Canon XF300 MXF to Avid Media Composer under Mac OS X smoothly. If you met any Canon MXF to Avid MC importing/editing issues like the below user had, go through the page to find the solution.

Q1: I've been working Avid for years... always worked well and happened pretty fast. But I have an hour-long clip (an interview) shot with my new Canon XF300, and it's taking forever to import into Avid (v.6.2). A bit more info, in case it pertains:

Q2: I first exported the clip from Canon XF300 CF card to a hard drive (on my MacBook Pro). The export happens very quickly, but the import of this clip into Avid doesn't seem to want to happen. Any easy fix to import Canon XF300 files into Avid MC?

What caused the problems? As we know, actually MPEG-2 4:2:2 codec and MXF format cannot be natively imported by many professional video editing application including the Avid Media Composer. So, it will be a bit hard when importing Canon XF video footage with Avid MC. While, things can be different if you get some help from third-party software Brorsoft MXF Converter for Mac.

Overall, the program is a professional yet easy-to-use MXF Converter on Mac OS X, which can not only convert Canon XF300 MXF files to DNxHD codec videos for Mac editing, but also provides simple video editing functions for you.

    1, perhaps, fate like the season on the track from the clutch of reincarnation, in the parting of the ferry,Yang Liu Yiyi, then dance a willow leaves, no words, no absence,Just walk up and down that back in the evening sun, it was to become a degree from the War.Although at one corner, there is no long and arduous journey, but a few narrow streets, the rush of the day,But worth thousands of miles, lie among us, we are like two tiny trees grow on the other side,Day and night keep looking, keep looking at the years of vast, keep looking at each other growing old face,We are always looking forward, looking forward to once again concerned with his fate, hoping reunion.2, the gentle spring breeze, blowing open
