Summary: Trouble importing Canon EOS C500 MXF files into Final Cut Pro X for further editing? Don’t worry. There are two ways for you to get Canon C500 footage into FCP 6/7/X smoothly. Learn how to.

The Canon C500 is a hot professional camcorder for videographers. The C500 utilizes Canon’s XF Codec – a file-based MPEG-2 compression with an MXF File Wrapper that ensures the widest compatibility with existing industry infrastructure, metadata and non-linear editing (NLE) systems. While, it’s a pity we found many users often meet problems if they tried importing Canon C500 MXF to Final Cut Pro. How to solve the issues effectively? In the post I will share two ways to import MXF recordings to FCP 7/X from Canon C500 for further editing on Mac OS X(Mavericks included).

Method A- Using Canon Provided Software
Pros:
- Free
- Supports native MXF importing

Cons:
- Doesn’t work well wtih 50Mbps (CBR) 4:2:2, 1920×1080, (60i/30p/24p)
- With a lot of steps
- May cause errors due to incompatible codecs
- Spends a lot of time
- Occupies a large amount of RAM
- Only available for Canon MXF files

Plug-ins: latest Canon XF Plug-in for Final Cut Pro, Canon XF Utility
This importing way is a tedious process, which needs your patience. If you haven’t installed the above plugin, please download and install them. Click here to free download the latest Canon XF Plug-in for Final Cut Pro.

Part 1. Back up Canon C500 MXF footages with XF Utility:
canon xf plugin
1. Connect your Canon C500 camera to your Mac OS, you also can insert your CF card into your computer.
2. Launching the XF Utility, you will see your CF card showed up as the Canon drive and “Backup” in the upper left corner as the below picture.
3. Click Backup on the upper left corner, Canon C500 MXF footages on the CF card will be backed up with the XF Utility.

PS: Before backing up videos, please make sure you have set the location to store your footage in the Preferences menu.

Part 2. Import the footages to Log and Transfer window:(Here I take FCP 7 as example)
log and transfer mxf files
1. Once your footage is saved with XF Utility, please run Loag and Transfer plugin in Final Cut Pro for rendering.
2. Click on the folder icon in the top left corner of the Log & Transfer window to load Canon C500 recorded HD MXF files you’ve saved.
3. Choose the editing format: Click on the small flower-shaped icon in the top middle of the Log & Transfer window, which will open the Import Preferences panel. You can choose ProRes or natvie format as the editing format.

Tips:
a. In general, you can smoothly edit native MPEG-2 MXF, but FCP is designed to work best in ProRes.
b. By default, Log & Transfer will either convert the footage to ProRes or just re-wrap clips into MOV format.

4. Click OK when you are done, and continue to import your footage by clicking Add Selection to Queue. Now your C500 recording file is in FCP, you can freely editing.

The excellent MXF converting tool has Final Cut Pro native profile with five types of ProRes codecs- ProRes 422, ProRes 422(LT), ProRes 422(HQ), ProRes 422(proxy), ProRes 444. And it allows you freely change the video and audio parameters as you need, of course, it can keep the original quality for editing. I have successfully used it to encode my Canon C500 MXF to ProRes for FCP(X).

Step 1. Launch the best Canon C500 MXF Video Converter for Mac, and add MXF videos to the program by clicking “Add” button.

Step 2. For editing MXF media in FCP smoothly, choose “Final Cut Pro> Apple PreRes 422″ as the output format.
Tip: If need, you can click “Settings” to freely change the video and audio settings. To keep the best quality for editing, you’d better keep your original settings. For example, if your resource file is 1080 29.97p or 59.94i, you’d better select the video size as 1920*1080 and frame rate as 29.97fps.

Step 3. Tap “Convert” button on the main interface to start transcoding Canon C500 MXF to Final Cut Pro 7/X on Mac OS X.

Once the MXF to ProRes Conversion is done, you can click Open button to find the converted video files. Now you are free to import/edit C500 MXF files in Final Cut Pro under Mac OS without problems.

Editor’s Note: The first Method is a free work for all Canon users and it can make FCP edit the native MXF videos. If you think it is a tiring work or your computer doesn’t support pulgins well, I believe the second way can easily solve the incompatible troubles.
