Summary: In this tutorial, you will learn how to import MXF footage from Canon C300 to Final Cut Pro (X), Avid, iMovie, Premiere for further editing without problems.

With every new Camera, comes many new questions about workflow. The term 'workflow' can be fairly broad, but today I am looking at importing Canon C300 footage into various non-linear editing systems. Due to format compatibility issues, Canon C300 owners are always having troubles importing C300 MXF footage to Avid Media Composer, Final Cut Pro (X), iMovie, Premiere and more for native editing.

To achieve your goal flawlessly, the best method here is to transcode Canon MXF files to FCP/Avid/iMovie/Premiere native editable format along with some help from a third-party tool. After that you can open C300 footage in your video editor for further editing. Keep reading for a brief how-to below.
