Preserve and Separate Multiple Audio Tracks in Canon XF300 MXF for FCP 7

I am editing my wedding footage and have been given a small amount of footage in .mxf files from the xf300 camera and I was wondering how to get them into Final Cut Pro 7 so that I can edit them with the rest of the footage. Log and Transfer doesn’t work like usual .mxf footage as when I try to add the files it says “”xf300_ceremony” contains unsupported media or has an invalid directory structure. Please choose a folder whose directory structure matches supported media.” I tried to download the plug-in for xf300 but that doesn’t seem to make any difference. What can I do to get theses files in?

When you import the MXF footage and says it’s an unrecognizable format. In fact, the MXF files are showing up light/faded like my computer doesn’t even really recognize them.

As we all know, for the compatibility issue, many MXF Camcorder users have the experiences with Plug-in or MXF converter. From googling, we found many users often met some problems if they tried importing Canon XF MXF clips to Final Cut Pro 7, and they wanted to get a way to help them to solve the troubles. In the post I will share free or paid tools to imput Canon XF MXF recordings to FCP X for further editing on Mac OS X.

There is a third party piece of software that you might try if the Canon XF plugin cannot be installed or does not work properly with some .mxf clips (which is common). Pavtube iMixMXF, the best MXF Converter for Mac supports more MXF file types.
