Why I can’t load .mxf footage from Canon EOS C700 to Final Cut Pro X on Mac? Which format is the best editing format for FCP X? We will share the best slution with you, let you edit, play and share Canon EOS C700 video freely.
The new Canon Cinema EOS C700 was built for every type of video production. The EOS C700 has both internal 4K ProRes and XF-AVC recording. You’re free to choose a format to capture your stunning videos. But the problem is that when users working Canon C700 XF-AVC recording in FCP X, the incompatible problem occured: Apple’s Final Cut won’t read and ingest the XF-AVC .mxf footage.
Although Canon provides Canon XF Utility of XF-AVC to make FCP recognize and ingest C700 MXF files. While, the fact is that the importing way with Canon XF Utility is a tedious process, which needs users patience. Most users finally gave up and looked for other alternative ways on Google.
