Are you a Mac Mountain Lion 10.8 user? Having troubles when taking Canon MXF files to FCP X or FCP 7? As Apple Inc.’s desktop and server operating system for Macintosh computers, OS X Mountain Lion (version 10.8) is the ninth major release of OS X. It’s quick, familiar, cheap, and drenched in iOS goodness. However, after updated and installed Mountain Lion on Mac, many Final Cut Pro (mainly FCP X and FCP 7) users found they could not import any MXF files into FCP anymore.

Q1: I use FCP 7 and my MXF file from Canon XF100 is shown as a package, not a folder. I tried to log and transfer the it to FCP but it did not work. I think FCP does not find the files. I also tryed to click myself to the files by right clicking the file and then opening the package with “show package contents”. Once I clicked myself to the actual .mts file I tried to drag it into the log and transfer window in FCP. But this did not work – I’m using OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion.

Q2: When I try importing my footage directly from the camera in the File/Import/Media... screen, FCP X tells me: "No Importable Files", "None of the selected files or folders can be imported." So, can MXF files be imported directly into FCP X or not? If so, what am I missing? I'm using Mac OS V10.8.

Q3: Help Please. I could't Log and Transfer my MXF clips from Canon C300 to FCP 7 after I installed mountain lion. Thank you very much.

If you have met the similar errors, you'd better go to Canon webesite and free download a Canon XF Utility for Mac OS X v10.8 Mountain Lion to import your files to your computer and then access them from FCP. It took Canon forever to release an OS 10.8 update, but they did late last fall. If the pugin doesn't work for your FCP or videos, I advice you'd better transcode MXF to ProRes if you want a quick and easy importing workflow.

There are many apps for converting MXF files to ProRes mov for Mac Lion. You can go to Google and download a top one who can do the conversion with original video quality. I’m currently using Brorsoft MXF Converter for Mac, which can be used as professional MXF to FCP Converter on Mac OS X Leopard (10.5), Snow Leopard (10.6), Lion (10.7), Mountain Lion (10.8). I usually convert my files into apple prores 422(HQ) for working with fcp with original quality. Besides this, I also can change MXF to ProRes 4444, ProRes 422, ProRes 422 (LT), ProRes 422 (Proxy) and other video formats as you want. In fact, I tried several otheres but liked the brorsoft the best.

The software is easy-to-use, it works like most other Converters I’ve used. Drag and drop the .mxf files into it, choose one ProRes codec as output profile, just follow: Format > Final Cut Pro > Apple ProRes 422(HQ) (*.mov), and then start the conversion.

After the conversion, you can click “open” to find the conveted video. Then run your Final Cut Pro, click “File >Import >Filles” to directly get converted file to FCP without rendering. You also can directly drag and drop the generated file to FCP.
