How to Transcode HD Video MXF to Apple ProRes 422/4444 with A/V sync for FCP X on Mac?

Question 1:
“We are using FCP X, and as far as I know it does not read Canon XF305 files natively. We tried Canon XF utility, with very limited success, on few different machines. Main problem with that piece of software is that it expects to see compact flash cards straight from the camera and doesn’t seem to work very well with folders on an HDD. Is there a recommended workflow for us to move MXF files from an HDD to FCP X?”

Answer: It is strongly suggested to convert MXF clips to Apple ProRes 422 using UFUSoft HD Converter for Mac software, because FCP X needs to have all the footage on a timeline in the single codec, otherwise it needs to render everything and does not preview clips in realtime. You can find a free trial version.

Question 2:
“I especially get confused when I need to download the plug-ins from the Canon site, which is a real mess! I have MXF footage shot on the Canon C300 and I’m trying to convert it from true 24p to ProRes 422(HQ) 23.976. Does anyone know an easy-to-use converter to do this?”

Answer: UFUSoft HD Video Converter for Mac will shed you some light on this problem. More than encoding true 24p C300 MXF files to ProRes 422(HQ) 23.976, it can also rewrap MXF to PrpRes 422, ProRes LT, ProRes Proxy, and ProRes 4444 for different FCP use.

2. Click “Edit” button, you can trim, crop the video, or add watermark and adjust effect to the videos which you will convert.

3. If you want to edit MXF files in iMovie or FCE, you just need to choose the “iMovie and Final Cut Express > Apple InterMediate Codec (AIC) (*.mov)” in the step 2.

“I have read a lot on FCP X and video editing but my knowledge is only theoretical as at date. I would like to start by creating 15 to 30 minutes HD videos. I will be shooting on a Canon 7D DSLR and a Panasonic HC-X920 and my Mac configurations are as follows:

iMac 21.5″ – Processor: 2.5Ghz Intel Core i5 – Memory: 8GB 1333 Mhz DDR3 – Graphics: AMD Radeon HD 6750M 512MB – HDD: 500GB Sata

but I always encounter problems when I trying to import these HD video recordings to FCP X directly, it seems that i can not load and transfer such HD videos to Final Cut Pro X, can you help me import the hd videos to FCP X”

Many users have encountered problems when importing HD videos like HD MKV, MOV, MXF, XAVC, MTS, M2TS, M2T, TS, MOD, TOD, TiVo, M4V, MP4, AVI, MPG, VOB, WMV, ASF, 3GP, FLV, F4V, etc to FCP X for editing on Mac, the main reason is that some HD video format is not supported to import to FCP X directly and natively, because Final Cut Pro X best supported video codec is Apple ProRes codec MOV format, so you can’t import HD videos to FCP X directly. Maybe you are looking for a plugin for importing to FCP X, but it is not easy to find a good plugin that works for latest cameras and camcorders, since there are many kinds of video codes used by these recording devices, you’d better find a better way to import HD videos to Final Cut Pro X without plugins.

HD Video to ProRes 422/ProRes 4444 for Final Cut Pro X

ProRes 422 HQ: This is the highest-quality video format, but unless you are shooting very carefully-lit, high-end video, such as RED, HDCAM, or HDCAM SR, the quality of your source image doesn’t equal the format. Use this version only for high-end work.

ProRes 422 (Recommended): This is the format I recommend for anyone shooting DSLR, HDV, AVCHD, XDCAM EX, XDCAM HD, AVCAM, or P2. Great image quality, with file sizes 30-35% smaller than ProRes 422 HQ. Since the DSLR images start as H.264, which is already quite compressed, ProRes 422 most closely matches the original image quality.

ProRes 422 LT: This is the format to use if you have tons of footage, need to edit using smaller (i.e. less storage space) hard drives, or are going to go thru an off-line to on-line process.

ProRes 422 Proxy: This format should only be used when file size is more important than image quality. Training files, library archive files, or other reference media are a good choice for this format.

ProRes 4444 is another lossy video compression format for use in post production. It shares many features with other codecs of Apple’s ProRes family but provides better quality than its predecessors, particularly in the area of color. If you hope to retain the maximum possible quality of your HD videos, the Apple ProRes 4444 (*.mov) is the ideal format.

Step 3: Start HD videos to Final Cut Pro X conversion by clicking on “Convert” button. Based on its multi-threading technology and advanced video/audio sync technology, you will get the converted ProRes 422/ProRes 4444 .mov files in perfect sync of video and audio with super fast speed.
