XDCAM MXF to ProRes - Import/Transfer Sony XDCAM MXF to Final Cut Pro X, FCP 7/6

Below, I outline how to import Sony XDCAM MXF footage into Final Cut Pro with ProRes 422, ProRes 422 HQ or 4444 mov format. Keeping reading for the brief how-to process.

XDCAM (SD) records MXF file-based media to an optical disc format. XDCAM HD extends XDCAM to include HD video. XDCAM EX adds full-resolution 1920 x 1080 or 1280 x 720 modes and ExpressCard-based recording.

XDCAM and XDCAM HD video and audio content is stored on disc within MXF container files, and XDCAM EX video and audio content is stored on disc within MP4 container files. Much like QuickTime movie files, MXF and MP4 files can store video and audio data in almost any frame rate and codec, as well as metadata about the content, such as the date of recording, GPS positioning data, and so on.

However, Final Cut Pro can't edit MXF videos shooting from DSLR camcorders such as Panasonic P2 camcorder, Canon XF camcorder, Sony XDCAM camcorder etc. If you need to edit Sony XDCAM .MXF files in Final Cut Pro X, FCP 7/6, you should transcode MXF format to FCP best compatible files, and among all the supported video formats, Apple ProRes seems to be the best one due to the great video quality but small size.

Brorsoft MXF Converter for Mac, which is an easy-to-use yet professional MXF to FCP ProRes converter that can ensure maximum editing quality and efficiency when working with Final Cut Pro.Compared with other similar MXF converters, this software could provide users with the best output video for FCP, iMovie, FCE, Avid MC, Adobe Premiere, etc with the least quality loss and the conversion moved at a very impressive rate. Also the intuitive interface makes the MXF footage on Mac conversion quite simple. It also has an equivalent Windows version named MXF Converter that helps you convert MXF videos on your Windows PC.

Download MXF to Final Cut Pro Converter:

( Note: Click here for OS X 10.5)

How to Transcode Sony XDCAM MXF/IMXF files to ProRes 422 For Final Cut Pro

Step 1. Add Source Videos

Launch the professional Sony MXF Converter Mac, and then click "Add video" button to browse and load your source files. If you need to import an entire file folder directly, simply click "Add from folder" tab.

Step 2. Choose Output format

Go to "Format" menu and choose "Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov)" as target format from "Final Cut Pro" dialogue box.

Tip: If you want to set some parameters for the output profile, you could click the "Settings" button to set the output bitrate, encode, frame rate, resolution, sample rate, channels, etc.

Step 3. Start XDCAM MXF/IMX to FCP Conversion

When the former steps finished, you can press "Convert" button to start rewrapping Sony XDCAM files to Apple ProRes MOV for FCP. Once the conversion process is done, click "Open" button to get the generated MOV files.

NOTE: The FCP X does not install the ProApps QuickTime Codecs automatically, so you need download and install the codec manually from here.

Step 4. Import the converted Sony XDCAM files to FCP project

In this way, you can effortlessly import and edit Sony XDCAM files in Final Cut Pro smoothly.
