I’m using a Canon XF100 and Premiere Pro CS5 on a Mac Pro. I would like to know the best workflow so I can get footage from the camera, into Premiere so I can start editing.
My attempts so far:
1. Importing the MXF file directly into Premiere
Result: When dropping the clip onto the timeline, only the audio appears
2. Using XCam Transfer to import the footage and convert to .mov
Result: The audio and video appear on the time line, but the audio is shorter than the video and skips and jumps
The above is quoted from a client’s e-mail, asking how to import MXF files into Premiere Pro CS5 on Mac. To do this, a converter is needed, and TransMXF for Mac is the best one. Here are some quick steps.
Step 1: Add MXF videos to TransMXF for Mac after install and launch.
Step 2: Choose the output format for the videos from the drop down list. Click “setting” for some personal preference and click “output” to choose the route for the transferred videos.
Step 3: Start conversion. Wait a moment, and then you will get the videos applicable for Premiere Pro CS5 by the Canon XF100 MXF to MOV Converter
With several simple steps, you can easily import Canon XF100 MXF files into Premiere Pro CS5 on Mac without any problem.
