FAQs & Answers: Canon XF plugins and Final Cut Pro Problem Solved

If you are using a Canon camera and camcorder, and also want to edit on Final Cut Pro 6 or FCP 7/FCP X, you can choose Canon XF plugins. Having problems with plugins? This article will offers you the best solution.

I'm in the process of purchasing a Canon XF Professional camcorder which uses MXF format files. I want to make a short video for my daughter. Next month is her birthday. I am using Apple Final Cut Pro. I always have problems with Canon XF plugins. Is there a place for solving my problems?

Canon developed Canon XF Utility for exclusive use with movies captured with the XF camcorders (XF305/300/105/100) and Cinema EOS C300 camera. The Canon XF Utility offers various options for managing and playing back clips recorded with the camcorder with which the software was supplied. Mainly, Canon XF Utility lets you do the following:

* Checking and playing back clips – Display a list of all the clips recorded on a CF card, search the list and play back clips.

* Saving and writing back clips – Save clips that were recorded on a CF card to the computer, or write back preciously saved clips from the computer onto a CF card.

* Creating and editing User Memo profiles – Create, edit and save User Memo profiles on SD memory cards. Later, you can load a User Memo file from the SD memory card to the camcorder and embed this information with the clips you record.

Canon XF plugin helps users a lot while importing Canon .MXF footage to work with non-linear video editing programs. However, users still have problems one or another when utilizing the software, especially with Final Cut Pro on Mac OS X. We have a collection of frequently asked questions about Canon XF Plugin for Final Cut Pro here, and aim to provide available solutions to these issues.

Problem 1

"We are using FCP 7, and as far as I know it does not read Canon C300 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 7?"

Solution to Problem 1:

It is strongly suggested to convert MXF clips to Apple ProRes 422 using Pavtube Canon MXF Converter software, because FCP 7 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. The Canon Camera Video Converter tool is able to load MXF files directly from your camera, or read from a folder stored on your computer's HDD or an external hard drive, as well as separate .MXF clips out of the camera's original folder structure. Plus, this solution is particular helpful when you need combine footage coming from different cameras with different video modes. Best of all, it is capable of keeping multiple audio tracks in your source material.

Problem 2

"Hi, I am about to begin editing a film shot on Canon XF100. I have a hard-drive onto which all of the raw files were dumped, and am now trying to find a way of working with the files. As far as I can make out everything was copied as it should be (i.e. with the directory structure intact):

I have installed the Canon XF plugin for FCP. Problems arise when I try to use Log & Transfer to transcode the MXF material. I have tried Native/Pro Res 422/ ProRes LT/in fact all of the options from the drop down destination menu, and keep getting the same problem: namely, that about 80-90 percent of files are only transcoded in part. What I mean is that a 5 minute clip ends up as only 10 seconds. I have FCP 7.0.3 and the relevant Canon XF plugins...Now I'm at a loss as to what to do... Anyone have any suggestions as to how I can start editing this film on FCP?"

Solution to Problem 2:

It seems that Canon XF utility somehow messed up when rendering the MXF media for use in Final Cut Pro 7. We heard people have troubles with EOS plugin of similar nature. Can we L&T footage without utilizing Canon plugin? Actually, there are a large number of Canon MXF converter programs claiming to be good at transferring MXF media files to Apple ProRes 422 for FCP. The thing is that it's difficult to make audio and video always in sync in the generated ProRes MOV files. As for video and audio synchronization, Pavtube Canon MXF Converter does a good job. So, it's wise to use this software for MXF to FCP ProRes codec conversion.

Problem 3

"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?"

Solution to Problem 3:

Pavtube Canon Video Converter
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 to fit different FCP use.

Problem 4
"I've run into a problem with a project. I copied the entire card file structure of XF305 onto a hard drive, installed all the right codecs...and it's telling me the file structure is invalid."

Solution to Problem 4:

Final Cut Pro users often meet unknown errors when editing Canon MXF clips. Fortunately, we always have workaround to deal with these incompatible issues. Simple convert MXF files recorded by a Canon camera to Apple ProRes 422 via using a Canon MXF Converter, this is the simplest solution.

Basically, with the versatile Canon Camera Video Converter, it will be possible to let Final Cut Pro touch MXF material shot on a Canon XF305/300/105/100 and C300 camera even without utilizing Canon XF plugin.

Convert .mts files from JVC Everio GZ-HM330SAA in iMovie/FCE/FCP/Avid MC

Here is the quick tutorial for you that will show you the simplicity of JVC Everio GZ-HM330SAA workflow for importing MTS files in FCP, iMovie, Premiere Pro, Avid for editing by transcoding JVC MTS to Mac editable format (Mavericks 10.9 included).

I work at at CyberNet Evolution, and below is a question from one of my friends: 

I purchased a JVC Video recorder, the model is GZ-HM330SAA and I shot some footage about my kids basketball games. I am not sure I just converted the video and gave it to my daughter who edited it on her Apple Mac for me. Just keeping the videos as a record. But I find I couldn’t convert the software to copy to a DVD. I made a mistake purchasing this camera not realisied how difficult it was. I contacted JVC and they were no help at all. 

So I took his camera to my local Tech guy and I couldn’t help much at all either but I start to surf the net and see if I could find something. While searching for solutions, I find some plug-in for Mac can do some work. But the importing way is a tedious process, which needs you patience. Fortunately, I found Pavtube web site and its software, and there is an alternative easy way to fix the issue.

Converting HD-DVD (.evo) files to NAS for streaming to Xbox 360

This article will help you to convert HD-DVD .evo videos to NAS server compatible files so you can stream them from NAS for watching on your Xbox 360 easily.

Question: Hi - obviously it's possible to play .ts files through an xbox 360 connected to a media center pc...but anyone know if it's possible to play .evo files (movies ripped from my HD-DVD collection) through the same setup?

As the .evo files didn't work with Xbox 360, you need to convert HD-DVD (.evo) movie files into H.264 MP4 before streaming from NAS to Xbox360.

To accomplish this goal, you are highly suggested to try this Pavtube Video Converter, a professional tool to help you quick convert various video formats including .evo videos ripped from HD-DVD collection to Xbox compatible MP4 format with best video quality and simplest workflow.

Below is a user's Review:

Having tried Cuda Video Converter Advanced Verision, but I think Pavtube will be a winner, as for its best UI, best Features, easy-to-Use workflow and reasonable Price. I like its Cuda acceleration, the User Interface is nice too. It not also has the ability to convert HD-DVD (.evo) files, but also support all my input and output video formats. Oh, what I like best is its batch mode. 

FYI: You can reach the Mac version here: Pavtube VideoConverter for Mac.

How to watch BHD-DVD (.evo) files on Xbox 360??

Step 1. Run Best EVO Converter and import .evo videos.

Click "Add Video" or "Add from folder" icon to load  to choose import individual videos or the entire folder. Drag-and-drop is also supported.

Step 2. Choose Format.

Click"Format" drop-down list and choose "Common video>H.264 Video(*.mp4)"; it'sthe most widely used format which will be supported by your TV.

Step 3. Adjustvideo specs or change aspect ratio (Optional)

If you are not satisfied with default specs, then click "Settings" to enter Profiles Settings windows; here you can customize video frame rate, bitrate,size and other settings freely.

If you want to trim, crop, edit audio/subtitles or adjust aspect ratio, click the pencil-like icon and switch to "Crop" tab. Choose Advanced mode, lock the "Keep Ratio" and you can free change aspect ratio.Usually it will be set to "Original"; it would be ok to playback on Xbox 360, or you can change it to 16:9.

Step 4. Start conversion.

Clickthe big red "Convert" to start converting your HD-DVD EVO files to H.264 MP4. After the conversion, click "Open output folder" to quick locate converted files; now stream the converted EVO movie in MP4 to your NAS and stream to Xbox 360. Now freely enjoy your HD-DVD evo movies with family!

Problem with loading Nikon D3100/D3200 H.264 MOV files to FCP 6/7

This article offers a brief guide about how to transcode and transfer Nikon D3100/D3200 H.264 MOV footages to Mac editing program in FCP 6/7.


I am using the older FCP 6.0.6 with a new Nikon D3200 DSLR that shoots "MOV" files.  I can't seem to find "settings" that enable "copying," "importing" "log and caputure," whatever process. FCP crashes every time I try to get the files. FYI:  I am shooting in 1920x1080 at 24p and mostly trying the Apple ProRes 422 (HQ) setting, but have tried DVCPRO also. Anybody got suggestions about what I need to do?

Best Answer:

You need to convert the native format that camera shoots Before you import. There is no plugin that allows FCP 6/7 to deal with that tapeless format, like it does with Canon DSLRs via Log and Transfer. You'll need to convert the H.264 mov files to ProRes 422(HQ), then import those files into FCP .

As a Nikon D3200 user, you may also have this question. Nikon D3200 shoot videos in h.264 mov format. Except D3200, most Nikon D series camcorders record videos with this format, like Nikon D800, Nikon D4, Nikon D3100, Nikon D3200, Nikon D5100,etc. As far as i know, h.264 is the maximum compression ratio codec. On one hand, it will give us resonable video size, on the other hand, it's not suitable for editing by most editing software. Final Cut Pro 6/7 also included.

To solve the importing problem loading Nikon D3100/D3200 H.264 MOV files in FCP 6/7, you’d better choice to convert Nikon H.264 MOV to ProRes 422 codec MOV format, then you can edit video well in FCP 6/7 on Mac.

Check out Pavtube HD Video Converter for Mac, a top H.264 MOV to ProRes MOV Converter. It supports transcoding all Nikon 1080p MOV files to Apple ProRes so that you can easily import the Nikon D3100/D3200 h.264 recordings to Final Cut Pro X, Final Cut Pro 6, Final Cut Pro 7 for editing on Mac (Mountain Lion and Mavericks 10.9 included). Plus, it also supports converting H.264 MOV to iMovie, FCE, Adobe, Avid and more.

Free Download and install the top Nikon H.264 Video Converter and follow the steps below to convert Nikon D3100/D3200 MOV to Final Cut Pro 6/7.

1. Transfer h.264 encoded .mov files from Nikon D3100/D3200 camera to your Mac HDD via USB cable. Run Pavtube HD Video Converter for Mac, click “Add video” to load the Nikon DSLR recorded MOV video or directly drag the files to this Mac HD Video Converter.

Tips: If you have multiple MOV clips, you can select the “Merge into one file” box to merge your multiple MOV files into one file.

2. Click “Format” bar and choose “Final Cut Pro -> Apple ProRes 422 HQ (*.mov)” as export format.

The Apple ProRes 422 (HQ) codec offers the utmost possible quality for 4:2:2 or 4:2:0 sources (without an alpha channel) and provides the following:
  • Target data rate of approximately 220 Mbps (1920 x 1080 at 60i)
  • Higher quality than Apple ProRes 422

Of course, Apple ProRes 422, Apple ProRes 422 LT, Apple ProRes 422 Proxy, Apple ProRes 4444, etc are all the proper format.

Learn more Apple ProRes, please refer to Types of Apple ProRes Codecs

3. Click the “Settings” button and customize proper video/audio parameters if necessary. Video size, bitrate and frame rate are flexible and can be adjusted as you like. E.g. Set video size to 1920*1080 when you feel like to keep 1080p as the source file features.

Before start the conversion, edit function is useful and convenient for you to use. You can deinterlace, trim, crop, adjust effects or add watermark to the video.

4. Click “Convert” button and transcode Nikon D3100/D3200 H.264 MOV to Apple ProRes MOV for using in Final Cut Pro 6/7 on Mac.

Once the conversion is finished, you can click “Open” button to get the output files effortlessly. Now you have got it right and them import the Apple ProRes .mov videos to FCP 6/7 for editing. Launch the Final Cut Pro, choose from File menu > Import > Files…
