The XF300 Professional Camcorder represents Canon's entry into professional solid state video acquisition. Following on the heels of its widely respected XH line of tape-based camcorders, the XF300 takes advantage of the latest HD technology--along with Canon's newly developed MPEG-2 4:2:2 codec--to record Full HD video to affordable Compact Flash cards.

While, when you want to import Canon XF300 XF MXF files in FCP/Premiere Pro on OS X Mavericks 10.9 for editing, you will get frustrated due to the video codec incompatibility problem as below.

I have some multi-stream mxf files from a normal Canon XF300 and want convert them into any format that FCP and Premirere Pro adopts. The key point is I don’t want to loss any of the audio channels that I recorded with two microphones. Is that any work flow for this? I hope this still fits for the OS X Mavericks 10.9 to be coming.
