Can’t Transfer Canon C300 Mark II MXF 4K files to FCE/iMovie Solution

“I’m trying to import some C300 MK II 4K MXF files into FCE or iMovie, but the program can’t recognize the 4K files. I would be pleased to learn some experience of editing 4K video in FCE or iMovie. Searching online, I found many guys are suffering the issues like program crashed, black viewer screen, no audio track when importing 4K MXF to Final Cut Express or iMovie …”

The Canon C300 Mark II is not just an upgrade from the previous model; it’s a brand-new camera. Mineo highlights the new features, which include a new sensor, dual DIGIC V processors, and XF-AVC internal recording at 4K, 2K, and HD. Video is recorded to CFast 2.0 cards, with frame rates up to 30p at 4K resolution, 60p at HD, and up to 120p in a 2K-crop mode. Other notable features mentioned by Mineo include the camera’s 15 stops of dynamic range, built-in ND filters, and the new die-cast body/frame and fan design.

Okay, to make Canon EOS C300 Mark II MXF footage work with FCP, iMovie, FCE, and Avid, you will need to download Plugins from Canon site. For instance, XF Plugin is required for editing C300 Mark II MXF with Final Cut Pro, and the AMA plug in is required for importing C300 MK II MXF to Avid Media Composer. But what to do if the plug in doesn’t work as expected?

So , in this article , for those who need to edit Canon C300 Mark II 4K files in iMovie/FCE, we would suggest them to encode EOS C300 Mark II 4K MXF footage to AIC .mov before editing in iMovie/FCE.
