Convert Panasonic P2 MXF to Apple ProRes for FCP X/7/6 editing

Panasonic’s DVCPRO P2, like AJ-HPX3700, AJ-HPX2700, AJ-HPX3100, AJ-HPX2100, AJ-HPX2000, AG-3DP1, AG-HPX500 series, AG-HPX370 series, AG-HPX250, AG-HVX170 etc. produced mutually incompatible files due to opaque subformat options obscured behind the MXF file extension. Thus, for Mac users with P2 HD camcorder, they often encounter the importing problem while transferring the footage from the P2 cards to Final Cut Pro X/7/6 as the user below:

“One of my clients just bought a used Panasonic P2 camera, a HVX200, and wants to edit P2 MXF footages in FCP on OS 10.6, but he found FCP can not recognize the P2 .mxf footages well. Any idea?”

The MXF file wrapper that ensures the widest compatibility with existing industry infrastructure, metadata and non-linear editing (NLE) systems. The codec’s 4:2:2 color sampling provides ultra-fine transitions in tone and color for maintaining the highest image quality needed for advanced post production processing. While Panasonic P2 users still have troubles when importing those 1080P recordings with .mxf file extension to the latest Final Cut Pro X or FCP 6/7 for editing. It’s not an odd thing, because we can not find P2 out there from “Final Cut Pro X Supported Cameras” page. Then what to do if you need import P2 MXF files to FCP?
