Editing Canon XF305 MXF Files in FCP X with Multi-track Audio

Question: “Hi, I filmed using Canon XF305 camera using 2 clip mics and want to edit in Apple Final Cut Pro X. I’ve tried several programs but always loss some of the audio channels. Pls I need to edit both the original two channels in my FCP X. How can I solve this?”

Along with the XF300, the XF305 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 XF305 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 widely available Compact Flash cards.


XF305 MXF recordings will not be recognized by FCP X. Hereby if you want to edit them in Final Cut X, the Apple Prores encoded MOV is mostly recommended.
