  1. 5 months ago

    If you encountered problems with Canon XF305/XF105/XF100/XF300 MXF when importing to Premiere Pro CS5 on Mac OS X, you can follow this article to find the solution and solve it.

    Canon XF305, XF105, XF100, XF300 camcorders are all very popular sellers in the canon XF series, and also in the photography market. You may have bought one and need to edit Canon MXF files in Adobe Premiere Pro CS5. So, come with a question- can Premiere Pro CS5 edit MXF files from the Canon XF camcorder?


    A bit frustrating. The MXF files are not well supported by Premiere Pro CS5, as you may encounter many audio and video problems. And I know that Premiere Pro CS5 can render to the part of MXF format, but it can’t handle raw MXF files. The Canon site lists various compatible editors for this camcorder, but Premiere Pro CS5 is not in the list (It includes Final Cut, Avid etc). So, how to import Canon MXF footage in Premiere Pro CS5 for editing smoothly?

    The best way is to convert Canon XF305/XF105/XF100/XF300 footage to Premiere Pro CS5 compatible format, like MOV (AVC), which is the best format for Premiere Pro CS5 editing on Mac. Brorsoft MXF Converter for Mac (a professional Mac MXF to Premiere Pro Converter tool) is the best choice for you. It can generates best editing format/codec for filmmakers and video enthusiasts to use in different NLE apps, such as Adobe Premiere Pro CS4/CS5/CS6, Adobe After Effects, iMovie, Final Cut Express, Final Cut Pro 6/7/X, and more. For Windows user, get the MXF Converter .

  2. [size="4"]This article explains how to get Corel VideoStudio Pro work with MXF files beautifully. Read on to learn details about MXF to VideoStudio Pro workflow.[/size]

    Corel VideoStudio Supported file formats
    The supported file formats are listed below.

    Import formats

    AVCHD, DV, HDV, AVI, MPEG-1/-2/-4, DVR-MS, DivX*,
    SWF*, UIS, UISX, M2T, M2TS, TOD, MOD, M4V, WebM, 3GP,
    WMV, Non-encrypted DVD titles, MOV, MKV, HEVC

    MXF is notlisted as above. MXF is a "container" format used by professional camcorders and only a few high end software programs. None of the "user entry" video programs can handle MXF format. Corel video studio is not an exception for it cannot open raw MXF files. What you need to do is to transcode MXF to MPEG-2/WMV for using in Corel VideoStudio Pro natively.

    For converting MXF video into editing friendly format for Corel VideoStudio Pro X9.5/X9/X8/X7/X6, the best recommendation is Brorsoft MXF Converter .

    This program is so sweet. It did what I wanted. I shot some footages in my friend's wedding by using my new C300 Mark II. I planed to make a short movie as his wedding present with these footages. Unfortunately, my Corel VideoStudio X9.5 does not support MXF. I tried other editing softwares like Sony Vagas, GrassValley, doesn't work either. And then I got this program on Google seraching, it works well! I converted my mxf files to MPG format supported by my Corel VideoStudio. Now everything goes well. Many thanks for this great mxf converter.


    Every software works great! I am so happy that I purchased Brorsoft software!!!


    Just have a try, and you will love it.
