The heart of any Canon camera is its superb image-sensor technology. The EOS C300 Mark II Digital Cinema Camera integrates an 8.85 Megapixel Super 35mm 16:9 CMOS sensor that supports 4K recording with a maximum resolution of 4096 x 2160 pixels. This camera incorporates the new Canon XF-AVC codec that allows 4K image data to be recorded internally onto CFast (2.0) cards (H.264 in an MXF wrapper), The camera fully utilizes the image data delivered by this 4K CMOS sensor to also enable Over Sampling HD Processing for 2K and Full HD1080/60p recording.
When you import Canon EOS C300 Mark II 4K MXF to Final Cut Pro X and Premiere Pro CC for editing, you’ll be disappointed since FCP and Premiere doesn’t natively support the new Canon XF-AVC codec. As far as I know, any videos you try to import to Final Cut Pro and Premiere Pro need to be encoded with Apple ProRes/H.264 and wrapped up in MOV file container. Thus, to load EOS C300 Mark II MXF video files in Apple and Adobe editing program, there is a need to convert Canon EOS C300 Mark II footage to their compatible formats first.
Final Cut Pro supports Apple ProRes 422 natively although, like Adobe Premier Pro, it is pretty picky with the codecs of what it’ll accept. As far as I know Final Cut Pro doesn’t like H.264 in an MXF container. If you want to import Canon EOS C300 Mark II recordings to FCP X flawlessly, I recommend you to convert Canon 4K/2K/1080P video to a more editable format for Final Cut Pro X. For Adobe Premiere Pro CC users, convert EOS C300 Mark II MXF to H.264 MOV is your needs. Actually, there are many MXF Converter on market, but a few of them can support converting videos with fast conversion speed and zero quality loss. After multiple testing, I found Acrok MXF Converter for Mac is the best choice.
Overall, the program can be used as an all-in-one 4K/2K/HD conversion app for all the editing software.
