For customers who use Panasonic P2 camcorders and Canon XF series camcorders, it must be very tough task to find a perfect solution to import footage to Final Cut Pro for editing.
As we all know, the recorded video format by Panasonic P2 camcorders, Canon XF series camcorders, etc., is MXF, which is the abbreviation of Material eXchange Format. It is an open file format, targeted at the interchange of audio-visual material with associated data and metadata.
