Question: I just got my XF 300... shot some footage. I need to transfer the footage (the files) to my mac and import at a later date into FCP for a project down the road. At this point, I just want the video footage off the CF card so I can erase the card for more shooting.


The Canon XF Series camcorders generate .MXF files when recording video. The camcorders ships with a software application called Canon XF Utility to manage and playback video clips. However, when people try to get the video clips into QuickTime or FCP to play or edit with, they always get an error message about having unsupported media.
