I've been trying to get some 12 bit 444 XF-AVC footage into FCPX from my Canon C300 Mark II but apparently Apple have not yet installed the drivers or made the current version compatible, whereas PP CC and Avid both support this format.
Does anyone know if there's a way of getting the driver into FCPX because I don't want to go back to the pain that is transcoding vast swathes of media.
Whats weird is that supposedly phillip bloom was able to import this footage. but he did this early in april or may. i am curious if the previous version of fcpx had this codec working. do u have 10.2.1 or 10.2 installed?
No. I got a co-worker using it and we ran into the same problem. On Phillip Blooms page he said it worked with FCPX...but like i said it was in May when i think we were on 10.2.1. but yeah...would like to get a fix for this because the C300 Mark II is a great camera.
What OS are you using? Any chance you can upload a small camera card zip somewhere? It's unlikely that 10.2.2 changed anything over 10.2.1 in this regard as it's one of the few updates with compatible libraries with the previous version.
I'm on 10.2.2 and Yosemite. Canon's website seems to suggest that they are waiting for Apple to finish testing and that the next update to FCPX will include the XF-AVC support. It's a lovely camera to use and I'm hoping to be equally impressed with the footage when the big guns sort it out!
we did some transcode in Adobe Media Encoder, buts thats about the only thing to do, but why the h... di Canon use the FCPX logo on the website, they must know that it dont work at all on anything else than Adobe, is should be the other way around
I'm just starting to work in a project that's being shot in the Canon C300 Mark II as well. So if anyone can report a solution to import the footage directly into Final Cut Pro X, I'd really appreciate it.
I'm finding confusing information about this online. For instance, I just read on Twitter that you can successfully import XF-AVC media into Final Cut Pro X:
Invalid consumer key/secret in configuration
It seems FCPX needs to rewrap the MXF original files to MOV (so the support is not "truly native" I guess). But at least you can import the files with the "Copy to Library Destination" option checked.
Has anyone had the same experience with XF-AVC Intra frame footage?
Thanks to Robbie Coblentz (Twitter: @RCoblentz), I finally learnt what flavors of the XF-AVC format are not supported in Final Cut Pro X yet.
In this screencast he took the time to make, he proves that FCPX 10.2.2:
Supports all YCC 4:2:2 10-bit Canon C300 Mk II formats: HD/2K/UHD/4K.
Doesn't support any of the RGB 4:4:4 formats (HD/2K) regardless of the bit depth (10/12-bit).
I hope this is useful for someone else in this forum. I will definitely send feedback to Apple about this issue. Hopefully they will support 4:4:4 RGB clips from the Canon C300 MK II in future updates.
Strange thing is that I have the same version of both FCPX and OSX and I have installed the latest Apple pro video formats plugin but all the files on my import window are greyed out. I shot everything in HD YCC 10bit. The only thing I can think of doing is a fresh install, so that's what I'm doing now.
Here's a little video to demonstrate how my FCPX setup, running a 6 core Mac Pro with all the latest plugin and software versions, still does not allow me to import 10 bit footage from the Canon C300 Mark ii.
Anyone that can help me solve this little mystery will be an instant legend.
