Summary: Want to transcode batch MXF footages to ProRes MOV for FCP? Just read this post below, and you will know how to transcode batch MXF video to MOV for Final Cut Pro editing on Mac Mountain Lion 10.8

"I'm in the process of purchasing a Canon Professional camcorder which uses MXF format files. I am using Apple Final Cut Pro X with Lion operating system. Is there a tool which can help me when ingesting with Final Cut Pro X rather than earlier versions of Final Cut Pro. I also want to batch handle multiple MXF files for Final Cut Pro, any ideas?"

We know Canon, Sony and Panasonic high-end camcorders can generate MXF recordings. While, when you import MXF files to FCP for editing, problems occurred. Although Final Cut Pro can support many HD codec, you will meet some stuttering problem when viewing the MXF footage in FCP on Mac.

The best solution to solve the MXF importing issues on FCP is to transcode MXF to ProRes for Final Cut Pro 6/7/X on Mac.
