Importing Canon C300 MK II/C300 clips to Avid Media Composer on Windows 10/8.1/8

June 24, 2016

While opening Avid Media Composer to edit Canon C300 MXF files, you may come across problems, such as only hear the sound, but there is no image. In this page, we will share the Canon C300/C300 MK II 4K/2K Workflow with Avid MC on Windows.

Question: Canon C300 Avid work flow ???
"Hi,
I'm about to start a feature shooting with C300 Mark II and cutting on Avid. I'm and editor but will be on the on set DIT for the first time. I know I need a good transfer program for the files to a drive and a transcoding program. Can someone suggest some good ones? I don't want to cut AMA, would rather transcode the footage first. I'm running a MacBook Pro, and will be on location a lot...so I can't be lugging too much gear. Thanks!"

Okay, I’ve been researching possible workflows for Canon C300/C300 MK II and Avid Media Composer. As you know, both Canon C300 and C300 Mark ii are awesome camcorders. With it you can shot videos with Canon's XF Codec -a file-based MPEG-2 compression with an MXF File Wrapper. Since MXF is not a good editing format for NLE system including Avid Media Composer. If you make the recordings editable before taking to the Avid Media Composer program, the incompatible error won’t happen any more.
