Canon EOS C300 deliver videos incredibly high audio and video quality in a MXF format, creating digital files robust enough for major post-production. However, editing systems like FCP cannot read and recognize MXF footage but Apple ProRes Codec. So, you need an MXF converter to transcode MXF to compatible ProRes exports
for further editing on FCP? So here, new puzzle comes with this. If you make great demands on quality, you need to keep the quality of output formats as high as possible. For instant, taking output video to broadcast, the 50mbps as the highest quality on the c300 is mandatory. How can you get the audio and video in converted format to be as good quality as original MXF?
