Cannot import P2 HVX200A MXF footage to FCP X/7/6 for post production? Is there a P2 MXF plug-in or a reliable conversion program that will actually work? If you are looking for a way to make FCP work with HVX200A MXF files, this post may shed you some lights on this.

Panasonic HVX200A gives the video enthusiasts totally different experience. It features in satisfying the needs of professional videographers. People who had used it are all impressive about powerful and humanizing functions. Although so many advantages does the HVX200A have, there is still one thing bothers its users, which is Panasonic HVX200A generates MXF files and MXF is not compatible with Final Cut Pro.

The Panasonic HVX200 camcorder records footage on a Panasonic P2 card, with file extension .MXF, which is a format I haven’t used before. I tried to edit HVX200 P2 MXF files in FCP 7, unfortunately, there was no go. FCP 7 seemed not to recognize the HVX200 MXF files at all. I’ve tried a lot of times, but failed at the end. Also, I could not find any plug-in to help import Panasonic HVX200 P2 MXF files to FCP. What a frustrated thing it is! So I was wondering if I need to convert HVX200 P2 MXF to a format that is acceptable by FCP 7, like Apple ProRes 422 or something similar. If so, would you please kindly recommend a Converter Program to do so? I don’t want to degrade quality significantly and hope it will convert as fast as possible. Any ideas?
