Meet troubles while syncing Canon C300 Mark II MXF videos to PluralEyes? This article will teach you how to edit Canon C300 Mark II clips in PluralEyes 4/3.5/3.
I was checking the PluralEyes 3.5 for codec compatibilities and didn’t see MXF under the supported codecs. I shoot with the Canon C300 Mark II so I want to make sure that I can edit Canon C300 Mark II MXF files in PluralEyes without any trouble.
Some guys on forum said that they imported the files into Ppro or other NLEs rather than dragging files and then send those imported files to PluralEyes, which worked well for them. I have tried, but it does not work for me totally. Finally, I chose to transcode all my Canon C300 Mark II .mxf videos to ProRes for transferring to PluralEyes 3.5. Here is the step-by-step tutorial about how to convert MXF to ProRes for using in Pluraleyes 3.5 if you have the same issue with me.
