Quesiton: C3OO II MXF to Premiere CS6 Workflow?
I’m using a canon C300 Mark II and premiere pro CS6 on a Mac Pro. I would like to know the best workflow so I can get footage from the camera, into premiere so I can start editing.
My attempts so far:
1. Importing the MXF file directly into premiere
Result: When dropping the clip onto the timeline, only the audio appears
2. Using XCam Transfer to import the footage and convert to .mov
Result: The audio and video appear on the time line, but the audio is shorter than the video and skips and jumps

Your advice and patience is greatly appreciated.”
