Hello. I have a new Canon MX300. The file format this unit uses is MXF. There are many MXF file conversion software products on the market such as "Pavtube or Borosoft". Basically these convert the MXF files into useable format such as Mpeg or what ever else you desire in a lossless format. Then that file can be utilize in a editing software to create a movie. My question is, instead of having to use the file conversion software can Adobe Premier Elements 12 bypass the conversion step? Does it need a plug in to work. Talking with the GREAT Canon rep today he lead me to believe it would but I wanted to ask the experts here.
Moving this discussion to the Premiere Elements forum.
Welcome to the forum, and thanks Jeff.
PrPro can natively handle MXF files from the Canon, but I do not know of a way to Import those directly into PrE. There might be an available plug-in, but I do not know of it. Also, with the 3rd party plug-in market, PrE is pretty far down their lists, as it only costs about $100, so the users are not likely going to spend much on a plug-in.
Perhaps others will have some useful tips on handling the MXF files.
