Posted by admin | Comments are off for this article

With the XC10 4K Camcorder from Canon, professional UltraHD 4K recording capability is presented in package ergonomically designed for handheld operation and portability. The camera incorporates a 10x f/2.8 to 5.6 SLR-style manual zoom lens with auto and manual focus capability. The 4K recording in a compact form factor is made possible by the camera’s 1″ CMOS sensor that is backed by a DIGIC DV 5 image processor. With a 4224 x 3164 total resolution, it is able to capture video at up to 3840 x 2160 and 4:3 photos in up to 12-megapixels (4000 x 3000).

The XC10 uses Canon’s new XF-AVC codec to record video files and package them in an .MXF wrapper. The XF-AVC uses the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 video compression format, efficiently recording 4K, 2K and HD video to regular memory cards while achieving a high data compression rate and preserving image quality, which is much difficult for Premiere Pro or After Effects to recognize and support.

To get rid of this trouble, a wise option is to convert Canon XC10 MXF files to MPEG-2(in proper settings) for Adobe Premiere Pro or After Effects. In this case, you need the help from UFUSoft MXF Converter for Mac, a professional 4K MXF converter app. It provides optimal presets such as MPEG-2 (*.mpg) for Adobe Premiere Pro or After Effects, Apple ProRes 422, Apple ProRes 422(HQ), Apple ProRes 422 (LT), Apple ProRes 422 (Proxy), and Apple ProRes 4444 for Final Cut Pro; Apple InterMediate Codec for iMovie/FCE; DNxHD for Avid Media Composer, etc. With it, you can transcode your Canon XC10 4K MXF videos to Adobe Premiere Pro or After Effects favored format quickly and easily.
