I searched many information to look for the reason and solve the importing problem, but I failed. Many users said that it was likely to be the system. So I have to start to look for a third party converter to convert Panasonic AG-HPX255 MXF. to FCP 7 on Mac OS X.

I’m using FCPX ver:10.0. For last 15days, i have trying to import Panasonic  AG-HPX255 P2 files & mxf files but i’m unable to do that, as all of you know that there are two types of mxf formats. 1)OP-atom(recording format with containing folders from P2 Cam, 2) OP1a(A/V embedded format). I want to import these two category of files to the FCP X timeline unfortunately FCP X is not importing, i like to know that is there any option have in the FCP X? so that i can import it natively?
