Transferring Canon MK II 4K MXF videos to Editable on Camtasia Studio

Below is a guide for you, you can follow it to convert Canon C300 MK II 4K MXF to Camtasia Studio 7/8 WMV/MP4 format for editing.

For C300 Mark ii users, when we want to edit the 4K MXF videos through Camtasia, it fails. Why?

Camtasia Studio supports AVI, .WMV, MPEG-1, .MP3, .WAV, .WMA, and .MOV (QuickTime) files. It does not support MXF/P2 MXF, AVCHD files (.m2ts, .mts, and .m2t), XAVC, MXF, Video_TS, MPEG-2, MOD, Ogg, WebM, .RM (RealPlayer), .FLV (Flash Video), 3GPP, and SWF created outside Techsmith products. It means that those videos incompatible cannot be imported to Camtasia Studio directly and must be converted or re-recorded.

For converting C300 MK II 4K MXF video into editing friendly format, the best recommendation is Brorsoft MXF Converter .


This software works very well and operation is simple. It can generates more optimal editing formats/codecs for you to use in different NLE apps, such as Adobe After Effects, Adobe Premiere Pro, Sony Vegas Pro, Camtasia Studio, Windows Movie Maker and more. Personally I am very pleased with the product. As I have only used the product a few times so far it is difficult to give any constructive comments at this stage but all my conversions were done successfully with stunning image quality – I can hardly tell any quality difference.
