To solve the compatible issue of MXF format, Canon has released plug-in for importing MTS files. Canon XF Plug-in takes MXF files from XF305, XF300, XF105 and XF100, allowing MXF footage to be ingested to major editing systems including Adobe Premiere, Final Cut Pro, Avid, and Grass Valley. No matter XF Plug-ins helps or not, CyberLink Power Director, a video editing software application for non-linear video editing, obviously is not included in these major NLE systems. In other words, CyberLink PowerDirector fails to import and recognize MXF files from XF camcorders. To import Canon MXF footage to CyberLink PowerDirector, you need to transcode MXF to favorable formats like AVI, MOV, MP4, WMV, etc. for PowerDirector.
