“Has anyone out there been editing files from their Canon XF705 4K H.265 (HEVC) video in FCP X? Accompanied by the comfortable weather and warm sunshine, my family had a trip. We playing games, boating, and fishing there. At the same time, we enjoyed the beautiful scenery. The Canon XF705 achieved notable merits. I recorded all the things via the Canon XF705. But I can’t import the 4K footage into FCP X for editing. I was wondering if anyone else is having this issue or if anyone is getting clean playback. This is a question specific to Final cut pro X , thanks.”

The point here, you will find it a painful experience to load Canon XF705 4K MXF footage to FCP X. And there’re some frequently asked questions quoted as above.
