appear in the media panel at the same time and you will be able the access and work on clips from
both media.
08
Connecting a camcorder equipped with a USB terminal to the computer
1. Power the camcorder using the compact power adapter.
• If you only want to read clips from the CF cards in the camcorder and do not need to write onto
them, you can connect the camcorder even if it is powered only by a battery pack.
2. Turn on the camcorder and set it in MEDIA mode.
• Insert the CF cards that contain the clips you want to check into the camcorder in advance.
3. Start up XF Utility.
4. Connect the camcorder to the computer using a USB cable.
• Use the optional IFC-400PCU USB cable or similar mini-B USB cable.

Exporting MXF Files to a Folder
C
You can export MXF stream files* of your clips and save them on a local folder on the computer. When
you export clips as MXF files, you will have the option to merge multiple clips, to rename the MXF
stream files and to change the audio output characteristics of the clips. You can then edit these files
with any non-linear editing (NLE) software that supports Canon MXF files. For details about using MXF
stream files, refer to the instruction manual of the video editing software.
* MXF (Material eXchange Format) is an SMPTE-defined container specification that includes video, audio, metadata and other
information.
1. In the clips panel, select the desired clips.
• Use Shift + Click or 2 + click to select multiple clips.
2. Click Edit > Export To MXF.
• The Export To MXF dialog box will appear.
3. Select the way the files will be exported from the pull-down menu (�).
Copy MXF Files

Merge All Clips
Merges the MXF stream files within each clip and also merges multiple
selected clips into a single file.
Merge Each Clip
Merges the MXF stream files within each clip but keeps multiple selected
clips as separate files.
4. To change the folder where the exported MXF files will be saved, click Browse and then select
the Folder for Exported Files (�).
• By default, a new subfolder will be created automatically for the exported files. The name of the
subfolder represents the date and time of the export operation. To export the MXF files directly
into the selected destination folder, remove the checkmark from the Automatic Creation of
Subfolders box (쐋).
Importing and Writing Back Clips
5. To rename the exported files, check the Rename Files box and enter the desired file name in the
field below it (�).
• To number multiple MXF files consecutively enter the starting number in the Initial Value for
Consecutive Numbers field (�). You can check the Remember Consecutive Numbering box below
it to automatically continue the consecutive numbering also for future export operations.
6. If in step 3 you selected one of the merge options, you can change the way audio is exported in
the following step; otherwise, skip to step 8.
16
7. Select the Number of Audio Channels (�) and the Audio Bit Rate (�) from the respective pulldown menus.
• When you set Number of Audio Channels to 4 ch or 8 ch, 2 or 6 audio tracks will be added to the
original files and mute data will be recorded in these additional tracks. The default 2 ch will not add
any audio tracks to the original audio tracks.
• When you set Audio Bit Rate to 24-bit, the original audio will be converted from 16-bit to 24-bit
audio.
8. Click Export (�).
