The "Canon XF" plug-in provides user with the ability to import the Canon XF card’s video and audio content together with the associated metadata to the Cinegy Archive database through the common import process.

Canon_XF_import

Add_remove

Use these buttons to add the Canon XF clips from your Canon device(s), local drive(s) or network shared storage and/or remove them from the "Sources" list.

The configuration settings of the Canon XF import are as follows:

Canon_XF_settings

The "Do not join spanned clips" option allows you to keep the clips spanned and be imported as separate clips afterwards. When disabled, the spanned clip segments will be imported as a single clip. This option should be used only in case you are planning to use the batch import of high quality clips after exporting the material from Cinegy Archive to Avid Media Composer.

Choose the "Append index to the spanned clip names" option to add a consecutive index number to the imported clip name along with the ".mxf" extension to match the original file name, for example, AA00401.MXF, AA00402.MXF and so on.

The import process managing of the "Canon XF Import" plug-in is the same as for the Panasonic P2 Card tool.
