Working with Clips on a Computer
Saving Clips to a Computer
Use Canon XF Utility to save and organize clips on a computer. You can use the Canon XF plugins to easily use clips directly from non-linear editing (NLE) software made by Avid. To be able to use XF-HEVC clips in Canon XF Utility or the Canon XF plugins, you will need to download and install also the Canon XF-HEVC Decoder. The software, plugins and decoder are available as free downloads from your local Canon Web site. Check the download page for the system requirements and latest information.
You will find detailed instructions about installing and uninstalling the software in the "Read This First" file (Install-XF Utility.pdf) included in the compressed file you will download from the Web site. For details about using the software, refer to the instruction manual (PDF file) that is installed with the software.
