How to Import C300 Footage in Avid, FCP X and Premiere

How to Import C300 Footage in Avid, FCP X and Premiere:
With every new camera, comes many new questions about workflow. The term ‘workflow’ can be fairly broad, but today I am looking at importing C300 footage into various non-linear editing systems (NLE). The C300 uses the same workflow as the Canon XF series of cameras (which includes the XF305, XF300, XF105 and XF100), because it records in the same format. However, the tools for importing the footage have been updated by Canon. Below, I outline how to ingest footage onto a hard drive, and how to import into Avid Media Composer, Final Cut Pro 7, Premiere 5.5 and Final Cut Pro X. Keep reading for a brief how-to on each process.
