I just rec'd my new XF705 a day ago and am very excited! I've shot test footage and now discover that the H.265 HVEC (MXF) format isn't supported by Premier Pro CC (latest version, etc). Workarounds such as changing .mxf extentions to .mp4 don't help much, footage is choppy and has drop outs. And who wants to do that anyway?
I just found the decoder downloadable from the XF705 support page. Has anyone tried it?
Canon XF-HEVC Decoder 1.0 for macOS
However when I download it, it says "installed" but then I can't find it anywhere in my system...not in applications (where my other Canon utilities load) or in the Utilities folder. Search comes up empty. Where does it reside? Any ideas?
I am desperate to get useable footage out of my new camera!
