Import MXF file into premiere



I’m using a canon XF100 and premiere pro CS5 on a Mac Pro.


I would like to know the best workflow so I can get footage from the camera, into premiere so I can start editing.



My attempts so far:


1. Importing the MXF file directly into premiere


Result: When dropping the clip onto the timeline, only the audio appears


2. Using XCam Transfer to import the footage and convert to .mov


Result: The audio and video appear on the time line, but the audio is shorter than the video and skips and jumps




Your advice and patience is greatly appreciated.
