I have the new Canon C300 camera and am unable to import clips into Lightroom 4 beta or into Lightroom 3. I never had that issue with my Mark ii 5D. When I plug my CF card into the reader, the clips' folder appear in Lightroom 4 beta and 3, but when you attempt import the clip folder OR click on the clip folder, a message appears saying "no photo". A C300 clip has 5 files in it, the video being a MXF file as well as other data files CIF, THM, XML, SIF.

the Canon 5D Mark ii and the C300 shoot different video formats. Lightroom doesn't currently support the .MXF format that the C300 creates.

Is it an option to import MPO files in LR4 en CS5?
