Blackmagic Design’s Hyperdeck Shuttle 2, a tiny video recorder allows you to go anywhere and record anywhere, can record uncompressed QuickTime and compressed Apple ProRes 422 (HQ) or Avid DNxHD MXF file formats, which can work right and normally in Avid systems.

When importing Hyperdeck Shuttle 2 DNxHD MXF files into FCP, a DNxHD codec can help but it is not a perfect codec for FCP and sometimes it may go wrong when you’re ready to import DNxHD MXF files recorded on a Hyperdeck Shuttle 2 to FCP. The easiest and most effective way to make your FCP ingest DNxHD MXF files is to transcode DNxHD MXF files into Apple ProRes which is natively supported by FCP real-time editing with the help of a Mac DNxHD MXF to FCP converter like Pavtube HD Video Converter for Mac.
