I use canon mxf files (i frame) and dont even need proxies.

Post OS and Pr build, comp specs and file properties (mediainfo).

Are you importing them through Media Browser in the program? If not try that. Media Browser has helped me import stuff easily like Varicam footage that can get tripped up other ways.

Justin has a good suggestion. Using the MediaBrowser panel to ingest media is the cleanest way to do so. You can of course save 'favorites' so certain folders are available with one click. And ... the MediaBrowser does a better job of getting media with separate audio files (like some mxf  & AVCHD files are created by cameras) linked video to audio.

Some of the new cameras from Canon, Sony, Nikon and Panasonic have variations of H.264/265 that Quick Sync and Nvenc cannot decode or encode. Some people have just opted to record in a format that Premiere Pro, Avid, Vegas etc can handle. Intel's new CPUs for 2021 should be able to encode and decode the newer variations of H.264/265.
