You need to have Canon XF Utility combine the spanned clips because Avid does not recognize them as being spanned.
If I remember correctly XF Utility is the only App that recognizes the Spanned clips properly.
It's been quite awhile since I've last used it but the older version I used at the time had two quirks that you need to look out for.

First since they are likely not on the cards anymore so you may have to access the folder with the media sort if indirectly if that makes any sense. Second the nice Backup button in the top left corner used to combine all of the clips on a card into one clip even it they weren't spanned and the original TC was lost and became irrelevant. You will notice that the clips will be labeled something like AA005301, AA005302, AA005303 etc. depending on how many times the camera split a clip. Once XF Utility has combined all the spanned clips it will truncate the last two digits of the the filename and you will end up with a file named AA0053 as an example.

As I say it's quite awhile since I've used it and I don't currently have access to any C300 media to test the new version of XF Utility for you. I remember that there were about four different ways to get the media off the cards but only one pulled the media off properly wether spanned or not and retained the proper original TC.

Here's a link that may help.


Hope this helps.
