How to convert MXF files to Apple ProRes on Mac for FCP/FCP X

I am using a new Canon C300 as a primary camera for shooting videos. It will generate .mxf files. I want to edit the MXF videos with Final Cut Pro on My Mac, but the FCP can’t recognize MXF videos for editing. Can I convert MXF to ProRes for editing?”
