Wow, just bought the 7D and although a fantastic camera, it slows my edit system considerably. In fact it crashes Vegas and After FX. I believe it works better in Final Cut Pro, can anyone shed some light on your experiences?

You need to transcode the footage to a format your edit system supports.

On the PC side look at using MPEG Streamclip or Reframe

I use Final Cut Pro with my 7D, but I do transcode all of my footage to ProRes before editing. It works great! Compressor is an excellent tool for transcoding the 7D footage, allowing me to slow my 60p footage to 24p.

I actually downloaded a trial version of Vegas on a Dell laptop this weekend, and I really like the interface, but I felt handcuffed, mostly because I don't understand what tools are available to me. I imported the H.264 files from the 7D, and tried to edit, but I couldn't get real-time playback. I'm sure my hardware was not up to snuff for that footage. It was pretty much impossible to edit under those conditions. I probably should have used Vegas to convert the files to something less resource intensive. Maybe I'll try that and see what happens. Unfortunately, I haven't found a good solution for editing 7D files natively.

There is not currently native H.264 editing that works well. But to be honest... you want to get out of the lossy codec anyways.

Before importing into Vegas, transcode the footage with CineForm Neo Scene (which uses a lossless AVI codec). You can download a 7-day trial on their website. It's worked great for me.

Been burning up the blogs trying to answer 2 questions.

1 For now what is the best import solution to get .mov to play well in Vegas (8) Neoscene, Pinnacle 14, or Upgrade to V 9?

2 Any ideas on the best PC slow mo solution when shooting 1280x720 60P? On vegas it imports with normal audio, but double time vid.

Thanks, long time vegas user, stuff on earthflight.com
