Canon Eos plug in
on Aug 13, 2013 at 3:14:03 pm

I am trying to bring in footage from Canon Rebel T4i. I downloaded the plug-in from Canon, link I was given Mark II, I downloaded from the Mark III. It looks to be the same. I was under the impression once the plug-in was down loaded and installed I would be able to log and transfer. However the log and transfer does not find the footage. What am I missing?

Try 5DtoRGB free from the App Store or the paid batch version which allows you to set up a render queue so you don't have to sit and do one at a time. Much better results and multi-processor aware so it is much faster.

Warren,

Thank you for the information. When I checked I would have to upgrade to 10.7 or more. Right now on am on 10.6 For now I am using a work around with MPEG Stream. It works well enough.

Suzin - You have to keep the CF card structure intact when you transfer it over to your hard drive. So you can't just grab the .MOV files and expect FCP L&T to see them. You have to bring the whole card over with its various folders and files.

But again a program like MPEG Streamclip or 5DtoRGB will just grab the .MOV files and convert them to whatever you specify.

Ryan,

Thank you again pointing out about the 'CF card structure intact' .
That I do understand and have kept it intact.

Knowing people who have used the Canon Plug in and having it worked made me a bit of a pit bull in wanting it to work for me too. It seems it is a problem for the t4i, and others have had to modify the .plist... I am not going there.

As you had suggested about other third party such as MPEG... that is what I am using. For now it works great and all I am doing is simple test shots etc. If in the future I get heavy into the Canon.... then I will research and look into other recommendations you have already mentioned.

On another note, I again thank you for your response and taking the time to give guidance. It is truly very much appreciated.

No problem. Glad to help.

You may look into getting out of the Canon consumer DSLR world - t3i, t4i, etc. If you move up into their "professional" bodies I don't think you'd have these problems....at least in my experience I haven't had them. I use a Canon 7D and 5D Mark III. But there's also the 6D (and maybe the 60/70D would work better). Just something to consider if you want to go further down this road....

Ryan,

Once again I thank you for taking the time to offer further information. I would definitely take your recommendations into consideration if I decide to move up to a new DSLR.

Best
Suz
