All,

Please take a look at 5DtoFCP, a complete FCS workflow designed to help editors get the slightly odd H264 files into a 25fps edit

5DtoFCP details

Should it prove popular, I'll make a dropframe version too.

Oh by the way, it is completely free!

These are great, thanks for putting them out there. Stupid question: how do I import them into Compressor as Custom Settings? Thought draging and dropping would do it but no dice.
Thanks

Hi,

Does this work flow work with canon 7d as well? Have been looking into this cam!

Yes it will convert the 7D as well although you will probably have set the correct framerate already.

Any chance of a 24fps conversion to XDCAM 1080P?

Sorry for the potentially silly question but will this work for cameras like the Canon HFS10??? Thanks...

Looks interesting. Does it work for a large number of clips in compressor? I have the 7D and compressor crashes if I try to convert using apple's presets.

This is another company that has a software called streamclip that is also free. It already has all the formats, links all of your clips into one clip if you desire, etc.

This is the link to a former post about this.

Hey Peter,

I'm trying to use this droplet with my 7D footage...which was set to 23.98p, 1080p.

I loaded the compressor file from your "5DtoFCP 1080p Realtime" Droplet into my custom presets folder in Compressor, and I edited the file so it was set to 23.98p instead of 25p, and then I generated a new droplet to use. I also edited the sequence file you provided so that it was 23.98.

The main difference between this codec and the original ProRes preset in Compressor, is the Frame Controls are set to "On", with the Retiming, Resize and Deinterlace filters set with various settings. My question is, are these settings optimized for 5D footage...or do the frame control settings work fine with 7D? Is there a specific reason you chose the Deinterlace to be on Fast instead of Better or Best? What do the Retiming and Resize filters do? If these settings are the ideal settings for 7D, then I'll just use this droplet with the adjusted fps...or if not, I suppose I can just make a droplet from the "ProRes 422 for Progressive Material" codec, if that would work better. I did notice the file size from a file compressed with your droplet was very slightly smaller than from the default Apple ProRes codec...I don't know if this affects quality or not. Any advice?

Thanks!

Trevor
