I`m working on the post of a project filmed with the Canon EOS C500 in 1080p, I was told in the beginning that that camera delivers de 1080p clips in Apple Pro Ress, but now I`m told from various sources that it delivers them in a strange format, probably mxf, also told that a lot of people have had trouble transcoding those into apple pro res to edit them. I was wondering if anyone here could give me some advices or heads up about the most optimal workflow to edit those files in Final Cut Pro 7.
Regarding the internal underlying mechanics of the process, I am not completely sure about the process (I have an XF105 which uses the same process). See the following link with my query: http://forums.creativecow.net/thread/59/861607
Hey Mark, thank you so much for your help, both links were very helpful.
We got the C500 today and I tried to instal the software included on the camera, but it won`t let me, in the requirements it says it need Mac Os 10.6 or 10.7, I have 10.8, I thought as it is a more advanced OS it would have no problem but it does, when I try to install it it tells me the OS is not supported. Should I downgrade to 10.7?
Hello everyone, Ok use the Canon software to do the conversion, but to make the conforming? What do you use? Now I have a movie edited with proxies, but now I have to do the conforming but the canon software does not accept EDL. How could I do?
Sorry for my english
