7D import
on Mar 3, 2011 at 1:21:46 pm

Due to image constraints on uni computers, I cannot install the EOS 7D log and transfer plug in for Final Cut.
What is the best way to get them into FCP?
I have them in bins already via basic import but they are dropping frames. Do I export via compressor into pro res?
thanks in advance.

I'd do the conversion directly in Compressor rather than using FCP to export with Compressor, then import those versions into FCP.

You can't import them in Bins first 'before' you convert them to ProRes.
They are dropping because you can't edit with these files in FCP/
Now you have the original H264 versions in your project. Which you DON'T want.

Convert them to ProRes using
a. Compressor ( already on your mac)
b. Mpeg Streamclip
c. Log and transfer 7d plugin.

You can always download the plugin or mpeg streamclip on your home computer.
Put it on a USB stick and then install on your editing station.

Search these forums for 5D/7D workflows in fcp

I will also mention that IF you have Adobe Media Encoder and FCP on the same system, you can background transcode to ProRes by creating a watch folder in AME. It's a 64-bit native application so can use all of your CPU's and RAM.

Good luck with whatever you use.

Most workflows include the plug in but the uni computers won't install them until the new semester so I'm trying to find the best way round it for the students. Compressor it is then!
Thanks for your help.
