exporting video from Canon GL2 into Final Cut 7
on Jan 4, 2012 at 2:08:52 am

Hey gang.......

Im beginning a series of short films and I have some questions....

#1. I am using a Canon GL2. How can I make sure to get the best import into Final Cut and how do I export out of Final Cut Pro with the highest quality.

#2. Some of my films will also use a Canon 5D, how can I make these two cameras fit the same format. 4x3 or 16x9?

#3. Ive never edited GL2 footage and 5D footage into the same piece, are there any tricks in the timeline or settings to make this flow smoothly?

#4. If I want to have Final Cut export to a separate monitor, how is that done?

I know there is lots there and I might come across as naive, but I sincerely appreciate any help. Thanks for your time.

With all due respect, Googling would have gotten you some of your answers quicker than waiting for a response.

#1. Capture DV or DV anamorphic, depending on what you shoot. If you shoot 16:9, capture anamorphic. Read the GL2 manual for more info. Edit in DV and export DV.

#2. This answer has several factors. Where are you delivering this video to? Web, DVD? What is the majority of the footage, HD or DV? Really depends.

#4. You can search and read the FCP 7 manual online.

Some good resources for learning are Ken Stone's site and Larry Jordan's site.
