Problems trying to convert Canon 5D Mark II video
on Jan 22, 2014 at 4:59:38 am

Hi,
I'm trying to convert video shot on a Canon 5D Mark II into an editable format for FCP7. I heard MPEG Streamclip was a good program for this. BTW I heard this from the following Youtube video, in case this helps:





But when I try to convert the video, following these instructions, I keep getting an error that says 'can't open the compressor.' I'd greatly appreciate any advice, if anyone knows what may be causing this.
Thanks, Neil

Hi, Neil:

The best way for me is to use Log and Transfer in Final Cut so you can reconect everything.
Check Shane's tutorial for help

You need the Canon plug in.

Good luck.

Much appreciated Daniel. Great tutorial. The only challenge I'm having following your advice is downloading the EOS Movie Plugin-E1 for Final Cut Pro, from this link. I didn't see a 'download' button or anything here. I also tried to find it on the Canon page, and couldn't. Sorry if I'm just being dense here, or missing something obvious. Could anyone direct me or send me another link?
Thanks again either way.
Neil

THey cleverly hid it in menus. But now it's in the open here:

Thanks Shane! I was able to get there this time and everything worked great.
Thanks for the tip too, Warren. I'll keep that software in mind in the future.

Try the the free 5DtoRGB in the Apple app store. If that works for you, buy the Batch version so you can batch the footage. It is all I use. It is very fast and I find gives the best conversion.

Note: I have no affiliation with the company that makes the software. I am an end-user.
