Editing Options For Canon 5D Mark II
on Jan 9, 2011 at 12:24:37 am

Is there any reason you could not use an AJA KONA on a PC to edit footage from this model Canon digital camera? Is anyone using this hardware to edit with their CANON with HD 1980 X 1080 footage?

Please share what you are using to edit with using this setup. I have heard of technical problems with getting this footage into a usable state.

KONAs are or Mac. XENA is the AJA line for PCs.
Those are cards for capturing and monitoring.
Having a KONA/XENA won't change your workflow with DSLRs footage.
You need to transcode the H264 files to Prores.

Actually XENA isn't made anymore, it has been re-branded on both Mac & PC as part of the KONA line now...

In terms of setup for editing 5D Mark II footage, what's your budget? People edit on less than iMovie machines all the way up to full-featured systems with input/output cards, massive TB's of RAID'ed storage, sometimes on multiple workstations... it all depends on the budget, the project, and what makes sense to your workflow.

Do you need a KONA card? No, but it does help as you can see your timeline real-time previewed on a broadcast monitor WHILE editing.

Must be nice working in the TETONS , do not muck around use Adobe CS5. I have been using Premiere Pro 1.5.1 for 6 years and use Premiere Elements to transcode to HDV /mpeg-2 as the old Adobe cannot handle the H.264 mov files correctly , you would find it hard to see any quality change from 1920 x 1080p to 1440 x 1080i in professional tape, the video is visually stunning in both formats so is the audio
