Canon 5d / 7d FCP Plugin released!
So this isn’t new news, but I seem to have missed it.
We all remember when Canon announced that they were releasing a fcp plugin for ingesting dslr footage. Then we waited. and waited. They finally released it! You can go here to download it straight from canon. Select your os and you are on your way!
Once it is downloaded and installed, restart fcp. Now you have the option to select a compact flash card in the log and transfer menu. My setup is converting to prores HQ and saving to the capture scratch. Pretty nice!
I would like to do a mpeg streamclip comparison, because I have heard some grumblings about how good / efficient fcp is in comparison. Even if it needs some work done, it is a big step in the right direction!
