EOS Final Cut Plugin on the way

EOS Final Cut Plugin on the way

High Definition video has now made its way from the high end cameras to many domestic digital SLR cameras. We recently covered a number of tips on making the most of HD video via your DSLR but Canon are about to make Final Cut users very happy with the release of an EOS plugin.

The Final Cut Plugin will enable quicker and easier editing of video created on an EOS digital camera in Final Cut Pro. A free Beta release of the plug-in will be available to download for testing and evaluation in March 2010.

The plugin entitled “EOS Movie Plugin-E1″;  is being developed to provide an even smoother workflow for EOS MOVIE users who edit using Apple’s Final Cut Pro software suite.

The plug-in will enable the ‘log and transfer’ of video footage from Canon’s EOS 5D Mark II, EOS 7D and EOS-1D Mark IV Digital SLR cameras – all of which offer full 1080p HD video recording. We are not sure at this point if the plugin will support the 500D or new 550D cameras.

The plug-in will convert EOS  footage to Apple’s high quality ProRes 422 codec at approximately twice the speed of Apple’s standard conversion. Additionally, users will also be able to add timecode, reel names and metadata to footage quickly and easily – further enhancing the experience of EOS MOVIE users when editing their footage.

We will keep you posted on the release of the beta next month.
