The Canon EOS MOVIE Plugin-E1 for Final Cut Pro is a plug-in currently in development that is intended to allow footage from EOS DSLRs to be edited more quickly and easily in Final Cut Pro. The plug-in will be introduced in a free Beta release in March 2010.
Key features of the plug-in includes the enabling of the “log and transfer” of footage from the 5D Mark II, 7D and 1D Mark IV. Moreover, the plug-in converts Canon EOS DSLR footage to Apple’s ProRes 4:2:2 at twice the speed of what you get out of the box with Final Cut Pro. Adding timecode, reel names and metadata to footage will also be a faster and smoother task.
Stay tuned for updates on the availability of the EOS Movie Plugin-E1 for Final Cut Pro.
