Getting 1080p .MOV files from Canon EOS 100D/Rebel SL1 to work in After Effects CS6

Summary: This guide will help you easily transcode Canon EOS 100D/Rebel SL1 1080p MOV files to After Effects CS6 for editing.

When I got a hands-on sneak peek of the new 18-megapixel Canon EOS Rebel SL1 digital SLR last month, I was told that the "SL" in the model name stood for "super lightweight." And that it is. The new Lilliputian Rebel SL1 feels as light as most compact system cameras -- and nearly as small -- especially with a Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM pancake lens attached to the front of it. Clearly, the burgeoning, mirrorless CSC market is what Canon is aiming to take on with the fully mirrored SL1.

Canon Rebel SL1 is also called EOS 100D, I would rather use real dedicated video camera to shoot movies as Canon EOS 100D/Rebel SL1 can shoot 1080p30 video recordings. But recently I have encounter an problem with "importing Canon EOS 100D/Rebel SL1 1080p MOV to Adobe After Effects CS6" like someone asked in the forum:

Q1. I have a Canon 100D and wanted to edit HD video in Adobe After Effects CS6. Every time I try to import MOV into after effects it doesn't support it or something. Why? Was I supposed to do something else?

Q2. I am a beginner in using Adobe After Effects CS6 with Rebel SL1 footages. I am trying to import files (videos) with extensions like MOV. They will not import; After Effects doesn't support that file type according to the program. I am non-pro, it's home use. Any insights?

Q3. I have a weird problem with importing MOV files into Adobe After Effects CS6. When I try to import my MOV file, it says the file type is unsupported. I don't get it, can anyone help me? It was working fine as I was using it to play around with video I recorded by my new Canon SL1/100D on QuickTime , so think it was because of something I did.

What is the main reason?

Much to the disappointment of new filmmakers that they are not familiar with the 1080p .mov format, as MOV is just a container file and 1080p is in high quality. As the incompatibile codec, the footage created with Canon EOS 100D/Rebel SL1 could not be imported to After Effect, including the latest After Effect CS6 unless you convert Canon 100D/SL1 MOV to After Effects compatible MPG (MPEG-1. MPEG -2, MPEG -4), WMV, MOV.

With a professional and top MOV to After Effects converting program called Pavtube HD Video Converter for Mac, you can not only convert Canon EOS 100D/Rebel SL1 1080p MOV to MPG, WMV,mov to import Canon EOS 100D/Rebel SL1 MOV to After Effects, but also allows you to adjust video resolution, frame rate, bitrate, encoder and audio sample rate, channel, bitrate, encoder to get a better vision according to your needs. You may choose to cut off black sides by crop feature, split a time length segment by clip and tweak saturation, brightness, contrast by effects. It is 100& clean without any virus, adware and pop-ups.  Below is a quick guide of converting Canon EOS 100D/Rebel SL1 1080p mov for editing in AE CS6.

Step one: Download
Download MOV to AE CS6 Converter, and click to install.

Note: this is a Mac oriented solution. For Windows users the Pavtube Studio offers alternative HD Video Converter for PC, which is very similar to the Mac HD Video Converter. 

Step two: Load videos  

After launching the 
Mac MOV to AE CS6 Converter. Click "Add Video" and browse to a Canon .mov clip and the software will add it to file list. Repeat the operation to load multiple movvideos. Or you may click the "Add Folder" button to import all the .mov files in the MOV file structure. 

Step three:  Select proper output format  
Click on "Format" and choose "Adobe Premiere/Sony Vegas> MPEG-2 (*.mpg)" format as the best codec for editing Canon EOS 100D/Rebel SL1 MOV in Adobe After Effect CS6

In the drop down list of profiles, select After Effects format WMV or MOV.

Step four. Settings.
Click on "Settings" to redefine output quality. You can also set a different video resolution (1920x1080/1440x1080/1280x720/720x480), frame rate (24p/30p), bitrate, audio channels, etc. For users who would like to retain exactly the same settings (without any quality loss), set target settings the same to source video. 

Step five: Start conversion

Click "Convert" to start transcode Canon EOS 100D/Rebel SL1 1080p MOV for After Effect CS6 editing on Mac.

After conversion click "Open" to find .mpg videos and import converted .mpg files to Adobe After Effect CS6 for editing.

Now you can successfully handle Canon EOS 100D/Rebel SL1 1080p mov file in After Effects well. Just have a try!

Sony PMW-300, the EX3 replacement has finally arrived! With XDCAM 422 and XAVC!

Ever since the launch of the PMW-200 people have been asking about whether the EX3 would also be replaced. With the EX3 being such a popular camera it wasn’t really a case of “if” but more of a case of “when”.

So here it is, the PMW-300. Like the PMW-200 this is an evolution of the EX1R/EX3 cameras with many similarities but with that all important 50Mb/s 422 broadcast XDCAM codec. Like the EX3 it has 1/2″ sensors and it uses the same EX3 type lens mount, so can use the same lenses as the EX3. As well as the 14x 1/2″ zoom there is also now a new 16x zoom. In addition via adapters you can use both 1/2″ hot-shoe lenses and 2/3″ B4 lenses (1.4x magnification). You can also use an adapter to use Nikon DSLR lenses (5x magnification) for long focal length shots, so it’s sure to be popular with wildlife and natural history shooters. This is almost certainly the smallest self contained broadcast quality camcorder that can take interchangeable lenses.

The shape and design of the camera is different to the upward curving EX3. The body is a very functional rectangular shape that sits up against your shoulder like the EX3. It incorporates extending flip down shoulder/chest pad for added stability. The viewfinder design is new, it has a higher resolution panel than the one in the original EX3 and is closer in design to the PMW-350 or PMW-F5 LCD viewfinder. It’s mounted to the body with a rotating arm, that allows about 4″ of forward, backward and height adjustment so adapting the camera for use with a full shoulder mount should be quite straightforward.

As this camera uses essentially the same sensors as the EX3, sensitivity and dynamic range will be little different. But a new noise reduction system that Sony are calling 3DNR which should offer lower noise especially in low light situations.

At launch the camera will have the Sony XDCAM codec built in, offering 50Mb/s 422, 35Mb/s 420 as well as both IMX and DVCAM in standard definition. So a great range of codec choices out of the box. Next year you’ll be able to add the new XAVC codec as an option. This will be the Long GoP version of the codec announced at NAB and also coming as an option to the PMW-400. Throw in features like Genlock, RCP remote control and not only is this a great camera for use in the field but it also becomes an interesting option for small or low cost studio applications.

For hooking up to external devices you have the usual HDSDI and HDMI outputs as well as Firewire/ILink for the HDV and DVCAM modes.

I’m quite sure this camera will be as successful as the EX3, maybe more so thanks to the out-of-the-box broadcast codec and ability to add the 10 bit XAVC codec next year. I hope to get hold of one very soon for a full review, as soon as I do I’ll let you know more about it.

The world's first Android-based mirrorless camera- Samsung Galaxy NX Hands-on

It's long been rumored, and it's finally happened: the interchangeable-lens camera has just stepped into the modern, connected world and become a smart device!

After last year's Galaxy Camera, Samsung split in two directions. It went closer to the phone with the Galaxy S 4 Zoom, shrinking the form factor (and some of the specs) for something that closer approximates a pocket-friendly device, and it got serious about interchangeable-lens cameras. 

Now Samsung has announced the Galaxy NX: the world's first mirrorless interchangeable lens camera running the Android operating system. The Galaxy NX takes a 20.3 megapixel, SLR-style mirrorless camera and adds 3G, 4G LTE and Wi-Fi, connectivity and Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean). The camera sports a gigantic 4.8" HD LCD touchscreen - with which you'll control nearly all camera functions. The Galaxy NX will be available sometime this summer for an undisclosed price.

Samsung NX, not surprisingly, draws much from the company's experience not only with smartphones -- a section of the market in which it has a dominant presence -- but also from 2012's fixed-lens Galaxy Camera. Like that model, the Galaxy NX is a quad-core device that runs Google's Linux-based Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system, along with built-in 3G / 4G LTE and Wi-Fi wireless connectivity.

Beneath the skin, the Samsung Galaxy NX is pretty similar to the Samsung NX300, in terms of its imaging hardware, using the same 20.3 megapixel image processor and DRIMe IV branded image processor. On the rear is a huge 4.8-inch high definition LCD panel and SVGA electronic viewfinder. Sensitivity ranges to ISO 25,600 equivalent, and the Samsung Galaxy NX is capable of swift 8.6 frames per second burst shooting.
 Samsung has yet to announce pricing or availability for the Galaxy NX, which the company has just revealed at a global press conference. Nor has it yet revealed which carriers will be offering the Samsung Galaxy NX in the US market, or overseas.

We've already been hands-on with this extremely interesting compact system camera, though -- so if you want to know more, you'll want to read our Samsung Galaxy NX review for first impressions.

PMW-EX3 camcorder records 1920 x 1080 HD images using the "MPEG-2 Long GOP" codec, which conforms to the MPEG-2 MP@HL compression standard, and the recordings are made as data files in the "MP4" format. "MPEG-2 Long GOP" is a mature codec which enables users to record stunning-quality HD video and audio with highly efficient, reliable data compression, but it is not an editing codec, so it is a big problem when loading or importing Sony PMW-EX3 mp4 clips into your Mac system.

1. Download and install Pavtube iMedia Converter for Mac. This converter can help you transcode Sony PMW-EX3 mp4 video to FCP, Avid, iMovie, Premiere Pro, FCE.

2. Launch this Sony MP4 to Mac Converter, and import the EX3 recorded mp4 footages.

For editing EX-3 MP4 video on Mac, you can choose Apple ProRes 422 for FCP, DNxHD for Avid, AIC codec for iMovie, FCE, ProRes/MOVfor Premiere, etc.

4. You can click settings button in the main interface to adjust the output parameters, such as resolution, frame rate, etc, customize the parameters as you want.

5. Click convert button to start.

Working Natively with Sony PDW-700 XDCAM HD MXF in Final Cut Pro X

This article shows you the best solution for convertting XDCAM HD MXF files from Sony PDW-700 to a file format that is editable/supported by FCP X.
PDW-700 camcorder is a popular member of Sony's XDCAM family, equipped with three 2/3-inch type CCDs – a newly developed "Power HAD FX" progressive CCD with 1920 x 1080 effective pixels. It also offers very high quality HD recording at a data rate of up to 50Mbps using the MPEG-2 4:2:2P@HL compression, and provides multi-format recording flexibility including 1080i, 720P and SD, with HD/SD conversion and cross conversion between 1080i and 720P.

The XDCAM series takes recording to the next level, utilizing non-linear single and dual-layer optical Blue Laser technology. Less time logging, capturing and digitizing footage allows videographers to move seamlessly between acquisition and post-production. However, Sony PDW700 XDCAM camcorders' video format is MXF, using this MXF footage on Mac is a big problem. If you try to import PDW-700 HD MXF footages to Final Cut Pro X for further editing, you may meet some incompatible issues.

Sony has recently released version 2.9 of the XDCAM Transfer Software, which adds additional features including the ability to write back MXF files to the Clips folder with the PDW-U1. You can learn how to import XDCAM Disc footage directly into the Final Cut Pro editing system with XDCAM Transfer here.

Anyway, this MXF file with MPEG HD422 codec is a not standard editing format for FCP X. In case that you have more unexpected problem, you are suggested to convert Sony PDW700 MXF video to FCP X compatible format like ProRes 422 codec. As ProRes codec is a common format developed by Apple, ProRes 422 is intended for non-linear editing with Apple Final Cut Pro. They retain higher quality when you convert Sony PDW700 MXF to FCP X using Apple Prores codec. Below is an easy way for you to import Sony PDW700 XDCAM HD MXF to Final Cut Pro X on Mac.

1.Download Pavtube MXF Converter for Mac. This is excellent software which can help you convert Sony PDW700 XDCAM MXF video to ProRes for FCP X. Besides, it supports many other formats for output.

2.Install and launch this Sony XDCAM MXF to FCP Converter, import the MXF video you want to convert.

3.Choose the best output format for Final Cut Pro . Click on "Format" and choose "Final Cut Pro >>Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov)". It is the best codec and format for editing XDCAM MXF in FCP X.

4.You can click settings to adjust the output parameters, such as resolution, bitrate and frame rate.

5.You can click edit button to edit MXF video, such as deinterlace, denoise, mute, volume up and crop.

6.Click convert button to start transcoding MXF to Apple ProRes for Final Cut Pro X and import the converted video file into FCP X.

Reviews from customers of Pavtube Media Magician and Pavtube Media Magician for Mac:

1. Works well on Windows 8. Successfully transcoded a .TiVo file to MP4 format.

- D.C.

2. Runs flawlessly on Win7. It does lots of things Moviemaker can’t do, like changing brightness etc. The conversions can be very useful as well. For me it is good to have. Thanks

- Sepp

3. …The benefit of lossless trimming for me is that often I set up one or more cameras at an event and let them roll, sometimes for hours. This is done in anticipation that something interesting might occur in that camera’s field of view in the next couple of hours. Out of all those hours there might only be a few minutes I really want to keep. This results in enormous files with only a few seconds of really good footage. Ideally I wish to keep only the good bits and delete the rest but so far I’ve found no way to extract the bits I want to keep and delete the rest without any loss of video quality…

- Doug Thompson

4. Installed fine on Mac 10.7 and Win 7 ultimate 64.

- Beth

5. Pavtube Media Magican! Perfect for my use. I shot movie of my younger daughter few years ago. And with today I succeed to take still pictures out of the movie. And same time I edited mistakes out of the movie. I highly recommend it for Mac users!

- Jari, Lahti, Finland

6. Very nice program. I can now leave my PC and some of the editing software I’ve purchased over the years and now use my Mac with Media Magician. I just converted a bunch of Thanksgiving and Christmas videos and added some cool effects as well.

- Trey, Dallas, Texas

7. A very good program, I was able to import an AVI file, crop it to size, then imported an MP4 file, added the two files together play them without rendering and exported to an MKV file within minutes. Highly recommended.

Now get this "Lossless MTS M2TS Editor and Converter 2013"!
