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.
