Convert 5D Mark III h.264 footage to ProRes 422 for FCP 7

In this guide, you will learn how to convert Canon EOS 5D Mark III mov to Apple ProRes on Mac OS X so that you can smoothly import/edit 5D Mark III videos in Final Cut Pro 7 without rendering time.

As the latest in its enthusiast full-frame 5D series and successor to the popular EOS 5D Mark II, Canon EOS 5D Mark III has been tested to be a great camcorder by a number of truly brilliant photographers across the globe who prefer to use it daily in all sorts of disciplines and locations, and attracted much attention even since it has not came out to the market. Based around a 22MP full-frame sensor, it can shoot 6 frames per second and features a 61-point AF system much like the 5D Mark III. It can capture 1080p movies at 24, 25 or 30 fps and offers high quality intraframe (All-I) video compression amongst a host of movie-related improvements.



Everything is good but the only problem, as many Canon DSLRs users may have, is the incompatibility which will jump out when you want to ingest Canon EOS 5D Mark III 1080p MOV files to Final Cut Pro 7 for editing on Mac. They will hit a snag in the form of a “contains unsupported media… invalid directory” error. You can import your files with Log and Transfer but you have to back up the ENTIRE CARD STRUCTURE from the beginning.

Obviously, what matters is not the MOV fomat, since it is fine while playing with QT player on Mac, but the H.264 codec. It is a highly compressed codec, great for playing/streaming videos. But as for editing H.264 MOV in FCP, it is not such a suitable choice. In order to make Canon 5D Mark III footages editable in FCP 7, you have to convert H.264 MOV to ProRes 422, the codec which is proved to be the most compatible one with FCP 7.

You are provided with five options, including Apple ProRes 422 HQ (*.mov), Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov), Apple ProRes 422 (LT) (*.mov), Apple ProRes 422 (Proxy) (*.mov) and ProRes 4444 (*.mov). Here listed the main difference of the five ProRes codecs.

a. ProRes 422 (HQ): offers the utmost possible quality for 4:2:2 or 4:2:0 sources and provides target data rate of approximately 220 Mbps and higher quality than Apple ProRes 422;

b. ProRes 422: provides target data rate of approximately 145 Mbps and higher quality than Apple ProRes 422 (LT);

c. ProRes 422 (LT): provides roughly 70 percent of the data rate of Apple ProRes 422 (thus, smaller file sizes than Apple ProRes 422) and higher quality than ProRes 422 (Proxy);

d. ProRes 422 (Proxy): provides roughly 30 percent of the data rate of Apple ProRes 422 and high-quality offline editing at the original frame size, frame rate, and aspect ratio;

e. ProRes 4444: offers the utmost possible quality for 4:4:4 sources and roughly 50 percent higher than the data rate of Apple ProRes 422 (HQ).

A top Video Converter for Canon 5DM3 and FCP 7 users should be developed with all the five options. Here recommended the best H.264 MOV to ProRes Converter for Mac in that it is not only capable of converting H.264 MOV files to Apple ProRes codecs, all 5 ProRes codecs included, but also able to rip your BD/DVD disc for editing.

What's more, you can make your work easier with some useful editing functions, including joining imported clips together for easy importing, trimming section of your file, adding text/image/video watermarks to your original files, replacing audio tracks, etc. Follow the Three-step conversion and you are capable of importing/editing Canon EOS 5D Mark III files in Final Cut Pro 7.

Three-step Guide for transcoding Canon EOS 5D Mark III H.264 MOV to Apple ProRes for FCP 7

Step 1: Free download and run the best Mac Canon MOV to ProRes Converter for FCP, and drag Canon EOS 5D Mark III H.264 MOV files to the software.

Step 2: Select output format for Final Cut Pro. You are advised to choose “Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov)”or “Apple ProRes 422 HQ (*.mov)” format.


Due to the difference in the compresstion standard of AVCHD and ProRes 422, the converted files are significantly larger than the original ones. If you prefer smaller file size, please choose “Apple ProRes 422 (LT) (*.mov)” instead.

Since ProRes 422 (LT), ProRes 422 (Proxy), and ProRes 4444 have not been added to FCP 6, you’d better not set one of them as output if you happen to edit your H.264 files in FCP 6 before upgrading FCP 7.

Tips:

1. Settings- click to set video resolution(1920×1080/1440×1080/1280×720/720×480), bitrate(from 1Mbps to 20Mbps), frame rate (24p/30p)

Best way to import Sony Alpha NEX-5T MTS to iMovie & FCE

This article teaches you how to easily convert and import Sony Alpha NEX-5T MTS footage into iMovie or Final Cut Express for further editing on Mac (OS X 10.9 Mavericks included).

Sony brought its NEX mirrorless camera series into the hybrid autofocus age, with the debut of the NEX-5R. Just ten months later, that camera gets a more modest refresh, with the arrival of the Sony NEX-5T.



Sony Alpha NEX-5T can record Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixel; 1080p/1080i) movies at a rate of either 60 frames per second, 24 frames per second, or 60 interlaced fields per second. (In some markets, the 60p/60i rates are replaced with 50p/50i rates, and the 24p rate with 25p.) You can also opt for lower-res 1440 x 1080 and 640 x 480 movies, with a fixed rate of 30p (25p on overseas models).

At the maximum resolution, movies are saved using AVCHD version 2.0 (MPEG-4 AVC / H.264) compression with AC-3 stereo Dolby Digital audio. At lower resolutions, movies are saved with MP4 compression and MPEG-4 AAC-LC stereo audio. Most users would like to make some editing with MTS footage from Sony Alpha NEX-5T, but problems came up as AVCHD is not a friendly format for editing in iMovie and FCE.

To solve the problem, you'd better transcode Sony NEX-5T AVCHD mts footages to AIC MOV for iMovie and FCE first. And here you need some third-party program to help. Pavtube MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac is an ideal choice for me. It works very well in the past months and also you can choose to output the video as 1080p or other size. It can convert Sony NEX-5T AVCHD MTS video to AIC codec .mov format, and then you can edit Sony Alpha NEX-5T MTS files natively in iMovie and FCE on Mac (OS X 10.9 Mavericks included).

Step 1. Free Download the Converter, install and run. And then import Sony NEX-5T recorded mts videos to the MTS to AIC converter.



PS: It's an excellent Sony AVCHD Converter for Mac which can also transcode MTS to an editable format like ProRes for FCP, AIC for iMovie/FCE, MPEG-2 for Adobe; to a playable format for putting on portable devices or uploading to YouTube.

Step 2. Click the format bar, and move mouse cursor to "iMovie and Final Cut Express > Apple Intermediate Codec(AIC) (*.mov)" as output format.



Step 3. Click convert button in the main interface to start transcoding Sony Alpha NEX-5T mts files to AIC fro editing in iMovie and FCE on mac.

Some more helpful features of the Sony MTS to AIC Converter:

1. Settings- click to set video resolution(1920×1080/1440×1080/1280×720/720×480), bitrate(from 1Mbps to 20Mbps), frame rate (24p/30p)

2. Editor (next to "Add" icon)- click to set deinterlace, denoise, mute, volume up, trim, crop, etc.

After the workflow, you can go to the output folder to find the converted video files. Now you are free to import/edit Sony Alpha NEX-5T AVCHD files in iMovie and FCE under Mac (OS X 10.9 Mavericks included) without problems.

Thank you.
In fact, MXF is a self-container format which is unacceptable by various non-linear editing systems (NLE), like Pinnacle Studio, Sony Vegas, Avid Media Composer, Premiere, Movie Studio Platinum 12 etc. So to import the MXF files from Panasonic AG-HPX171E P2 camera to Movie Studio Platinum 12 for editing, the easy workaround is to transcode MXF files to Movie Studio compatible video formats.

Part I: Transcode AG-HPX171E MXF to MPEG-2 – native editing format for Movie Studio Platinum 12

1. Backup Panasonic AG-HPX171E camcorder MXF videos from P2 HD card to local HDD with full P2 directory preserved, as both the video and audio are saved separately as .mxf files.

Notes:  If your are a P2 MXF camcorder user, you will find from the P2 MXF recording, video audio files are separated in different folders. Also, it’s no difficult to find one video will have four audio tracks. For archiving, you need to keep the whole structure of video and audio.   

2. Run Pavtube MXF Converter. Click "Add Video" or "Add from folder" icon to load MXF files from AG-HPX171E.


 

3. Choose "MPEG-2 (*.mpg)" as target format from "Adobe Premiere/Sony Vegas" option.
