Import & Edit Canon T3i/600D MOV footages in Final Cut Pro




As one of the Canon's affordable digital SLR, the Canon EOS Rebel T3i/600D is able to shoot full hd videos with manual control over frame rate, exposure and sound. Have you ever got some problems when you tried to import Canon T3i/600 footages into Final Cut Pro 6/7 or FCP X for editing like these:

Q1: Canon 600D and FCP 7
I cannot find the plugin to get the Canon 600D to work with FCP 7 (for log and transfer). I can do it with footage from the Canon 5D. Has anyone had issue with the Canon 600D with log and transfer? Better still, does anyone know where I can get the 600D plugin for FCP 7?

Q2: Is the Canon EOS 600D easy to use with FCP X?
I am very new to DSLR video and am thinking about buying Canon's EOS 600D because the video seems so cinematic and the 60fps would be great for slow motion. I only have Final Cut Pro and was wondering if FCE would accomodate this DSLR. I've began my research but the info is so scattered. I've read the ProRes format is the way to go. Would the 60fps be a problem in FCP?

As far as I know, the Canon T3i/600D recorded videos are in H.264 MOV format, the H.264 codec is not good for FCP editing, it takes long time to render, and you can't edit the H.264 videos smoothly in Final Cut Pro 6/7 or FCP X. The best method to solve these problems is to transcode Canon EOS h.264 MOV footages to Apple ProRes 422 codec encoded MOV format, as it's best/natively supported by FCP. Below I will throw a quick guide up on how to convert/import Canon T3i/600D h.264 videos to Final Cut Pro with Apple ProRes codec.

Required Software:

Pavtube's HD Video Converter for Mac(currently on sale) - a top Canon H.264 MOV Converter for Mac users.



The Canon Video Converter is an easy to use yet professional Camcorder/Camera Video Converter on Mac OS X can not only transcode Canon 600D/T3i, Canon 550D/T2i, Canon EOS 7D, Canon EOS 5D mark iii, Canon EOS 5D mark ii, Canon EOS 1D mark iv, Canon EOS 50D, Canon EOS 60D, etc. to Apple ProRes codec videos for Mac editing, but also provide simple video editing functions for you. Besides, the program can also convert HD videos from HD camcorders or DVs (like JVC, Panasonic, Sony and Cannon) for editing in Final Cut Pro, Final Cut Pro X, Final Cut Express, iMovie, Avid, Adobe Premiere etc. Below is how.

How to Import & Edit Canon T3i/600D MOV footages in Final Cut Pro smoothly

1. Free Download and run the best Mac Canon EOS Video Converter for FCP (X) and drag Canon EOS 50D footages to the software. It's excellent Canon video converter which can convert nearly all canon cameras' videos to any formats you need, such as Apple Prores 422 MOV (FCP), Apple InterMediate Codec MOV(FCE/iMovie), QuickTime MOV, etc



2. click format bar to choose output format for use in FCP 6/7 for FCP X. click and choose Final Cut Pro -> Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov).

Some more helpful features of the app:
