Canon's EOS E1 video plug-in for Apple's Final Cut Pro
will be released
in March 2010. This new plug-in will allow simple and easy transfer of video content from Canon’s EOS DSLR cameras directly into Final Cut Pro. The EOS E1 video plug-in takes advantage of Final Cut Pro’s powerful Log and Transfer feature, which allows users to select and mark the video directly while it is still on the camera, add custom metadata and ingest the clips in the background so the editing can begin immediately.
The EOS E1 video plug-in will be a free download available at Apple - Downloads - Mac OS X - Final Cut Studio
. The plug-in is compatible with Final Cut Pro 6 or higher and currently supports Canon EOS 5D Mark II, EOS 7D and EOS 1D Mark IV cameras.
Note there is another plug-in called 5DtoFCP which converts existing EOS .mov files to Pro Res at 25 fps using Compressor. That is NOT the plug-in from Canon.
