Canon announces latest update for EOS Movie Plug-in-E1 for Final Cut Pro


United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, 8th April 2011 – Canon today announces the latest update for EOS Movie Plug-in-E1 for Final Cut Pro – the company’s custom-developed software application that provides quicker and easier editing of EOS Movie footage in Apple’s Final Cut Pro software suite.



Launching to coincide with the start of the 2011 National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show in Las Vegas, EOS Movie Plug-in-E1 for Final Cut Pro version 1.2 will make the importing of EOS Movie files even easier, allowing users to transfer files from any folder, without needing to mirror the folder structure on the camera itself. The update also enables smoother importing from Canon’s EOS 7D, EOS 5D Mark II and EOS-1D Mark IV models, allowing users to import footage without requiring the THM file generated by the camera.

Originally launched in February 2010, EOS Movie Plug-in-E1 for Final Cut Pro is designed to quickly and seamlessly convert EOS Movie footage from Canon’s leading range of EOS DSLR cameras to Apple’s high-quality ProRes 422 codec. The plug-in allows users to convert footage at approximately twice the speed of Apple’s standard conversion, creating a smoother workflow for the rapidly growing number of videographers shooting HD video content on DSLR cameras.

EOS Movie Plug-in-E1 for Final Cut Pro version 1.2 will be available to download for free from 25th April 2011.

Re: Canon updates EOS plugin for FCP

Thanks Canon for doing Apple's job!

I still don't get why FCP needs plug-ins to be provided from the camera manufactures to make "log & transfer" work.

I think when there is a new file based camera released, the camera guys should release a plug-in ASAP for early adopters & then work with Apple, so that the next FCP update that comes out has the new log & transfer plug-in built into FCP. Is that too much to ask?

Maybe the next FCP will do this natively, at least I don't have long to wait to find out about that.

Re: Canon updates EOS plugin for FCP

As a wedding videographer I mix the tapes from xha1 and canon dslr footage sometimes. I thought (obviously wrong) that using the canon mov file in it's native format was better than converting to app pro res. So, with this plug-in are you guys seeing any change in the image, quality wise?

Thanks, Dawn

Re: Canon updates EOS plugin for FCP

Assuming you are not using one of the proxy or low res Prores formats, converting the camera files to Prores is the standard workflow. Prores is capable of storing much higher image quality than the native format so it's an uprez when you do that and there shouldn't be any loss. The advantage is that the Prores format is a format designed for editing whereas the AVCHD native format is less so. Using a format designed for editing translates to snappier editing performance, CC, rendering..... you get the idea.
