Canon first unveiled its EOS Movie Plug-in-E1 for Final Cut Pro in August last year. The custom-developed software application is designed to provide quicker and easier editing of EOS Movie footage in Apple's Final Cut Pro software suite. The plug-in converts EOS Movie footage to Apple's high-quality ProRes 422 codec.
Now, Canon is planning to release an update to the plug-in that 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," says Canon.
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," claims the firm.
The update - EOS Movie Plug-in-E1 for Final Cut Pro version 1.2 - will be available to download for free from 25 April.
Earlier this week, Canon announced it has signed a partnership with Technicolor to collaborate in the development of a suite of creative tools for cinematographers "to facilitate greater usability and integration of Canon EOS DSLR cameras into the motion picture and television production pipeline."
