Canon 7D Import Workflow in Avid Media Composer and Final Cut Pro

Avid Media Composer

1. Copy video files from 7D to computer hard drive

2. Use AMA (Avid Media Access) – link to files in Avid Media Composer (enable AMA first in settings)

3. Choose clips, set in and out points, and create sub-clips (this will save space and time)

4. Transcode the files to DNxHD codec (right click on file clip, choose consolidate/transcode)

Final Cut Pro Workflow

1. Copy video files from 7D to computer hard drive

2. Compress H.264 to Apple ProRes 422 (HQ) in Mpeg Streamclip or Apple Compressor

3. Import files into Final Cut Pro

Tips:

Before mass importing, compressing and editing, always use one clip to run a test in both tools and compare the difference
