Canon camera video converter-Convert Canon MXF/MVI/MTS/MOV to ProRes/AIC

As a professional multinational corporation that specializes in the manufacture of imaging and optical products, Canon has been manufacturing and distributing digital cameras since 1984, starting with the RC-701. The PowerShot series (known as IXUS series in Japan) was then launched after the RC series for photographers at any level. The PowerShot camera like SX 200IS produces MVI_.files which are not recognized by some video editing and DVD building programs, e.g. ArcSoft ShowBiz DVD 2 program for authoring DVD’s/home movies. In that case, users have to convert the MVI to AVI or WMV files so that the MVI movie clips taken with a PowerShot camera can be used seamlessly in the DVD program.

Canon also developed the EOS series of DSLR cameras (digital single-lens reflex cameras) which includes high-end professional models, such as the latest Canon 5D Mark III and Canon Rebel T4i (EOS 650D). Canon claims that the Canon EOS Camera System is the most complete Single Lens Reflex (SLR) camera system in the world. Whether you are a beginner or advanced professional looking for a digital camera, the EOS System takes your photography to the next level. The EOS DSLR cameras usually shoot videos in H.264 MOV format, which is not a friendly format for most video editors. In order to generate suitable files for video editing software, you are strongly recommended to use Canon camera Video Converter to convert EOS MOV to Apple ProRes for Final Cut Pro 6/7 and FCP X, transcode H.264 MOV to AIC for iMovie and Final Cut Express, render MOV clips to DNxHD for Avid Media Composer and so on.

An additional product line new to Canon is Cinema EOS camera series. The launch of the Cinema EOS System marks Canon’s full-fledged entry into the digital high-resolution production industry. The EOS C300 camera records footage in .MXF format, which is a problematic file type either for playback or edit. Here comes Canon camera video converter again to handle these MXF clips. Simply select your MXF source material, choose the output format, and click Convert. The Canon MXF Converter will take care of the rest.

More than digital cameras and Cinema EOS cameras, Canon also produces consumer digital camcorders and professional camcorders. The consumer digital camcorders deliver superior image quality and performance and include models like VIXIA HF S10, VIXIA HF S100, and VIXIA HF100. These AVCHD camcorders in VIXIA series capture videos with .MTS and .M2TS file extensions. In attempting of adding Canon MTS shootings to an Android Tablet or Apple iPad for viewing, you can use a Canon MTS Converter to encode MTS to MP4. To import loose MTS clips out of its original file structure to iMovie or FCP for editing, you need change MTS to AIC or Apple ProRes.

As for professional camcorders, Canon XF-Series Professional Camcorders XF100, XF105, XF300 and XF305 are almost perfect. “Whether used as a companion to the XF305 or XF300, or as a stand-alone camcorder, the XF105 and XF100 are geared for a wide range of applications where high image quality, extreme portability and efficient workflow are of the utmost importance. And with true stereoscopic 3-D production and infrared recording capabilities, they allow users to expand into new markets,” stated Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Consumer Imaging Group, Canon U.S.A. The XF Series professional camcorders record footage in .MXF format, if you are new to the format, you couldn’t realize that it would be so problematic to get the MXF video into computers without using the Canon software. Yes Canon does offer XF utility to help users import MXF footage to FCP 7 and other video editing programs, but this only comes with very limited success, because that piece of XF utility software only expects to see compact flash cards (CF cards) straight from the camcorder and doesn’t seem to work very well with folders on a HDD, not to mention separate MXF clips. Fortunately, the conversion formats generated by Canon Video Camera Converter (here works as a Canon MXF Converter) would fit with the following programs:

On Mac: Final Cut Pro (FCP 6/7, FCP X), Final Cut Express, iMovie, Avid Media Composer, iDVD, QuickTime, etc.

On Windows PC: Magix Movie, Avid Studio, Windows Movie Maker, Sony Vegas, Adobe Premiere Pro, Premiere Elements, and more.

Definitely, there are a great many choices currently available in video cameras/camcorders, which one to choose is totally depending on one’s needs and budget. As for Canon Camera Video Converter, it will continue to have its place for both amateur film makers and professional videographers (Read more about Canon Camera File Transcode at Pavtube Canon Column).

Convert Canon Vixia XA10 AVCHD videos to AIC/Prores for iMovie/FCP

Featuring full 1920 x 1080 HD video captures, along with two XLR inputs on the handle and a very small footprint, the Canon Vixia XA10 is a force to be reckoned with. This camcorder with the smallest weight for expedition style productions indeed generates truly eye-catching full HD 1080p videos using an AVCHD code and in .mts extension. As we all know, structure of files that HD camcorder generates is similar to blu-ray disc file structure (including BDAV, Playlist, STREAM…. folders). Therefore, it is not an easy task to play and edit AVCHD recordings on Mac OS computer. Moreover, when I got this camcorder on hand, ImageBroswer which provided by most Canon camcorders was not found in Canon XA10 package. This makes it tougher to edit and play XA 10 footages.

Thus, how to play and edit Canon AVCHD videos on Mac OS computer? This issue is highly concerned by Mac users who own Canon XA10 camcorder.

1. Free solution to play AVCHD videos via Quicktime on Mac OS computer?
No doubt, Apple default media player-Quicktime is not capable of playing AVCHD videos. Maybe someone recommends VLC Media Player for Mac which indeed supports AVCHD videos playback. But this is not my choice because when I play 1080p videos via VLC Player, my computer becomes quite slow. And my computer becomes so noisy. Personally, this is resulted from its high CPU utilization.

So the best way to play AVCHD videos is to convert them to Quicktime MOV video. This makes videos much easier for playing and editing as well as highly saving my HD space. Here a free app named Pavtube Free MTS M2TS Converter is highly recommended to achieve this task. I found this app from Mac app store top charts. I am highly impressed with its easy to use and intuitive interface. Just search Pavtube in App Store, free download and install this app with inputting your Apple ID. Next step is to load .mts videos directly from your camcorder or your hard disk, choose Quicktime MOV as output. Finally hit big convert button to start this conversion. Once the conversion is completed, output movies with high quality will be perfectly play via Quicktime. When I select the mode which records 1080/50i videos, this free Mac OS AVCHD to Quicktime MOV Converter can help me remove these interlacing videos so that Quicktime gives me a clearer and sharper image.

2. Efficient way to edit Canon Vixia XA10 AVCHD in iMovie/ Final Cut Pro
For Mac users, iMovie and FCP are there favorite video editing software. iMovie 09 has claimed that it supports AVCHD videos. But only Apple Intel-based Mac computers (MacBookPro Laptops, iMac or Mac Pro Towers) can work well with your AVCHD footages.

If you have Power PC G5 Macs or previous version of iMovie, the only solution is to transcode MTS videos to AIC videos which iMovie likes most. Pavtube MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac (the upgraded version of Pavtube Free MTS M2TS Converter) gives you a hand to achieve this task. This camcorder video converter provides “iMovie/Final Cut Express-> Apple Intermediate Codec (*.mov)” output which is iMovie preferred video format. I got the quality conversion which I am looking for. The output AIC video with high quality can be easily imported and editing in iMovie without any rendering and interruption

If you need professional editing features, Final Cut Pro is your premium choice. Final Cut Pro X is the most up-to-date app for AVCHD support. As long as you have camcorder on hand, you can connect it to your Mac and directly import AVCHD footages into FCP for further editing. This project is perfect if you do not mind its long-time rendering time. However, if you are not patient enough or you just have only MTS files in your HDD without the other corresponding files in the BDMV folder structure, the recommended project is to encode XA10 MTS footages into Apple ProRes which FCP prefers. Pavtube MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac mentioned above gives you the ultimate solution. And the following screenshot shows all available Prores codecs. Personally, Apple Prores 422 and Apple Prores 422 (LT) are highly recommended because both can help you save much HD space.

Canon MVI Video Converter-Convert MVI to AVI,MVI to WMV,MVI to DVD

“I have a Canon camera that produces MVI._ files which are not recognized by the ArcSoft ShowBiz DVD 2 program that I use for building DVD”s/home movies. I need to be able to convert the MVI to AVI or WMV files so that the movie clips I take can be used seamlessly in the DVD program….”

Movie clips taken with EOS 5D Mark II, IXUS 130, Power Shot SX 200IS and many other Canon cameras are normally saved as MVI_xxxx files. These MVI files are actually Motion-JPEG/H.264 encoded video with .AVI or .MOV as file extension. The SD MVI videos shooting at 640×480 end up as .avi files and HD MVI files at 1280×720 or full HD 1920×1080 .mov files. H.264 .mov is a processing intensive format that does not playback or edit very well, while M-JPEG .avi is not compatible with Quicktime and iMovie 11. The solution to this is to use Pavtube MVI Video Converter to decode the files when converting into a different, and ideally more edit friendly, compression format.

Transcode solutions with the Canon MVI Converter:

To play MVI in Windows Media Player, convert MVI video to WMV format;

To import MVI to Windows Movie Maker/DVD Creator, convert MVI to AVI format;

Canon C300 and FCP – Log and Transfer Canon C300 MXF recordings to FCP 6/7 for editing

Canon always gives us surprises with its great and creative camera or camcorder products. Among all the products of Canon, the EOS C300 seems to be the most attractive one. The C300 can help us record vivid high-definition videos in MXF format which is often used in Sony, Panasonic and canon high-end cameras and camcorders. The MXF format is good to record videos, but MXF files are not easy to use because many editing software and devices can’t read MXF format videos, such as Apple’s Final Cut Pro 6 or 7 or above. So how to solve the problem and make Final Cut Pro support Canon C300 MXF videos for editing?

The Final Cut Pro (FCP) is announced to support many video formats including AVCHD (MTS/M2TS), MOV, MP4, etc. However, the MXF video format is not included, as a result of which, we can not directly load Canon C300 MXF recordings to FCP 6/7 for editing. Since the Final Cut Pro does not read C300 files natively, the best solution is to encode MXF files to ProRes 422 for Final Cut Pro.

Step 1. Connect Canon C300 to Mac with USB cable, and copy the files to hard drive. Download and Instal Pavtube MXF to Final Cut Pro Converter.

Run the top Mac MXF Converter for Final Cut Pro, and click the “Add” button to load your HD MXF videos.

Step 2. Click the format bar, and move mouse cursor to “Final Cut Pro > Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov)” as output format.

Tips: You can click properties to adjust the audio stream ID if you find the C300 MXF no sound.

Besides, you can click settings button to adjust the resolution, bitrate, etc. Just customize the parameters to meet your need.

Step 3. Click “Convert” button to start encode Canon C300 MXF files to ProRes for Final Cut Pro under Mac OS.

Some more helpful features of the app:

1. Settings- click to set video resolution(1920×1080/1440×1080/1280×720/720×480), bitrate(from 1Mbps to 20Mbps), frame rate (24p/30p)

2. Editor (next to “Add” icon)- click to set deinterlace, denoise, mute, volume up, trim, crop, etc.

MTS to iMovie-Convert AVCHD/MTS/M2TS Footages to AIC MOV for iMovie editing on Mac

Apple claims that iMovie ’09/11 supports most commonly-used video codecs, including DV, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, H.264, AVCHD and AIC. However, due to the wide range of media types, and the different ways manufacturers store video on these media types, not all AVCHD camcorders are compatible with iMovie ’09/11. In this case, the workaround for you is using a Mac AVCHD Video Converter tool to Convert AVCHD MTS to AIC for iMovie.

About Apple Intermediate Codec (Quoted from Wikipedia)

“The Apple Intermediate Codec is a video codec designed by Apple, Inc to be an intermediate format in an HDV workflow. It features high performance and quality, being less processor intensive to work with than other editing formats. Unlike native MPEG-2 based HDV – and similar to the standard-definition DV codec – AIC does not use temporal compression, enabling every frame to be decoded immediately without decoding other frames. As a result of this, AIC takes three to four times more space than HDV.

AIC is available only on the Mac OS X platform and cannot be read on other platforms to date such as Windows or Linux. All Mac OS X software which makes use of the QuickTime codec libraries – primarily Final Cut Studio, Final Cut Express, and iMovie, but also freeware such as MPEG Streamclip – can use the Apple Intermediate codec.”
