The new version (1.2) will make importing EOS Movie files easier, allowing users to transfer files from any folder, without needing to mirror the folder structure on the camera itself.
It 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.
The plug-in is designed to seamlessly convert EOS Movie footage into Apple’s high-quality ProRes 422 codec about twice fast as Apple’s standard conversion.
EOS Movie Plug-in-E1 for Final Cut Pro version 1.2 will be available to download free from 25th April 2011.
