Wow what a day for me what a day. I went from looking for a way to put video tutorial on my blog to looking for a video camera for shooting it to looking for a software to edit it to doing the same thing all over again for the last few hours. After a lot of pocket searching and exhaustion I came to a conclusion that for simple video tutorials I do not need a $2000 video editing package and that I don’t need an equivalent priced video camera. So I turned to my canon 5DMKII and decided to use it instead.
The initial deterrent to using my 5DMKII was due to the fact that I thought I needed a specialized pro video editing software like Sony Vegas Pro or Apple Final Cut or Adobe Premiere pro. Then I sniffed around the WWW(world wide web) with my faithful internet dog named Doogle (Google) and found out a few things. Both Pinnacle and Sony Vegas Movie studio can edit my 5DMKII footage. The native 5DMKII video recording format h.264 is really not an editing format (like Jpeg is not for photos). Everyone converts the 5DMKII H.264 format to a more editor friendly code like neoscene or to Avid DNxHD or something else. For editing H.264 in Sony Vegas I chose Avid DNxHD and will link you to an excellent resource which shows how to make 5DMKII footage pc editable friendly.
In case her plugin links for DNxHD don’t work here is a link to the site:
Now once the conversion has been completed, when you edit in Sony Vegas Movie Studio Platinum there will be no stutter or lag in the previe window. Hope my discovery helps people and soon I will be posting more helpful tips for Canon 5DMKII PC editing.
This is a great and free alternative to Neoscene HD for converting 5DMKII footage.
So sleeepppyyy zzzzzzzzzz.
