Up date to Canon’s EOS Movie Plug-in-E1 for Final Cut Pro

Canon has announced the latest update for EOS Movie Plug-in-E1 for Final Cut Pro – the company’s custom-developed software application that provides quicker and easier editing of EOS Movie footage in Apple’s Final Cut Pro software suite.


Launching to coincide with the start of the 2011 National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show in Las Vegas, EOS Movie Plug-in-E1 for Final Cut Pro version 1.2 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.


One of the previously frustrating features of the plug-in is that you have to maintain the folder structure of the CF card on which the files were captured – even if you move the files to your hard drive before you import the footage.  The updated version will make this process easier and allow users to import files from any folder

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.


Originally launched in February 2010, EOS Movie Plug-in-E1 for Final Cut Pro is designed to quickly and seamlessly convert EOS Movie footage from Canon’s leading range of EOS DSLR cameras to Apple’s high-quality ProRes 422 codec. The plug-in allows users to convert footage at approximately twice the speed of Apple’s standard conversion, creating a smoother workflow for the rapidly growing number of videographers shooting HD video content on DSLR cameras.


EOS Movie Plug-in-E1 for Final Cut Pro version 1.2 will be available to download for free from 25th April 2011.


We will post the link as soon as it is available. Keep an eye out.

    • Good to hear all is well with you.

      Sandra is good.

      To answer your question about hooking teh Mac to the TV. It is a bit of a “how long is a piece of string question. But let’s try some options.

      If the TV has a USB input option then you can put your footage on a USB Stick.

      If your TV has a VGA input plug then you can attach your mac through the video out port – on your imac that is a DVI out put so you would need a DVI to VGA cable.

      Try this page and see if these plugs will fit in your computer (DVI END) and TV (VGA end)

      It is all a bit guessing game I am afraid without knowing what plugs you have.
