    editing hd footage from canon d5

      Hi all.

      Wonder if anyone out there has managed to edit anything shot with the new canon d5 mark 2?

      I had hoped to use it as a backup for my hd video camera in an emergency but i am starting to wonder just how easy it is. I havnt had time to try any sample stuff yet and wonder if someone could save me some agro and cut to the chase a bit.

      I would appreciate any info,

      regards Simon

          Simon,

          There are several threads on the Canon D5 MKII in both the Premiere Pro and Premiere Elements forums. I'd search them both. Do not recall the solutions, but there are a lot of replies in each forum.

          Good luck,

          Hunt

            Simon, i tried it today and i used Adobe Media Encoder CS4 and queued up all files from the D5 MkII and converted the files to I-Frame MPEG2 and it worked as a charm. Then i set up a new Custom Sequence in Deskop mode that matched my MPEG2's.

            I could not see any degradation in quality when i compared the I-Frame MPEG2's to the original files and most important, i could edit the material with no problems. :)
