I do not know that camera. What is important is what is inside those MOV files. This ARTICLE will give you some background on video formats, that are but wrappers and can contain so many different things. In your case, just mentally replace "AVI" with "MOV."
Often the mfgr's. sites do NOT tell you what CODEC is used. You might have to dig a bit. Even reviewers often fail to state the CODEC. That is all important. That will likely tell you how well, or poorly, the footage will edit.
Like the Canon 5D, this camera shoots video in a format that is not natively compatible with Premiere Elements -- so I would say it would not be a happy marriage.
A better fit would be an editor that uses H.264 MOVs natively, like iMovie or Final Cut or, if you want to stay in a PC environment, Quicktime Pro, a video processor and limited editor that can be downloaded from the Apple site for $29.
Great news fellas,
Found native clips for the T2i at
Brought em in and they play flawlessly after rendering. This will make a great second cam for our business.
Great find with those test files. That has obviously been very helpful to you, and thanks for posting the link, so others can test, should they think about that camera.
If the particular CODEC is the same as for the 5D/7D MK II's, then you might want to take a look at some of the articles on those files in this, and the PrPro forum. Lot of discussions, and only part of that discussion focuses on the particular Canon cameras - most is on the file format and CODEC. Also, the articles/blogs linked in this POST might be useful in addition to the forum discussions.
Meantime, make sure you take these test clips all through way through to outputting a file or burning a DVD.
Some issues with clips (frame rate and interlacing issues, for instance) don't show up until after you create your DVD. Don't assume that because the clips play in the program after rendering that this means the program is fully assimilating them.
I shared the final program as a high def .m2t file and it played fine. I will take your suggestion and burn a dvd.
have just bought the t2i and am having trouble with calling it up in org
anizer and elements. bridge will play back but not edit.
some thing is still wrong with this hardware software combingation so
be carefull. It will probably be fixed shortly but it
is frustrating at the moment
