I am using a Canon Vixia HG 21 and am looking to import my footage into Premiere. The only connection available is for the USB. I am using a Mac and was told that I can only import through Firewire. Does anyone know how I can import my footage in another way from my Canon?
If you have a tape based camera you capture you footage through firewire, but as yours is a hard drive based camera you copy the files to the hard drive of the Mac via usb and then import into Premiere.
You were misinformed. Use USB and copy the contents of your card to your HDD.
Now which files are we talking about, when i explore the contents of the camera I see .BDM .MPL and .CPI Which ones should I download and import?
