Intro image for article How to Import C300 Mark II Footage in Avid, FCP X, Premiere & Resolve
Tutorials & Guides
Just over three years ago, I wrote up an article on how to import Canon C300 footage into various NLEs. The C300 Mark II has been out for some time now, but it's just recently that all the major software applications have supported it.

Tutorials & Guides
One of the more interesting features of the Sony F55 is its ability to record in 4K XAVC video while simultaneously recording in HD. This gives you the option of editing right away in the Sony MPEG2 HD format as a proxy, and then linking back to the 4K XAVC compression for finishing. Sounds great right?

With every new camera, come many new questions about workflow. The term "workflow" can be fairly broad, but today I am looking at importing Sony F5/F55 footage into various non-linear editing systems (NLEs). Both the F5 & F55 can record in MPEG2 (XDCAM), XAVC and HDCAM SR formats internally. With the addition of the AXS-R5 recorder, they can also record in Sony Raw. This article is focused on MPEG2 and XAVC, but be sure to keep an eye out for future blogs on working with Sony Raw and HDCAM SR.

Tutorials & Guides
Working with Log material can be difficult at times, so we have put out a couple of different LUTs for use when using the Sony F3's S-Log or Canon Log from the Canon C300. You can download the F3 LUTs here and the C300 LUTs here, as many of you have already done. Arri has their online LUT Generator, and the Technicolor CineStyle LUTs are available when using the CineStyle profile on the 5D Mark II.

With every new camera, comes many new questions about workflow. The term 'workflow' can be fairly broad, but today I am looking at importing C300 footage into various non-linear editing systems (NLE). The C300 uses the same workflow as the Canon XF series of cameras (which includes the XF305, XF300, XF105 and XF100), because it records in the same format. However, the tools for importing the footage have been updated by Canon. Below, I outline how to ingest footage onto a hard drive, and how to import into Avid Media Composer, Final Cut Pro 7, Premiere 5.5 and Final Cut Pro X. Keep reading for a brief how-to on each process.
