I've been trying to read through this mess of a forum at

https://vimeo.com/forums/topic:26416

but I cannot figure out how to use the Log and Transfer window for the Canon T2i. Compressor works to get to Apple Pro Res 422, but it's a convoluted process.

This program is amazing, but Log and Transfer would be better: squared5.com/svideo/mpeg-streamclip-mac.html –  Yar Mar 7 '12 at 16:33
    
there's a "EOS Movie Plugin-E1 for Final Cut Pro" but I cannot find it (yet). –  Yar Mar 7 '12 at 16:42

Follow the instructions from http://thebuibrothers.com/blog/2010/03/how-to-canon-t2i-with-eos-movie-plugin-e1-final-cut-pro/. It's pretty annoying. Basically:

  1. Go here: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/cameras/slr_cameras/eos_5d_mark_ii#DownloadDetailAct

  2. Select Drivers and Software -> Mac OSX. Do NOT select your actual OSX operating system, as the right link will not show

  3. Download EOS MOVIE Plugin-E1 for Final Cut Pro Ver1.2

  4. Edit /Library/Application Support/ProApps/MIO/RAD/Plugins/CanonE1.RADPLug/Contents/Resources/cameras.plist to add the section

    <key>T2i</key>
    <array>
            <string>Canon EOS REBEL T2i</string>
    </array>
    

I suspect that the <string> can be anything, but I don't know.

  1. Open up FinalCut Pro and try log and transfer
