I just gotten the new camera and it seems that Canon has left out any software for editing the movie files. I am new to movie editing so I would be most grateful if anyone here can advise what they would recommend using (preferably freebie software just in case I do not wish to take up this side of photography seriously).

Thanks!

For the one movie I did any editing to, I used iMovie (Mac).

Heya... i confronted this problem myself - have a look at my input if you like here
https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=622119

for free? not so sure - let us know are you PC or MAC...

if you look around im sure you can find demo and trial software to test your methods and trial your output files before copping a fee...

keep us posted on what path you take...

Final Cut Express for me.


"Raw" is not an acronym, abbreviation, nor a proper noun; thus, it should not be in capital letters.

I tried Sony VEgas Studio free trial. VEry easy for video beginner, but sometimes would hang/reboot system. Otherwise, I liked it a lot. Think the Platinum, or Pro, version is under $100.
Downloeaded Corel's video program, haven't tried it yet.

Hi SuperNicko
Unfortunately - I am a PC user. :-(
Been wanting to go Mac for years but never got round to it. Hoping to see if there are any PC solution for this. Otherwise, it looks like I might use this as a reason to go Mac.

Isn't it curious that Canon packages DPP and Zoombrowser etc. for still photography but did not throw in a entry level video editor. So much more to learn!

Thanks for the links and input!

Cheers

i know canonised...i had a scour of the discs myself...

i too am a PC user and a much too recent upgrader to quite a substantial machine... its fine editing the vids it just doesnt play a live feed while editing (its choppy)

im using adobe premiere pro cs3 and its really good - i learnt it with my dv vid usage - im not fancy but can use it to cut and fade and bring in titles etc... its a little more effort than just open and drop but the results are nice and the encoding part of it is really customisable to your output.

I do think that canon included only a view method as i think any of the more basic editors choke on this footage... plus no doubt they would have been worried about the minimum specification computer to run it at an acceptable level - this sort of stuff scares people off - whereas this way we jump in and then suss it all out once we have forked out!

I just discovered that there is a Windows Movie Maker in my PC. Never used it before and hope its painless to use. If anyone has pointers on this software, I would be most grateful. Esp. to a page on the net for how to use the thing!

Cheers

Unfortunately, Windows XP's Movie Maker doesn't support AVCHD.

Windows Vista's Movie Maker or Movie Maker HD can support AVCHD. Vista Movie Maker only comes with Home Premium or Vista Ultimate. I'm not sure if you'll need to install CCCP for AVCHD support. Worst case scenario, you can just transcode the files into a supported format. I believe that the only output supported by Movie Maker is WMV and AVI.

Darn... clearly I am out of my depth here. Thanks Leonard. Looks like I need to go buy dedicated software. Probably Adobe Premiere... :-(

Well it's not free but I use Adobe Premiere. It is very good software, just as you'd expect from Adobe.

I'm not sure I follow. The 5Dii videos are in a Quicktime MOV container with h.264 video. Isn't AVCHD a different container ("Audio/Video Codec for High Def")?

yes, and since both avchd and canon video are based on h.264, neither will probably work with windows movie maker(??)... but download some of the raw canon video files and give it a shot... whoops, i guess that nicko tried it already.

you can google up free editing software for the pc, there is some stuff out there, don't know if it supports h.264 from the canon:

Hmm.. I don't have a 5D MkII, but is there a way that you could get me a 20MB RAW and/or MOV file from the camera? I'll see if I can figure out a way to get it to work in Vista Ultimate Movie Maker.

PM me.
