I'm really surprised this isn't a sticky. This is by far the most important thread about HD video from the 5D Mark II.

I've found that with the settings tweaked as suggested there is some weird texture-like effect on some stuff. You can see it particularly easily on oof specular highlights because they're so smooth.

I still have to resize the video for editing, but that's ok because you can swap the original in to where the resized one was for exporting full size.

Yes your right, this has to be a sticky.

I had quite a fast comp before, double core and fast processor; however the HD videos would not play very good on all players, except the one listed with the tweak. Lucky me has bought a new comp, quad core, and now they play on anything.

The HD as they are called, actually seem so good, they come out better that real live, all that has viewed their HD videos will know what I mean.

Don't be so quick to reinstall Windows!

The solution is right here:

I''ll guess this trick will work for video wich come out of my brand new 500D?

If so, thanx in advance, I''ll try it now!

I use on other way, I converted the mov-file with AVS video converter to avi (the video codec is in the program).

The file plays perfect than.

Yes, see the settings below.

You can even combine files

I admit, I convert the mov's too! (I owned an SX1, sold it, bought a 500d wich I love) But I allways did it with "4media" wich works excellent. But I missed the option to combine the results. I think I'll give this a try.

I haven't read through the whole thread but this is my typical work flow.
Keep in mind that I'm using a Mac Book Pro 2.3Ghz Dual core with 3 Gigs of RAM that I purchased almost 3 years ago.

1. Copy my files to the HD.


2. Convert the files to either Apple Pro Res or DVC Pro at 1080 or 720 to save HD space. Convering to these file types makes huge files! I use compressor to do a batch conversion. Making a droplet really helps with this.

3. Bring them into FCP with matching project setting (Matching Resolution and Codec)

4. Export with Compressor or Final Cut.

If I'm exporting for web upload like Vimeo or YouTube, I'll export it as Quicktime H.264, if I want to play it on my XBOX, I export it as a WMV.

Using the DVCPro or ProRez codec, even 1080p files play very smoothly on my Mac. The files with the native codec do not.

Hi,

This is the first movie (short one) with AVS Video Editor.

No problems with rendering etc.

Quality is less because of VIMEO at home it looks perfect.

The video is a test one, so not perfect.

Quicktime really isn't that great for HD playback. It has a very inefficient algorithm. XBMC (and Plex for Macs) is far superior because it uses ffmpeg.


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

Then what do you recommend?

XBMC (Win and Mac) or Plex (Mac) since they use ffmpeg.

Hi Blue S2, I have exactly the same issues and I do use Sony Vegas as well; I am really glad to see this post here and thanks for sharing! I will go home tonight and give it a try.

btw, what kind of set up did you do on Sony Vegas in order to edit those 1080 videos?

thanks

BINGO!

Instant FIX! Now my videos don't even take more than a second to load up and play perfectly!

THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Before this, the videos would take forever to load as well. I figured it was due to the 300+ mb size. Now with the VLC option set, videos open and play instantly!

Now its time to get an editor reinstalled on here and start making some music videos!
