Hd Images & Video From Canon 5dmkll



Can anyone help. Im a wedding photojournalist and have the new Canon 5DMll 21MP DSLR. I want to use the HD video this camera has and use it for documentary footage of weddings I photograph. I believe the format is MOV, h.264, 30fps. Can Media Creator support this file type and edit the footage? I then want to export to DVD disc. Now...can I export and render to standard 4.3GB single layer in HD 1920x1080p, or, do I have to render to Blueray discs, using the plugin? I really need to know both answers as not everyone has a Blueray player. It would also be beneficial knowing if Creator supports smaller HD formats or should I be looking at another software package? Im running WinXP as well...Thanks very much!

If the Canon saves to 'standard' Quicktime H.264 files, then yes Creator 2009 should have no problem with those files. If you can post a sample file somewhere, we would be glad to test it out.


The second part is a bit trickier. Creator 2009 Ultimate or Creator 2009 with Bluray plugin can indeed burn hidef 1080p to a regular DVD. However, the format is Bluray and can only be played on a Bluray player or computer with Bluray software. Creator 2009 can also 'down convert' HD files to standard definition and burn to standard video DVD that any DVD player can handle.


These are the outputs available in Videowave:

AVC better Quality = 800x450@1.95Mbps

AVC good quality = 640x260@1Mbps

AVC smaller size = 480x270@1Mbps

AVCHD 1080i = 1920X1080@4.88Mbps 24fps

AVCHD 720p = 1280x720@4.88Mbps 24fps


Bluray AVC EP = 1280x720@6.84Mbps 24fps

Bluray AVC HQ = 1280x720@14.65Mbps 24fps

Bluray AVC LP (NTSC) = 1440x1080@9.77Mbps, interlaced

Bluray AVC SP (NTSC) = 1920X1080@11.72Mbps, interlaced


Bluray EP = 1280x720@15Mbps 24fps

Bluray HQ = 1920x1080@30Mbps 24fps

Bluray LP (NTSC) = 1440X1080@20Mbps, interlaced

Bluray SP (NTSC) = 1920X1080@25Mbps, interlaced


I can only assume those not labelled interlaced are rendered as progressive.
