Question about Canon FS10 Flash Media Camcorder

Problems with .Mov files

Hi, I can't get my G4 iMac to recognise the .MOV files that the Canon FS10 Video Cam pushes out. Can change file prefix to .MPG which then shows as a Quicktime file (but will NOT open in Quicktime) and can then be opened in VLC8 only. Still cannot use files in iMovie though as it will only accept a Quicktime file . I have very little hair left, but am still pulling it out over this one!

Why fails to import MOV to iMovie? Like other multimedia container file formats like MP4, MKV, AVI, etc, the MOV files can store different types of media data. However, iMovie only supports MOV movie file whose codec is DV, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, H.264 or AIC, if the MOV video is encoded with other iMovie incompatible codec, you will definitely fail to load that file into iMovie or will suffer other playback issues even you have successfully drag and drop the mov video into iMovie's editing timeline.
Transcode Unsupported MOV for iMovie editing To fix above listed unsupported codec issue, the best way is transcoding MOV to iMovie editable file formats. Pavtube HD Video Converter for Mac can be the best MOV to iMovie conversion application which not only helps to convert all incompatible MOV files to iMovie compatible editing formats including MPEG-4, QuickTime Movie (*.mov), MPEG-2, AVCHD, DV & HDV, all also gives you the chance to produce the less processive intensive Apple Intermediate Codec (AIC) if your computer is not powerful enough to deal with HD workflows.

Best Mac MXF File Converter-Import/Edit Canon MXF Files to ProRes 422 MOV to FCP

MXF file format comes from like Panasonic HVX200/HPX300, Canon XF300/XF305, Sony EX camera, etc. It is not compatible with many programs just like Apple Final Cut Pro. So Convert MXF file to FCP MOV Video is a necessary step to do if you want watch your video from your camcorder which export mxf file.

And we know that Apple ProRes 422 , Apple ProRes 4444,introduced in Final Cut Studio, was advertised to one of the codecs to result in less compression and higher data rate/higher quality files for HD editing in Final Cut Pro.

Below is the step-by-step guide for you to quickly Convert/Edit MXF to Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov) Final Cut Pro on Final Cut Studio,Final Cut Pro 7 on Mac.

Step 1. Add MXF videos to Aunsoft MXF Video Converter for Mac.

Here we choose Apple ProRes 422(HQ) (*.mov) as output format. (The Apple ProRes 422 (Proxy) codec is intended for offline editing and contains 30 percent of the data rate of Apple ProRes 422, and I recommend you to select Apple ProRes 422(HQ), Apple ProRes 422(LT) MOV for outputting.)

Step 3. Merge Canon MXF files. (Optional)
Tick the checkbox for "Merge into one file", and the Mac MXF Video Converter will join and combine the video clips into a single file as output.

After Converting and Merging the MXF files, just import the output Apple PreRes 422 .mov files to Final Cut Pro 7 or Final Cut Pro 6 for editing and the video .Optimize your workflow and save time with the Apple ProRes compression for Final Cut Pro. You can also import the output videos to Final Cut Express (FCE) 4 for editing in full HD.

Cannot see pc MOV or JPG files on flash drive in Canon SX230


Thanks very much for responding to my problem.
It seems Canon will not allow edited pictures or video to transfer from PC to their digital cameras for viewing.
steps to my problem:1. my canon SX230 created all the parts for my WMV video in MOV format originally.
2. created a movie (WMV format) in Windows Live Movie Maker. Works well and plays on my PC (windows 7).
3. after WMV completed - converted to HD MOV format in 2 different file convert programs and with 2 different HD MOV resolution settings on Both programs. WMV resolution is 1920x1080 (HD). ALL 4 MOV videos play well on my PC in 2 different programs.

Steps getting Canon to see video in playback mode.1. copy MOV video from PC to Flash drive in my card reader in same folder as my original JPG & MOV files, then inserted into camera - does not recognize file.
2. copy MOV file from PC to camera with USB cable. Windows error message. Wrong format - would not copy.
3. Formatted flash drive in camera. Took picture to create DCIM folder, JPG image, and CANONMSC folder with M0104.CTG file .Deleted CANONMSC folder. Copied my MOV video from PC to camera (USB cable). this time copy successful. However camera does nor recognize file.
5. tried again except deleted M0104.CTG file but not the CANONMSC folder. no luck.
It seems Canon will not recognize any file that has not originated in the camera AND has not been altered. Upon researching answers on the NET - many other users of Canon cameras have the same problem with no luck.

Is sdr-h90p/pc compatible with mac apple macintosh?


Your cam can be connected to a mac as an external HDD. Just copy files on Your mac then edit it, for example, with iMovie. Here is a trick. Your movie must be converted to .mov files, so:
Open video file in a quicktime. Press "save as". In a menu select .mov as file type. In "Advanced settings" UNMARK the option "make te movie self-contained". So, You'll get a small .mov file, connected with Your original file. This .mov file now You can drag'n'drop onto iMovie and edit it.
