Posted on Apr 13, 2010 by Alex Fice

Avid’s latest editing systems will now natively accept footage from Canon’s XF camcordersNew formats natively supported in Media Composer, NewsCutter and Symphony editing systems include: 

  • QuickTime: Allows customers to directly edit any media that plays in the QuickTime player, including the Apple ProRes codec and .MOV files generated by DSLR cameras such as the Canon 5D and 7D. Additionally, customers have the ability to import from devices that natively record and generate QuickTime and ProRes files like the AJA Ki Pro or Omneon Spectrum Server. Content can then easily be shared between Avid and third-party applications.
  • RED: Provides direct access to .R3D footage, including full metadata preservation, allowing customers to work with full quality media throughout the entire production process. Additionally, RLX and RSX files are supported for high-fidelity colour management and images are scaled to HD frame sizes for TV production.
  • New Canon XF codec: Delivers support for the newest Canon camcorder, introduced today.
  • XDCAM proxies: Offers access to proxy video and high-quality audio files, enabling customers to make more informed creative decisions in the offline edit and easily link back to full resolution XDCAM clips to complete projects.
