The Canon T5i/700D records full HD 1080P H.264 videos in MOV format(1080p30 video recording, stereo sound with internal or external mics), but most users may find a problem when loading/transferring the recorded H.264 MOV footages to Final Cut Pro x for editing. While Final Cut Pro X does work with Canon .movs, these H.264 versions are clunky to edit requiring much rendering when in a FCP X timeline. In order to process Canon T5i/700D footage fast and seamless in Final Cut Pro X, it requires that the H.264 .mov videos to be transcoded into a format better suited to editing, and this would usually be Apple ProRes, which is the best intermediate codec developed specifically for seamless Final Cut workflow.
The Log and Transfer window in Final Cut Pro X makes ProRes files from your Canon EOS T5i camera’s memory card. In case that Log and Transfer does not work/can not recognize the Canon camera, the simply wanted to use the new EOS Plugin from Canon, but it seems that some frames were dropped when transcoded to ProRes 422. The best way to choose a Mac Canon Video Converter to convert H.264 footage into Apple Prores codec. From there you can load Canon DSLR footage via “File>>Import>>Files…” instantly without long-time rendering.
This program supports more variety of Canon DSLR cameras than FCP does, Video Converter reads standalone .mov files from Canon memory card. Refer to a detailed guide of Convert Rebel T5i MOV to FCP via Canon video converter.
