Did you like Long Way Round? Yes, I loved it. I had to say it gave me some inspiration to make a bike tour happen. My favorite section was the Road of Bones bit, with the big fallen bridges, and the trucks going through the rivers. I often videoed mine, though I've not looked at all the footage yet (only just back, really). I did the majority of my filming by having camcorder (Canon 450d/XSi) in handlebar bag, and simply reaching in and holding taking it when I needed to, while riding one handed. I could articulate it well, hold it out, up, ahead, behind, and still ride comfortably. I never rode with it to my eye, though, always used autofocus, and just checked with my thumb it was zoomed out. Pretty good results from the footage I've viewed.
But now i wanna rearrange my all Canon 450d/XSi footages, edit with FCP on Mac and then upload to YouTube. All the footages have already stored on my Mac, but FCP 7 can’t let me import them, some people said I had to use Composer to transcode Canon 450d/XSi MOV to ProRes, but Composer failed importing, too. I went to an apple forum and there were a lot of choices to convert. Complicated and slow ones. But someone said about the Aunsoft Video Converter for Mac, I tried and finally convert my Canon 450d/XSi footages to ProRes successfully.
Following I will show someone who also use canon EOS 450d/XSi camera how to convert Canon 450D/XSi MOV to ProRes MOV for Final Cut.
