How to use the EOS Movie Plugin-E1 Final Cut Pro with the Canon Rebel T2i 550D | The Bui Brothers Blog

If you are a Canon Rebel T2i user and are bummed about your inability to use the new Final Cut Pro plug-in from Canon – be bummed no longer. Our friend Lan Bui has it all worked out for you!4340725759_2177532e07.jpg

A few days ago Canon released the EOS Movie Plugin-E1 for Final Cut Pro. It is very exciting for all of us using the Canon DSLRs and Final Cut Pro. We (Vu and I) mostly use the Canon 5D mark II and Canon 7D for our videos… both cameras are supported natively in the new E1 plugin. Unfortunatley the new Canon T2i is not supported in the E1 plugin yet.

This is very upsetting because the video quality from this T2i is actually very good!!! I had a chance to play with Rodney Charters’ T2i a few weeks ago and talk to him about it… basically the T2i is a 7D in a plastic body.

So, for all of you that want to use the T2i in Final Cut Pro and want to use the E1 plugin for FCP… watch the video above to see how to get it to work. I basically follow this method (by Nathan Beaman) on finalcutuser.com) I found on a post on Planet5D.
