Looking for a smooth workflow between Canon EOS 70D and Davinci Resolve 11 Lite
“Hi, all, I’m working with Davinci Resolve 11 Lite on iMac 21.5″ with an ATI RADEON HD 6770M 512 MB. I have a new Canon 70D camera, which shoots movies using H.264 codec with .MOV container. When I open the .MOV footage with FCP X I don’t have any kind of problem to read it, but when I try with Davinci Resolve 11 Lite, it’s unable to read images normally. Davinci Resolve recognizes the H.264 .MOV files shot on EOS 70D, but when I push play it is not fluently… How can I expect a fluid workflow for Canon EOS 70D and Davinci Resolve 11 Lite? Any suggestions???”
If for whatever reason DaVinci Resolve is impossible to work with EOS 70D MOV files smoothly, we would recommend transcoding them to a format that is suitable for use in your editing program first, such as DNxHD .mov and ProRes .mov, which DaVinci Resolve will recognize and handle well. You can read on to check a short tutorial on how to convert Canon EOS 70D MOV to DNxHD/ProRes .mov for use in DaVinci Resolve with optimum performance.
