To be able to work with Canon XA10 AVCHD files on a Mac smoothly, people sometimes need to transcode the footage first. This post walks you through how to convert XA10 AVCHD.mts files to a Mac friendly format for editing or playing via using a helpful Canon XA10 Video Converter for Mac. XA10 is an avchd camera. Copy entire card to hdd and ingest via Media Browser. You can pick a matching avchd sequence or drag a clip into the timeline either way.
Price Disclaimer The Mini Recorder does not make your camcorder a USB webcam – life is not quite that easy. Step 1 – Plug everything in. The UltraStudio is powered by Thunderbolt, but you’ll want to plug your camcorder into an electric outlet if it’ll be running for hours on end. Step 2 – Turn Off the Canon’s Output Displays. By default, the camcorder’s HDMI output shows things like the time and the recording status onscreen.
Go into the Canon’s onscreen menus where it says “Output Onscreen Displays” and turn that off. Skype Camera List Skype’s camera list just shows “Blackmagic” as an input device, with no resolutions or color depths, and it just displays a useless black screen. It appears to be application-dependent – for example, earlier versions of Skype worked, but the current (6.14 as of March 2014) version doesn’t, as shown at right. Here’s the apps I’ve tested the UltraStudio with on OS X 10.9: • Google Hangouts – works.
• Screenflow v4.5 and v5.0 – works. • Skype v7.6 – works. • GoToMeeting v7.1.5 – doesn’t work.
• GoToWebinar – doesn’t work. Adobe photoshop for mac free download. • Cisco WebEx Meeting Center v29.13.4 – does not work. If you want to spend even more money (around $500), and you’re willing to put up with high CPU usage, check out.
It takes takes the Blackmagic UltraStudio’s input and acts like a USB webcam for most software. It’ll even let you add additional effects live, like removing backgrounds or overlaying text. Unfortunately, during my testing, it constantly used 100% CPU of one core, and I don’t like having my laptop fan going while I webcast. I’ve also tried a few other software products that purport to do the same thing, like Camtwist and Manycam, but I’ve had really bad stability results. The software has been buggy and crashtastic – the one thing I can’t have when clients are paying me for webcasts.
For now, I still end up with two cameras – my for GoToWebinar, and the Canon/Blackmagic combo for everything else. Thanks for this post.
I was able to get my r500 hooked up to my computer by following this post. I had no idea it would be so difficult and expensive. It seemed like it should be as simple as plugging the camcorder into the computer via USB or HDMI.
The video quality is amazing! FYI, if you are having a hard time getting your computer to recognize your camera, uninstall BlackMagic software, restart and reinstall. I had some issues on the first install but uninstalling and reinstalling seemed to do the trick. I tested this with QuickTime 7 and FaceTime and they both work. For some reason, QuickTime 10 doesn’t work. Great information thanks!
I have a Canon Vixia that I’m trying to use as a WebCam for the Google chrome capture application. I’m trying to capture a lecture series with the video camera set in the corner of the room and allow screen capture of slides for immediate upload to website for students further review. The Google Chrome capture allows the slides to be recorded via screen capture and a small video box in the bottom right-hand corner for students to follow.
Do you know if this capture software would work with your set up? Do you know of any similar software that might work?
It’s been pretty hard to find Thanks! Excellent post! On the point of following your recipe to the word but before I buy the material, hoping you could give your opinion: We are new-media artists who have often made installations with live camera/computer/projector setup.
Recently asked to show an older work (2005) which worked with DV camera connected by firewire to a mac, hoping to upgrade to a HD cam like you show. Our software is “Max”: Max seems to recognize firewire camera and webcams like the logitech. Am wondering if you think there will be any problem with the Blackmagic? Thanks again for the post. Hi MP, it’s now March 2016 and the situation after 9 months seem to not have changed much at. Still no support for Screenflow 5 and the Blackmagic UltraStudio Mini Recorder. The workaround I have just tested with great success is a downgrade to Screenflow 4, the latest version 4.5.4 seems to be working well on El Capitan 10.11.3, and the video is captured just fine.
