I have been getting emails wanting more specifics on workflow and was about to make an entry on transcoding (changing the CODEC) on the 5DII footage so that FC can read it, but then I saw that Vince Laforet does a very good job of explaining it. The difference is that I use Compressor, rather than StreamClip, for no particular reason other than that is what I have always used. I do use StreamClip when I need to send off a compressed file though. The other great program I use is Squeeze, which is absolutely the best Flash convertor I have ever used. In fact, we just changed the flash player on the main site, and it is playing the FLV files a bit dark and contrasty, so I will be using Squeeze tonight to redo the files.
