The essential tool for converting DSLR video to edit-friendly formatsMagic Bullet Grinder is the smartest way to transcode DSLR/HDSLR footage. Grinder converts Canon video to edit-friendly formats, burns in timecode and generates editing proxies in a single time-saving pass. Use Grinder to work faster and easier than transcoding inside Final Cut Pro 7. Version 1.5 adds helpful new features for high-resolution output like ProRes HQ and ProRes LT codecs and a frame rate option of 25p or 24p. Proxy files can now use EXIF-based timecode, 1080p output and a custom output destination. We’ve also added customized file naming, Growl notification support and render priority for main vs proxy files. Grinder is a standalone solution that converts video without bogging down your video editing application. Take the tedium out of transcoding and get to the editing you love.
