Additionally, the camera can also record HD video in 720p at 60 and 50 fps, and 480p at 30 and 35 fps.
After recording videos with Canon T5 when we travel, you may meet the playback, editing issues when uploading Canon MOV files onto Premiere Pro on Mac. The basic reason why we can’t smoothly import Canon .mov footage to Premiere Pro is that Canon EOS T5 uses H.264 codec for video compressing which is an ideal file type for video capture in an SLR camera, but not ideal for editing.
And the H.264 compression format should be transcoded into a format better suited to editing; this would usually be MPEG-2, which ensures maximum editing quality and efficiency when working with Premiere Pro CS4/CS5/CS6. For this purpose, this article mainly shows you how to transcode Canon EOS Rebel T5 MOV footage to MPG for Premiere Pro in details.
Right click your MOV footage; rename the .mov files with .mpg extension. This "fools" Adobe Premiere Pro into thinking it's a different codec.
It works in this way; however, your footages didn't turn into another codec so that Premiere Pro may still does something wrong during editing. And if you didn't do a backup before changing the extension, it really ruins your valuable footage.
Besides, here's another problem: what if you have hundreds of clips to be edited? Rename all of them could be such a pain!
