Hi,

Merry X-mas/happy holidays to everyone!

I got my 5dmk2 few days ago and I'm looking information about software and possible workflow tips to allow me to shoot stock footage with that new camera.

I think I need some kind of editing program and maybe codecs (commercial?) as well. Adobe software(premier) seems to be quite expensive so is there alternative for the editing software. I read Leaf post about different sites requirements, so I need so me work flow tips to get videos to these sites easy as possible. My computer setup (PC-vista64) is quite fast with lot of memory so I think the programs can run fast enough to allow video editing. And of course if there is good to know tips about 5dmk2 video shooting please let me know:).

Thanks in advance,

Best regards : Mikko P.

I wrote a short guide to Microstock footage a while back which should answer a few questions regarding sound/clip length/codec.

iStock seem to love Apple codec so quicktime pro $30

Any editorial footage submitted to SS needs a detailed title regarding when/where/what otherwise they reject it and you have to reupload

If you want, you can just use Adobe Premiere Elements 7. Elements 7 is kind of slow, even on a new computer. It only costs around $80 to a $100, though.

Thanks a lot for the information. I will try that free streamclip program with apple codec. Is there any information how much usual submitter get from the video clip per month / year (average)? I see that there is other sites as well (pond5 etc). The upload speed will be the problem (1mbs upload speed).

br, Mikko
