PRODUCTION PROCESS

The issue with file formats:

One minor issue that groups will inevitably have to overcome is the file formats the Canon Legria Video Cameras save to.

Every time you film something, the video camera saves the clip as a .MOD file. This particular file format is not recognised by Adobe Premier, therefore we need to follow a simple procedure to convert the file format.

NOTE: The school has a vast array of cameras that will capture moving images. If you choose to use another device, this procedure may not be necessary.

How to convert .MOD files to a format that Adobe Premier understands?
