I am a still photographer that was excited to hear that Aperture 3 is supporting DSLR video footage ......... until I downloaded it and found out you could only trim the clips, not adjust color etc. Bummer.
I have tried Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere, and both are WAY overkill for what I want to do; simply trim the clips ( from my 5DII ) and adjust the colors and curves. Thats it. I dont want to create movies, put together commercials, I am not even recording audio.
Right now I am opening the clip in Photoshop CS4, adjusting color + curves, then exporting to Mpeg Streamclip to trim and create a low and high res file, also converting to Apple Pro Res 422 codec. There has got be a better way.
Anyone have any suggestions for software I should use?
