    Anyone here know if the Canon S21 HD camcorder is compatible with FCE 4?
    I have FCE 3 and plan to upgrade to 4.

    The Apple site doesn't have the S21 listed as a compatible camera to work with FCE 4. I've searched and I seem to get mixed results on this.
    Some sites say FCE will work with the S21 while other sites say it doesn't.

    Anyone here have this camera and have no problem transferring/editing their video with FCE?

    Thanks.

    I guess you already have looked at this?

    Anyway, ClipWrapper seems to be a good solution, if the camera is not recognised by FCE, but when you copy the SD card's content, be sure to copy the complete card with all files and folders to keep the structure intact. Just make a folder for every card you use and copy the SD card's content in there.

    And if you can read German: http://www.finalcutprofi.de/phpboard/viewtopic.php?t=64996&sid=010e893842dd19b0948816cda74f51cf
