If you are shooting a project at 1080 24P, then Canon 7D records the footage at 23.98 which is perfectly compatible and tested with Avid. Firstly create a new 1080/24P project. Now import footage from a CF card in DNxHD codec. Then edit the time line in real-time apply the real-time effects but here the playback is not in real-time in this screen. There are a lot of benefits using an Avid. The main one is when you are editing 5D footage because of the codec it is used, it is very hard to edit the footage relatively which then you need to trans-code the codec to another codec. the other benefits are getting easy CF card offload solutions into DNxHD, real screen full screen editing after easy trans-code, real-time effects are possible especially useful for anamorphic and easily portable of QuickTime Reference exports.
