Robert,

We know HDV is coming, Apple announced it would nearly a year ago. And many of us are assuming it will be announced shortly.

SJ just announced HD support in iMovie at the MacWorld San Francisco keynote. More info will probably be available on Apple's website shortly...

Apple does it again.

Unbelievable...

Besides iMovie...looks like FCP Express is also HDV capable.

The cost of entry to HDV editing has gone waaay down.

Yipppeee!

But I wonder if you can export back to camera?

One more thing....the famous cube has been reborn...

in the shape of the Mac-mini!

What are the minimum specs required to edit HDV on the Mac? I mean, if you could pick up one of those Mac Mini's for $500 and a copy of Final Cut Express for $300....

According to the FCE HD page...

You need a 1ghz g4 or g5...

so that will do it...

Just need more memory and more hard drive space...

But do the math...a refurb iMac g5 goes for $1,000.

The refurb iMac is $1000. The Mac Mini is $500.

$1000-$500=$500 cheaper.

What I meant was...[and I'm not knocking the minimac] is that if you already have a monitor and everything else...it's a pretty cool deal...

But by getting a iMac g5 for $1,099 refurbished..you get a nice 17" LCD screen keyboard, mice and the faster cpu...[and yes--five hundred bucks is five hundred bucks more than I have right now..."-)]

Of course...style means a lot too...the mini-Mac is a nice sequel to the Cube..

I have to upgrade also...the minimum 1ghz speed has made my 2 and half year old 800mhz eMac a candidate for some kind of upgrade...to edit HDV.
