I haven't seen this posted. I'm sure Compressor workflows have been posted before but it's good to see Apple post about it. The workflow looks pretty simple. Does anyone know if FCP is capturing to an intermediate format or is it capturing the native HDV stream?

Cool for Apple for doing this! I hope more NLEs follow the idea and help their customers.

Good to see i've been doing the "Apple Recommended" work flow for months now!

I've never risked it to see if I could capture straight to ProRes as per Wes' suggestion. I think that'd be great if possible, however, it'd increase the intial storage needs, and you'd *still* need to rerender to reverse telecine the footage.

It'll be wondeful if/when Apple will have FCP know what the user it trying to do when importing certain footage from a certain camera (say, an HV20) and detect the footage cadence automatically, reverse telecine it, and capture it to the codec of choice on the fly. An "HV20 24P" preset would do nicely.
