Aspect MOV files in FCP?

Hi, I have Aspect HD and use PPro on a pc, but I just ordered an Intel Mac Pro. My question is, can I capture .mov clips with HD link on the pc, and then import the files into Final Cut? After that, would the workflow be the same as if I had captured the files directly from the cam into the Mac with FCP??

Thanks,
Vlad

Yes, that is correct, MOVs capture on the PC will work directly within a FCP timeline. The freely available Mac decoder will work fine with your Aspect HD files, however you will need a Prospect HD or NEO HD license if you wish render to CineForm on the Mac.

David, thanks for the quick response!
With Prospect HD, will I be able to use it for capture on the mac, or do I always need to capture on the pc (or boot camp) and then transfer the files to FCP?

Thanks again,
Vlad

Vladimir, currently if you want to use CineForm tools for capture you'll need to do this on a PC. We will port our capture and conversion tools to Mac, but so far we've been focusing on codec and workflow compatibility first, and I/O plus conversion second. It's also why we give both a Windows and Mac license with Neo HD/2K and Prospect HD/2K.
