CineForm + Fat32 Compatibility

I'm using a Windows computer and I have NeoScene installed. This must seam like a very basic question but I have to ask anyway since for the last several minutes I'm having trouble finding the answer.

I got an external hard drive that is formatted to Fat 32 and my question is how do I deal with the 4 gig limit for large files? Their should be an option somewhere in which I can set it to make multiple 3.99 gig files. I really don't feel like reformatting that hard drive since I want it to work in both Windows and Mac computers.

This normally no practical reason to use FAT32 formatted drives, as the file size limitation and more painful that mild inconvience of using NTFS on the Mac.

Reformat to NTFS and use an NTFS tool or MacFUSE to add write capability (read is supported as standard.)

That's what I was afraid off since I sometimes work in many different MAC computers although my home computer is Windows. The good news is that I don't have to spend any more of my free time looking for information on how to do it and that the hard drive doesn't really have much on it so it wont be a problem to reformat it.

Thanks for the quick response.

Use NTFS and add plugin

I had occasion to "rescue" an HD movie on a friends full-to-the-brim iMac. The solution I had was to format the external as NTFS on my windows machine, then install the linux based NTFS writing module on the Mac so it could write to the drive. (I then authored on BluRay on my Win machine.)
