cineform FC Express

I've been using Prospect and Aspect on windows for years.

I have a requirement to do some work on Final Cut Express on a macbook. I need to transcode footage from XDCAM, DV and MJPEG and work with them together.

Does neoscene/cineform work in FCE? Does it work better than Apple Intermediate Codec?

I'm on an older version of Prospect 3.4.6, i suspect to get files that would work on a mac would also mean upgrading my windows versions too? (I did try taking a cineform file from that over to the mac with the neo codec but it doesn't work)

Are there many people on Macs using cineform, or does ProRes tend to be the defacto choice?

Just to add to this post. I downloaded a trial of neoscene. But that won't open an XDCAM EX MP4 file. I'm missing some kind of codec to open these files, but cannot find anything from sony. I suspect that perhaps Final Cut Pro has native support for these and not FCE or a stock mac os x?

many thanks

Paul, unfortunately Apple doesn't support any QT codecs in FCE, so CineForm does not work in FCE. Regarding formats, NeoHD supports XDCam EX but NeoScene does not. NeoScene is focused on consumer HDV and AVCHD. CineForm has a very large customer base on Mac but they are all running FCP.
