"This is a no-fee license agreement between the TA and Apple."

I read about this at ShowBiz Expo. No need to call it "IEEE 1394" or "iLink" anymore; it's oficially FireWire even idf you don't have a Mac. Amazing, and in my opinion, perfectly appropriate.

The URL you posted directs you to the installer download only.
This download will install live over the internet. If you want,
like me, to download the full package and install later you can
download that here:

Be Careful with this Upgrade

Apparently, as usual, there are still some compatibility issues between QT6 and iMovie (for those who use this nle). I don't know of any Final Cut Pro issues but, if you rely on FCP for your livelihood, consider letting the early adopters skins their knees before installing the update. During the update to v.5 I (and many others) got my nose broken by being too quick on the trigger with that upgrade.

Boy, I know the feeling about earlier QT's and FCP. But late tonight on the FCP software page for FCP Apple added a note about 6 not being approved yet for FCP and to stay with QT 5.

Cinestream Too

Upgrading to new QTs before they are vetted can be a mistake...then try to go back!

Cinestream users are waiting a little bit before migrating to the new QT6.

Apple has an uninstaller for 6 but you still need a copy of your Pro Key for 5 to work with FCP and DVDSP. If Apple took the uninstalller off let me know, I still have a copy of it and can post it.

IML Moves To Intel and Linux

Read a story at CNet. Industrial Light and Magic (IML) is starting to migrate towards Intel cpus and Linux. IML will still use their RISC systems for the most elaborate work, reserving Intel machines for the lower end work and rendering farms.

The reason are pretty simple: costs and manpower. IML can install a machine for about 20% of that of RISC based system. Further, experienced manpower is easier to find too.

I doubt those RISC chips can outperform the latest x86 chips.
A lot has changed from a couple of years ago!

I'm sure they have Macs. At least for basic Photoshop. I think what this shift is talking about is in raw rendering power.

JPEG gone? No More?

Here is an interesting article I stumbled on this morning. http://theregister.co.uk/content/4/26339.html A Texas company, Forgent, bought some old patent that is apparently key to JPEG. ISO is considering withdrawing JPEG as a format if Forgent continues to sue for patent infringement. They got Sony for $15 million. Interesting reading.
