Seems like a no brainer to me, LumiereHD wins.

Heath,

Based on what they advertise they can only send transport stream back to DVHS.

The $500 HD Toolkit might but the MPEG encoder for that package still isn't shipping. It mentions a shipping date of 2nd Quater, 2004...so they have a few days left...

Heuris not shipping HDV solution

The latest update is that Heuris stopped shipping products to edit HDV in FCP.

I just noticed that they are, at least their phone number, in L.A. Also, they sell the Indie HD toolkit through resellers...

Heath,

Do you know of any reseller selling the $500 Indie HD toolkit?

They are no longer offering Indie HD Toolkit for sale, at least not on their website. It has this to say:
"HEURIS' Indie HD Toolkit is now sold exclusively through OEM integration and 1st tier distribution. If you are a distributor wishing to sell this product please contact Brian Quandt at HEURIS, you may email him at mrmpeg@heuris.com."

"Apple Computer has announced support for HDV within its product line, individuals seeking HDV support should contact Apple directly, there will no longer be a need to purchase a 3rd party solution to support HDV, for more information visit their website at www.apple.com."

I looked at Apple's site and saw nothing new on the HDV situation.

Apple won't release HDV support in FCP for a while.

Looks like they weren't able the complete their $500 Indie HD Toolkit by "2nd Quarter" like they announced and advertised on their site for months.

So they "lied," or am I off base?

Heath,

I don't think they lied as much as they couldn't complete the product.

Oh...Gotcha...

What do you mean by complete, though?
