Best HDV import to FCP?

As mentioned before, I'm about to pick up an FX1. I plan to get Lumiere HD to bring the footage into Final Cut, but I know there's a couple programs that are able to import to Final Cut. As far as I know, Lumiere is the best. Is this correct, or is there a better import program I can get? It should be noted that I can't afford to upgrade to FCP5 just yet--I'm using FCPHD.

Doesn't the FCP upgrade only cost slightly more than Lumiere?

It costs $500, but I'm on the acedemic version so I can't upgrade. I have to buy the full version. That will set me back $1300--a lot more than just the $180 for Lumiere.

Fair enough! I have to say I didn't get on with Lumiere at all, but many other people are happy with it.

Not the JVC HD-100? Think about that tasty progressive scan, and that wonderful form factor, not to mention those XLR inputs that can keep your audio tracks free of signals from the local radio stations. And then there's the lens - everything from focus to iris is where it should be - on the barrel; no silly knobs to fidget with as you try to keep your eye on the shot.

If it's the 1080i you're after, think about the world we're moving into, where all the cool monitors are progressive, and where your images will need to be transformed (with a significant resolution loss) before they'll play.

cheers,

A

Look at the date on the post ;)

I bought my FX1 well before the HD100 was released - and as cool as the HD100 is, I'm more than happy with the FX1. :)

I did look at the date - immediatly after making the post. And then I felt silly. But I'm glad the FX1 is working out.

Cheers,
