FCP 5.1.2 NOW AVAILABLE with 720P24 & 720P25 native support

UPDATE Sept 26: FCP 5.1.2 is now available for download. http://www.apple.com/support/downloa...cutpro512.html

or you can run "software update."


Please Note: I have just tested this version's "Easy Setup" for HDV 720p24 and it does not properly set the device control. For proper HDV 23.98fps TC capture you should simply go into "Audio/Video Settings" and select:
"HDV - 720p24" as your Sequence Preset
"HDV" as your Capture Preset
Duplicate the "HDV Firewire NDF" device preset and change the frame rate to 23.98. See this post for more specific instructions.

BR-HD50 Users will need to update their firmware to properly capture with FCP v5.1.2.
Please see this thread for more information.


ORIGINAL POST:
The reports are starting to flow in from IBC. Mike Curtis has posted some info at HDforIndies, and our very own Chris Hurd is on the floor in Amsterdam collecting information for us.

Bottom line: No more fiddling with LumiereHD, HDVxDV, DVHSCap or MPEGStreamclip.

FCP 5.1.2 will fully support the capture (with TC), editing, and output of JVC's ProHD 720P24 and 720P25
(along with the already long-time supported 720P30.)
The only catch is that we will probably have to wait until October for the release.

This free update will only be available to FCP5.1 owners. If you own FCP5.0 or an earlier version, now is the perfect time to order your Universal Crossgrade to FCS 5.1.

If v5.1 is installed on your system, you should be able to run the software update app from the Apple menu to automatically update FCP 5.1 or 5.1.1 to 5.1.2. (when the update is officially released.)

Rumour is this release will also add:
P2 faster import, batch import, preview before import
XDCAM HD native support for all frame rates and resolutions
Canon 24F native support

Finally I'll be able to use my HD100 as I thought I would when I bought it a year ago! ... I have to say, owning one of these things has truly been a labor of love (or maybe just a labor depending on how you look at it). The image quality is stunning ... but she really makes you work for it ...

Avid PM told me December at the earliest. AXPro version 6.0.

Well at least we have some decent news from Apple. Looks like we may be ditching Avid (after 8 years+) for FCP soon anyway. Can't argue with the cost/features these days.

Hey Tim -- hope this helps -- I asked Apple and received pretty much the exact same answer as Mike Curtis, it's about a month away. Enjoy the attached pics. Click the thumbnail images to see them big.

Awesome Chris. Thank you.

Highway #4 has been published on the JVC UK site with the FCP article on page 22. There is also update information on Premiere Pro 2, Edius, & Avid (Liquid.)

How funny when I got this camera a year ago they told me that FCP5 would support it within a month. A year later we are still looking at a month later. At least it looks promising =)

LOL!

Very similar story with Avid. Odd, really.

Will FCP 5.1.2 allow for editing 60P with the new JVC HD200 & 250?

No. 24P, 25P, 30P HDV1 only. However, I'm sure the transition will be much faster and easier for Apple with 50P and 60P since there will be no skipped frames/flagged frames to think about.

Wonderful news, Tim! And thank goodness they're including 25p!

So all these workflows kindly posted by some of you folks can eventually be put to one side?!?
Shame, I was looking forward to wrestling with all the various plug ins and shortcuts to enable HDV footage!

Slightly off subject but does anyone know of companies who offer mac & s/w packages i.e. iMac with FCP studio (and logic pro 7 for that matter) bundled at a discounted rate?
