Just to be clear, the Xeon processors used in the new desktop Macs are also available for PCs, so no difference there. For now Apple's pricing for a quad-core computer appears to be quite decent, so if you can run the software you need then the Mac Pro hardware may indeed be worth considering. As far as Final Cut Pro is concerned, it appears to be lagging behind Windows-based programs for both importing MXF files and mixing different types of video footage on one timeline.

Codec for DVCPRO HD 720p60 ?

I have the same problem. Have there been any recent developments? A codec I can download perhaps?

I was given some footage in DVCPRO HD 720p60 QuickTime format from
Final Cut Pro that I need to work with in After Effects and possibly Lightwave, but I can't even look at it because I don't have that codec on my PC. I even upgraded to Quicktime 7 Pro in hopes that would include the codec I needed.

Can I convert this to something usable? or do I need to go back to my
client and ask for uncompressed video?

A Fix

Hey Don,

I followed a link from an earlier post about the Raymaker program, and it turns out there is a Raylight decoder that does what you need. I had the same issue of DVCPRO HD footage in MOV format that I needed to edit via After Effects on my PC so I downloaded the trial version and it worked! I just bought the full version ($95) - well worth it. Go here to get the decoder:

Hope that helps!
