OS X Jaguar out Oct. 24th...

http://www.apple.com/macosx/

Does this mean support for HDV?

Aren't they just talking about a new version of OS X?

They are talking about a new version of OSX, but that version contains a new HD capable codec called Pixlet. The hope is that you will be able to do a conversion of your HDV footage to Pixlet and then edit HD realtime on a Mac, and then convert back to whatever format you choose once you're done. This OSX version won't support the HDV format natively as far as I'm aware.

Okay, how do we transfer it back to the camera? Pixlet, 4HDV?

On the Mac I'd say the 4HDV plugin to encode to MPEG2 + Womble on the PC for TS transcoding is still your best bet, and I'd go to DVHS, not the camera (or you'll wear it out pretty quickly). This isn't going to solve the "re-ecoding to MPEG2TS" part of the problem I don't think, but there are many other HD formats you can go to.

So I surfed over to apple.com to check out pixlet and Panther.

I did a search after finding nothing.

Got this:

"Apple - Mac OS X - Panther
... High-end Video Codec. Pixlet is the first studio-grade codec for filmmakers. Pixlet provides 20-25:1 compression, allowing a 75MB/sec series of frames to be ..."

I hit the link to the Panther overview, didn't see any mention of it. Unless I'm blind. Might not be a big deal, but, I don't know...

At Steve Job's Macworld keynote, the one where they rolled out the G5, he talked about Pixlet being developed so that the folks at Pixar could review work in progress across a network, while maintaining HD quality at reasonable file sizes. Pixar+Wavelet (compression)=Pixlet.

I still have my doubts as to if Pixlet will come into common use as as production codec, or if it's just intended on being an HD delivery codec, perhaps a Quicktime competitor to Windows Media 9?
