FCP5 Support

Will FCP5 even recognize this camera? Even if the video you shot with it was 30p?

I looked at some of the Lumiere HD online examples and the workflow seems tedious. Capture, Demux, Convert to QT codec... eeek. Anyone actually going through all this hassle with this camera with FCP?

720p30 is supported in FCP5.

By the way, please use the search feature. This stuff has been covered more times than I can count.

Will Fcp5 Recognize Gy-hd100?

Thanks Nate...

I tried the search and I still can't seem to find a straight answer to the question: WILL FCP5 RECOGNIZE GY-HD100? ...or variations there of... I get no results.

I understand FCP has 720p30 support. I just plan to shoot & edit 30p with this camera and not ever use 24p until there is FCP support. If I connect the GY-HD100 will FCP5 recognize this camera?

Yes. FCP5 recognizes and works with 720p30 from the cam.

Thanks. If FCP would not recognize then it would have been a deal breaker.

FCP support

Hi Craig,

The GYHD100 is listed right on Apple's website as supported, at 720/30P:

24p support in FCP

Why is apple being so vague in their support for 24p. I’m no software expert but isn’t 24p less “system intensive” than 30p?

There are rumors about an upgrade for 5.0 users as well as rumors about FCP 6.0 having support for 24p but nobody knows when or if 6.0 will be released w/ 24p support.

It would also suck to have to pay for an upgrade since I just purchased 5.1

If so many people are complaining about this, why doesn’t apple just release the stupid patch?

Many of us on the PC side are wondering the exact same thing about support for Avid Xpress Pro HD. It's a frustrating wait- I feel your pain, sir.

Hey you great complainers...:-)
Try to be a Mac Avid editor, eh? How about NO frigging HD/HDV support at all... Yes, yes, here is the prayer, everybody say it with me: please, let there be light, rain and some decent upgrade for Avid XP on the Mac side this NAB!

Scott,

I merged your thread into this one from earlier today because they are the EXACT SAME TOPIC.

We've had this discussion over and over. The bottom line is that all NLE companies are working on it and will probably make their official press releases at NAB 06 (in 3 weeks.)

Until then I refer you again to this previous thread.

Well, now you can buy one of the new Intel based Macs and have Windows XP and OS X on the same machine! No more excuses for not switching.

I think the idea is that once the "PC guy" who likes Apple design buys the Mac with the intent to install Windows, he/she will try out, and fall in love with the Mac's "digital lifestyle" software and start using Mac OS X on a daily basis.
It really is infectious once you use it.

This "halo effect" started working for Apple when they released the Windows version of iTunes and started selling Windows compatible iPods. There may be a similar halo effect with this move.
