Final Cut Studio 2

- FCP 6
- Motion 3
- Soundtrack Pro 2
- Color
- Compressor 3

FCP 6:

Open format Timeline
The new open format Timeline in Final Cut Pro 6 lets you mix and match source material in a wide range of formats and even different frame rates. Freely edit a combination of HD and SD, including NTSC and PAL — all in real time.

ProRez looks interesting. 10bit 4:2:2 HD, wow. Add the $3500 I/O HD box and you've got the makings of an Avid Adrenaline for cheap. If Avid doesn't hit a homerun with their press event later today, and they don't add HDV 1 24p, then I think will be editing on FCP 6 by the end of the summer because Apple has provided a total solution that ships next month. It's hard to switch but I'm impressed with the list of features and affordable pricing.

Add in the new timeline format/scaling, "Color" (Color correction with 8 secondaries!! Geeze.), and the many other enhancements, and media management.

I can't wait to get a demo...

I think the ProRez codec is the biggest thing for me. Getting out of HDV ASAP for editing is pretty big. And if it can be done at SD file sizes instead of DVC Pro HD- where do I sign!

I love the fact that the IO-HD has HDMI i/o which should work well with the HD50 deck.

I was expecting FCP to support 720p60 over firewire but no dice there.

If you are already using FCP there is no advantage to "getting out of HDV." In fact, using ProRes only adds a compression step, increases disk bandwidth cutting the number of RT streams, and increases storage needs. If you edit native HDV, you are always working in 4:4:4 uncompressed within FCP.

Upgrade from ANY version of FCP is $699.

Interesting that "HD" at 720p50 is missing.

And, HDV support is listed at 720p24 and 720p25. What happened to 720p30?

And no listing of 720p50 support.

Is JVC announcing anything new?? I guess not. I was hoping for a new HDV deck with HD SDI.

Also, Avid didn't announce hardly squat. They did announce that Liquid 7.2 has JVC ProHD support. Wait, I'm confused. I thought that was a part of v. 7.1 announced last year!!! I've edited HDV 24p in Liquid. Am I in an alternate universe??? Same as it ever was...Same as it ever was...

Anyway, no HDV 1 24p Avid Xpress support. That's it, they're going to let Liquid be the JVC ProHD app.

Steve, because we shoot 720p60 we are essentially forced out ot HDV over firewire with FCP. So it's either AIC, DVC Pro HD, or the new kid on the block- ProRez.

I've not been happy with AIC as it intorduces a bit of noise. DVC Pro HD with Kona & Decklink gets a tad soft.

I'm hoping ProRez with IO-HD is indestiguishable from it's source.

Just to make Steve's statement a bit clearer.

Upgrade from versions earlier than Final Cut Studio are $699.

Upgrade from Final Cut Studio is $500

We used it "unoffically" -- now we can use it "offically." I feel better already. :)

I wonder if the HDV capturing bug has been cured?

A few weeks ago I posted that I have been told by who I would consider a reliable sournce that JVC have some major announcements for NAB 07 but that info got promptly moved out of this forum into the area 51 forum. To me this thread belongs in the FCP forum much more than that thread belonged in area 51, go figure.

I have no idea what it is, but I wouldn't discount JVC just yet (maybe in another 24 hours though...).

Guy, it's DVINFO policy to put anything that doesn't have an 'official' press release or other confirming documentation from the manufacturer into AREA 51. We want to maintain journalistic integrity and having a forum dedicated to rumor and speculation allows us to talk gossip and not pass it on as gospel truth.

I promise you weren't being picked on.

So no news from JVC huh? I was really hoping for a HD100 compaion like the A1.

As for FCP, I imagine that 50/60P support should be quicker than the almost 1.5 years it took last time since the 24/25P support was welcomed so well. And Apple is now beating the crap out of Avid, so that would just be another blow.

As for Avid lack of interest in us JVC users (same goes for the Canon and Sony HDV), they should be ashamed of themselves. Yes, the "Best Editor on the planet." - Bullshit. I am through with Avid. I knew nothing was being done in Version 5 for JVC and I came to terms with that, but to hear NOTHING at NAB. Rediculous.

I ordered my FCS upgrade. No more Avid.
