As noted elsewhere, I have had really good results both playing and editing on the Intel Dual Core Mini, first the 512MB version and starting today the 2GB version. Using the HDTV as the monitor gives real WYSIWYG. The one fly in the ointment is the requirement that the clips, which have already been loaded onto the Mac HD, be loaded again into iMovie, which takes MUCH longer than the original upload to the HD. I am used to Vegas, where shortcuts to the clips are used.

On the other hand, the render time in iMovie is very fast, so perhaps it is a take and give back situation, assuming that you will use most of the clips. I don't see any other choices at the moment anyway, since Apple information says that Final Cut (Pro or Express) will not edit MP4.

Correction:

It's only video shot in the Web-HQ mode that is 5th Gen iPod compatible...

Fine that you corrected your assumption Graham. I would have been really interested...now I may forget the iPod for that kind of activities.

'The HD1s files will play on the new iPod' I read somewhere and just took it literally.

That's not so much assumption as inaccurate reporting.

You are right Graham, wrong terminology.
In the mean time, I still don't find any multimedia viewer/card reader/external storage able to store and read HD1 footage.
Do you think it's still worth waiting or do I have to forget about it?

Sorry, no idea.

It's larger cards I think will be the important step, as the device already has such a nice screen.

I am still waiting for 2 x 4Gb Transcend SDcards that should arrive tomorrow.
Any idea when 8Gb will be available in Europe?

USB "bridges" are available. They allow two USB devices to transfer files directly (without a computer). However, they are somewhat pricey and I've never used one.

Hi Calin,
I will discard the "iPod" option since it seems impossible to directly monitor the transferred footage. I definitely agree with Graham's choice which promotes an extensive use of SD cards.

I have been sticking out of this forum because of time restraints but here is another spin on Ipod.

http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/showthread.php?t=65832
http://www.bella-usa.com/Catapult.htm

As I understand it IShops are selling Sanyos. It is actually useful functionality to be able to transfer and monitor Mpeg4 and H264 cameras on disk to the IPOD. There is linux IPOD programming systems and maybe more native ones, and even a Linux system that is cross compatible between different brands of players (google it) but it is much easier to just talk somebody else into it.

As there are a number of H264 cameras coming and who knows how many Mpeg4 releases still left, there is a market to do this (not to mention all those notorious little cheap solid state handicams that better fit the IPOD).

Bella above might be interested, even Apple, though I think point out that there will be a number of these cams on the market Bella might least likely to not show interest. For Apple though it would be a marketable complementary use for their system, and the cameras they sell in shop. Their is also the , odd, chance that the people that use it might want to sell footage through Itunes.

Anyway, just an crazy idea.
