Ken,
Just so you're prepared hardware-wise, I found out the hard way that the new universal binary for Intel-based Macs DOES NOT support Magic Bullet Editors b/c it is based on Adobe's After Effects Plug-in, which has not been ported to a universal binary. Thus, unless Magic Bullet ports the software as a Final Cut Plug-in or Adobe updates their AE plug-in you won't be able to use those filters.

toolfarm suggested this, but I haven't been able to get it to work:
http://toolfarm.com/pluginfinder/ind...ersal%20Binary
Solution: A New Version of Magic Bullet Editors 2 for Motion Red Giant Software CANNOT provide After Effects plug-ins for Final Cut Pro on Intel if there is no support from Apple. However, we will update our plug-ins to work in the Motion 2 FX Plug API for Intel Macs. That means that all plug-ins that currently run in Final Cut Pro will instead run in Motion 2.1 including Misfire plug-ins. To use the tools on a Final Cut Pro sequence you will need to export the sequence to Motion and apply the plug-ins to the clip(s) in Motion and then use the Motion sequence in Final Cut Pro before you output a final file or print to tape. This is the only solution to the current compatibility issue that Apple has created. Full workflow details and availability will be posted in May.

Thanks for the info Cass. I'd love to see what this setup shoots like without any effects/filters/post applied. Just a nice sunny day with bright colors in view. Do you guys have anything like that, that you're willing to post?

Great Footage once again and a great choice of music as well. Motivity has done quite a job making the HVX200 look good. Keep up the good work.

Hey Rogelio, I think we have sold a couple more HVX's just from footage uploaded here... they played some of the footage at N.A.B this year, a big time director saw it and contacted us, he then bought the camera and is using it for some lower end commercials. He said we fooled him because he thought it was 16mm film.

Cool. But even cooler if we got commission. Yea right!

Did you use a 35mm lens with the M2? If you did, what lens did you use? Congrats on the exposure and the comission.

Well we didn't get commission. I thought i said that below.. and the lenses that we used which i posted earlier were:

lenses: nikon 50mm
nikon telephoto 70-200mm
nikon Micro (macro) 105mm

I think the M2 would be useless if we didn't use 35mm lenses..

????

Sorry about that Cassidy. I misread the comission portion. I'm sure you have convinced at least a few people on this board to invest in the HVX200. It would be nice if Panasonic had a referral program.

I am sooo impressed by Cassidy's footages - that I am planing to buy the HVX200 - the only thing I am afraid of and I guess i need some help here is this... with technology coming up every day, should I go and spend 8G's and get this camera with a few gig storage or wait maybe a year and spend that 8g's on the latest technology @ that time?

But i am absoletly blow away with Cassidy's 35mm's and lenses well done mate... great job!!!!

But if your going to wait that long why not wait another while to get the NEXT greatest thing?

Honestly you can't think like that. If you do you'll wait forever because there is always something new around the corner.

Gene's right. Technology continues to improve day by day. What's great now will be even better later. The key issue is when you will be needing the camera. If you need it soon, get it. If you don't need it for a while, then just wait. I am doing the latter. I don't need an HD camera at the moment. When the time comes, then I'll invest in one. For example one camera I am interested in is the JVC HD100, but I am really glad I did not invest in one, because the Motivity guys have made me think about the HVX200, and the HD200 will be coming out later this year with 60P capabilities. To have either one of these cameras would be a blessing.
