CineForm and competitors

Ed,

More than Apple has announced HDV support in the last few days. This Sony camera is creating the first major wave of HDV, clearly indicated by today's announcements from Adobe, Apple, Canopus and ULead. Everyone is going to be a player. CineForm will remain the leader for high performance software based HDV and HD production. Stay tuned for CineForm annoucements in the coming months.

Whoa...

But I'll wait for a pro version with good audio. Of course I need to make some cash with the HD10 first...

You don't need to: the camera does it internally. It offers a mode that simulates 24P and one that simulates 30P. I'm sure neither will be the resolution that you could get from true 24P and 30P, but hey, starting at 1440x1080 resolution, I'll bet the resulting 24P/30P conversions will look pretty good...

Interlaced is always easier to do transfers to 24P.

> But I'll wait for a pro version with good audio.

Having been introduced to a Beachtek/XL1 combo a few days ago, and knowing a bit about what goes on with the audio with such short cables, I must say that if the AD and input circuitry are good, having unbalanced audio is not really a big deal. Note that I have a PDX10 with XLR inputs: t's just like having a built-in Beachtek of sorts, just more expensive ;-)

I haven't seen any mention of Apple supporting HDV yet, ie, they're still working on it. I even ran a software update on my G5 and nothing is available for FCP HD.

Along with the announcement of the HDR-FX1, Apple Computer is announcing support for the HDV spec with their popular video editing program, Final Cut. "Native HDV support in future releases of Final Cut will enable our customers to create high quality HD content with affordable HDV cameras, including Sony's much anticipated HDR-FX1 camcorder," said Rob Schoeben, Apple's Vice President of Applications Marketing.

That's just Final Cut Pro HD. Can someone link to the part about Apple? Was that in the USA press release? I skimmed through it, so shame on me for not looking closer. <g>

I think the HDV update is for Final Cut Pro HD but I could be mistaken.

The quote was from this link.

ps-I just got an email back from DVFilm, a video-to-35mm film transfer house (and more) and they say:

"Looks promising. 60i HD will convert well to 24 as long as you use 1/60
sec shutter speed."

I shoot all my HD10 stuff (at least from now on) in 1/60, except for some Hurricane Frances stuff where I set it to Auto.

Announcing support and having support are always two different things. The significant quote from Apple "Native HDV support in future releases of Final Cut ..." The "future releases" sections means it is not done yet. The "native" part means it will be slow (native 1080i60 is much slower than native 720p30.) :)

Apple's own site is a little more generic in reference to HDV.

Quote:
HDV Support Coming
Apple Computer is pleased to announce that it has joined the growing list of companies that are supporting the HDV format. HDV will be implemented in future versions of Apple products. Customers can begin using HDV with Final Cut Pro today through third party products such as Lumiere HDV and the Heuris Indie HD and Pro-Indie HD toolkits.

It should be without loss of resolution as well, shouldn't it?
