It would be real nice to have a plugin for the EX that would work with Final Cut 5.1 and 6.0. What are the chances?!

Has anyone used this new software to successfully load the three downloadable EX1 clips into FCP?

If so, what's the technique?

I saw XDCAM xfer 2.1 plugin demonstrated with FCP 6.0.2 tonight at the Moving Pictures Collective meeting (NYFCP User's group) at the Apple Store in Soho NYC.

A woman from Sony (forgot her name) popped in an SXS card into a MacBookPro and the plugin was pointed at the card and the clips popped in to the xfer software which allowed you add names, make subclips, etc and then import into FCP browser. It all happened so fast (credit to the speed of the xfer).

That's interesting. Anything else you can tell us about the event?

I'm fully updated to 6.0.2 and have installed the available Sony software. It opens in FC and does what it's supposed to (I think) but it won't import an MP4 that I downloaded and put on my media drive. There must be a procedure for this that someone knows. I'm totally new to this non-tape based stuff so there's a bit of curve here.

So the xfer 2.1 software is compatible with the NON-INTEL macs but this other PLUG -IN is not? I know the brochure says that Intel is needed, but has there been any updates?
