Imagine Products ( has listened to the many Mac users crying out for an affordable P2 viewing and logging tool and in response has introduced P2 Log (, a new low cost sibling to their popular full-featured HD Log ( logging software.

P2 Log ( is specifically designed to be used with the P2 video format and retains essential HDLog functionality needed for working with P2 media, including: play clips, delete clips, save P2 files, mark/select clips, export FCP XML, edit text and clip names, edit SD cards, find/replace, and sort. The software is being introduced at a very attractive price of just $99. It will be sold as a download and a demo version is available from their web site.

I've been using HD Log for a while and like it a lot, but I've been suggesting to Imagine Products that they come out with a more affordable, lean, and mean application. I'm happy that only a few months later, they have responded. Today is a good day for Macintosh users shooting with P2 media and ingesting to a laptop in the field or on the set. My hats off to Dan Montgomery and the fine folks at Imagine Products.

This is great news.

It's unfortunate that those like myself who just purchased HD Log didn't know of P2 Log's eventual arrival - we could have saved $500!

I was getting ready to go through some of my P2 files and delete some of the ones that I'm not going to ever use. This looked like a good tool so I downloaded the demo and it seems to work well. If this does what I think it will, it will be nice to use to rename those funky HVX random clip names after they are imported to my desktop, but before they are imported into FCP.

Has anyone else here used the P2 Log with their HVX footage yet?

Do you like it?

Yes, I have it and it works very nicely on my Apple PowerBook.
A must have if you need to quickly view clips in the field.
