Product Comparison Chart for Mac
Here's a straight forward product comparison between Lumiere HD and other solutions to edit HDV on a Mac:

Seems like a no brainer to me, LumiereHD wins.


Heath McKnight June 22nd, 2004 09:53 PM

I thought Heuris could go back to camera...


ps-Lumiere HD are nicer people, too. :-)

Frederic Lumiere June 22nd, 2004 09:59 PM


Based on what they advertise they can only send transport stream back to DVHS.

The $500 HD Toolkit might but the MPEG encoder for that package still isn't shipping. It mentions a shipping date of 2nd Quater, 2004...so they have a few days left...

Heuris not shipping HDV solution
The latest update is that Heuris stopped shipping products to edit HDV in FCP.

Wonder why? $$$$$$$


Heath McKnight August 1st, 2004 07:06 PM

I just noticed that they are, at least their phone number, in L.A. Also, they sell the Indie HD toolkit through resellers...


Frederic Lumiere August 3rd, 2004 05:30 AM


Do you know of any reseller selling the $500 Indie HD toolkit?

Heath McKnight August 3rd, 2004 07:30 AM

I thought I saw mention of it on their website.


Bob England August 3rd, 2004 03:54 PM

They are no longer offering Indie HD Toolkit for sale, at least not on their website. It has this to say:
"HEURIS' Indie HD Toolkit is now sold exclusively through OEM integration and 1st tier distribution. If you are a distributor wishing to sell this product please contact Brian Quandt at HEURIS, you may email him at mrmpeg@heuris.com."

"Apple Computer has announced support for HDV within its product line, individuals seeking HDV support should contact Apple directly, there will no longer be a need to purchase a 3rd party solution to support HDV, for more information visit their website at www.apple.com."

I looked at Apple's site and saw nothing new on the HDV situation.


Frederic Lumiere August 4th, 2004 07:18 AM

Apple won't release HDV support in FCP for a while.

Looks like they weren't able the complete their $500 Indie HD Toolkit by "2nd Quarter" like they announced and advertised on their site for months.

Heath McKnight August 4th, 2004 01:12 PM

So they "lied," or am I off base?


Frederic Lumiere August 7th, 2004 08:02 AM


I don't think they lied as much as they couldn't complete the product.


Heath McKnight August 7th, 2004 08:28 AM


What do you mean by complete, though?
