Panasonic's just released the P2 Contents Management System software, which is a new version of P2 Viewer plus a database management system, as a free software download. And, get this -- it works on the Mac! Finally!

But I noticed that it will not work with QT 7.2. Has anyone tried it with 7.2? This looks really cool, but without 7.2 support it is worthless to me.

Help me Panasonic...

Yes, i know that it says that it WILL NOT work with 7.2, but I also know that some of the more daring folk here sometimes push that envelope and was wondering what would happen if it were installed on a machine with 7.2.

What exactly doesn't work with 7.2?
Are there plans to make it work with 7.2?

These are things that my inquiring mind wants to know.

I believe Ken's point was they slammed the corral shut after the horse got out.

Am I the only one that noticed that Apple released a bunch of new software yesterday that REQUIRES QuickTime 7.2? As of yesterday, 7.2 support is no longer an option... Panasonic needs to get cracking on this...

My point exactly. I had just updated everything when I saw the original post. I was so excited to see this finally available for Mac but alas it was only available for a few moments. Hopefully, Panasonic will get cracking and get it fixed...FAST!

Well, given their record of how long it took them to get a P2 Reader for the Mac (OVER two years..more!) I don't know how fast they will get "crackin'." The P2 division of Panasonic failed to see how big of a market this format would be on the Mac, so they didn't even have plans to design this in the first place. Now to update that for QT 7.2 (which is STILL buggy and I REFUSE to load it) might take them a month...or two.

Could it be that Panasonic and Apple are direct competators, they both build laptops?
Could it be that Panasonic is pissed at Apple for going to bed with Red?
All conjecture on my part.
Pretty happy with recent items such as the dual adaptor and 16G cards.

Side bonus, once you install this application you can drag and drop MXF audio and video directly into FCP. Try it. Very NICE. :)

Yes I have been using this method on the Quicktimes made with the FS-100 since version 3.01. You get spoiled fast. No more "log and import". It really speeds up your workflow and overall productivity!
The P2 workflow is finally growing up!

Install the P2 CMS program first and it gives you an MXF importer component.

I must be missing something here. If I drag in an mxf, there's video but no audio.

Is this what you mean?

You need to be running the latest version of OS X and QT. And yes MXF is audio or video and needs to be merged manually in FCP. Thus this is a bit more complex than log and transfer.

i have 10.4.9 and quicktime 7.6.1, because later versions are buggy.

P2CMS is running, but the drag and drop function doesnt work.

do you think it has something to do with 10.4.10 ?

best regards

I am on 10.4.10 and 7.1.6 and it works for me. FCP 5.1.4. I don't think it's really all that great though, hand syncing clips is not for me. I do get a warning saying this file is not optimized for FInal Cut Pro, though, when I import it.

Does anyone else find this software weird? great for backup purposes, but the ingest feature creates a ton of more files on your machine and logging is really slow.

Glad it's free though.

I'm looking forward to that Noah... just as soon as it works with QT 7.2...
