Sweetness. Those of you with native P2 editing tools (such as MXF4mac) will now be able to import AVC-I material straight to FCP without Log and transfer, and the files will be 10bit YUV. Sweet!

Question for clarification,
"Native AVC-Intra playback for both AVC-Intra 100 and AVC-Intra 50" does that mean you what set your sequence to render to something like ProRes or if/when you export a movie you will have to transcode it, much like you do with R3D clips?

[Michael Sacci] "Question for clarification, "

Yep. It's a decoder only. Still you can bring in native AVC-I, it's a huge step in the right direction.

So we will still need MXF4mac to access all the metadata and avoid the QuickTime wrapping process?

Yes. It looks like FCP7 supports more metadata options, but who knows how excatly it will be implemented. For native editing (and no log and transfer/rewrapping) you will still need MXF4mac.

We release v1.6 of our importer this Monday with full support for FCP7 and the new AVC-Intra codecs.

Looking forward to this. I have been an avid user of HD Log and making reference movies to avoid the quicktime re-wrap and that has been a great help to workflow

I don't get what you mean? FCP 7 imports AVCIntra in the AVCIntra codec...a new codec. And you can edit on an AVCIntra timeline. ProRes not needed.

This section covers it all.

The whole document is very useful. It still needs to be completely updated.

Jeremy answered it, you still have to set the Compress to something other than AVC-I because you can never render anything to that because it is an playback only codec.

I just wanted to make sure I was reading it correctly.

Yes. AVC-I is a decoder only. You cannot compress to AVC-I, but Fcp will decode and play in RT. You will render to ProRes HQ.

It will stay AVC-Intra as long as you don't render anything. Also export to AVC-Intra is currently not possible due to the missing encoding capabilities.
