A client is looking to upgrade to FCP 7 because he wants to take advantage of AVC Intra. anybody doing this now? Would love to hear if the group thinks this is a good idea.

Thanks,

mike

It's a great idea. Have a look at my repsonse on the FCP forum.

Works fine for me. You still have to use the Log and Transfer window to import the AVC-I footage, and FCP7 gives the footage a QuickTime "wrapper", so the resulting media files will be QuickTime, not MXF. But the process goes very quickly--far more quickly than converting the AVC-I to ProRes, as FCP6 had to do (not to mention the fact that ProRes took up a lot more disk space).

Regarding any metadata in your AVC-I, it's carried over to the Quicktime-wrapped file, but FInal Cut can't see it/use it. Final Cut Server apparently can, but I haven't tried that myself.

Great idea. I just upgraded to FCP 7 last night. I was running 6.0.6. I left everything on my cpu in place. Plugins, settings etc.

Installed the upgrade. Took quite awhile. About 4hrs.

Launched FCP 7, perfect. Everything moved over fine AND I went to Log & Transfer and BAM, those P2 files came right in. YEAH.

I was having problems before with this.

FYI, I'm running and staying w/ OS 10.5.7 for now.

So, great idea.

When editing with these wrapped AVC-I clips, what kind of RT performance is there? Also curious what the render hit is if effects like 3 color are applied.

This sounds like the situation I was in with RED proxy files.
