I have been testing our line of QuickTime components with MC6. It appears that they will work reasonably well with the Macintosh version of Media Composer 6 on MacOSX 10.7.x.
Currently, you can use the built in QuickTime AMA to work with our QuickTime components. This includes the Cineon/DPX Pro for FCS, ARRI Camera Toolkit and Phantom Cine Toolkit products. When the components are installed, you can use the AMA importer to import a Cineon or DPX sequence, an ARRIRAW (.ari files) sequence or a Phantom Cine file from a Phantom Camera. As with Final Cut Pro, you can easily playback the footage on the timeline, without transcoding or rendering.
- We are working on specific AMA plugins to provide better integration with Media Composer 6. There are some house-keeping steps that we want to perform, to make your lives a little easier. This would be similar to the Final Cut Pro plugins we include.
- We are also investigating a Windows version of the products too. This is a huge undertaking, so please stay tuned. A lot of work is needed to complete a first version.
- The testing with Media Composer 6 was not extensive. However, I believe the products' performance should be similar to that of Final Cut Studio. Our testing indicates this. However, only time and experience will let us know for sure.
