I work on an intel iMac, with Final Studio 2 (FCP 6.0.6). So far, I've worked with HDV only, and its been fine.
I am now thinking of buying a small camcorder, like the Canon HF M400/41 as my introduction to tapeless HD shooting.
1. Will it be possible to edit these files in FCP 6.0.6. ? I would've happily upgraded to FCP 7, but Apple has withdrawn everything except FCP X now! And I don't plan to invest in that right now.
2. If editing them in FCP 6 is problematic or cumbersome, am I better off staying within the HDV domain for now? I don't wish to buy the camcorder and then find that post is a nightmare.
