All I can really say is, I wish I could use it MORE. I beta tested it...and then used it to import footage for a small project, single station so all native MXF import. Great to a) be able to edit the metadata of the footage, add stuff, change things and b) import ALL OF THE METADATA to FCP. As Log and Transfer ignores 95% of the metadata.

Then there was this one show that we needed the footage to be shared by 4 machines. So I didn't do native, as we'd need all the machines to have it. Instead, I did all the modifying, if needed, then exported a batch list that I imported into FCP that contained ALL the metadata...and then batch captured (imported) the footage as QT, so that all the machines could access the files.

This, IMHO, is the best software for working with P2 in FCP ever invented. Raylight is nice and quick, but the metadata is all in the screen shot that is frame 2. And Calibrated is cool, but doesn't allow for editing of metadata, adding of metadata...or the really slick import options that P2 Flow has.

I am REALLY jonzing to do another P2 show so I can utilize it again.

How's that?
