In my recent post "Update on the ‘Four Mysteries of the Universe…" I highlighted the fact that 3 out of 4 ‘mysteries’ had been answered. Well, Apple answered mystery #2: AVCHD editing software today with the release of Final Cut Pro 6.0.1. The Final Cut Pro update page states:
New in Final Cut Pro 6.0.1 Update
Improves overall stability, resolves issues with long filenames on non-HFS systems, includes improvements for both FxPlug plug-ins and master templates. Log and Transfer support for the AVCHD format.
I think I can hear a collective sigh of relief from many Mac using purchasers of cameras such as Sony’s HDR-SR7 or HDR-SR1 cameras as they can now (after months and months since the cameras came out!) edit the footage from these cameras!
So, go get your wallets out and buy Final Cut Studio Pro 2 and get editing that AVCHD source footage!
