I certainly hope so - and quick. The new sony HDV codec is vital to the growth of DV on the desktop, I expect, and hope to see an implimentation in OSX over firewire, and as a type in QuickTime soon. Any word from developers on this front would be most welcome. Also JVCs codec is of interest. How to tackle the large group of pictures in these codecs is an interesting problem - anoyone have a nifty solution up their sleves for this?

    Apple has already announced (in press releases, referred to in posts at random on DV filmmaking sites) support for HDV codecs (both JVC and Sony) in the next version of Final Cut Pro HD, which will be released early next year. In the meantime, you can use FCPHD 4.5 with third party tools to do it (check the bottom of apple's final cut page for a list) Its really not a bad codec-- the file sizes are nearly equivelent to DV, albeit with MPEG-y artifacting on occasion.
