MXF Import QT: This plugin is a MXF reader, importer, interpreter and file access plug-in for the QuickTime system framework. It allows to natively open and access a broad range of MXF variations without converting or referencing to the QuickTime movie format. The unique integration enables Final Cut Studio, Final Cut Server and other solutions to directly work with native MXF media.

The QuickTime component enables direct access to GXF files in the entire operating system to provide a greater feature set for more flexible file worflows. Final Cut Studio, Final Cut Server and other QuickTime compatible applications can directly read and open GXF with AVC-Intra, MPEG-2 and DV compression types.
AVC-Intra QT: This is the first AVC-Intra codec for QuickTime and Mac OS X with export and encoding capabilities. The QuickTime export component makes AVC-Intra encoding available in Mac OS X`s QuickTime framework and accessible by every Mac OS X application. The exporter has been optimized to smoothly interface with the new Apple AVC-Intra decoder that is part of Final Cut Studio 3.
DNG QT: DNG and CinemaDNG are standarized and open RAW formats for digital photo and film cameras. DNG QT is a decoder component for QuickTime to read and access the Adobe DNG and CinemaDNG formats in Mac OS X.

MXF Import CS4: MXF Import CS4 is a plug-in for the Adobe Creative Suite 4 Production Premium. It enables applications like After Effects and Premiere Pro to directly interface with our MXF Import QT component in Mac OS X.

The clip duration updates just like in Final Cut Pro.
MXF Export Suite: The MXF Export Suite is a bundle of export plug-ins for Final Cut Pro and Compressor. GC Export FCP and GC Export FCS are universal OP1a export plug-ins for Final Cut Pro and Compressor. P2 Export FCP is a dedicated Panasonic P2 export plug-in for Final Cut Pro.
update FCP Media: Access to growing video files has become very popular. If you edit live video feeds in Final Cut Pro then this is the right solution for you. The green button allows you to quickly refresh all media files that have been loaded into Final Cut Pro. The duration and media contents of video clips refreshes with just one single mouse click. Another feature of update FCP Media is the ability to sync contents from folders with bins in the Final Cut Pro browser. This improves the operator’s import process when new media files from folders need to be loaded into Final Cut Pro. Imagine your graphic department renders 2D or 3D animations to specific folders on your central storage. Instead of importing all files one after the other into Final Cut Pro you just need to hit the blue button and all new files get loaded into your project bins.
