    Does anyone know about the compatability of the kona2 and fcp5. I’m about to start editing a film and want to upgrade but want to make sure that that is not a bad decision. I would hope that it’s fine and might even boost performance in a way but I’m not positive, any Ideas?

    It is always a BAD idea to upgrade in the middle of a project.

    If you must start now then you should finish your project in FCP 4.5 and upgrade to FCP 5 after completion.

    The deal is though, that I am just offline logging for the next four weeks so I thought that it might be ok to save all those files and transfer them seeing that I’m not actually editing untill then.

    if your just logging clips, do whatever. keep the tape obviously. you will heal quicker from a cpu crashed project than from a good snowboarding wipe, that is for sure.

    what you will see most editors who have long careers say is to wait. it is like playing texas hold ’em–going all in works every time except once!

    I talked to the AJA guys last week and they said that Kona2
    is compatible with FCP5.

    They said that the Io will have to wait for the drivers; which they
    released yesterday.

    Still, I would not switch just yet; you have 4-6 weeks anyway…
