    BTW I guess you played Youtube through Flash player which isn’t yet updated to support retina so at least with scaling there were some sort of double scaling involved. First Flash scales to ‘old fullscreen’ and then OSX pixel doubles outcome to Retina. I think it’d be fair to play video Quicktime Player which supports retina and scales accordingly.

    [Jeremy Garchow] “Small little GUI elements “
    whoa, wait. my Fcpx is at 10.0.4 which came out before the retina, and the only thing MAS wants to update is Motion content (1gb worth). That sounds like a lot more than GUI elements. Trying to download now, but MAS is super slow in this part of the world…but thx for helping me understand what this is all about…

    EDIT: My MAS is broke… not seeing updates there, but on the store I see they exist…FCPX at .05… arg. But I get how small GUI elements would get messed up at 200+ppi vs. the old resolution.

    Fcpx is now at 10.0.5. Need to update through AppStore for that one.

    The content you are downloading is all the templates, backgrounds, generators, etc.

    Tapio, I’ve been holding my breath for two days waiting for someone who has used Quicktime on the new MacBook Pro with Retina display. You’re the first I’ve seen mention it. Would you be so kind to review this thread and respond to my last comment there near the bottom of the thread re QuickTime? Thank you so much fir your help.

    I just checked a file in Quicktime on the Retina dispaly and it look great. Very close to our broadcast monitor in color and contrast. However I did adjust the gamma in Squeeze when I compressed it.

    Thanks for the note re Quicktime on the Macbook Pro Retina display, Dave. (I miss visiting Santa Barbara!)

    So it looks like QT doesn’t pixel-double the contents when you want it to play actual size. That’s good news. If you have the time, it would be interesting to pause a playback while in actual size and then capture the window contents to see the pixel dimensions. Want to try that with a HD video? I’m hoping then the capture from QT’s frame would indicate a 1920×1080 image and not 3840×2160 pixels!

    In my earlier post to Tapio to which you were responding, I just saw i neglected to copy the thread that I asked Tapio to review! The joys of using the iPhone to work in a forum where everything is so awkward to view. Here’s the missing thread:
