Ok I've been trying to search the threads to find a definitive answer but cant seem to find one. I recently bought a Canon HF S200 which can record in 1080p 24fps. I'm now looking into buying an iMac 27" i7 and Final Cut Express to edit the videos. I'm pretty positive, from reading previous threads, that FCE does not support 1080p. I would like to be able to record on my Canon in 1080p, edit the video and then burn to dvd or blu-ray. I just need a straight forward answer on how to keep the quality from the camera to computer to tv. I dont see the point in buying a camera that records in 1080p if I'm not going to be able to watch it on my tv in the same resolution. All I want is 1080p to 1080p, NOT 1080p to 720p, or 1080p to 1080i or anything of the sort. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm also open to using other software besides FCE. However purchasing Final Cut Pro might be a little out of my price range so something close to the price of FCE would be great. P.S. Thanks again. I'm looking forward to making the convert to mac.
