Raylight/Mac 2.04

Raylight for Mac 2.04 is released which fixes some problems with the P2 Card files generated by the P2 Maker function. When playing back clips made by Raylight in the HVX200 camera, you will no longer see the red "X" in the thumbnail view. You will however see a blue "E" which means the footage was edited.

Also we have fixed some problems with importing the MXF files into Avid Express Pro HD or Avid Media Composer, or Final Cut Pro 6 Log and Transfer. You can now take P2 Cards created with Raylight/Mac and import them into these programs.

Raylight for Mac 2

We've released version 2 of Raylight for Mac. Existing users can update their copy at

There are some important changes:

1. Raylight now supports the authoring of P2 Cards. You can actually write directly to a card by exporting a DVCPROHD quicktime from FCP, and it is automatically converted to an MXF file on the card. It also works with DVCPRO50, DVCPRO and DV.

2. The price for new users is now $195, we had to raise the price because of new development and support costs.

3. Raylight Mac now requires product activation. The activation process is simple and be done on any computer through one webpage, The activation is keyed to each computer, so if you are using Raylight on multiple computers, you must purchase additional licenses (as was already required in the license agreement). Contact sales at for additional licenses or get them directly at
