What would all of you suggest for an FCP switcher...should one jump at the opportunity of getting MC 5.5 for half price or wait for the new version MC 6. Will an upgrade be possible with MC 6 I'm digg

I notice when I try to set the bitrate as high as possible, the max comes up to 144,000. Now my problem is, I'm not sure if this is the max or I'm limited. I think my h.264 codec bitrate setting is da
