Apple have updated their Quicktime codecs for Pro applications to version 1.0.2, adding support for more file formats

Apple have just released updates for their "Pro Video" applications: Final Cut Pro X, Motion and Compressor and to coincide with this they have also updated the Quicktime Pro codecs for the Mac platform.

About ProApps QuickTime Codecs v1.0.2
This update adds the following video codecs for use by QuickTime-based applications:
Apple Intermediate Codec

HDV
XDCAM HD / EX / HD422
MPEG IMX
Uncompressed 4:2:2
