Supported cameras and codecs
Our initial release of BulletProof supports Canon DSLRs, Nikon DSLRs and GoPro cameras. We chose these cameras because they represent the needs of a broad market, which includes indie filmmakers and small productions. Bulletproof recognizes footage from these cameras and codecs; we recommend using a card reader for the offload process.

Future support for cameras & codecs
Our current plans for BulletProof includes adding additional support for cameras, codecs and platforms. The next few rounds of updates planned will be FREE and will focus on adding the most requested cameras and codec types as well as new features. We've heard many requests for the codecs MFX and AVCHD and we're taking them into consideration. Let us know what you'd like to see supported in future release on our BulletProof forum. Below are the cameras and codecs that are currently supported.
10.6.8 (Snow Leopard)
10.7.2 and later (Lion)
10.8 and later (Mountain Lion)

Most Nvidia and Radeon cards are compatible with BulletProof. 512MB is required when working in high definition resolutions. If you have two monitors and are working in HD resolution, the video card should have at least 1GB of VRAM for the smoothest playback and export speeds.
NOTE: Cards with 256 MB of VRAM or less will have playback issues with HD footage and are not supported. We also know there are issues with the ATI Radeon X1900; this card is not supported.
