Final Cut Pro X is up!

Wow!  I nearly thought it wasn't going to drop today!

Apple's Press Release: Apple Revolutionizes Video Editing With
Final Cut Pro X

“Final Cut Pro X is the biggest advance in Pro video editing since the original Final Cut Pro,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. “We have shown it to many of the world’s best Pro editors, and their jaws have dropped.”

Answering the Questions
Philip Hodgetts answers all his unanswered questions, including:
  • Does Final Cut Pro X really work with native formats or does it transcode?
  • Can I import a Final Cut Pro 7 (or 6) project?
  • Will we be able to switch the Final Cut Pro X layout to a more traditional 2-monitor setup? [NO!]
  • What about Log and Capture/Tape Capture?
and more.

Larry Jordan Speaks Freely
A long post with his thoughts. He's going to miss Soundtrack Pro:
Soundtrack Pro, DVD Studio Pro, and Color are not in this release. (LiveType was discontinued when FCP 7 came out.)

We all have our favorites, but I will miss Soundtrack Pro the most.

Ripply Has Training.
Big shock here; Ripply releases it's training for Final Cut Pro X
Ripple: Apple Pro Video Series - Final Cut Pro X

Buy (and download) from the App store: Final Cut Pro - Apple® $299
Motion - Apple® $49.99
Compressor - Apple®$49.99
Get it through these links and support the blog!

So Motion is $49.99 and so is Compressor. With no upgrade pricing, if you previously own Final Cut Studio that means you're paying an extra $100 to upgrade this time.

I want that round of applause Apple got at the SuperMeet back!
