Surely this old piece of NLE operation is old news? Or has Apple got a more advanced plan using this patent? Could the new Apple data centre, the new iMovie and a new MobileMe account be the first inroads into cloud editing?
The Lion Roars - Scrollable Menus and Toolbars Patented in OS X Lion, New FCP GUI also in the Pipeline?
Recently Apple's CEO Steve Jobs detailed some new attributes coming with OS X Lion. What Jobs didn't reveal was "scrollable menus and toolbars" which Patently Apple discovered, came to light in a new European patent filing.
Update: ''1-6_Right-Project'' - the project name was from the FCP6 demo material we're informed by reliable source.
Many performance problems resolved and lots of enhancements in this new upgrade. To find out what, read on.
Another Apple patent this time in the video field. Custom themes and dropzone usage when making DVDs gets wrapped up in 'Creating a theme used by an authoring application to produce a multimedia presentation'
How could we possibly miss the chance to show Beyonce working FCP? She complains it is all a bit complicated, but they could have at least bought her a dedicated keyboard. Video after the break.
We all got a bit excited when we saw this free App from the VFX tracking experts The Pixel Farm. More info & download links after the break.
Always nice to see a newcomer making tutorials for Apple ProApps products. In this tutorial Jimmy Lee from iMotion Video shows us how to add glows to animating text in Motion. Coloured snow flakes. Very seasonal.
Today is a very sad day for a lot of small developers as they can't submit their applications or plugins to the new Mac App Store as they don't meet the requirements.
Good news for all those DaVinci fans out there. Blackmagic Design has certified Cubix's GPU-Xpander Desktop for use with DaVinci Resolve for Mac v7.1!
Ever wanted to know when an FCP render has finished? Well now you can. And by the time you get back from getting that all important coffee you should have a message waiting.
“Render Notification 1.0.2” by Josh Petok from the current cut. It is a nice little script that watches the processor usage of a few pre-selected apps and will email you when the load goes down. In other words it alerts you to your render finishing. To find out more about it go here. There's also a useful suicide script for killing off a hung After Effects at the same link.
Well we have featured rap songs about Canon cameras, After Effects and more, so why not have an "in your face" rap about ProRes?
One would imagine that this would be the way of isolating and removing background noise or hum via interaction with a graphical display.
You knew something as important as the cancelleation of the XServe would end up like this. Worth watching just for the Mac Mini line.
When the Oscars hit on Feb 27th, Apple may not go on stage to receive an award but it will be well represented by award winners. In the Documentary Feature and Short categories 9 out of 10 of this year's nominees used Final Cut Studio in making their films.
There have been a few rumours that we have stumbled across about an FCP8 update but nothing we could really peg any thing on. Not any more, Techcrunch has stuck its head out and published.

Wow! Two great bits of FCP news in two days. The new MacBook Pros that have been released today feature 'Thunderbolt' Apples branding of Light Peak technology from Intel.
A great video of Thunderbolt in action to finish off an interesting day. Apologies if the video above takes time to load, but hey that's Flash:)
It has been a few crazy days of Apple news and we've loved every leak, tweet and article that we have come across. However it is only now that we are coming to realise how massive the new announcements really are. Prepare for a shock...
With all the excitement about the new Final Cut Pro, nobody has mentioned the possible fate of its little brother, Final Cut Express. I think there will be two possible outcomes and you just might be surprised at one of them...
***Updated with embedded event video***
So no news from Apple about Final Cut Pro at the iPad2 event. However Randy Ubillos who headed up the team that gave birth to Final Cut over 10 years ago, was on stage to talk about iMovie. Is there anything we can learn?
