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.
Apple Press demo shows Thunderbolt and FCP running 4 streams of uncompressed HD on the 15" MBP peaking at 600MB/s
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.
There will be many products released soon that feature Thunderbolt, but LaCie has got in there first. Take a look at the tiny "Little Big Disk" 500GB of SSD.
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...
***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?
We loved this and thought we would share. Greg Clarke at Intelligent Assistance sent it to Larry, well at least he now has a link to direct people to!
If you haven't got your hands on one yet, then take a look at this iPad demo video from Apple. Could some of the features shown here in iMovie find their way into the new Final Cut Pro?
You can now buy a MacPro from the online Apple Store with a whopping 64 Gig of RAM pre-installed. You are probably going to need as much RAM as possible when the new FCP is released, so start saving!
We were the first to break the news about the dialogue search software 'Get' having its price halved from $499 to $249. This led to a few rumours about Get being incorporated into the new 'Jaw dropper' Final Cut Pro 8.
It started with a tweet from @editorslounge and by the end of the day had grown into the biggest piece of Final Cut Pro news since Larry Jordan dropped his jaw.
Check this out if you want to get the latest buzz on the new FCP and what's going to be what in NLE in the near future. The March 2011 Editors' Lounge was the 8th year of their annual NAB discussion panel and featured an influential panel of guest speakers: Steve Cohen, Terence Curren, Mark Raudonis, Michael Bravin and Lucas Wilson. The second part of the discussion after the break.
It will be the last because from tonight when the 'new' FCP is demoed at the SuperMeet, FCP7 will named the 'old' Final Cut Pro. Tonight will be a watershed...
Wow, another video that smacks us over the head with a piece of information about FCP & FCPX that leaves us stunned. Looks like Apple thought their completed 64bit FCP8 was a dead end.
