We were going to try and not mention that three lettered acronym for the whole of today until we found this. Andrew Baum, Product Marketing Manager heads up this Apple video presentation from 1999 of Final Cut Pro 1. Some of the messages are curiously familiar.
After yesterdays Twitter storm, this cannot be further removed from our favourite NLE's evolution. What is interesting is a lot of the messages are the same. We think Andrew went on to become the product manager for Cinewave. There are some interesting comments from him on this old blog from November 2000. We looked back at the web pages of previous versions of FCP, 1 to 7 in an earlier article.
Many thanks again to Michael Horton for digging this up and Chris for bringing it to our attention.
