Everybody knew that Apple shouldn't have killed off FCP7 when FCPX was released. Have Apple listened to their customers and put Final Cut Pro 7 back on the market?
Breaking news indeed if it proves to be true. But before you rush off to your nearest Apple store with your credit card in your hand, it is worth a look at the text in the MacRumours article.
"We received word that Apple had issued a memo this afternoon announcing re-availability of the product.
We confirmed with an Apple telesales representative at 800-MY-APPLE that Final Cut Studio, part number MB642Z/A, is again available for $999 and $899 for educational customers. The product is only available through the 800-number and is not available in Apple Retail Stores or on the Apple Online Store."
Will it eventually be back on shelves in stores and stocked on the online Apple store? We don't know but this is certainly a move in the right direction to healing the would that FCPX created with some editors, companies and broadcasters.
Updated on Friday morning with this confirmation on The Loop
“As we’ve done before with many end-of-life software products, we have a limited quantity of Final Cut Studio still available through Apple telesales to customers who need them for ongoing projects,” an Apple spokesperson told The Loop.
